My wife and I have recently sold our home in Maple Ridge, B. C. The success of this venture rests mainly on the skill and expertise of Mr. John Carlson, a representative of One Percent Realty Ltd. The fact that John is member of the prestigious Medalion Club attests to his sales ability. We chose one percent realtors because of past experience when we sold an earlier home in Vancouver, B. C.; the advantages being, excellent service and commissions more favourable to the client.

At our first meeting, John submitted samples of a variety of house sales in our area, and explained in clear terms the procedure he would follow to ensure in detail how it would be to our advantage. True to his word, he went to work selling our house at the agreed price in a matter of weeks. We were encouraged by his informing us of the procedure each step of the way, and were relieved of any anxiety in the process. If we were ever in the position of selling or purchasing property in the future, John and 2% Realty would be our choice without exception.

We are pleased to provide an endorsement for the services provided to us by John Carlson and One Percent Realty.

We have just sold our long time family home and downsized as the kids have “left the nest.” To say we were “difficult” clients would be a gross understatement. Both of us are very busy working professionals with hectic schedules. We had special circumstances concerning showing times, our two very senior dogs, and a requirement for showings by appointment only.

John provided us with exceptional, professional and efficient realty services.

He was fabulous communicating with us (in all methods), was personable and enthusiastic, and went out of his way to make himself available to us given our crazy daily schedules. In addition, John understood not only our showing restriction circumstances, but was also sensitive to the fact we were selling a home with many years of happy family memories.

The old adage “you get what you pay for” is extremely flawed when you are referring to the real estate professional services provided by John Carlson. You get much more.

John sold our home for a price we were happy with at a fraction of the cost of other realty agencies. He also helped us find a fabulous new home in which to create many more happy memories in the years to come. We recommend John Carlson and the services of One Percent Realty without hesitation.

If you are seeking a professional, personable and very capable realtor, contact John Carlson. We are confident that you’ll have a fantastic client experience. We certainly did.

I first met John (briefly) when he was putting up a sign for a listing about three blocks from our home.  The property wasn’t in the best location, and I had heard a lot of “stuff” about 1% Realty—I was slightly pessimistic about the chances that they property would sell.  Nonetheless, my initial impression of John was positive.  I took note when that property sold in less than a month.

About two months later we had an opportunity to buy a property in another community that was a much better fit for our family, and we decided to put our Maple Ridge property up for sale.  I knew I could save some money using 1% realty so my first call was to John to see what he would do if I listed with him.  John met me at my house, did a walk through, and brought some comparable properties for me to consider.  I was very impressed with his professional approach, and his ability to showcase our house on his web site with professional-quality pictures both inside and out.  I made the decision to list the property with John with confidence.

That was on December 13th, 2013, just before our family left on vacation.  The following week I was surprised to see email that we had had several showings and an offer already!  John was a real pro in managing the multiple offers for us from a distance, and we actually sold the property while we were on vacation three time zones away!  Our fast sale was exactly what we needed to close on our other property, which we did.

I couldn’t be happier with the service and professionalism of John and his team, and I can recommend him without any hesitation to anyone interested in selling their property.

We have never used One Percent Realty before but we thought we’d give them a try and we could not have been more pleased with the results. John was very helpful and informative as we went through the process. He demonstrated diligence by pulling out all available comparables in the area so we could make an informed decision before settling on a listing price. He kept us up to date during the entire process through phone calls, meetings and text messages. We were never left wondering about what was happening and he was always open to our questions or concerns. The description, pictures, virtual tour and brochures of our house were superb and really showcased our house in the best possible light. Upon closing the sale, he was thorough and very patient about going through the contract with us to ensure we knew exactly what we were signing.  We would definitely use John again in the future and will recommend him to others.  Thank you, John!

Thank you for providing me with your excellent real estate service. You have been very thorough with your work and it is much appreciated. Before I chose you at ‘One Percent Realty’ to represent my townhome sale, I was concerned that I would receive inferior real estate service as I was paying you half the fee of other Real estate companies for the same work. I was thus pleasantly surprised and am happy to see that there are real estate companies out there that are willing to provide good real estate service to the community at a lower cost. Thank you also for your honesty in sharing your inside info of how real estate fees are shared amongst agents in completed sales. I will certainly be calling you when I have more work available! All the best with expanding your company!

Kindest regards,

John Carlson was my realtor for my home purchase in Coquitlam. Not only was he my real estate agent he was an advocate for me.
We talked about different neighbourhoods and discussed their character. He was able to work with my schedule to arrange a time to meet. It was fast-paced and John was able to discuss with me and prioritize elements in my purchase so that it went smoothly as possible and to close the deal. He was able to advocate on my behalf to get a price lower than the asking price. My home is a three bedroom two bath condo with a large patio in the heart of Coquitlam Centre close to the sky train. I am pleased with the result and I am making my place a comfortable home everyday.
Thanks John!
