Thank You For Your Visit

Dear Potential Client,

After more than 30 years of being a real estate professional I have learned very clearly that not all realtors are created equally. In fact there are BIG differences!

It is true that most people know a realtor, or of a realtor, it could be a friend, a relative, or a friend of a friend. There is no limit on the number of licensed realtors by our real estate boards and experience in real estate, selling, negotiating and marketing is simply not required.

You may be seeing the signs everywhere, "Real Estate Licence in 5 Weeks". Can you believe that five weeks? Today anyone can become a realtor quickly, order business cards, join any company you want such as Sutton or Remax, by just paying their monthly charges along with the Board fees. But does that qualify them to negotiate on your behalf with your most important asset?

I have found that in residential real estate perception is everything, even with the leading performers in the industry. How can any agent properly market, promote and negotiate so many listings at the same time and give the seller the level of personal service they deserve?

Many agents use unlicensed assistants to show their listings, but they are not permitted to say anything that could be viewed as selling, such as highlighting attributes of a property? Essentially most assistants are there to unlock the doors. As a seller you should think about who is showing your property and what are their qualifications and skill levels?

I hold the higher Associate Brokers License, held by less than 10% of all realtors, which denotes a much greater level of industry experience and education. I show all of my listings personally and I am actively engaged in promoting and selling your home. I use all of my experience to negotiate top dollar for my clients and I am absolutely committed to getting them the best results.

Rory Sutter is a strategic Realtor. He listed and sold my mom’s house in less than a week. What’s impressive is how he scheduled the showings to get 3 multiple offers. The viewings were scheduled close enough together to ensure everyone knew there were other interested parties, thus creating a sense of urgency. Pricing the house right is key. She got her asking price thanks to Rory.

July Ono – Professional Real Estate Investor, Educator and Mentor (From July News)
I work 100% for my clients exclusively and have never signed a dual agency agreement in my career when they were permitted. I believe in having undivided loyalty to the people I serve.

Through the years I have worked with thousands of realtors on both sides of the fence. I was trained by the world's largest and most successful real estate brokerage company Colliers International, where I served an apprenticeship under one of their top agents, although I came to the company as a top salesman with my real estate license. I practiced a highly disciplined work ethic and honed my sales and negotiating skills over seven years.

Following Colliers, I worked on property acquisitions and project marketing through my company Realstar Corporation and later was recruited by B.C.'s top developer to manage their property acquisitions and I negotiated individual contracts in the tens of millions.

With more than 30 years of hands-on real estate industry experience I have found that my greatest enjoyment comes from real estate sales negotiation - this is where I shine.

I love to set goals with my clients in our first meeting based upon what would be their best outcome. How could I make it a 10+? I believe what you focus on you get and I prefer to focus on the most favorable outcomes. The best part is and my testimonies will show is when at the end my clients see that we realized the best case scenario.

You see it is a partnership. You are hiring me to work with you to realize the best possible outcome for your family. This includes negotiating a favorable price, writing the best offers with good terms, dates and deposits, finding another home, minimizing disruption of your family life, assisting you in all aspects of the sale, advising you, answering your questions and ensuring that your interests are protected at all times.

I take these responsibilities very seriously and only ask that in spite of who you may know as an agent simply interview me for the job as a candidate. Please allow me to apply for the job. Meet me and let me show you how I sell homes for top dollar and help my clients to buy right in any market.
