Hello! My name is Christopher Rout, and I’m the full time associate broker with One Percent Realty. I specialize in the Lethbridge and Foothills area.
I started real estate straight out of high school 28 years ago…yup, I was ‘that guy’ who knew in school what he wanted to do after graduation. In fact, my family was also in real estate, so I learned at an early age the ins and outs of the business. Like many agents I started my career at a major franchise (think ‘hot air balloon…they don’t let me say the name…lol). During that time I built my business up to a from an individual agent to an award winning team. We were fortunate enough to win many local and national awards….blah blah blah, this is stuff only agents care about. What you’re wondering is why I would leave a successful national brand to join One Percent and what service will I provide for the small fee we charge, right!?
Well, not only did I love the idea of One Percent, but I was the owner. Here’s the quick story….one day while working for ‘that high commission office’ I listed and sold my own home. It sold in less than a day, but I still had to pay half of the commission (2.5%) to the buyer’s agent. That’s when it hit me! Why am I paying so much when everything is all online? After some research into the area of commissions, I realized I ‘needed to skate to where the puck was going, not where it is (Wayne Gretzky). I jumped at the One Percent Realty opportunity and have enjoyed every day of it!
We only charge $7950 to list AND sell! And our rate INCLUDES the buyer’s agent commission!
