Support From Full Commission Agents
Please understand that a good home, well priced, will sell! .. Any honest and truthful real estate agent knows this. If your home is well kept and priced accurately, it will sell .. It has no relationship with the amount of commission that you pay .. Most buyers do their own searching on the internet, etc., even when they are working with another agent.
If you have heard anything negative as to why One Percent Realty Vancouver Island won’t be able to sell your home as well as any full commission agent .. Remember that it is just not so! .. Good buyer agents find the right homes for their client, not homes where they make the most money.
We have a proven record with cooperating, full commission agents .. As of this date, we have dealt with 100’s of cooperating, professional agents that have shown and sold our listings. Thanks to them and their support, we are among the top discount commission agents in the country (as evidenced by statistics supplied by the Victoria Real Estate Board).
If you are confused as to why most real estate agents will not discuss ‘giving you a break’ on commission when they list your home for full commission, and then perhaps even help you purchase a new home ……….. Then you should consider our BUYER CASH REBATE!
We felt totally confident in Guy’s ability to get the job done for the best possible price with the full service that we expected. We saved thousands of dollars on fees and even received a BONUS rebate when he helped us find our new home

A very good experience with the 1% Guy. He was the agent for both the sale of my home (which sold for full list price on the 1st day!) and for the purchase of our new home, on which we received a large REBATE from his commission
Guy sold our condo in 6 days and we saved $4,025! Guy also found us our new home. Guy shared part of his commission with us. How often do you get money back when buying a home? Guy truly is the ‘1% Guy’

To an interested party with regard to Ray Kong
It has been my real benefit to have been associated with Ray Kong of Fair Realty for the past three months.
The house I asked him to sell for me was a dated dwelling in a desirable spot in Victoria. Nothing has been done to make the house saleable except the usual cleaning and tightening. But becuase of the unexciting nature of the house when it was put up for sale, the burden was on Ray to make the sale. In spite of the difficulties Ray was elegant in not putting the blame on the house or on me- but patiently looked for bright spots to emphasize, and especially, also to keep an optimistic spirit throughout.
I have recommended to friends and will continue to do this and to consider him when I have another occasion to require a realtor.
We wanted to relocate within a few months, so wanted to sell within 2 months. The first agents we interviewed didn't seem too interested in helping us. Then we asked Ray to look through our home and were impressed with Ray's professional attitude and knowledge. Ray recommended an appropriate asking price, and within 2 weeks of listing it was sold. This quick sale was no doubt due to the experience and integrity that Ray brought to the process, when adding in the reasonable pricing we have no hesitation in recommending Ray for any real estate dealings.

We were very happy with our decision to use Ray Kong as our realtor in selling our home. Our home sold in under a week and that was in no small part due to his actions. Ray was perpared and professional in all of our dealings. His market evaluation was extremely thorough and his advice was useful and obviously based on a lot of experience. He was quick with getting the house on the market and in setting up open houses. Ray was easy to contact or very timely in returning our calls or emails if we had any queries. Most of all, we appreciated Ray's straightforward and honest approach without any kind of sales hype or pressure. We would be delighted to work with him again and recommend him highly.

I would like to thank you so much for the excellent job you did selling my home. In just two days! and for my asking price! that was beyond my expectations!
I would be delighted to recommend you Ray to my friends or anyone buying or selling a home as I know they too would receive the same courteous professional expertise and prompt attention that you extended to me. Please use my name as a contact for a very satisfied, happy client of a full service realtor.
We needed a realtor that would work for us with no hassles and we found Ray . We always meet over coffee which was convenient and relaxed. Ray is a friendly, personable and knowledgeable realtor. Our purchase was done quickly and efficiently with no problems. The other bonus is his 50% cash back offer. Be honest, who doesn't getting something back? We highly recommend Ray and would definitely call on him for future purchases.

We already had an unconditional offer to purchase a house accepted before we listed our own house for sale, so we were under significant pressure to complete the sale of our home. We had previously spoken to Ray so we had confidence that he would do a good job based on his past record and I am happy to say we were not disappointed!
Ray had an initial meeting with us showing us relevant local market information so that we arrived at a mutually agreed, realistic listing price, which incidentally was the same as a valuation by a "regular" agent.
He was efficient in listing our house and quickly organized a couple of open houses to generate interest. Several showings followed and when the first offer came in he called the other agents who had shown our property and we ended up with 3 competing offers. After some solid negotiation by Ray, we ended up with an accepted offer $10,000 over the listing price. In addition to that we saved thousands more in commissions.
The bottom line is that Ray lived up to his billing and provided fantastic service to us. The scare tactic used by other agents that our property would not be found by potential buyers and then not be shown by agents proved unfounded. Most buyers today find properties themselves using MLS online and in our case either the agents reluctantly agreed to show or the buyers came directly to Ray.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ray to any person(s) wanting to sell their property.

When my father moved into assisted living recently and decided to sell his house, my sisters and I were assigned the task of locating a realtor to list with. After interviewing a couple of realtors we decided to list with the 3rd realtor Ray Kong. From the first interview, Ray came prepared and organised. He prepared a prospectus which included the sale of similar homes in the area which allowed us to come up with a realistic listing price for the market.
He kept us informed during the period of the listing and the house was sold within a week. In addition, he negotiated well on our behalf to clear the potential hurdles of concluding the transaction and we were more than satisfied with the sale price.
Ray was professional, sincere, honest and very helpful in his suggestions to help effect the sale and we were more than pleased with his knowledge, commitment and professionalism. I would not hesitate to contact Ray when the time comes for me to sell my own home and would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a house.
