The idea of providing an exceptional buyer or seller experience while saving our clients millions in commissions is very appealing. In fact many of our clients and suppliers like the concept so much that they have become Realtors or members of our Executive teams. We are growing like crazy and people with real vision, heart & desire are naturally attracted to the PC275 Team.
The founders of this exciting adventure are Dustin Pritchard & Andrew Crook. First letters of the founders last names and the listing rate of 2.75% made up PC275. We started off calling our brokerage “Pritchard & Crook Real Estate Brokerage Inc.” but that was quite the mouthful and not a brandable name that would allow us to expand around the world.
The PC275 concept started on April 1st 2012 where Dustin & Andrew learned how to deliver exceptional service to sellers for only 2.75%. From there the company has grown by leaps and bounds year over year.
Well…our question is why would you NOT want to guarantee great service for your clients? Our slogan is Real Service. Great Price. Feel Good. for a reason. It is part of the core of who we are as a company and we believe in this so strongly that we put this in writing with every one of our amazing buyer and seller clients.
Because 2.5% was too low! All kidding aside we spent countless hours developing our commission structure around providing our Sellers with the very best, full service home selling experience while charging the least amount possible. Gone are the days that Realtors should get away with overcharging for little or no service and a high failure rate.
Sell for only 2.75% Total Commission
While our success rate for selling your home is MUCH higher than the competition on average no one can guarantee a sale. A sale is contingent on price, presentation, location and how many viable buyers are in the market for your type of home. However, we sell 84% of our listings. This is a 27% better chance than what other Realtors average at other brokerages! We also sell our listings 6 days faster than the competition and average our sellers 99% of the list price in their pockets…that is almost 2% better than the competition. That means we sell a lot faster and get you MORE money in your pocket than the other guys. We do ALL OF THIS for only 2.75% total commission.

NO, they don’t get less than they are traditionally paid. Buyers agents are paid 2% on the transaction which is what they expect to be paid for bringing offers. PC275 takes .75% on the listing side and our entire listing process has been designed to give the very best listing experience in the industry for this low price. The other agents seem to approve as we sell hundreds and hundreds of homes every year and most are sold by agents at other brokerages.

We will arrange a date and time with our logistics team who will arrange photos, sign install, directional signs and place a secure lockbox at your property.
First and foremost our duty is to our clients. We sell so many homes that the commission we earn from one sale does NOT make us desperate.

90% of all buyers start their search online. First and foremost we market your home on the MLS. This is where most of the buyers are located. Realtors have an internal system that allows new listings to be sent to buyers via email the moment the listing comes available. Next we post your listing on our website at PC275.com which receives well over 12,000 LOCAL buyers and sellers per month. On top of that we syndicate your listing with most of the other Real Estate Brokerages in town so your listing will appear on their websites too! Next we post your listing to Kijiji, Facebook, Google and twitter so that our thousands of LOCAL followers are exposed to your home. We will also print flyers, feature sheets & print ads and distribute them in your neighborhood when doing an open house. Finally, your listing is emailed to every one of our Realtors so that their buyers are notified immediately that we have a new listing that they should see. In addition to all of the above your PC275 Realtor will conduct additional marketing on your behalf to their buyers and spheres of influence online and offline. Your listing is exposed to every conceivable buyer in North America that is searching for your type of property. We don’t just list homes...we sell homes!
Note: Print Advertising is a VERY outdated method of exposure in today’s real estate market. Real estate magazines and other papers have proven to have an extremely low yield in buyer calls and viewings compared to online advertising methods. Not only that they are exorbitantly expensive which can lead to Realtors charging very high commissions. PC275 does print advertising but will concentrate most of the effort online where the buyers are actually looking for homes.
Questions from PC275 Buyer Clients
Absolutely! Some people think that we only list homes however our Realtors are extremely talented and professional buyer representatives as well. Most of our sellers are buyers and we specialize in handling the entire move for our clients. Our motto is “Find the right home at a great price or we keep looking!”
Not very often. The listing agent is contractually obligated to get the best price and terms for the seller. When you ask the sellers representative to take care of you the Realtor has to step back and offer less advice to both parties in order to stay impartial. To do otherwise is simply working for a paycheck, not the best interests of your clients. However, when we represent both sides at PC275, which is called Multiple Representation, we offer our clients the ability to get independent advice and representation from other members of the PC275 team so they have their best interests taken care of. We provide this service at no additional charge as we believe in giving our clients the best service possible.
Your very first steps are to sit down with your PC275 Realtor to go over your Needs & Wants. Our team of professionals are trained to truly listen to their buyer clients and make a list of must haves and would like to haves. They are armed with specific knowledge of communities, amenities, commute information, transportation, all the different schools for your children and much more. To us you are not just buying a house, you are buying a home that comes with a lifestyle. Our team is trained to help you achieve the lifestyle you are looking for.
An Exclusive listing is a home that is NOT on the MLS. Many sellers want to renovate their home or time the market to coincide with personal needs and goals. PC275 Realty has quite a few “Exclusive” listings where they are not on the MLS yet and our special buyers are given access prior to getting listed. This is your chance to beat out other buyers before there is a lot of competition. Ask your PC275 Realtor today about our Exclusive Listings.
Not all of them. Our Realtors are trained to scour Kijiji, Google, Facebook, FSBO companies and dozens of other websites for properties not listed on the MLS. Not only will we set you up to receive new properties that hit the market our Realtors will go to extreme lengths to help you find your home. We will even knock on doors in desired neighborhoods!

Getting preapproved for a mortgage is absolutely necessary. Banking rules change all the time and even if you have a mortgage now you may not qualify for the same mortgage next week. Alternatively you may qualify for a lot more house than you originally thought! Its best to know before shopping for a home so you can seize the day when your dream home comes on the market! We would be very happy to arrange for our in house mortgage broker to meet with you.
In most cases it is best to list your home before you buy. Unless you are able to carry 2 mortgages getting your home sold is a priority. However we have had many clients buy a home before their home has sold…not a problem, either way your PC275 Realtor will guide you through the process so you have a stress free experience.
