The 9.6% Report

Compensated cooperation guarantees that equitable co-brokerage fees are paid on all properties, and not only to brokers within the same company, but to any and all outside brokers involved. When fees and buyer pools are shared, properties generate a higher demand and price, resulting in the most value for everyone involved.


50% Commission. 100% of the Time.

We believe in sharing fees to give incentive to a wider network of buyers. With an expansive network comes higher visibility and increased demand, resulting in a higher value for clients.

Rental Housing Supply Alliance of Canada*

The Rental Housing Supply Alliance of Canada* is a group of builders, developers and innovators who care strongly about getting new purpose built rental housing constructed across Canada.

Currently, a steering committee is being formed, we will work with all like-minded organisations who support the construction and viability of rental housing across the country.

Far too often government policies, regulations and taxes serve as a disincentive to invest in and build rental housing.  The RHSAC will work with governments and stakeholders to get these problems fixed and ensure rental housing construction is strong and viable in Canada.

Our advocacy is at all three orders of government – federal, provincial and municipal – with one goal in mind.  Getting new rental housing built in markets all across Canada.
