Client Review
Fred and Hope Woods - 2021
"I would like to take this minute to highly recommend Bronwyn Rodrigues, and the value she brings to anybody considering selling or buying real estate in the Ottawa area. To start, the One Percent business model is completely fair, and Bronwyn is proud that she introduced that business model to Ottawa. Bronwyn also brought, to our table, a wealth of knowledge, communication, how to present the property to maximize value to buyers, realistic time expectations, etc. The most impressive trait was Bronwyn's ability to verbalize how the procedure of sale was going to happen, and the strategy that was going to be used. True to the plan, and 1 week later, we had 23 visits completed and 8 offers on the table. Here again, we trusted Bronwyn's business savvy to sift through the myriad of offers, and we accepted an approved offer on our home that was above asking with limited conditions. An event that could have been incredibly stressful, went down as a smooth calculated procedure, where we were able to capitalize on one of life's largest investments. As we leave Ontario, we wish Bronwyn continued success and know that she will remain a "Tour de Force" in the Ottawa and surrounding area's real estate industry." Hope and Fred Woods

"Bronwyn is a top notch real estate agent. She sold our house in a span of 24 hours for way over the asking price. She is very knowledgeable, a hard worker, a great communicator, extremely friendly, punctual, dedicated, and energetic. She patiently answered all of our questions (we had many!). You can tell that she truly cares and enjoys what she does. We really appreciate everything Bronwyn has done for us and are so happy we found her. Without hesitation we highly recommend her to all who are looking for an agent. As a bonus, you will also save thousands in real estate commission!"

"Our goal in selling our house was to do it quickly, and benefit from a hot market. We also wanted to save as much as we could on real estate fees and not be left with all kinds of paperwork, legal forms and areas that were beyond our scope. Enter Bronwyn Rodrigues! Her many years in the industry brought us the expertise we needed to sell our home painlessly. She gave us suggestions on fixing up and staging our home. She connected us with industry trades that helped us with inspections to ensure our home was where it needed to be when the “for sale” sign went up. Bronwyn was very personable, always professional, and on time for every meeting. She helped us sell our home in a week. Best of all we got substantially more for our house than what we were expecting, and her commission structure saved us thousands. 1 Percent realty is everything that a traditional real estate agent can offer and saves you thousands. We sincerely recommend Bronwyn. You will not be disappointed with her services."

Bronwyn made my home sale a great experience! She was a true professional providing honest feedback and recommendations to sell my home at top dollar. Bronwyn was very engaged and quick to act on any questions I had. Her attention to detail is second to none. Not only did she make my sale a great experience but she also helped me find a perfect home for my family. We are very thankful and love our new home. I would recommend Bronwyn to anyone looking for great service at an incredible price. - 2020

Bronwyn provided excellent advice in the sale of my house, knows the market, priced my house higher than I expected, which sold in two days, way above the asking price. She is very open, and on top of all communication; no waiting around to hear back from her. Bronwyn provided guidance, and her no-nonsense candid approach, gets the job done. Bronwyn knows her ‘stuff’, so no worries when it comes to negotiating, as her customers are her main concern, and in my case, her commission was much less than the buyer’s agent. This alone is a testament, that she’s not just in it for the money. I will definitely be recommending Bronwyn, and will be calling on her, when it’s time for me to buy again. Exceptional service all around!

We couldn't have been more pleased with Bronwyn’s extensive knowledge of the Real Estate industry. She was very helpful in getting us organized for the sale of our house. She was great at booking appointments that worked best with our schedule, and we feel like we got the best price for our house. We highly recommend Bronwyn.

I had an excellent experience last year with Bronwyn both selling and buying my home. With One Percent Reality I was able to save on some of the commission without having to sacrifice anything. Bronwyn took care of everything; she was extremely professional and personable and made the experience of buying a new place fun. She is honest and upfront about everything throughout the entire process and does not leave out any details or sugar coat anything either. I recommend her to my friends and I am already working with her again to get my rental unit filled. I know I can trust her to do an awesome job once again. Thanks Bronwyn!

Bronwyn managed to get our home sold in a very difficult market, and in time for us to close on our dream home. What more could you ask for! Her communication with us was stellar, providing periodic market updates; following up with us on appointments (of which we had many); and providing feedback throughout that process, empowering us to manage our presentation, as well as our expectations. Where her service was over and above was in her guidance to us in negotiating the purchase of our dream home, which was done private sale, where she received no commission for, just out of the kindness of her heart. Thanks Bronwyn!

I met with Bronwyn about one year ago to discuss selling my townhouse. At the time, there were many houses similar to mine that were on sale and the market was moving slow. She recommended a number of improvements that I needed to do to the house in order to compete. I liked her “tell it like it is” style and it was obvious to me that she had a good grasp of the market. I knew that when I was really ready I would list with her. About 9 months later, I was finally ready for market. We received a very good offer in about a month. Everything happened quickly and without me having to do much but keeping the place presentable. I have recommended her already on a couple of occasions and would not hesitate to do so again. Thanks Bronwyn!

I have purchased a lot of houses over the years of my life in the military and by far Bronwyn has been the best agent I have worked with. Prior to meeting her I was looking at random house’s by calling the agents to review the homes they had listed. Bronwyn happen to be selling one of the homes that I wanted to view. After meeting her and not feeling the pressure of becoming her client, it was then I decided she was the agent I wanted to deal with. She was very knowledgeable in the Ottawa housing market and very direct in what she thought was a fair housing price. I never felt pressured by her in buying a house and she was always available. She took the time to understand what I was looking for and provided excellent professional advice. She proved to me that One Percent was the best way to go and having her as my agent. She is an excellent realtor and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to buy or sell a house!

My wife and I contemplated the idea of "For Sale by Owner" because of past dealings with Real Estate Agents that only see you as another pay cheque and don't have your best interests in mind. A friend recommended Bronwyn to us, so we decided to meet with her to get a better understanding of what One Percent is all about. We were so impressed with Bronwyn after that meeting; we knew she was the Agent for us. Bronwyn is a down to earth, no nonsense, straight shooter that has a genuine desire to help clients sell their home and save money. Bronwyn spent the time to get to know us and our home. She made recommendations for some minor changes throughout the house to increase the curb appeal and flow. She also gave us ideas for staging the rooms to make sure our potential buyers could see themselves living in this house. After just over 2 weeks with Bronwyn's expertise, our home was sold. Bronwyn has been an incredible Agent and Guide through the stresses and challenges of selling a home. We will continue to recommended Bronwyn and One Percent Realty to our family and friends. Thank you so much Bronwyn for all your hard work, we really appreciate it.

We had never heard of One Percent Realty but the concept was very interesting to us so we contacted Bronwyn and we were very impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market in Ottawa and her attention to detail. She worked very hard for us and was always easy to reach and approachable. We had a very short timeline in which to sell our house and Bronwyn always had ideas and solutions to any issues we had along the way. She helped us sell our house in time to move into our new home. And we saved on the commission! Excellent work Bronwyn.

We tried to sell our house the year before without success, the agent we had at that time had very minimal contact with us during the 4 month period our house was listed and we were never sure of what was going on. That experience left us stressed, confused and unsure how to proceed. We waited a year and came across Bronwyn Rodrigues' sign in our area and decided to look into One percent. We contacted Bronwyn and it turned out to be the best decision we've made. Bronwyn provided us with excellent service, weekly updates, and continuous advice and sold our home, in this current difficult market, at 99% of our asking price. But it did not stop there; Bronwyn went above and beyond in facilitating the purchase of our new house which meets all of our needs. If you are looking for an agent who will work for you, and look out for your best interest you HAVE to call Ms Bronwyn Rodrigues. Thank you Bronwyn we were so lucky to find you.

We have bought and sold several homes in Ottawa, the last two in Central Park. We decided to go with One Percent Realty simply because we didn't want to pay the usual 5% that most realtors charge. We basically chose Bronwyn as our agent based on her picture and my first conversation with her when I called for information. She was professional, friendly, and most of all met with us the same day to discuss the past and current market activity that had occurred in our neighborhood over the past year. She is definitely a no-nonsense type of agent that demonstrated knowledge and passion for what she does. We sold our house quickly and she continued to follow up and keep us informed promptly and consistently. She is extremely organized and eager to please. Her service was top-notch and we would definitely recommend her to our friends and family. Thank you Bronwyn for all your hard work and we wish you much success in your career.

My husband and I have moved and bought a few homes across Canada in the last several years due to employment transfers. We are well versed when it comes to buying or selling a home and have experienced the good and the not so pleasant in the world of real estate. Over the years we've come to the conclusion that most Agents demand a commission that far exceeds the work they actually do. In this market where real estate’s practically sells itself through Real Estate search engines, it is a wonder how Agent still feel entitled to such a payout. Which brings me to why we chose ‘One Percent Realty’? They simply get it. I'll be honest; we chose Bronwyn based on her picture and write up alone. When we met her for the first time we knew we were dealing with a no-nonsense kind of girl who wasn't afraid to challenge us with her own knowledge of the real estate business (we thought we knew it all.... she knows more). She understands her audience and knows how to adapt and personalize her approach when dealing with potential buyers/sellers and their respective agents. When it comes right down to it, Bronwyn has the best interests of her clients at heart and prides herself on being ethical and true to her word. We witnessed firsthand her hard work and determination when she managed to get our house on the market a day before the long Easter weekend. As a result, our house sold on Good Friday in less than 24 hours. In short, we would definitely recommend Bronwyn to anyone who wishes to either buy or sell their home. The fact that she chose to establish and affiliate herself with One Percent Realty says a lot about her character and her common sense. Thank you again Bronwyn for all your hard work and for the laughs!!!

We had never heard of One Percent Realty but the idea was amazing. Why pay high commission for a Real Estate agent when a flat fee approach was available. We did not feel confident in selling our house ourselves, so we contacted One Percent. We asked to speak to an agent and Bronwyn was first to respond. Right from the start we knew we were in good hands. She offered up suggestions and advice and helped us sell our home very quickly. She was also terrific in helping us find a new home as well, especially in such a small window of time. She was professional, reliable and always there when we had questions or concerns. She made what was a very difficult and stressful time feel manageable and positive with her attitude and humour. We have no plans to move anytime soon, but should we decide to, we will definitely use One Percent and Bronwyn again, and have been recommending her to all of our friends and family.

Bronwyn Rodrigues is an excellent realtor. We can't say enough about her professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients. We purchased a home through Bronwyn and really connected on a personal level, so a few weeks later we called upon her to help us sell our house. She made some very helpful recommendations for preparing our home before putting it on the market. With her help we were able to sell our house quickly and minimize the real estate costs. We found working with Bronwyn a joy and felt like she was there to help us during every step of the processes. We would certainly recommend Bronwyn and One Percent Reality to anyone looking to sell or buy their property. While we have bought and sold a number of houses, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence.

“As a member of the military for 37 years, I have relocated often and have employed realtors on many occasions. All the realtors I've employed have been very good; however, Bronwyn during this transaction exceeded all my expectations. I was selling my rental property in Ottawa and was unable to travel from my residence in Victoria BC. I hired Bronwyn because she had successfully sold condominiums similar to, and in the area of my property. From the start, Bronwyn was on top of the situation, she ensured the condominium was well staged and on the market quickly. Immediately we had a buyer but there was a great deal of negotiation and Bronwyn put in long hours processing offers and counter offers. In addition she addressed issues with the washing machine and hot water on demand boiler. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the furniture was moved out just prior to closing, damaging some walls and leaving the living area less than move in ready. With no time left to hire someone, Bronwyn personally sorted out these problems and we closed without delay. I would definitely use Bronwyn for any real estate transactions in the future and will recommend her and One Percent Realty to my family and friends.”

We sold our house thanks to Bronwyn at One Percent Realty”. She is the best real estate agent we have ever had and we have had quite a few over the years! Bronwyn is a straight shooter with a great sense of humor, who understands the market and real estate pricing…. She gets the job done! She helped to sell our house during a slow time when it was considered a ‘buyers market’ with a large inventory of houses for sale with people looking, but not buying. Bronwyn kept us updated with feedback after an open house or each showing we had. Also, on a weekly basis we received an email updating us on the activity of listed houses in our area. It was a positive experience working with Bronwyn and would definitely recommend her and One Percent Realty for anyone looking to list their home! Thanks for everything Bronwyn, you are the best!

It was a pleasure to have Ms. Rodriques serve as my agent. I enjoyed her sensibility and directness throughout the working relationship. Our sale faced a number of problems, one being the weather. Ms. Rodriques ploughed ahead, kept things moving and up to date. She was calm, smart working and diligent, and she was honest about the market and expectations. I do wish that all buyers would consider signing themselves up with a 1% agent. The buying agent doesn’t do half the work that the selling agent does, so why should the seller pay that buyer’s agent a higher commission than the seller’s agent? I received the same attention, details, open houses, same website coverage, availability etc. from a 1% realtor.

Bronwyn Rodrigues helped us sell our home and buy a new property in a very short time span. We are very pleased with the service we received; we feel that she went above and beyond expectations when it came to arranging the deals that we wanted. She is a very knowledgeable and professional agent who we will be recommending to all of our friends and colleagues for a long time to come. We were able to count on Bronwyn to handle any obstacles that would have otherwise stood in our way. If you’re reconsidering buying or selling a home you should definitely give her a call, you won’t regret it.

We just wanted to thank you for your commitment, dedication and professional expertise in selling our home in such a short period of time. The street side information sheets, detailed fact book on the house for potential buyers to review, listings on MLS, Kijiji, Twitter and Facebook, plus the great photos and attention to details are but some of the many factors that resulted in a successful outcome. You are a great realtor and a delight to work with. Again, thank you for your professionalism.

Never have I encountered such an amazing real estate agent and person. We had a rental property me and my husband were planning on selling after our current tenants moved out... Around the same, my husband was stricken with an illness and was hospitalized for 1 and a half month straight. The tenants left the property an absolute mess. Bronwyn took care of absolutely everything and more! She coordinated and oversaw cleaning, painting, handy work and locksmith at the best price possible. She got the property ready to sell in a record amount of time and sold it in 2 weeks over asking price. We honestly don’t know what we would have done without you Bronwyn. I can’t recommend you enough. We will be forever thankful. We did not have to worry about anything related to the property during these difficult times and that was priceless.

When we had to sell our home in Ottawa to move out to BC we wanted to hire an agent that could not only sell the house quickly, but also minimize the commission fees that we would have to pay. We turned to Bronwyn Rodrigues from One Percent Realty in Ottawa. We were under pressure to sell our house as we were renting for a short amount of time and needed to find a home for our family sooner than later. While we wanted to minimize our selling agency costs, we were also worried that doing so would "black list" our property by the conventional real estate agencies and that we wouldn't get as many showings as we would otherwise get. Bronwyn took up the challenge we presented: to sell our house in the first 2 weeks, in stride and assured us that our capacity to sell our house would not be prejudiced as a result of using One Percent Realty versus a conventional 5% agency. As a result, our house sold within the first two days of showing and we had a fair bit of negotiation power with regards to the buying agent's commission. If you are serious about selling your house and want to maximize the return on the work and care that you put into your house, then Bronwyn of One Percent Realty is a valuable ally and guide. Do not be fooled by conventional agents who push the 5% commission scheme or let them bully you into thinking that you need to go the usual route.

We first met Bronwyn at an open house. It was instantly evident that we were dealing with someone who both loved her job and knew her stuff. She made a great first impression on us, as a few months later we called upon Brownyn to sell our house. We are very happy that she said yes. Brownyn's work ethic is second to none. She is a great communicator, who promptly returns calls and emails, and always keeps us in the loop as to what is going on with our house and the local market in general. She also has fantastic attention to detail. We were so impressed with the look of our house after implementing her suggestions, we almost had second thoughts about selling it. We definitely made the right choice in having Bronwyn sell our house, and would do so again in an instant. We would also absolutely recommend Bronwyn to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Thank you, Bronwyn!

Bronwyn Rodrigues did an amazing job selling my house. Her knowledge of the area in which I was selling my home was accurate. She was able to recommend an asking price that resulted in a fast and profitable sale. She also recommended that I get my own home inspection - even though I was the seller. I believe this was an incredibly smart thing to do, to show potential buyers that the house was sound. I am very satisfied with the level of service Bronwyn provided and would definitely recommend her.
