From the first moment we first met Craig, we knew he was the realtor for us. He was open to our questions, honest with his feedback on the house and sale amount, and truly interested in helping us with the sale. We listed the house and within approximately 2 1/2 weeks it was sold above asking price. Craig was available to take our calls and to answer our questions. He provided constructive feedback on changes we needed to make to the house to get buyers through the door, and to maximize on the sale. Mary-Jean was also awesome. She kept us organized, and kept clients. We would highly recommend Craig if you are considering selling your house.

I can't thank Craig and his team enough for the job they did selling my duplex and helping me find a new home in my very short deadline. His experience helped me prep my home for selling, set the right price, and I knew what to expect next when the offer came in. It sold in 2 weeks! He got me into a perfect home very quickly and never pressured me to go more expensive than my comfortable price. He answered every question i had and was always in contact. You just can't beat all that knowledge for such a low commission. Thankyou so much Craig and team!
We were very happy to have Craig help us find the perfect home and in the perfect location for our family. Moving can be stressful and it helped knowing Craig was always available for questions and support. Craig offers lots of insight and depth into the St.Albert area that really helped us feel confident with our new home. I highly recommend Craig as a realtor for your family!

Many thanks, Craig and Mary-Jean. When it came time to sell our house we carefully researched and considered all of the options available and quickly narrowed our choice down to 2% Realty. From our fist introductory meeting with Craig, the market evaluation of homes in our neighborhood, the listing and right up to the final sale of our property wevery much appreciated the quality of service that was provided. Craig is very knowledgeable, thorough, professional, friendly, prompt and hard working. We felt he had our best interests in mind throughout the selling process. We would certainly recommend 2% Realty and Craig Berke to family and friends.
-Daryl and Deborah
Professional, Available, Reasonable Commission. Craig Berke was recommended to us by a friend who had recently used his services and was very happy with the outcome. He was very professional and readily available via email, telephone and to meet face-to-face with us, as required. Mary-Jean, his assistant, provided regular status updates on our listing and was highly efficient in her communications and ensuring required documents were sent/received. From start to finish, Craig provided us with very good advice and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell a home.
-The Keller Family
Entertaining and Helpful. Craig was recommended to us by family members who used his services a couple of years ago. We were not just looking for a new home, but facing a big change, moving from an isolated farm to the 'big city'. Craig was very patient with us and showed us everything we thought we wanted to see. He put up with our waffling, and in the end, was very helpful in stating the pros and cons when we finally narrowed our search down to three different places in three different towns! Most of all, we enjoyed his company. He made the whole process of house hunting much more pleasant and entertaining than we expected, and we are very happy with our final choice. We will highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.
Stress Free. Thanks to Craig and the 2% Realty team for the awesome service provided to us during the sale of our house this past year. Craig made the experience stress free, answering our questions and guiding us through the entire sale. Our house was sold in timely fashion and at market price. We would highly recommend 2% Realty, and definitely give their service a five star rating. Thanks Craig!

True Market Value. This is a letter of recommendation for Craig Berke my real-estate agent who was able to sell my house and he also helped in the purchasing of a new home.
Let me start with the fact that I had listed with another agency prior to Craig and I didn’t get any showings at all. Craig told me the truth about the market value of my house and it sold very quickly.
Craig tells you the truth and sometimes we don’t want to hear it ,we think we are the experts and we aren’t. I sold my house for the true market value and Craig was my go to person on all areas of this house sale. He always made time for me, never made me feel like I inconvenienced him, always welcomed me and always helped me in all areas of the house sale. I was able to depend on him for advice such as what do I do next who would you recommend for jobs that needed to be done. Craig helped me when I was very busy and he helped me to get organized.
He assisted my family in making them feel heard and what they wanted and needed in a home. My kids think he is great because he helped their mom and quite honestly surpassed all our expectations. I would recommend him in a heartbeat he is wonderful and I enjoyed spending time with him wandering through houses. I had just got my knee replaced so he was my eyes for example in the basements, as I just couldn’t walk the stairs. I trusted his judgment, trust his expertise and knowledge and it was easy working with him.
This house sale was very time consuming and exhausting and Craig made it feel less stressful and for that I will always be grateful to him I not only consider him my real estate agent but my friend.
I also really like 2% reality as I saved money and they paid my first months mortgage as it was a special put on by 2% for the month that I sold.
I have recommended Craig to lots of my friends and will continue to do so!
Craig was extremely helpful in helping us to sell our home and upgrade into a newer one. He was knowledgeable about what people look for when we were selling our home and with a few inexpensive upgrades it didn't take long to sell. When looking for houses Craig took what we were looking for and showed us a variety of homes that would suit our needs. There was never any pressure to sell or buy and all of our dealings with Craig were both professional and friendly. Thanks Craig
-Drake & Yoke
Craig, thank you for assistance with the quick sale of our home!
Your commitment to professional service and knowledge of the local real estate market and condo sales requirements, helped us position and price our condo for a seamless sale to a target market of +45 year old customers. It was a pleasure to work with you and we definitely would recommend you and your office to future customers when the opportunity arises.
-Kerry & Diane MacDonald
Thanks MJ! You and Craig's hospitality and assistance was greatly appreciated. We will certainly recommend you to anyone who asks, and you can expect us to contact you in a few years when it comes time to sell again (not too soon, I hope!)
I procured the services of Craig Berke at 2% Realty to sell my house in St. Albert. As we had already moved to BC there were some challenges. However, Craig's tenacity coupled with his professionalism got the job done for me. The final deal was not an easy one as we had some picky buyers, but I always felt that I could count on Craig to give me good advice and talk me down when necessary. Thanks Craig, for making it as painless as possible.
Organized, friendly, Motivated
We highly recommend Craig as a realtor. He helped us with the sale of our old home and purchase of our new one. He is extremely professional, personable and incredibly knowledgeable. He is great to communicate with and always makes himself available to you. He makes sure he is very well informed with respect to the areas in which he deals. He provided us with valuable insight when we were searching for our new home and as a result we were able to find the perfect one. Organized, friendly and motivated – he is a pleasure to work with!
-Denise and Mike
Thanks Craig for all your help in selling of my home of 12 years. It has been an emotional ride for me and I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life. You have given me very valuable advice and guidance that I would have been lost without. It has been a pleasure to work with you and I have already been asked by neighbours about your company. Thanks again. Cheers
Help in Selling and Buying
I just wanted to say thanks for helping me make the transition from bungalow to townhouse owner. I had put off making a move thinking it would be too difficult to find what I wanted, something I liked just as much, but with less maintenance to worry about.
When I decided, finally, to sell my bungalow I started looking around to see what was out there and what the costs of selling would be. I found it hard to swallow the cost of 'regular' realtor fees, so when I met you at an open house, found out about 2% Realty's fee structure, and found your manner to be very congenial, I decided to try listing with you.
And I wasn't disappointed. You had suggestions for staging the house, and spent hours showing my bungalow to prospective buyers until the 'right' offer came in and we sealed the deal.
At the same time you helped me scour the city for my new 'perfect' abode. You were a good listener, hearing my vision of what would make me happy, and patient in helping me look at many, many places, revisiting some several times, and didn't rush me through them, allowing me time to try and envision myself in each one.
When I finally found my 'perfect' place, you were helpful in explaining all the technicalities, and making all the negotiations and paperwork come together, walking me through each step so I didn't have to worry about any of that aspect of selling or buying. Your 'welcome-to-your-new-home' gifts were also very thoughtful!
I am loving my new place, and neighbourhood, and wished I'd made this decision sooner. I appreciate all the work you put into my sale and purchase, and I've also enjoyed the little commission cheques that came from having made referrals to others, who then listed with you. I don't know of any other realty company which does that. What a great perk - I not only saved money of realty fees, by listing with you, I earned money by just telling people how happy I was with the service. Icing on an already great cake!
So thank-you, again, for helping make what could have been a highly stressful transition as seamless and as positive an event as it could be.
"Low Commission, High Value"
Before signing up with Craig & 2%, my husband and I tried to sell our house through one of the big name competitors. After a couple months went by and no offers came in, we discussed whether or not we felt their commission rate was fair for the level of service received and that's when we found Craig. We are so happy that we decided to give our business to Craig, who worked hard to get us our asking price. Craig was committed to our goal, was professional, friendly and hard working. I would highly recommend selling through Craig as the value for his services far exceeds any preconceived notions that you may have about using a low commission Realtor."
-Ali and Tom
Helpful and insightful
From our first conversation to the closing deal of our home we felt like we had a friend. Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home! You were so helpful and insightful with all the homes we looked at, we felt taken care of by our Realtor! I wouldn't have any one else help my family buy a home so you'll be hearing from us again!
Thank you again, we are so happy in our home!
-Brent & Tina
When I was searching for a new Realtor I was told about 2% Realty by a friend . Initially I assumed the service would be lower than the other companies due to lower commission rates- I couldn't have been more wrong . Craig was the most involved Realtor I've met . He was professional, easy to contact and was never put off by the hassles or having two kids in tow while searching for a new home . I will be using Craig for any future real estate needs and continue to recommend him to everyone.
-Brad & Tannis
My wife and I had an amazing experience using Craig Berke as a Realtor in the
St. Albert area.
We would recommend him in a heartbeat as we feel he is well qualified, connected
and without a doubt, an informative realtor.
He keeps his clients informed with up to date information and market comparables.
You will not be disappointed with choosing Craig Berke and 2% Realty representing
you and your house.
-Jay and Monique
"The Right Way"
"We used Craig Berke to assist in the sale of our home and we couldn't be happier with his service. We found him to be a pleasure to speak with, always available and most importantly, very thorough. It was re-assuring to see that Craig likes to do things "the right way", and this in turn gave us great confidence in his ability to sell our home. As it was, our home sold after just a few days and Craig played an important part in that.
We couldn't have asked for better service from Craig, and we would recommend him unreservedly."
-David and Keely
"Craig did an outstanding job for me on my recent condo purchase. He is very thorough and definitely does his homework. From the first moment I spoke with Craig, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He understood immediately what I was facing, and helped me every step of the way. I Want to express my gratitude to Craig for everything he did to make what is normally a stressful and difficult time very easy and smooth. Craig is a kind and caring person. I was lucky to have worked with him and would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Craig for a job well done!"
"Never sold a house before"
I really enjoyed working with Craig as I have never sold a home before and he thoroughly explained everything and kept me updated all the time. He never gave up and kept things positive when the house took a bit longer to sell than I thought it would during the slow season. I would and have recommended him to my friends!
Thanks again Craig!
Professional and Extremely Knowledgeable
"Craig Berke is professional and extremely knowledgeable. From our first meeting I felt confident in his abilities and he did not fail to deliver. He came prepared to meetings, gave excellent advice (but left the final decisions to us), was always easy to get in contact for any questions (and mine were numerous). I would use Craig again in the future and have already recommended him to a few friends. Selling a home can be stressful however Craig made the whole experience comfortable."
"We originally used Craig to sell our daughters condo. He met with our daughter and thoroughly walked her through the sale process. Her condo was sold within 2 weeks and our daughter saved over $5,500 in commissions compared to the other guys "standard" commission rates.
We were so impressed with Craig's handling of our daughter's sale we used Craig to sell our own home and purchase our new home. Craig was always available through our sale/purchase process and promptly replied to any questions we had.
Initially we were a little concerned that at the 2% commission we "would get what we paid for" but after meeting with Craig those concerns quickly went away. We ended up with great service and great savings on the commission rate. We would highly recommend Craig."
-Ken and Lori
"Our experience with you was definitely a positive one. You were able to provide us knowledgeable feedback and advice and always quick to reply to any questions or concerns we may have had. We will absolutely be recommending you to people that are in the market to either buy or sell"
-Tracy and Phil
Pleased with the Service
"We were very pleased with the service you gave us,and you were always available to take our calls and if not you always got back to us as soon as possible. You always gave us feedback on the showings which we really appreciated and the day we happened to be there when someone came to see the home without an appointment you were very eager to show them everything the home had to offer.
Thanks again and would certainly recommend you.
-Gail and Gerry
