Why Century 21 Poirier Real Estate Should Be Your Primary Choice for Listing in St. Paul and Bonnyville
When it’s time to sell your home, you want to entrust the process to a real estate team who cares about you as much as they care about your house. Century 21 is the most well-known brand in real estate, and the Poirier team takes that professionalism, dependability, and customer understanding to the next level in St. Paul and Bonnyville.
This is our home, too, so we know how special these communities are. The people who live here are part of the reason why we live here and love it, so we take great pride in serving the Lakeland region. Century 21 Poirier Real Estate has been family-owned and operated for more than 50 years. When you put our experience to work for you, you’re also taking advantage of the other qualities that set us apart as a real estate team.
Your home is all about family—and our real estate team is, too. Literally! This business was started in 1967. Darryl Poirier decided to join his father and brother in the family business rather than attending law school. Now Darryl’s sons, Darren and Tyler, are part owners, as well.
Our small group of dedicated real estate agents and assistants and their families are a lot like yours. We’ve bought and sold our own homes here, we’re raising families here. We truly love this area along with all our neighbours who call it home. Going to work every day with people we love makes our jobs even more enjoyable, and knowing we get to help local families similar to ours is the best part.
We don’t sell houses: we sell customer service. After all, our clients aren’t addresses, they’re people! Our primary focus is that you have a positive experience when buying or selling a home. We know there are a lot of considerations—and stress inducers!—when you’re moving, so we aim to make the process as easy as possible for you. Selling your home should be enjoyable and exciting!
You’ll be guided by our experienced team every step of the way, and we’re always available to answer your questions and address your concerns. We believe communication is the key to a successful home sale or purchase, so we encourage you to reach out to us when you need us. When we have news for you, we’ll deliver it right away. We welcome your visits to our offices, too! Stop by and see us in St. Paul or Bonnyville.
This is where we live! We want to be a part of a thriving, happy community, so we contribute to that in every way we can. We’re especially passionate about supporting our youth and helping them become the next pillars of the community. Here are just a few of the ways we give back to the place we call home:
- Mary Poirier Young Leaders Scholarship: This is an annual award of $1,000 to a high school student in St. Paul and $500 to a student in Bonnyville who have shown exemplary leadership in the community.
- Poirier Community Funding Program: We donate one percent of our commissions to a local not-for-profit in the names of the buyer and the seller. The best part is that when you sell your home with us, you get to decide where that donation goes. Choose from our list of pre-approved not-for-profits, and that percentage from our commission on the sale of your home goes to support that organization.
- Community Education Program: We’ve developed a presentation for high school students to help them learn the basics of finance and mortgages, so they have the knowledge they need to invest in their first home.
Over the years, we’ve given more than $300,000 to local organizations and, via our volunteering efforts, have helped raise more than $1,000,000. We’re looking forward to seeing these numbers increase as the years go on. A strong community is good for all of us, and we’re happy to give back to the community that has given us so much.
We are upfront about everything regarding your experience buying or selling a home. When you list with us, we’re clear about our pricing from the very beginning: six percent on the first $100,000 and three percent thereafter. As mentioned above, one percent of our commission goes back to our incredible communities—and you get to decide which organization will benefit!
Honesty seems like an obvious trait for any business owner, but we take it seriously. You’re our neighbours, and we treat you with the utmost respect. When you ask us a question, you’ll get an honest answer. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll tell you that—and then go to work to find the answer for you.
Century 21 listings get attention, because Century 21 is a well-known, high-quality name. Still, that’s not enough to sell your home. You need the team that personifies everything Century 21 stands for, and then some. You need the team that puts you first. That’s where we come in.
There’s nothing like a real estate family that is a part of the community it serves. Over the last 50 years, we’ve gotten to know St. Paul, Bonnyville, and the surrounding area very well. It’s our backyard. It’s where we work, play, and raise our families. We have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the area and the real estate market here. We stay up-to-speed on subtle market changes that can impact your buying or selling experience, and we relay that information to you in a way that’s easy to understand.
We’ve helped our clients buy and sell hundreds of homes over these five decades. Whether this is your first home or your 10th, listing it with Century 21 Poirier Real Estate is the best choice you can make. Let our family guide yours.
