FAQ

Grape Vine Home Marketing, our partner company, is a private seller website and marketing company (operating in Ottawa for over 30 years). Grape Vine Realty is a fully licensed real estate brokerage that has been in operation since 2010. We originally operated as The Usher Group before changing our name to Grape Vine Realty. We provide for-sale-by-owner listings, called Mere Postings, through OREB’s MLS® System, for Grape Vine Home Marketing customers, however, we also offer full service real estate for both sellers and buyers.
Yes, our REALTORS® are fully licensed and very experienced. Grape Vine Realty and our agents can provide any and all real estate services that you can get from any other brokerage in Ottawa.
That’s a false perception. All brokerages have the same access to the same marketing tools to promote their listings. When one of our listings goes on Realtor.ca, it will also be published across dozens of websites automatically, including REMAX.ca, point2homes.com, kijiji.ca, royallepage.ca, comfree.com, ottawarealestate.ca, and dozens more.
Yes, you can certainly request a specific agent you’d like to work with! Just give our office a call to discuss.
If you want to be listed on the OREB’s MLS® System, you do need to offer a commission to a buyer’s agent. Our brokerage offers you the flexibility to offer a commission as low as 2%.Plus, you can also try our ​ Private Sale Flexibility​ option, which is an exclusive listing with one of our agents and having your listing marketed through grapevine.ca instead of the OREB’s MLS® System. This means you can have an agent represent you and have all that support, but market directly to private buyers!
Since real estate licenses are provincial, Grape Vine Realty is only licensed to trade in Ontario, however, you can have a listing with our partner company, Grape Vine Home Marketing. Just visit grapevine.ca for more information.
*This is the commission owing to Grape Vine Realty and does not include the commission paid to a buyer’s agent, if applicable. Inquire with office for more information.
