Five Sails Realty was established with a singular goal:

"To create a Canadian real estate brokerage that allows Realtors to operate independently and to service their clients however they wish."

An Open Invitation to BC Realtors

We are in business to efficiently convey our Realtor's deals and to provide each of them with the regulatory oversight that is required. Nothing else.

There have been many changes within our industry over the past few years, primarily to ensure consumer protection. These changes, when combined with social media and improved technology, have encouraged Realtors to become independent of their chosen brokerage. This desire for independence is the true inspiration that led to the opening of Five Sails Realty as a company that would not follow the old-school franchise model. Instead, we elect to sit in the background giving our Realtors the financial and marketing freedom to create their own individual brand.

We have stripped away all the unnecessary and expensive fluff associated with a typical franchise. Our business model is extremely lean. Perhaps this is best demonstrated by our small administration office that is located within The Bentall Centre in Downtown Vancouver. The associated low overheads allow us to offer the exceptional financial terms that all our Realtors enjoy.

Most importantly, all our Realtors are able to liaise directly with Steve Cartner, our Managing Broker, at any time for advice and encouragement.... and Steve's real estate experience is extensive:
  • He obtained his BC Realtor license in 1989, his Property Manager certification in 1999 and qualified as a Managing Broker in 2003;
  • During the 90's Steve was a commercial Realtor with Colliers International in Vancouver and an Associate Director in Hong Kong;
  • He has also managed sales teams on development projects in Whistler, Colorado, The Caribbean, Dubai, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Mauritius and China;
  • He has been a highly successful residential Realtor since 1997, primarily assisting buyers in Whistler and Vancouver;
  • He has served as Managing Broker of other BC brokerages prior to establishing Five Sails Realty in 2019.
