"Cal is the ultimate professional in real estate. Experienced and perceptive. He is direct and honest and I really can appreciate that. He didn't waste my time with salesmanship, he offered numerous resources and produced amazing results. It's clear that Cal is very experienced in the real estate market. I did not feel rushed or pressured in anyway, yet the outcome was immediate and well beyond my expectations! Cal and his staff were always accessible and ready to answer any questions I had. This isn't the first real estate experience I've had, but it is by far the best! I have referred many of my friends to Cal, and would use him again, given the opportunity. I highly recommend Cal Chepil!"

“My wife and I listed our home with Cal this past spring. We found Cal and his team to be professional, conscientious, attentive and dedicated throughout the process of listing and selling our home as well as shopping for and purchasing our new home. Our MLS listing was very polished, with high-quality photos and a well written description. Cal hosted an open house within days of our listing going live, we had competing offers the same day, and our property sold within the first week. While shopping for our new home we were very pleased with the service. Cal got us into properties very quickly on short notice, and the viewings were never rushed. Cal offered candid, honest feedback on the properties and never seemed the least bit impatient, even after we made him walk us through about 25 different homes! We will absolutely be using Cal and his team in the future!”

"My wife and I used Cal to list our previous home as well as to purchase our new home. We found him to be incredibly prompt, thorough, and professional throughout our selling, shopping, and buying experience. Our previous home sold for above asking price with two back-up offers in place. While we were selling into a hot market, we were also buying in one, and found Cal’s dedication, and timeliness paramount in showing us new listings promptly as they came on the market. Cal went above and beyond to work around our needs/schedule, and I have been very impressed with the breadth of both residential & commercial real estate markets in the valley. When we started to look at vacation properties at Big White we turned to Cal, who actually encouraged us to reach out to two other third-party realtors who he felt were more qualified and intimately familiar with that marketplace. I have, and will continue to refer friends, family, and colleagues to Cal with complete confidence."

"I found Cal Chepil to be very honest, professional and extremely positive in all area of real estate and related matters. Cal had the knowledge to answer, and help with my concerns. His wife excelled in setting up appointments and viewings in a timely manner. If asked: I would strongly recommend Cal Chepil to everyone or anyone I know."
"I have used several Realty Firms and was never pleased with any of them until I obtained 2% Realty. My requirements are commercial and I have been looked after by 2% Realty just fine. The service of 2% Realty has been quick, efficient and expert, they handle all my properties. Use 2% Realty, you won’t be disappointed."

"Working with Cal was great! He helped me list and sell my place while I was living in a different city, all within a short timeframe. He was very informative and helpful with any questions or concerns I had. The whole transaction was smooth from start to finish. Cal also went above and beyond with helping out the tenants, he was very respectful of their time and space. I would definitely recommend and use Cal again for my next home purchase."
- Corey B.
"Cal set up a bidding war on my house. We ended up with 15 offers and sold for $126,000 over asking. It was a record for our neighborhood and well above what comparable properties were selling for. On top of that I saved thousands in commission. I also bought through Cal and the entire process exceeded my expectations. If you need a great realtor, I would highly recommend Cal."
- Jeff N
"We unsuccessfully tried selling our home 3 times before finding Cal. Cal gave us the best service by far. He found a buyer and sold our home when no one else could. Also he was about half the price of the other realtors we tried. We wouldn't hesitate to use Cal again in the future!"
- Andrew & Ilona P.
"We are thankful for Cal Chepil at 2 Percent Realty: He was honest, sensitive to our requests, tried to accommodate the visits in a timely manner. He continued to make himself available for any questions that we had after the sale of the house. We highly recommend him."
