More than your average brokerage

Independence means standing for something different, purposefully. That’s how we started Dexter, and it’s how we’ll boldly continue.

Our History is one of daring to be different. For nearly four decades we’ve built a brokerage in defiance of industry norms. Not because we sought to be rebellious, rather, because we felt the difference was essential for the benefit of our agents and their clients.

When now President David Peerless and a select group of forward-thinking agents purchased Dexter in 1998, they did so knowing it was the start of something much larger. From our earliest days as a boutique brokerage, Dexter Realty earned a reputation for charting its own real estate course. Having grown to be one of the largest independent brokerages in the Lower Mainland, we never lost sight of the importance of a personalized real estate experience.

In an industry dominated by massive national franchises, Dexter’s edge is our personal, hands-on support with the complementary business model to ensure its viability. Many times over the past decades, competitors have informed us that ‘you can’t run a brokerage on a split commission model any more’. That we shouldn’t ‘invest so much time in training your agents’. Or support those agents’ marketing efforts.

But Dexter can. And does. Brilliantly.

Meet our Staff

Our agents are supported by a strong support team at both our offices.

At Dexter, we make a positive impact in the lives of our agents and broader Lower Mainland community.

A brokerage needs to be more than the sum of its parts. Over the course of Dexter’s long history, our managing brokers have been committed to knowing—and supporting—one major initiative close to each of our 170+ agents’ hearts. And as a brokerage, we’re invested in creating positive change.

Dexter President David Peerless will be the first to speak about how no one at Dexter has remained untouched by cancer—through colleagues, loved ones, peers. That’s why we’re active participants in initiatives such as the annual Ride to Conquer Cancer, the Ride to Survive and Foundation 33. Our charitable causes are also far broader. For decades, we’ve been major philanthropic contributors to the arts in Vancouver. We’ve been instrumental in supporting global initiatives like Around the World in 80 Anthems.

As a company, we received the REALTORS CARE® Award in 2012. And since then we’ve only worked harder to make a positive impact on both our industry and our communities.

Build your career with us.

Dexter is equally invested in our agents and their clients. Unlike other brokerages, we share a financial stake with our agents to ensure client success is always paired with quality.
