TAJ JOHNSON - REALTOR® / PARTNER - GRASSROOTS REALTY GROUP
I am the true definition of a born and raised Caribbean guy with my outgoing, stress-free and hard working personality. I moved to Grande Prairie, via Yellowknife in 1999. I studied Business at GPRC, where I originally met my friend & current Business Partner Yuri Smith. From there, I proceeded to work in a fast-paced, respected and family oriented company, Hi-tech Business Systems. In my 13 years with Hi-tech, I believed in providing top-quality solutions and always put the customer first.
Through these efforts, I was able to build a solid foundation of loyal clients that still support me today. I have always been passionate about working with people and building lasting relationships, so when the opportunity to partner in Grassroots Realty Group Ltd. arose, I couldn’t help but dive in. Its everything I have worked so hard to achieve during this working life in Grande Prairie.
Grassroots is going to allow us to take Real Estate marketing to a whole new level! Bound by no rules, limitations, corporate structures. Our advantage will be supported teamwork and limitless imaginations that allows us to serve our clients all over the Peace Country.

When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions. The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable. I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase. I am familiar with the current homes on the market, know neighborhood values well and can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search. Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
