No matter what a Realtor® might tell you to get you to hire them, the truth is that you, the buyer, pay all the commissions to both agents in the transaction, through your accepted offer price. To buy your dream home, for the least amount of money, it will be critical to set a purchase, negotiation, and savings strategy in place, before placing the offer.
Our new Commission FREE Real Estate Services were designed to provided buyers a flexible and low-cost alternative to the indefensible commissions charged by most Realtors®. Our new system puts buyers in control of their process- allowing them to select only those services they want our help with from our `a l carte menu of real estate activities that need to be completed to get them to the closing table.
Buyers pay only for completed activities based on a fair hourly-fee-for-service, not the unethical practice of charging outrageous commissions, based on the sales price of the home, no matter how little work was actually done.

Returning Your Savings To You!
Buyers that hire us using our Traditional Full-Service Buyer Representation, have many options for how they can receive the benefit of their savings. A few of the most common are:
receiving a check for 100% of the net commissions we receive from the listing agency- after closing
reduce the sales price by the estimated savings- thus lowering monthly payment, taxes, and closing costs
use some of the savings and put it towards closing costs (as allowed by lender) with the balance of savings returned to buyer after closing. Learn more by viewing items A7, B1-4, and D 2-3 on our FAQ's Commission FREE Services page.
