Two More Glowing Testimonials

Are you still wondering how ListWell’s flat fee real estate services stack up? Here are two more glowing testimonials from our most recent clients!

“We met Tom from ListWell Realty at an open house while we were casually house hunting.  We liked his approach so much, that we listed our Mission Viejo home with him. Tom was professional and service oriented from the very start.  He got us listed quickly, and held 2 open houses the first weekend. Upon our request for help with various jobs we needed done, Tom had a team of highly respectful helpers to recommend. He was very responsive to our calls, texts, and concerns.  He was detailed, honest, and professional as the selling realtor, so we also asked him to help us with finding our next home, in Fullerton.  Again, he was encouraging, calm, detailed, responsive and professional.  Our process from listing in Mission Viejo to move in to Fullerton was about 2 months, and Tom was right on top of the closings of two concurrent escrows.  Great guy!” ~Judy & Russ

“Just want to say a very big thank you for taking care of the sale of our home.  We really appreciate and respect how well you handled this whole process and have just been impressed with everything you’ve done the whole way through.  We feel so grateful to have you as our realtor.  Thank you Tom!” ~Mia and Chuck

Flat Fee vs. Traditional Real Estate Commission

It’s a fact that commissions are common in any sales industry. If you’ve ever sold a home you know the standard compensation for real estate professionals is based on a percentage of the property’s sale value. But is that the most reasonable way for the industry to work? Might there be a better way? Let’s take a moment to look at the differences between the flat fee vs. traditional real estate commission business model.

Commissions are typically in place to attract persuasive sales people, giving them a stake in what they do for you. Car dealerships are the perfect example…they want to move as much inventory as possible so they use a commission pay structure so their sales staff will push customers to buy quickly and spend more. However, the majority of service industries offer a flat fee based on expertise, time, and material costs involved.

If you see a real estate agent as an advisor, you expect to buy or sell a home based on a fair and reasonable market rate with the agent’s help. Am I right? Consumers rely on their agents to assist them through the cumbersome process. They see their real estate agent the same way they’d see a financial advisor or counselor, providing a service for a fee based on the work performed. Keeping that in mind, our ListWell brokers have deduced that real estate commissions simply don’t make sense. More than that, we’re proud to say that our flat fee real estate model is putting more money back into the consumers’ pocket.

iStock_000001420189_SmallTo drive our point home, we feel that the price of a home is immaterial to the agent’s job. Our brokers extend an exemplary level of service that includes everything from property research and premium marketing of your home, to price and terms negotiation, inspection and closing. The primary thing that sets us apart from a traditional brokerage is that instead of forking over a huge commission payment of 5-6%, we simply charge a low flat fee. No matter if your property is a 2 bedroom condo, or an elegant estate home showcase, our service is the same and our commission is the same. We don’t think you should have to pay more just because your house is worth more.  In other words, it does not take five times as much effort to sell a $1 million home as it does a $400,000 home.

Any homeowner who is still paying a percentage of a home’s value in order to buy or sell should take a hard look at the services they are receiving and ask themselves what similar services would normally cost in any other industry. How much should an agent earn to represent a buyer or seller in today’s market then the industry is so rich with technology and information? At ListWell, we know the answer and we’d love to share our expertise with you.
