We are full service real estate brokers, except that we generally ask sellers to show their own properties or allow us to place a secure lock box on the property to make it accessible to Realtors and their clients. We handle all of the other specialized aspects of selling a home. For sellers who are uncomfortable or unable to show a property, please contact us so that we may discuss other options.

The total commission is generally 4% (includes 1.5% to us and the traditional 2.5% commission to the buyer’s broker), but in the event that we also represent the buyer, the total commission may be as low as 3%. Please ask about our minimum commission. For sellers uncomfortable with this kind of “dual agency,” all buyers can be referred to outside, traditional Realtors.
* We offer a 1% commission option to sellers who already have a buyer and do not require marketing services (minimum commission of $5,500). Please contact us for details.
