Realstar vs. Franchise Realtors
Realstar Realty is real estate done smarter. We are similar to your favorite discount superstore – we sell the same product (MLS, other sites) as our competitor but at a more affordable price.
Real estate marketing costs have dropped considerably. We pass those savings on to you. You get the same online presence as a traditional real estate company provides plus our award-winning customer service – for a much lower fee. That’s why more sellers choose to list their homes with Realstar.
Why choose Realstar?
Independent Brokers like Realstar offer the same MLS as the franchise brokers and often times better marketing and customer service – all for lower fees. A broker’s costs to market a home have dropped by 50%. National chains still keep a high percentage of your hard earned equity. Why? Because their bloated bottom line is more important to them than yours. Realstar passes those savings on to you.
Unlike others: Some ‘discount’ brokerages have listing agents working in the field. Once listed, you are handed off to a back office person while they go get their next listing. Once under contract you are handed off to someone else again. Most often the back office people are not licensed and have dozens of sellers they are babysitting – and you may never again hear from the agent you actually hired. If there is trouble with the sale you are left hanging. We know – we hear those stories all the time. While Realstar has incredible back office support its there to assist your agent not replace your agent. You hire a licensed agent at Realstar and that’s exactly who you get – all the way to closing.
