We're bringing Real Estate into the 21st Century.

The internet has changed pretty much everything - except real estate. Today home buyers find their own homes, but sellers still pay for two real estate agents. 

cut out the middleman & Everyone wins 

The "middleman" in real estate is the seller-paid buyer's agent. Sellers and buyers should of course work with real estate agents, who are dedicated and valuable professionals. 

Market pressure = lower commissions

It's just that buyers should pay their own agents. When sellers stop offering commissions to buyers' brokers, those agents will have to negotiate their fees with their clients.

see our direct listings of homes for sale

A "direct listing" is a home for sale where the buyers are responsible for paying their own agent. Sensible, right? Yet an elusive evolution, to say the least. We've got the first site dedicated to giving these listings a marketing platform.

We have the resources you need to be successful in buying or selling a home without the middleman. From the necessary forms, to "how to" advice, to other experts to help at every stage in the process (and for sellers some great marketing materials) - we've got the goods.
