What Makes our Hassle free Listing Program So Great?


- Sell your property yourself, while it is listed, and pay no commission.
The "no commission" does not apply to a buyer exposed to property by our team or another agent while your property is listed with us.

- Cancel the listing at anytime.
Either of you or we can cancel just by calling and saying, "I want to cancel the listing." It's that simple. The cancellation becomes effective from the time you call. However, please allow two (2) business days to have the sign removed and the listing withdrawn from the MLS.

- No advance fees of any kind.
You only pay if we procure an offer that is acceptable to you.

- "No Pressure" presentation.
We will never allow you to be "pressured" by the buyer's agent. All offers will be faxed or delivered to our office, and will be presented to you by phone, so you can make your decisions privately.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

This section is designed to answer the six common questions sellers and buyers have about the "Hassle Free Listing."
However, if your question is not covered here, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Can I hold an open house?
Yes, as often as you wish! We will even provide the signs for you as well as the flyers. If a buyer, not working with an agent, comes through and wants to purchase your home you save 3% just for holding the open house yourself.

Can I have my sign as well as yours on the property?
No. The only marketing right you give up when you list with us is your "for sale" sign. Having another sign posted could potentially interfere with agent showings so we only have one sign on the property.

Can I run an ad in the paper or list my house on the Internet?
Yes. The only marketing right you give up when you list with us is the yard sign. If you find a Buyer who is not working with an agent, you have the option of calling and letting us know you've sold the property. We will then cancel the listing at no charge to you. Or, if you would like us to represent you in the sale, we will write the contract and handle all the various details to ensure a successful closing. You pay just 3%. This is the same service we provide when you are paying 6%. But in this example, we didn't find the buyer or show them the property.

Should I pick an area specialist to sell my home?
There are agents who focus primarily in one geographic area or neighborhood. But buyers come from all over the valley and country, not just that small neighborhood. So an area specialist usually really means "listing agent" in the area. Years ago the real estate business was successfully composed of lots of small "boutique" offices-where companies did specialize in a certain area or part of town. But computers and cell phones have changed that aspect of the real estate business. Now, what's important in selecting an agent are experience, track record, and marketing skills.

Can I save more money if I buy and sell through you?
Absolutely! If you are selling more than one house or plan to sell and buy another home (new or a resale) ask about the "Client Rewards Program."
