Why do real estate agents charge a commission? 

In most cases, the one selling a home will be the one to pay a real estate agent’s commission. After all, the seller is the one using their resources to find a buyer for a home, and part of that includes paying for title insurance, loans, water, heating, and, yes, hiring a real estate agent.

In fact, one of the biggest expenses is actually hiring the professional that will help market, negotiate, and sell your home. Luckily, real estate is a commission-based business, so you don’t spend much money until the home actually closes.

Who you choose is critical. With the wrong person, you could be wasting a lot of time and they could be costing you thousands of dollars. Do they have the experience to accurately price your home? Do they have a team to help carry out the tasks associated with getting you to closing? Are they prepared to be available for you when you need them? 

With the wrong agent, you could be wasting a lot of time and they could be costing you thousands of dollars.

What is a job well-done worth to you? If you had to have surgery, would you draw a doctor's name out of a box or research doctors and look at online reviews to determine if they were the right pick for you?

Being in business for over 15 years, we have the experience of selling thousands of homes here in Denver with an average days on market of 20 days or less and a 98% sales-to-list price ratio. This year, we’ve even increased that ratio to 101%. 

Our team of eight is available at any moment during the transaction. The yard signs we put out direct people to call us on a recorded number so that we can get their information right there and then, after which one of our team members will be able to meet them at the house in 30 minutes or less.

The commission that we charge is the industry standard. We believe in giving you the best value for the lowest cost. With our team of highly specialized experts, we can help you make more money by selling your house at the highest possible price.
