Don't Fall For The Hype....87% of all real estate agents in Orange county are part-timers
Why Pay A Real Estate Agent 6% To Sell Your Home?
The commission structure in real estate hasn't changed in over 50 years! With the average home price in Orange County around $650,000 I believe a flat $5,995 listing fee is a fair price and saves you thousands in commissions. Our fee is so low there is a good chance we can add our fee to the selling price and you pay nothing to list. The standard agent commission is 6% (3% to the listing agent & 3% to the buyers agent). My listing fee is a flat $5,995. Which could save you thousands. Tech and the internet has changed everything about marketing real estate. Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com dominate searches for homes. Buyers search for homes before they even hire an agent. In the past we would have to advertise in Orange County Register and The Los Angeles Times. Then we would have to advertise in many real estate magazines and books. The time and cost of this was astronomical. We were only allowed one picture and you would actually have to visit the property to get an idea if it worked for you. Today our costs and time has been cut by 90% and we reach thousands more people within 30 minutes of the property being listed in the MLS. Buyers can watch a 3-D virtual tour from the comfort of a big screen TV. Top dollar for your home and low cost means more money in your pocket.

Buyer Rebate Program
Our buyer rebate program pays you back 1% when you use us to handle your transaction. We know most buyers find prooperties that meet their criteria on the internet. This saves us huge amounts of time for us when working with you. The 1% rebate can sometimes cover the majority of your closing costs, this can save you thousands. If you're willing to do some of the work we will pay you for it. Real estate commission rebates are not considered taxable by the IRS. A rebate will reduce the cost basis of your home (the price you paid). For example: If you purchase a $800,000 home and we rebate you 1% ($8,000) your cost basis would be $792,000. It represents an adjustment to the purchase price of the home and generally is not part of a purchaser's gross income.
How Do We Do It?
The reason we can charge less than our competitors is because we are an independent brokerage and we don't pay up to 50% of our commission to a big broker, instead we pass our savings to you. The typical agent in Orange County has to pay broker fees, franchise fees, desk fees and more. They don't have the authority to discount their commissions.
