You have one home to sell.We give you three ways to do it.

MLS Listing Services

For sellers who want increased marketing exposure


Hybrid Listing Services

For sellers who want savings and a helping hand


Full-Service Listing Services

For sellers who want all-inclusive services

If you want to sell your home, work with a respected brokerage, get treated like a person (not a commission check) and solve the problem of “out-of-touch-with-reality” real estate commissions, then the information on this site may be the most valuable you read all year. Here’s why…

We do things differently.

These days, technology has made it far easier to market a house – whether on your own or with a broker.

With that in mind, we believe that you deserve options when selling your house, not a one-size-fits-all commissioned percentage fee.

Want to market and sell your house using the MLS? Choose our Flat Fee MLS Listing Service. Perhaps you need a little more help? Choose our Hybrid Listing Service. Don’t have the time to sell your own house? We also offer Full-Service with a commission as low as 4%.

No matter which option you choose, you will get the best service for YOU, not the best deal for your agent.

The Biggest Problem Facing Home Sellers

Even though technology has made marketing a house easier, real estate brokers refuse to budge on their fees. Connecticut law requires a statement in all listing agreements notifying consumers that all real estate commissions are negotiable between the broker and client.

But there’s a catch – there’s no law that says real estate brokers have to negotiate with you.

When you couple this with the fact that technology now allows buyers to search for their own homes online, it just doesn’t seem fair that you’re the only one getting squeezed on real estate fees.

Get Acknowledged For What You Already Know

Home buying and selling has changed. Buyers have access to information that was once only available to real estate brokers. Now they can take control of their home search.

But home buyers aren’t the only ones benefiting from the growing wealth of information available online. You have access to online real estate information too. You know more about real estate than sellers did in years past. You may even know more about your local market than some real estate agents. It’s time you get acknowledge for that.

Choose What’s Best For You, Not Your Real Estate Agent

The good news is there IS something different.

Realty by Design is NOT your traditional one-size-fits-all real estate brokerage.

We are a team of experienced, highly-trained professionals who recognize that every seller is different and each deserves a unique approach to selling their home.

Whether you want to sell the home on your own while reaching the widest number of buyers possible or you want a more all-inclusive real estate solution, we can customize a commission-saving plan for you.
