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…

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

Here’s What People Are Saying About Our Services

When our house sold, our lawyer asked twice about Lisa’s commission. She was paid a flat fee…we explained her options to him. When the checks were written, the thousands that were saved made our choice to hire Lisa a blessing. We hired 3 other companies before Lisa, and I can not tell you how much MORE she did than any of them. She is so on the right track that I expect her to grow larger than all others. Thank you Lisa.

R. King, Fairfield CT

I am very grateful and very impressed with you and the way you approach the business. We will absolutely be doing business together again; and, perhaps even more importantly, I will be a huge advocate. I will spread the word and let all my friends know about Realty by Design!!

K. Weiss, Norwalk, CT

I bought my house using [Realty By Design’s] selective services and sold my old house with a flat fee listing
I saved a lot of money and received superior service. I worked with other agents before and Lisa is really the best. If you want to use Lisa as a full service agent you’ll be satisfied as well. She is energetic next-generation agent , who is not afraid to offer new services.She is knowledgeable and very professional.
