Here’s Why Realty by Design Is Your Best Choice
Our Full-Service Listing Plan not only provides expert marketing including professional photography, aerial images, floor plans and more, but it also saves you thousands of dollars at a time when you may need it most.
Imagine all the things you could do if you saved a few thousand in commission. What would it feel like to have an extra $5,000 to furnish your next place? Or add $10,000 to your savings account, or $15,000 to take a much-needed vacation?
At Realty by Design, you save money on real estate commission without sacrificing an enjoyable client experience and modern-day marketing expectations.
2.5% Buyer’s Agent Commission is Included
Traditional real estate agents have to say something to justify their high commission.
One of the untruths they will tell you is that if you pay your listing a broker a lower commission, your listing broker will offer a lower commission to the buyer’s agent.
At Realty by Design, this is simply not true! We recognize that buyer’s agents work hard and therefore, we include a 2.5% Buyer’s Agent Commission as part of our Full-Service Listing Plan. This is spelled out in the listing paperwork. The amount being offered to the buyer’s agent is in writing.

Agents work as independent contractors for their brokerages. This means that there is no standard marketing plan. What an agent does to market your home is up to them.
This is why it’s important to compare agents and compare marketing plans. We are so confident in our marketing plan, that we put it in writing. Check out below all the tools we use to market your home.
We invite you to compare our extraordinary real estate marketing services and surprisingly fair cost to any large or small brokerage, and you be the judge.
