Thank you to all the customers who liked our service so much that they reviewed our service. We are proud to announce that we received our 100th review on Google. We have actually been reviewed by well over 100 flat fee home sellers previously, but we lost over 40 reviews when Yahoo decided to sell it review section to a paid review vendor. Unfortunately, that review vendor immediately deleted all the old yahoo reviews when they took over in 2016.
Back in our 5th year of business (2002) we became concerned because we saw lots of sketchy flat fee MLS listing websites popping up. Dissatisfied customers of those websites often called us to ask for help and wondered who they could complain to. We noticed many of those websites getting bad grades by the Better Business Bureau.
It is with a heavy heart that we are letting everyone know that our beloved team member Jesse Wallace passed away unexpectedly last week. We are very much in shock at this news, as is his family. His family has requested prayer during this difficult time.
Imagine if your boss at work asked you to sign a new employment agreement that said “Employee to receive $3,000 per month (or whatever your regular compensation is) via ABC Company, Inc. (your employer's name) but only $1.00 will be guaranteed. Company, Inc. does not guarantee payment of compensation.”
More to come. Once again, we have improved and updated our website. We have lots more content that is coming, let us know what you would like to see from us.

I chose your flat fee listing service because I did A LOT of looking on [unnamed company F] and [unnamed company O] and while [company F] looked super fancy and gave me a lot of information, I emailed them with questions and never received a reply. I called [company O] with a question and sat on hold for A LONG time before I hung up. Being accredited by the BBB was what caught my attention and then exploring your website confirmed tips that I had read on informational websites on selling home by owner and that was making sure the sign says something about working with buyer agents.
I recently came across a flat fee listing from a well known, large flat fee MLS listing brokerage. This company probably has the fanciest looking website out there, and they market their service really well. If only they could market their MLS listings as well. This listing had so many mistakes on it. Now when I say mistakes I do not mean typos or showing 2 bedrooms instead of 4. The mistakes I saw were mistakes in agent friendliness—this listing would quickly convince any buyer agent to not show the property.
