Northern Kentucky Real Estate Agent, Turned Principle Broker, Cristen Appleton Launches Kentucky Full Service Flat Fee MLS Listing Service Under New Brokerage, Real Estate Victory, Inc. New Full Service MLS Listing Service To Help Sellers List and Market Their Property for only $895 Flat Fee Instead Of 6% Commission. SellWithMeFlatFee.com
Independence, KY January 13, 2016 - Lifelong Northern Kentucky resident, Cristen Appleton has been a licensed real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty Services for the past 2 years. In that time, Appleton has been awarded multiple awards from what was a very supportive brokerage that taught her a great deal as a new agent. While she flourished as a buyers agent, Cristens listing business wasn’t blowing any doors off.
“I never felt comfortable pushing people for 6% commission to list their homes and didn’t have much control over what I was charging clients. I may sell someone's house in 2 or 3 weeks, but I didn’t feel what I made from that was worth it to my clients, so I didn’t go after listings very often. The money was nice, but even though it’s common practice, I didn't feel right about it so I didn’t push for listings.” explains Cristen
“It’s not like it was 10 years ago when people called an agent to sell their property to pump money into marketing everywhere or use their sphere of influence to move property. Selling a property is about listing it on the MLS which takes a few minutes and generating interest in the property through online marketing. 87% of home buyers start online today.” Appleton further explains.
Appletons new service is SellWithMeFlatFee.com and is a full service MLS listing service by Real Estate Victory, Inc. This new flat fee service will provide all of the same efforts expected from typical listing agent, but without the hefty 6% commission. Listing your property on the MLS, generating exposure on the major and minor real estate websites online, showing schedules and contract negotiations all for $895 per listing.
The difference between SellWithMeFlatFee.com being a full service broker and other Flat Fee MLS Listing Brokers is that other brokers will charge a small listing fee to obtain your business knowing that you will need a variety of other services through out the sales process. Then, they nickel and dime you with more and more fees for those services. Who wants to negotiate with their listing agent every time something comes up when that effort should be spent selling the property for the most possible?
Real Estate Victory, Inc is Appleton’s Brokerage from which she will represent buyers as usual.
With the launch of Appletons new brokerage the first week of 2016 and the launch of SellWithMeFlatFee’s first website (of the planned 25 sites that will span the web), Appleton plans to set a new standard for what people selling property should expect from a flat fee listing broker while saying goodbye to the old school ways of doing business.
