Creekview began from a single idea back in the late 1990’s. That idea, which seems to be a no-brainer, is actually quite revolutionary. You see, John Prell had a vision. He wanted to make real estate affordable. He wanted to help families by letting them keep more of the money from the sale of their homes.
By 2002, the doors were open. Since then, we have grown at a steady pace, and have fully licensed agents that cover the entire state of Texas. At Creekview, we honestly believe that individual actions matter.
That is why we are committed to customer service. For us, it is not just a catch-phrase. It is something we take seriously. And we back up our words with real action.
Call us or shoot us an email. We are available 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are always happy to talk to you about anything from listing a property on your local MLS to the negotiation of a closing.
So, How do Flat Fee MLS Listings Work?
First, let’s explain how traditional listings work. Usually, if you list your property with a traditional realtor, you sign a contract and agree to hand over 3% of the sale price of your home. If the buyer has an agent, which they usually do, they also charge a fee.
The combined 6% fee is almost always absorbed by the seller. For example, that works out to a whopping $15,000 for a house priced at $250,000. Stop and think about that number. For the longest time, people had to just suck it up and deal with it.
Then, the internet changed the world. Practically every industry has been transformed in some way, and real estate is no different. Listing your property is now done with the click of a button. Contracts, documents, even negotiations, all told, represent hours of work instead of days or even weeks.
Why Sellers Love Us
Our team of licensed agents provide an identical service to that of a traditional 6% real estate agent, except we charge a flat fee of $1195. (A self-negotiation option is available for $495)
It makes you wonder: why pay 6% to sell your property when we provide the exact same service for $1195? (Self-negotiation option available for $495). We get this question a lot, and the honest answer is it’s because people haven’t heard about us yet! Many of our clients wonder why they ever used 6% realtors in the past, when they actually received better service from us. Our model gives you the same access and exposure, and the same — if not better — level of service.
The difference is, we help you save thousands of dollars.
Why Buyers Love Us
When Creekview represents you on your next property purchase, we give you two-thirds of our buyer’s agent commission back as a cash rebate. (This works with land, condos, new home builds, etc.)
