Flat-Rate MLS Listing and Brokerage Services
In my dual role as a Texas Real Estate Broker and a New Home Builder, I understand that each new home is unique, and the sales and marketing approach should be equally distinctive.
We provide builders with flexibility!
Whether you have your own sales team or prefer to handle the sale independently, our services cater to your needs with a budget-friendly, fixed-rate MLS listing fee.
Alternatively, for a comprehensive and all-inclusive solution, we offer an extensive marketing package that encompasses professional photography, expert staging, international exposure, high-end marketing materials, and dedicated on-site open and private showing services.
We're here to help you optimize your savings on commissions while ensuring even those properties that require a little extra attention find their perfect buyers.
