Are Discount Commissions a Good Value?

Updated August 16, 2019

When a client asks about a discounted commission, it tells us they are focusing on their bottom line.

Whether we’re at the stage of pricing, listing, negotiating or closing on a property, our focus is 100% on our client’s bottom line. There is truth to the saying… get what you pay for!

We have confidence in the measurable value we deliver to our clients every day. Our client reviews, sales results, and reputation in the community demonstrate we get our clients the bottom line they desire.

How we are different and how does that difference give you better results?

Path & Post doesn’t hire every warm body who walks in the door which is the approach for the majority of local brokerages. Our business strategy is to rise above the norm of the one size fits all real estate approach, to deliver a custom experience based on each client’s unique situation.

Whether your initial research is for a Discount Real Estate Broker or a Full Service Broker, our goal is to deliver the bottom line results that are optimal for you. And we do that by having a unique business model with only experienced agents.

We don’t have to advertise on the radio or TV or billboards because our past clients refer us to their friends and family, so our business is heavily based on our reputation and referrals.

We always recommend before hiring any professional, you Google Them. This quick article and video gives the best tips to quickly analyze any agent or team:

No Conflict of Interests

When an agent represents the buyer AND seller in the same transaction, GA Law calls that Dual Agency. Most brokerages in our market DO allow their agents to put clients in a precarious dual agency situation. Path & Post does not subject our clients to the inherent risk of dual agency because it benefits the agent at the expense of the client. Simply put, our clients come first. Our company policy is we do not practice dual agency. Within our company, when we sell our own brokerage’s listing to a client, the buyer and seller are individually  represented by their own designated agent at Path & Post, so their best interests are fully represented.

Proven Results from Experience

Our experience with contract negotiations on 300-400 transactions per year means we understand the market and know how to make a sale work to our client’s advantage. More than half of all real estate agents are part time. The average local agent sells 3.7 properties per year. Path & Post agents average 15+ transactions per year. We have the highest producing agents of any team or brokerage in the area.

It takes years of solid experience to develop strong negotiation skills. We have those negotiation tactics fine tuned to best guide our clients. Our sales results speak for themselves. Our reviews from clients on Google, Facebook, Realtor, and Zillow share what our past clients say about working with us.

Strategies to Limit Client Risk

We use strategies in contract preparation, initial and repair negotiations, and appraisal management to limit our clients’ risks and maximize their value. We do a level of research at each stage of the transaction that is not common for our industry, in order to better represent our clients’ best interests.

The Bottom Line

Who you choose to be on your side in such a significant transaction will have a far greater impact on your bottom line, as well as on your experience.
