NO! While we charge a smaller commission than most everyone in our market area, the word “discount” implies a trade-off in quality, or less than “full service.” Since we offer only the highest quality and fullest range of service, not exceeded by any of our higher-priced competitors, it is therefore more accurate to call us a top-notch traditional real estate company that just so happens to choose to charge a more reasonable fee. Simply put, there is no other real estate company that will do a better job of selling your house than us. Period. The fact that we will also save you thousands of dollars in commissions compared to our competitors is simply a bonus!
Charging a lower brokerage fee is one of the ways we choose to distinguish ourselves from the many, many other realtors working in our area. The price of homes in this area are sufficiently high that even with our lower fee structure, we are able to provide unparalleled service and the utmost commitment to our clients. In addition, we don’t have as big an overhead as the larger corporate real estate offices, and are happy to pass on this savings.
We offer a 2.5% commission to the buyer’s agent. This is the Average compensation they are accustomed to receiving, and we keep 1.5% for our work. This totals 4.0%.
No. The 2.5% commission we offer to the buyer’s agent is perfectly competitive in our market area. In fact, this 2.5% is pretty much the norm, with at least 50% of the listings shown in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) something less than 3% to the buyer’s agent. Our listings have been sold by every real estate company in the area and we have a long history of excellent relationships with our colleagues.
This is the traditional model of residential real estate brokerage practice. The seller signs an exclusive listing agreement and agrees to pay the agreed commission in exchange for all the services provided by the broker. The commission is contingent on a sale actually coming to fruition. Titan Realty offers this full service, and that is what most of our clients choose. The only difference between our full service and that of our competitors is the fact that we charge thousands of dollars less.

Ah, the most perplexing question for us, but one which probably has several answers. First, we think many sellers don’t realize that commissions are not fixed by law or by industry. The big real estate companies spend a lot of effort training their agents to focus on the service-side of their pitch and not on their fees. To support their rigid pricing structure, many agents will argue that if you pay less, you will get lesser service. It’s all a smokescreen, of course. There is no shortage of sellers unhappy with the quality of service provided by agents who charge 6%. Loyalty is another reason, as sellers will often return to the agents who helped them buy their house initially. And although we certainly cherish the same long-term relationship with our former clients, we continue to work towards having sellers take a closer look at our first-class complete service that will save them thousands of dollars.
