About Standard Real Estate

Unlike many of our competitors, we allow all our clients to make unlimited changes to their listings; do not require them to offer a commission to buyers' agents, have no back-end fees, and forward all buyer leads directly to them. We have represented many sellers since '06 that have sold their property and paid well under 2.4% to the buyer's agent, in many cases paying $0. On top of that, we have the resources many of our competitors do not - an on-staff real estate attorney, architect, a full-time receptionist, and brokers with years of experience. We are focused on customer satisfaction and getting more money into homeowners' and buyers' pockets with our famous flat fee MLS service and buyer rebate program.
