Real Estate Consulting


 

A different way to purchase real estate services!

We believe the time has come for the real estate industry to provide consumers with what they have wanted for years - responsible choices that offer QVT in every transaction:

Quality services
real Value and
complete Transparency.

Any agent can call himself a consultant, but if you want real choices in the real estate services you receive and how you pay for them, you now have a legitimate choice.  Choose an accredited real estate consultant!  If you don't know the difference between a real estate sales person and an accredited real estate consultant, please contact us at 863-686-7080(o), 1-800-813-9180(toll free), or e-mail us at Stephanie@theagencyflorida.com.

The Menu


Served Exclusively at The Agency

If you were were to call a real estate agent to ask how much he/she would charge to sell your home, you would most likely hear a percentage, perhaps somewhere between 5 and 7 percent, based upon the sale price of your home.  Today's real estate commission model has become so ingrained into the American subconscious, that most real estate consumers and many real estate professionals have never even considered the possibility of another method of compensation.  “If it ain't broke, don't fix it”, right? 

Fortunately, The Menu provides homeowners with a unique listing alternative.  Here are THE 4 PRIMARY REASONS why The Menu is the listing model of the the future:

  1. Only one agent (the buyer's agent) receives a commission.  With the current model, two agents receive commissions.
  2. You keep most of the equity in your home.  With the current model, homeowners can walk away from a closing with less money than the real estate agents.
  3. You only pay The Agency for the services we provide, regardless of the price of your home.  With the current model, you are penalized for the value of your home.
  4. You have choices and more control.  With the current model, you either get “full service” or “no service”, nothing in between.

In the future, the real estate consultant is going to replace the real estate salesperson, and The Agency is leading the industry in providing our clients with an improved real estate model that is consumer friendly, not commission friendly.
