We are highly experienced full-time full-service Realtors® — we are always available to provide you with best-in-class service, dedicated to achieving the very best results when selling your property. Our experience & knowledge shows in everything we do: from creating your property advertisement to professional photography, marketing your listing, social media, open houses, scheduling showings, negotiations, and the hyper-targeted online advertising of your property.
You've been trained really well by Realtors® to accept & pay the 6% commission rate, but, did you ever stop and ask yourself where does that number come from? The 6% sales model was actually developed in the 1960s when there was no internet, Zillow, or eSignature. No Pay-Per-Click Marketing or even a fax machine anywhere in sight. In the 1960s the average sales price of an Ohio home was only $13,4001.
When my father Dave Barlow was starting his real estate company in 1998, in order to put photos on the MLS you had to shoot them with a camera, then drive to "Cord Camera" on Sawmill Road, and get the film developed. Then we would go back and pick it up the developed photos, take the photos to the office, scan them in, and then upload them over dial-up internet that took 20 minutes to upload just 1 photo.
Fast forward to today and the average Central Ohio home in 2020 sold for $265,8252 at 6% that is $15,949 paid in sales commissions on average!
The honest truth is: it doesn't cost almost $16,000 to sell a house in 2021.
Homes are selling faster than ever before, and for more money too, all while today's home Buyer (not the agents) control the process thanks to things like Zillow and Realtor.com. You see, we are not a "cheap" service, we think the 1% is fair. We are doing all the same things the 6% agent does so if you'd like to pay us more, we won't say no.
We've sold thousands & thousands of properties, rank inside the top 1/2 of 1% of all Realtors® nationwide, we are members of the "25 Million Club" which is the highest sales level awarded by the Columbus Board of Realtors®, as well as the State of Ohio "Pinnacle of Success" Award (the highest honor you can reach as a member of the Ohio Association of Realtors®) all because of one simple reason: what we do works. We are good at marketing and we are good at selling real estate. And now, it's being offered all for just a 1% commission in Columbus, Ohio.
