Frequently Asked Question

  • Q: How can you offer a total 4% commission to sell my home when no one else does?

    A: Valley Brokers is a network of experienced brokers that work out of their home offices. They do not rely on commission "splits", a percentage of the gross commissions typically charged by national and regional real estate companies to offset national and local advertising, office rental space and overhead associated with it.
  • Q: How do I know you aren't one of those you-get-what-you-pay-for companies?

    A: First, please review our references. Our integrity is number #1. We are a full service real estate company. We encourage you to interview other companies to compare our services. We will exceed you expectations!
  • Q: What exactly does a "full-service" real estate company mean?

    A: Full service includes the following:
    • a concise marketing plan specific to your home and location
    • an experienced agent to implement that plan
    • supporting local, not national, advertising
    • Open houses
    • contract negotiation
    • inspection oversight including termite, property, roof and national hazard inspections.
    • legal and closing coordination
  • Q: You say you have "experienced" agents. What specifically does that mean?

    A: Although all our agents have various specific credentials, nothing can compare to the number of transactions an agent has successfully completed for their clients and the number of years they have been in business. The average Valley Brokers agent has been a real estate broker for 18 years, far in excess of any other national or regional company. Most agents have closed sales exceeding $100,000,000.
  • Q: Are there any other "hidden" fees that are in excess of the 4% commission?

    A: The real estate commission is a service fee which includes all the advertising to get your home sold. Inspection fees and standard seller closing costs such as documentary transfer fees and title charges are not really hidden, but will be an additional seller expense at close of escrow.
  • Q: Can you give me an example of how I would save money?

    A: Example: Your home sells for $400,000
    A typical commission today is 5% = $20,000
    Valley Brokers 4% commission = 16,000
    You Save $4000!
