List Your Home for $1,000

Either way, you save thousands with us.

What We Do

We are one of the top flat fee, discount real estate brokers in Raleigh.  With over 12 years of experience selling homes in the Triangle, we offer home sellers an alternative to traditional real estate and save them money on the sale of their homes.  We do this by either listing your home for $1,000 (if you’re buying another home with us) or by listing for 1% (if you aren’t purchasing another home).  With either option, you save thousands without sacrificing service.

We were surprised with the care that Smart choice offered us from the start to finish. Staging property to having showings and follow up to the sale of your property. Listen to Samara for she will guide you and she will give you happy results. Yes, you will pocket some extra money.

Samara and Angie give their customers great service for a fair price. They perform as well as any other full service (and full commission) realtor I've ever worked with over 30 years of buying and selling homes. I highly recommend their agency.

Samara and Mark were great. It was like they had known us for years. They did a great job managing the sell of the house. I would use them again in a heart beat and they saved us a lot of money.
Samara & Smart Choice Realty did a great job for us! We got 25 offers in three days, sold for 14% above asking price, and saved thousands on commissions! Thanks Samara!

Samara and her team were wonderful to work with. They made the process easy and fast. My house sold for $50,000 over asking price. Plus I had 16 offers in only three days. The team responses to questions I may have had were answered promptly. Plus they take less commission than any other real estate company; thus more money in your pocket. I highly recommend smart choice realty for anyone in the market to buy or sell.

Our experience with Smart Choice Realty was excellent.. They were very thorough in evaluating and recommending the best price to list our house that would generate the most interest.The end result was the house sold in 3 days with over 50 showings and 6 offers. The offer we accepted was $70,000 over asking.Samara and the team were great to work with and provided excellent support through closing. They were extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive. There flat fee approach saved us a considerable amount of money while still providing us full service.

I highly recommend Smart Choice Realty and couldn't be happier with their services. From professional advice to photography to scheduling showings to paperwork; everything has been excellent. They save you money on commission fees while providing great service too, so I think they're the best in the area!

I found Smart Choice Realty after exploring options for a flat fee realtor in the Raleigh area. I was impressed with the reviews as well as their high quality photos from previous listings. After our initial meeting with Samara, we found her to be incredibly professional and knowledgeable. We felt like they offered just the right amount of support for the sale of our home, as we didn’t need or want extensive help with staging or extreme marketing. The process of listing our home went smoothly and Samara was awesome during the process of dealing with offers. On the buying side, we loved working with Nicole. In this crazy market, Nicole was right by our side every step of the way. We looked at homes in several different areas, met with custom builders and eventually ended up finding the perfect spec home and getting it for a price we were very happy with! Nicole is incredibly professional, responsive in her communication and excellent in her dealings with other realtors. We initially thought that the flat fee model sounded too good to be true, but it is just a different way of structuring their business revenue, and it is highly beneficial to the seller! Definitely give Smart Choice Realty a call - you won’t regret it! I don’t usually write reviews, but we were so pleased, we want to let everyone know!!
