Increase Your
Bottom Line.

Sell your home with a local, full service agent and save thousands on commissions.

So What’s the Difference Between $1,000 or 1%?

Simple.

If you purchase another home using one of our buyer specialists (that’s free representation for you), we list your current home for a $1,000 flat fee.

If you aren’t buying another home or have already purchased one, we charge 1%.

With either option, you save thousands.

Real People, Real Savings

This was my husband and I's recent review of this company's services. I wanted to make sure we posted it here as well!

"WOW!!! I cannot speak highly enough of Smart Choice Realty. Really, just a great experience in every regard. I originally sought out their services because I came across a few great reviews of Mark Davison from a few months back on social media. I am happy to report, he more than exceeded expectations. Mark Davison throughout the entire process was nothing but professional, kind, caring, hardworking, the list goes on. He really made sure my wife and I as first time home buyers were taken care of throughout every step of the process. He went above and beyond to help us understand the process and make sure we knew what we were doing. He was always ready to fight for us, and always made sure to put us first. He is a master at negotiation, and really knows how to talk to and understand people, which obviously helped us as buyers when working with other parties. We absolutely would not of found the success we did in this historic, crazy RDU market without him. I will absolutely recommend none other than Smart Choice Realty, specifically Mark Davison, for any and all home buyers in his areas of service from here on out. You will absolutely not be disappointed. A shout out to his team as well, specifically Nichole! You were great to work with and a huge help as well. Thank you all for everything, we will not take our business anywhere else!"

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!!

Extremely easy process, no difference when compared to a full commission real estate broker/agent with one BIG exception......commissions paid. There is no scam, no read the fine print, or got you in the end! Just money in your pocket, period!Would not use anyone else in my future real estate transaction.

I've worked with Smart Choice Reality twice in the past year and everything went perfect. Samara our listing agent met me each time at the property to do a walk through. She would make a few suggestions that would help get the most out of the sale and was I thankful!! My average offer was almost 10% over asking price. Plus, why spend 5-6% to list and sell a house when Smart Choice can do it at a fraction of the cost.

Smart Choice realty is the only way to sell your house. Don’t let another realtor company rob you of thousands given the tradition total 6% commission. This new business model is the way to do it. With Smart Choice’s low commission , in the end, the commission is only 3.5%.Bottom line….go with Smart Choice realty if you want to keep more of your money. Don’t lose it all in commission.
