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.

Here’s What We Offer

Since this isn’t the way traditional agents work, you may be wondering what to expect..
Quite a lot, actually.  Here’s what’s included whether you list for 1% or $1,000:

Home Valuation

We will visit your property to estimate the Fair Market Value by analyzing your property's condition & examining recent nearby sales.

Property Analysis

We will recommend repairs & improvements to sell your property for the highest price. We'll also connect you with professionals to help prepare your home for the market including painters, handymen & home stagers.

MLS Listing

Your home will be listed on the Triangle Multiple Listing Service so it is available for all Realtors to see. We pride ourselves in providing thorough & accurate information so we're ready for offers anytime!

Marketing

Your home will be featured on 400+ websites including Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia & more. We'll also showcase your home on our Facebook page with over 700 fans.

Professional Photography

Photos are the most important marketing tool we have. We want only the best so we'll have our professional photographer take up to 25 photos to highlight your home's best features.

Lockbox & Sign

We'll provide a lockbox for your front door so agents can easily show your home to prospective buyers as well as a professionally designed yard sign to show your home is for sale.

Accurate Information

We work hard to ensure that all information about your home is accurate and readily available to buyers so that when they are ready to make an offer on your home, there's nothing holding them back.

Document Preparation

We will fill out all appropriate NC Real Estate Commission approved forms & make certain the correct addenda are included so that you're completely protected.

Full Representation

We represent you from start to finish so you don't have to ever speak to the other party or Realtors directly. We negotiate offers & repairs on your behalf & help coordinate closing details.

Closing Coordination

We'll help set up the closing date and time for you, as well as help you remember all the details like turning off utilities & forwarding your mail.

Feedback

You'll receive feedback from agents who show your home with what their buyers thought. We'll also review our marketing strategy every 30 days in case any adjustments are needed.

Teamwork

We have a dedicated team of people who are there to guide you through each step of the transaction. While we all have different roles, our number one priority is you.

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.

I heard about Smart Choice Realty through a good friend of mine, who spoke highly of one of the realtors, Claudia Roberts. When I met with her I had no idea that I could get from my home, what she said, or not even near it. Ms. Roberts always answered my calls, she was always professional and when I did get an offer, I would tell her my thoughts and with her professionalism she would tell me hers. Needless to say I am 100% satisfied with all of my choices we made together. I would definitely use them again if I need to.

My family has used this real estate broker for several transactions including listing and buying. We had many good experiences on both sides of the table including expediency and flexibility. I only took off the one star because our first real estate transaction was near the start of the business and there were some miscommunications that made the experience more stressful BUT I also realize that the onus of selling and buying a home belongs primarily to the home owner/buyer and no one else. Realtors and financial institutions are merely tools that have had to shoulder more accountability since consumers have forgotten or simply are ignorant of their homework and do not realize that they have full agency in the process.

Last spring it became I realized that I should retire earlier than I planned. We decided to sell our home and move from Raleigh. I have known Samara Pressley for years and she was the first person I contacted. She came to my home and made recommendations how to get it ready to sell. We had lived in our home 32 years and welcomed her advice. Our home sold the second day on the market. Before closing, we were hit with several obstacles we had not anticipated. Samara stood by us and practically held our hands through the process. Samara is professional, communicative, thorough and will not back down to unreasonable expectations from the sellers. I would not recommend anybody other than Smart Choice Realty!

Smart Choice Reality was recommended to us by a friend and it was the best recommendation we've ever received! Samara and team sold my home in under a week and we were lucky enough to get above asking price due to multiple offers. I feel they understand the market well enough to advise their sellers on upgrades, pricing and expectation. 100% honest and so easy to work with. Communication was never a problem, always there for you when you have questions and very forthcoming with guidance throughout the selling and buying process. Our buying experience was equally impressive and they found my family the perfect house, in the perfect place and we were able to get it for below list price! Again, everyone is super knowledgeable and helpful. Smart Choice will take care of you, highly recommended!
