5. reduced sellers’ commissions. In this buyers’ market, pricing your home correctly to reflect the current market is a necessity, but if you “price your home to
sell,” shouldn’t you receive a reduced commission? Kreikemeier Real Estate believes you should and offers sellers reduced total commissions, without cutting the compensation
offered to buyers’ agents from other companies. In short, we cut only our piece of the total commission sellers are charged, which allows sellers to receive more of their sale
proceeds.

call at one of the numbers referenced above for a free, no obligation consultation.
