Post your request for rebating Realtors in your area

We’ve received a number of emails on our main site asking for referrals of rebating realtors in their region. Let us know where you’re looking and what type of rebate you’re hoping to receive and we’ll see what we can do.

Happy home hunting as we leave winter and enter into the spring buying season. Good luck and negotiate well!


Commission Rebates based on time savings

Commission rebates proportionate to time saved


I just had a discussion with a rebating real estate agent (rebating realtor) colleague of mine and we discussed a new model that he’s been implementing that has saved his clients a lot of time and money.

Firstly, the most important thing for any buyer is to pre-approved by a lender to see what loan amount they qualify for. And at that point, always respond with yes if anyone asks if you are working with a realtor. We can’t emphasize how important that is as our goal is to save time and money.

Now to the model. 

The 60-40-20

Buyers receive a 60% commission rebate if an offer is accepted within the first week

Buyers receive a 40% commission rebate if an offer is accepted within the first month

Buyers receive a 20% commission rebate regardless of time


Pretty interesting and appealing isn’t it?
