Have you heard of Redfin? I’m guessing that even if you haven’t ever hired a Redfin agent to buy or sell a home, you've almost certainly used our website Redfin website to look for homes. Redfin is a technology-powered, full service brokerage that is reinventing the way people buy and sell real estate. Every aspect of Redfin is incredibly efficient and we charge sellers less and/or credit buyers a portion of the Redfin commission earned. Redfin agents are paid a regular salary and small bonuses based on customer satisfaction.
I've been licensed to sell real estate since 1994 and have worked with a handful of different brokers. Starting in the middle of 2012 and while still working with an old fashioned, "traditional" broker, I also worked with Redfin as a “Partner” agent. Redfin Partner agents remain with a traditional broker but agree to work with the extra people that Redfin refers in exchange for a referral fee which is shared with the client.
After my experience as a partner agent I decided to look into Redfin's business model and it was obvious that Redfin or some similar broker not yet in existence, would be the future of real estate or at least a viable option for many. I’m thrilled I joined Redfin as one of their Northern Virginia “Listing Specialists”! Although I plan to keep and maintain my MD and DC licenses, my primary focus will be to help people list, market and sell their Fairfax County homes in Northern Virginia. We also have Buyer Specialists who exclusively help buyers with their home purchases.
Redfin is a completely transparent, zero-pressure broker. Our agents aren't just after a listing or sale like a traditional agent needs to be. The technology and user experience that the website provides, attracts a large number of people who already trust and like us. Our job is to give those people (and you), sound advice and honest information so that you're able to make better decisions. If you were to become unhappy with us you can always ask to use a different agent — Redfin or otherwise — at any time without hassle or obligation. Refreshing, huh?
