Johnson Realty of St. Louis vs. Traditional 6% Full Commission Real Estate Companies

  • Johnson brings the full-service representation, advice and negotiating skills of a traditional real estate company.
  • Since we work in large volume, our agents are usually much more experienced than the ones we go up against, and that can mean savings, and getting what you want.
  • Plus, Johnson will save you money while in many cases actually providing better marketing, and much more professional and experienced representation.

Johnson Realty of St. Louis vs. Assisted Selling

  • Assisted selling offers flat fees lower than most traditional real estate companies-but not as low as Johnson Realty. Plus, you don't always have the option to set your own buyer's agent commission.
  • With Johnson's experienced, local team, feel confident you have the best representation. Assisted selling doesn't always offer this same expertise.
  • Franchised companies, so they don't have the flexibility of an independent company like Johnson Realty to work with their clients. We are our own bosses, so we have the ability to do what ever we need to make sure our clients are happy.

Johnson Realty of St. Louis vs. Flat Fee Discount Listing Services

  • Sure, flat fee companies bring low costs (sometimes), but what about the services?
  • We never compromise on service, and we offer more aggressive and experienced negotiating and representation than many flat fee companies. The local Johnson Realty team is with you throughout the process.
  • Johnson Realty also allows you to set your own buyer's agent commission.
  • Unlike Johnson Realty, many flat fee companies won't show your home, or even come to your home to list.

Johnson Realty of St. Louis vs. FSBO

  • You stay in control with For Sale By Owner-and save money.
  • But we let you keep that control and decide how much you want us to be involved-you pay low cost fee for service, not for work we don't do or you don't need.
  • So with Johnson, you still save money.and get St. Louis MLS listing and expert representation.
