Aaron Jistel: How to Sell Homes without Paying Commission

Episode 187:

Aaron Jistel | How to Sell Homes without Paying Commission

Aaron Jistel has been an agent then broker for the last 13 years. He is currently the broker and co-founder of ListingSpark. ListingSpark is a technology based real estate brokerage founded in 2011. ListingSpark utilizes a unique subscription based payment model of $7 a day (conveniently billed monthly) rather than the traditional 3% listing commission paid at closing. They are unique in the sense that their clients only pay for the exact amount of service they want and need.

With the $7 a day rate, they offer all of the essential elements of a professional listing including professional photos, sign, supra box, showing notifications and feedback, market data as well as all contracts and documents. Their clients manage their listing through our site or from a tablet or phone. If a seller needs additional service for negotiations, they have an upgraded level of service for a small additional fee paid at closing. They are fast approaching the half a billion mark of real estate sold and have successfully sold thousands of homes throughout Texas. They are in the process of expanding in to Florida, California and several other states in the near future.
