Below is our recent interview with David Prouty, Associate Broker at Keller Williams:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to the Get a Rebate Real Estate Group at Keller Williams?
A: Get a Rebate Real Estate joins forces with Keller Williams, the largest real estate company in the world, to create the Get a Rebate Real Estate Group. Based in Minnesota our team matches buyers and sellers with local agents who will save them money when buying, building and/or selling, nationwide. Whether you are moving across town or across the country, the Get a Rebate Real Estate Group is there to help you with your real estate needs.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Get a Rebate Real Estate Group is a one-of-a-kind real estate referral network that allows buyers to get a rebate when they buy or build in any of the 40 states that allow rebates while working with a local agent in their neighborhood. This program allows sellers to save around 25% off their side of the listing fee when they sell in any of the 50 states, and again, with a local agent in their neighborhood. (These 40 states allow real estate rebates to buyers: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.)
Q: Can you tell us more about your services?
A: Buyers and Sellers go to https://getarebate.com/ scroll down on the home page and complete either the Sellers form and/or the Buyers form to be matched with a local agent where you are selling and/or buying or building. When you go through our rebate program, we match you with an agent that has already agreed to our program and will give you the benefits of the program without the buyer/seller having to do anything differently. These are full service real estate agents, most will work with Keller Williams, however, we do have agents under other brokerages in our database as well. We have created a win-win scenario since there is no cost or obligation for the buyer/seller to get these benefits, and the agents attain buyers and sellers they normally would not have worked with, at $0 marketing dollars to them. There are 40 states that allow rebates and the rebate is typically a credit toward the buyer’s closing costs. So true in your pocket savings since it lowers the amount of money you have to bring to closing. For sellers, agents lower the listing fee for instant savings to sellers. It’s kind of like having a coupon for real estate, and the savings can be substantial. If you are a real estate agent (or know of a really good one) and would like to participate in the program just complete this form, there is no cost to sign up. Lenders play an important role as well since the lender the buyer works with must allow the rebate. We may run into some that don’t, but usually it’s just a matter of educating the loan officer. If you are a lender and allow rebates and want to be introduced to local buyers, please go here and complete the form, there is no cost to be a part of the program at this time.
Q: What can we expect from the Get a Rebate Real Estate Group at Keller Williams in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: To let the masses know about our money saving real estate program and to help as many buyers and sellers to save money when buying, building and/or selling!
Q: What is the best thing about the Get a Rebate Real Estate Group at Keller Williams that people might not know about?
A: We have been offering rebates for over 20 years in Minnesota and just launched our nationwide service. It’s a true win-win since the seller and/or buyer and the agent they work with both benefit from the program. There is no cost to sellers/buyers and the agent only pays once a transaction successfully closes. Agents and loan officers request to be a part of our program, we love having them!Activate Social Media:
