Top Listing Agent
We believe real estate commission should be fair and reasonable. Meredith charges 4.5% commission max. in three Central Oregon counties: Deschutes, Jefferson, and Crook. She receives 2% of the commission and the buyer's agent is given 2.5% commission, which is the majority rate offered in the area. If Meredith represents both the buyer and the seller (only with the seller's permission) the total commission rate is 3%. In the rare circumstance where the buyer self-represents or is represented by a non-agent (like an attorney) and there is no buyer's agent commission to pay out, the total commission charge is 2%.
We often generate over 100,000 online views per listing! We are not simply on all the tens of thousands of real estate websites, we pay extra to the top real estate sites in the country to push your listing forward, so it gets found faster and more often.
95% of buyers find their next home online. We list on thousands of websites and pay extra to feature your home on the top websites in the nation, providing more online exposure than any Oregon listing agent we've found.

Zillow 3D For Every Home
Right now Zillow has created its own proprietary 3D home walkthrough software. Unless the home has Zillow 3D on it, it won't rank as high on Zillow, meaning it won't be seen as many times or as often. We use a true 3D camera and create a professional Zillow 3D walkthrough for every home.
Fast Lead Response
We respond to every online buyer inquiry on your home in less than 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Research shows the internet attention span is 5 minutes or less. If a real estate agent takes more than 5 minutes to respond to a buyer's inquiry they have an 80% less chance to connect with that buyer. Since the vast majority of home sales are due to internet marketing, our team goes the extra mile and responds to every buyer (with a real person) in three minutes or less (24 hours a day, 365 days a year).

We provide free staging consultation to help you arrange the furnishings you already own, or if the home is vacant we provide a discount on recommended staging services.
