Real Savings, Real Stories: How Our Clients Saved Big on Commissions

A significant shift is reshaping the real estate market, directly addressing homeowners’ concerns and desires for a more equitable selling process. This movement, inspired by a growing dissatisfaction with traditional models that often compromise sellers’ profits, calls for a new era. At the heart of this revolution is the rise of flat fee MLS realtors, a response to calls for a system that respects and amplifies the rights of individual sellers. This approach not only challenges outdated practices but also offers hope for a fairer future, one that stresses the importance of every homeowner’s ability to navigate their selling journey with confidence and support. 

In the modern real estate landscape, innovative solutions are providing homeowners with new pathways to sell their properties, empowering them to retain greater control and financial benefit from their sales. This shift towards more equitable selling options places a spotlight on services that offer transparency, efficiency, and significant cost savings, challenging traditional methods and setting a new standard for homeowner empowerment. This shift towards more rewarding selling experiences sets the stage for the transformative stories of our clients, showcasing our impactful approach.

“Yes, you will save money by listing with Ohio Broker Direct. But you won’t be sacrificing one bit of industry knowledge or professionalism. Joan is extremely conscientious, thorough, and a pleasure to do business with. This has been, by far, the best experience I have had in selling a home.”

Here at Ohio Broker Direct our model has been proven itself to work time and time again through stories like a couple in Concord Township…


“After having a full service realtor for a year with no results and no communication, we listed our house with Ohio Broker Direct. It was the best decision we have ever made. Our emails were responded to quickly and professionally. We saved over $10,000 and had a more professional realtor.”

                                                                                                                            – Mike & Peggy A.

At Ohio Broker Direct we have crafted a reputation known for our readiness to address any inquiries, coupled with a deep understanding of the Ohio real estate market, ensuring clients receive the support and knowledge necessary for a successful selling experience. Take this couple from Avon Lake for instance…


“We have sold many of our renovations using Ohio Broker Direct and HIGHLY recommend them. Joan is very knowledgeable and always willing to answer any questions we may have and does so in a very timely manner. The listing process is so easy and we have saved well over $75,000 in realtor commissions! Listing a property on the MLS generates so many more calls and showings than just being on the ‘do it yourself’ sites and sells your house faster and usually for more money. We recommended Ohio Broker Direct to several people and will definitely continue to use their services in the future.” 

                                                                                                                           – Steve & Connie D.
