I'm not an agent, but I tried a flat fee service on my home in California and it was a disaster. I paid a lot more than $300-500 to sell my home (went through Help U Sell, later realized why people call it "Hope U Sell").
In other words, why pay 3% for a facilitator when the buyer's agent is doing all the work seeking out properties for their clients? I would rather pay 3 1/2% to a buyer's commission and bypass the listing agent. Any takers? The price of the home will be about $1.4 million (based on recent comps in the Canyons area of Summerlin e.g. 89144

Justin - as a successful agent you understand the value that a good real estate agent can provide. I would suggest that you adjust your expectation and list with me.
1. Call them--Calling the broker is an excellent way to see how responsive and helpful they are. If you always go to voicemail, that speaks loudly to their responsiveness,
2. Check their background-the Better Business Bureau website is an excellent place to check (put the company name in at http://www.bbb.org/us/Find-Business-Reviews/), and
3. Make sure they guarantee in writing that you will be listed in the Realtors MLS used by all the agents in the Las Vegas Metro Area.
4. Check online review websites for negative reviews or compliments from satisfied customers. Put the company name into http://www.google.com/local Any established company should have at least a handful of positive reviews.
Avoid the lowest price self listing brokers, there are some very questionable self listing websites out there, and if you research them you will find out why. My website has links to reputable brokers in 48 states as well. Good luck with your home sale.
If you have not already sold the house, it is very possible that I have a buyer and your request does not even need to be discussed. I have many listings and as a result, many buyers who I am having difficulty finding homes for as we have a shortage at this time.

I'll spare you my 2 cents worth except to say, that I gladly hired a local agent when I sold a property of mine in Utah...and NY...and even Reno, NV (even though I have a Nevada license). Each of those agents were well worth every cent of the fees they charged.
That said, send me address and any pics you have...I might have a buyer for you before you even get it on the mls and save you the $500 to boot.
Who knows....I might need a favor in Utah some day.....
Give me a call when you get a chance and we'll work out the details....
