am a licensed real estate agent but use my license for the mortgage industry. We live in the Preserve and are looking for discount broker in our area. The list price is $2495000.

Help the community by answering this question:



Given you are in the morgage industry, haven't you run into a few good agents in the Pleasanton area that you could work with? If not, ask your client's who they used as their real estate professional. I would think that getting a personal referral from one of your own clients would make sense.

Sorry to hear of your situation. I monitor the performance of different models (MLS Entry Only, Discount or Limited Service brokers, and full service brokers).

You might be surprised to learn that the statistics for these different models vary a great deal. I work in Southern California, so these stats are from my MLS:
The total listings sold in the last quarter 878
Full Service Sales 866 LImited or MLS Entry Only 12 sales
Expired listings Full Service 888 or 103% MLS Entry Only or LImited - 20 or 167%
List price versus Sale Price Ratio -
Full service, sold within 30 days 99.4%, average 97.5%
MLS Entry Only or Limited - within 30 days 95.5%, average 95.6%

So with a MLS Entry Only or Limited Service broker you have a 64% greater chance that your home will never sell, if it does sell, you will sell for 3.9% LESS than if sold by Full service brokers.

If you would like to interview a Realtor in the top 10% in your area, I would be happy to arrange that for you. You can contact me via my Trulia profile.

Good luck.

Hi Mark - We are a 6-person team and have sold many houses in Pleasanton. I am surprised by your focus on a discount broker. In this market especially, what's needed is expertise and great marketing. Getting the highest yield out of your property is not always dependent on the commission paid - think time on market for example. I would encourage you to interview several Realtors if not more and make your decision based on who you feel will do the best job for you.
