We believe in complete transparency in all real estate related matters.
With that in mind I have decided to publish a detailed list of all of the services that we provide to our seller-clients when you choose to list your home for sale with the 777 Home Team.
Every one of the items on this list is included in our Saver Plan, the 1% / $2995 plan. Additional items are included when signing up for our other, more expensive plans. But we will never try to upsell you.
And remember also, our 1% / $2995 plan does not include the 2.8% amount paid to the agent who represents the buyer. Every real estate company will also require a co-op fee to be paid to the agent bringing the buyer. Even those 1 and 2% companies conveniently neglect to mention that their fee does not include the additional fee that must be paid to the buyer’s agent. That fee needs to be paid. Buyer’s agents tend to avoid working for free. I simply choose to disclose it in advance.
Another full disclosure is that the $2995 option is only applicable to a selling price under $300,000. $300,000 and above will use the 1%.
If by chance there is no agent representing the buyer, then we will need to discuss the best method of representing your best interests.

This list of services is specific to Jerry Downer and the 777 Home Team at Brokers Guild Real Estate. Other agents and agent teams have their own fee and services schedules.
This is far more than any of the so-called discount brokerages provide, and it even exceeds the services provided by other Full Service agents.

Our Listing Agreements Can Be Cancelled
The hesitation of many sellers about entering into a long term listing agreement is justified. Many agents try to lock sellers into a one year or longer agreement. This only benefits the agent, not the seller.
Our listing agreements are written as a six month contract with the provision that it may be cancelled by either party. That is, you can fire us.
So, is it time to get started?
Start by getting regular updates about your home’s market value.
Whether you want to sell now or in 3 months, it just takes a phone call or text to 720-277-9001 or an email to email@example.com. Or fill out the form below
