Why should you choose
Effective Agents?

Making The Deal

Better Negotiation.

Tactful and strategic negotiating skills can help reduce the amount you pay when it comes time to close. Our matching algorithm is able to improve transaction outcomes by evaluating factors such as the agent's average listing price vs. actual selling price as well as the agent's overall transaction volume. Last year when our top performing REALTORS® and real estate agents represented buyers in a transaction, on average they negotiated a $12,409 discount as compared to their performance had they been on the other side of the transaction.

Neighborhood Experts

Deep Understanding of Your Local Market.

Our agents will help you find your dream home at the best price by identifying desirable or "trending" areas, having a strong knowledge of housing inventory levels and a keen awareness of buyer sentiment. Furthermore, they'll likely have exclusive access to off-market pocket listings and, best of all, being represented by a buyer's agent is almost always free to you! Using a dedicated buyer's agent is the only way to protect your interests and properly engage with a seller's agent.

The top 5% of agents

Nearly every agent on our platform has been personally invited by one of our staff. Only the very best real estate agents make the cut.

To qualify for an invitation, the agent must be in the top of 5% in terms of overall transaction sides in their market area over the last 12 months. This elite team of expert negotiators have demonstrated market leading sale-to-list price ratios and, on average, complete 6 times as many transactions as their peers.

Success Stories

Buying a home is a complex process.
Read some of our client's success stories.

I'd been looking for a home for a few months when I found your website. Within a few minutes you texted me two agents and I ended up looking at several homes with Robert, he was awesome. He really, truly fought for me and when we found the house and made an offer he really kept pushing the process forward. In the end, we came out $50,000 under our actual budget.

Your agent, Wendy, was a godsend. When we first spoke I only had 6 weeks to be into a house because my landlord was selling the home that I was renting. Even though the market was extremely competitive we still managed to get a great deal. I will definitely use you guys again when we decide to sell.

Last August we decided it was time for an upgrade. We spent about 2 months scouring the luxury condo market in Downtown Chicago and eventually made an offer on a really incredible penthouse unit that was redesigned by famed Chicago preservationist and architect John Vinci. Our agent played a critical role in the process and we couldn't have done it without her.

Many thanks to you guys and to Remax as well. This was easily the quickest and easiest home that I have ever bought. My budget was up to $200,000 and we actually were able to find the perfect home for just under $150,000, which was just wonderful. My husband and I are retiring and we are very comfortable in this new home, thank you to all involved!

Zach and his wife came down to our market and they liked what they saw. They got the lay of the land and there were are a number of great possibilities for them here. They were able to get their current home sold. On July 28th we settled and they moved in! Thanks again!

After reviewing your site my wife and I were connected with Suzanne, we spent 3 full days looking at houses but nothing really worked for us. Suzanne set up a search to notify us automatically when new houses go on the market, one day we got a call about a brand new home going under construction that was ideal. We just moved in last week so we are still settling in, but the house is great.
