A Burlington resident was able to save almost $70,000 in commission after selling their property with New Era Real Estate, a major Ontario brokerage offering flat rate commission.

The house sold for about $3 million and the seller saved $69,100 in commission.

The seller was able to put the money they saved towards the down payment of a new home they bought with New Era, as well as a two-month trip to Europe.

“They tried selling privately before using us and had no luck. Then we came in and got it sold,” said New Era founder John Martino.

“The owners have been there for over 20 years and are excited to start a new chapter.”

New Era Real Estate, which operates in Ontario with its flagship office in Mississauga, wants to make sure sellers aren’t forking over more than they have to in commission fees.

That’s why they’re the only brokerage to charge a flat fee of $5,900 for their full service, rather than the 2.5% – 5% commission that most standard brokerages charge – affording sellers big savings as housing prices continue to skyrocket.

For sellers, those savings can be put towards something more valuable, like their new dream home or their children’s education.

In addition to the more affordable price, New Era doesn’t lock its sellers into lengthy contract commitments, and absolutely no payment is required until the property is successfully sold and the deal closes.

New Era’s full service includes the personal home owners portal, market analysis, professional photography of your property, a variety of selling strategies, home preparation, a robust marketing/advertising campaign, scheduled showings and buyer qualification, negotiation, and much more. All New Era listings go on MLS and all major real estate websites and social media platforms.

All of New Era’s agents and brokers are fully licensed with years of experience, and sellers are matched with agents that specialize in their area.

Sellers also get access to a personalized web portal that provides everything they need to know about the sale of their home: Property photos and details as it would appear on realtor.ca, paperwork signed and broken down into layman’s terms, showing feedback, showing scheduling, messaging and more, keeping sellers fully informed in real time while still having 24/7 access to their agent.

The reviews and testimonials speak for themselves, with numerous five-star Google reviews from sellers who appreciated the affordability, simplicity and convenience that New Era brought to the selling process.
