Welcome ToFlat Fee Redefined

What is “Flat Fee”? and why are you “Redefined”?

“Flat Fee” in real estate is when a seller pays the listing broker of their home a discounted, flat rate commission instead of the traditional percentage-based commission. This is possible for various reasons, but advancements in technology is the biggie. There are many variations of “Flat Fee” in the real estate industry and not all are created equal! That’s where we want to clear up common misconceptions and REDEFINE what Flat Fee means to you. Flat Fee Redefined SWMO offers a superior full-service experience, all at a local level, but at a flat fee to our sellers.

What We Do:Everything you would expect from a traditional real estate company, but better! We handle everything from listing to closing including:
  • Most importantly: WE COMMUNICATE
  • Open houses (if desired by seller)
  • Thorough in-home valuation/CMA
  • Yard signs and directionals
  • Listing on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
  • Lockbox and showing feedback
  • Professional photography
  • Expert contract and inspection negotiations
  • Detailed Marketing Remarks on the MLS
  • Transaction management
What We Don't Do:We don’t charge fees upfront. We don’t just list your property then abandon you. We don’t cut corners. We don’t make excuses. We don’t disappoint!

Laura is hands down the best agent I’ve ever talked to. She doesn’t pressure or overwhelm and she’s honest and upfront. Her response time is so fast that I often felt I was taking advantage of her!

Anthony was amazing to work with. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to walk us through our first-time home purchase. Without him, we would have been completely lost and confused in this market. We now live in our beautiful home that we OWN after 5 years of renting, and our daughter has a ...

Rebecca H.

We’ve worked with quite a few Realtors in our lifetime, really good Realtors too. We recently worked with a new realtor, Michelle Drummond, to sell our mom’s home and have been fantastically blown away by the process and experience of it all with Michelle. I have found it to be typical to find R...

Anthony is a fantastic Realtor, I would highly suggest him. I told him exactly what my family was looking for in a house and he immediately started searching. He was patient with me in finding the perfect place and never stopped searching. I can now proudly say we own our dream home in Springfield a...

Laura has “SOLD” our family on Springfield! We first met Laura a few years ago when she was helping one of our daughters and her husband find and purchase their first home. I was impressed then with her patience, dedication and knowledge. A year later she helped another of our daughters and her ...

Michelle is what you're looking for in a Realtor, a person of high character and integrity. She's very responsive and attentive to your needs as she works hard to find the right match for you as buyer or seller. The flat-fee model is also excellent. Personally, she helped my mom through the process ...

Clay D.

I cannot express how much I respect and appreciate Laura as a Realtor and a person. To say she went out of her way and above and beyond doesn't begin to convey how dedicated she is to her clients. We met at an open house that I did not plan to attend. I was viewing a house in the neighborhood and th...

Michelle was so patient and kind to work with while we searched for our perfect house. She answered every question and was so knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I will recommend her to everyone!! She is the best real estate agent we have ever had.

Ashley A.

I have had many Realtors in my life and I have to say Anthony is by far the best. Thank you Anthony for finding my home with me.

Cynthia H.

Laura Duckworth is the absolute best Agent to work with! She helped us through the whole process of listing our home! She got it sold and helped us find our new home, all in a very short time! Laura was always available for questions when we needed her, not just 9 to 5! She made the whole process ...
