TOP 10 REASONS ATLANTA USES DUFFY

(besides the awesome value and quantifiable results)

1

For more than 15 years we’ve won by being intentionally efficient.

We have strategically marketed and proudly sold over 20,000 listings in 15 years! We give our sellers’ superior value and results. Our Clients range from first time sellers to experienced investors so do not be intimidated or fooled that you are in this alone. Our mission statement includes No Client Confusion and we mean to prove it to you.

2

Our ‘Average Days on Market’ beats the competition.

Our clients enjoy the fact that our average home stays on the market only 34 days, beating the Atlanta real estate statistics for days on market.

One of the reasons that our days are quicker is because we have a unique database of thousands of buyer clients who we know are actively wanting to buy. Playing matchmaker in our own database, we are able to match those buyers with our sellers even before they come on the market to make a quicker sale.

On the flip side of that, most real estate agents work alone, never having the power of their company’s database. The fact that we have thousands of buyers and their detailed profiles in our database is a huge advantage to our DUFFY Realty seller’s success.

Duffy Secrets, so many secrets we love to share.

The Duffy Secrets that we have gathered over the years save our Clients time AND save them more money to produce big wins for their families.

These tricks of the trade are garnered from over 29,000 sold homes that include how to price the house higher than the competition AND how to get the most out of the price by helping the buyers see the value of the property.

Neighborhoods only increase in value when someone asks a high price. We proudly help neighborhoods increase in value every single day.

You can expect the unexpected and have fun along the way when you chose to do it the Duffy way.

We are unique in the fact that we have three pricing structures to pay our commission.

  1. The Old Fashioned – We’ll absorb the investment risk, using our money to advertise and market your home, you pay no money up front, then pay us 4.5% at closing. 1.5% is used a listing commission then the remaining +3% goes to the buyer’s agent if one is present.
  2. Duffy’s Savvy Seller Listing – Pay $500 upfront, and at closing pay us a .0075% listing commission. Again, +3% if a buyer’s agent is involved. Duffy’s Savvy Seller saves you at least 2% of your sales price, potentially up to 5% if the buyer does not have an agent!
  3. Pay At Closing – Pay 6% at closing instead
    • We set the price and lower the price as agreed to in writing at the time of the listing.
    • You forfeit the option to sell the home on your own (through marketing for unrepresented buyers).
    • We list in 6-month increments. There is a $195.00 fee to withdraw the listing during that time for any reason other than the property has sold.

We provide the same persistent, consistent strategizing and marketing regardless of payment structure!
In order to attract a buyer for your home, we use the same scientific approach for selling the home, no matter which of the payment structures you choose.

Changing structure type: You will have a 2 week grace period to transition your listing to a Savvy Saver structure, this transition must also be paid for before receiving an offer.

5

We do EVERY step of the process needed to get your home sold!

It is simple – you keep your house clean, say yes to showings, and say yes to the offer terms and we’ll do the rest of the work! How easy!

Listing and Selling are two different things. We do every step of the process needed to get the home sold:

  • We price it.
  • We strategize it.
  • We list it.
  • We market it.
  • We show it.
  • We negotiate it.
  • We close it!

6

We’ve identified and execute 32 precise strategic tasks that an agent should do.

You may be thinking right now that the cost is so low compared to other options of selling with an expert so that means that you are doing our job for us. That is simply not true and we are here to say, numbers don’t lie.

We honestly could not have sold what we can prove to you that we have sold if we had left the transaction in the hands of all of our sellers. You are paying less if you choose that option because you are paying for your own marketing upfront instead of us taking more risk and paying if for you. There are 32 strategic tasks that a skilled agent does to get your home sold. We do all 32 of those tasks with precision. That is how we have successfully sold over 20,000 properties leaving our sellers with a closing and more money in their pocket.

There is no one team that has our well-oiled machine and scientific process in the U.S. and you, like our other sellers enjoy sitting back while we work the machine without you doing anything but keeping the house clean and saying yes to offer terms. This IS the same formula that other proficient, capable agent’s offer you with far less cost to you.

7

Our served clients love us and regularly rate 5 Stars.

  • We have a 5-star rating and have been named “Best of Kudzu.com in 2013, 2014, and 2015” with more than 500 written testimonials from our clients.

  • We have 120+ success stories on Yelp
  • We have more than 1,250 testimonials on our website
  • We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau for all 15 years in business.

We can’t say that every single client has been happy at the end of our relationship, it is not for a lack of trying on our part. We do everything possible to make this as painless as possible and every seller team member that you will interact with is an owner of Duffy Realty as of October 2015.

8

And from the tens of thousands of listings we have advertised and sold, we know many people who are looking to buy, including ongoing investors – so if you want your house sold right now, at a low price just to get rid of it – we know who to call.

If you need something done in your home, let us send our guys to you. They are experts in their field. DUFFY clients are DUFFY family and we have home improvement experts with turnkey solutions and helpful vendors we can share with you to lessen the pain of getting your home ready.

CLIENT LOVE

  • Being that I didn't know what to do or expect being this was my first time selling a house, Duffy made it simple and understandable. My house sold and I actually paid $3,000 less than I thought at closing which will now go toward a down payment on my new house......Thanks, Duffy Realty ...You're Awesome! And I see why you're #1.

    Evelynn Slat
  • I am extremely pleased with Duffy and the entire experience. Wonderful, well done, congratulations to you Duffy Realty. I really haven't calculated the money saved yet, but I know it was more than %6. For that I am grateful, the money will, of course, be invested. But all said Duffy will be an experience to be remembered. Well done, well done, Duffy thank you for all your hard work. Again, it was a fabulous experience.

    James Watson
  • I began working with Duffy and within a week I had a contract on our house. That ended up falling through and another contract was picked up, but all the way through, Victoria was a huge help in the process. Victoria and her team were always responding to calls/voicemails and were able to help me answer any questions and get the goals accomplished. Her knowledge was a huge asset to using this team for the sale and helped me in the long run.
