Redfin brokerage comes to Chattanooga




Redfin, a tech-powered real estate brokerage, has announced its launch into Chattanooga.

Buyers and sellers can now use Redfin’s full-service agents and website and iOS and Android app to search all homes for sale.

Redfin’s local agents are able to provide full service and charge a lower fee. Redfin will sell homes for just a 1.5% listing fee.

A homeowner selling a $300,000 home would save $4,500 working with a Redfin agent rather than a traditional agent charging a 3% listing fee. Redfin agents provide a complete home-selling service including pricing and staging advice, free professional photography, a 3D virtual tour and digital marketing.

Redfin agents are employees who are paid a salary and receive bonuses based in part on customer-satisfaction. Redfin customers are asked to review the service they received from their Redfin agents, and the reviews are published on the agents’ online profiles.

“Redfin is now in more than 90 markets in the United States and Canada and we’re thrilled to bring our local agent service and technology to these thriving new regions,” says James Marks, senior director of emerging markets at Redfin. “Buyers and sellers are looking for a modern, convenient real estate experience and our expert agents in South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky are ready to help them today.”
