"This is the first time I've used “Everhome Realty” however second time I've used a flat fee company.
Everhome offered more services than most flat fee companies. Our agent (Elena out of South Florida) was very engaging and had a genuine interest in having a successful transaction at the right price in a timely manner. She was responsive to our concerns in a quickly changing market and provided market analysis products to justify her recommendations. She also made “”money-saving”” suggestions for the closing process. Our house went on the market right as the Fed was raising rates (Spring ’22) which caused an immediate “cooling down” of a previously red-hot seller’s market in FL. Properties that previously were being bought virtually… and practically sight unseen, were now being knit-picked over the interior paint scheme to lower the price! After my initial attempt at FSBO had not produced any offers, we signed up with Everhome then followed Elana’s recommendations and soon had an offer within the expected average days on the market for our price point…which we were happy to get our (adjusted) listing pricing!!. The Buyer’s Agent (BA) was very un-involved and non-communicative once the purchase contract was signed (later learned buyers were from W. Palm Beach but referred to BA in Miami-Dade.) In our opinion she embodied most traits that reflect poorly with realtors as a profession…make unfulfilling promises then do as little as possible yet expect a handsome payday at closing. Elena doggedly sent repeated emails and texts for the BA, title company and Lenders to keep US in the loop of the closing process, also let them know we are available to provide any info needed to expedite the process. Elena did not receive a single call from BA until day of closing (which was postponed due to Ian)…NOW they were wanting info to assist the new owner with the property!! Overall, did Everhome save me money?…Yes; Did they provide the services claimed?…Yes; Would I use them again and/or recommend them?…Yes; Will I ever use a “full service” listing agent again?…Definitely Not!!”
