Times have changed.

Most people think you have to pay a 5% to 6% commission to sell a home.

The truth is it shouldn't cost that much. The internet has fundamentally changed the way people buy and sell homes. Modern real estate practices have significantly reduced the costs to agencies when compared to the past. We recognize this change. That's why at Alpine you can sell your home with our team of REALTORS® and pay thousands less in commissions than you might expect while still getting the full-service professional assistance of an agency.

Change is good.

Introducing Alpine's Approach

Full-service listings that save sellers thousands.

At a traditional brokerage, the total commission is typically 5%–6% of the home’s selling price, and each agent gets 2.5%–3%. The seller pays the commission for both the seller's and buyer's agents. Buyers never pay the agent commissions.

At Alpine, sellers pay the listing agent a low flat fee of $3500 or just 1%, depending on the selling price of the home, and pay the buyer's agent 2.5%. Saving you thousands. All paid at closing and only when the house sells. There are no upfront costs. Buyer's never pay the agent commissions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whats the catch?

There is no catch. You get full listing services by professional REALTORS® from consultation to close. Incorporating modern real estate strategies helps us save money, then we pass the savings on to you. It’s really that simple.

What makes your commissions modern?

We use the term modern to describe our commission structure because it is emblematic of the many contemporary approaches being successfully introduced industry-wide, especially by recent large start-ups. We designed our business model in 2017 and incorporated many of the new concepts. This implementation of present-day practices to our agency reduces our costs to operate and has a direct effect on our ability to charge less in commissions. Modern real estate agency = modern commissions.



What services do you provide?

We provide all of the same services you’d expect when working with any traditional brokerage — often referred to as “full-service” — with cost saving measures. The services include pricing your home, high-quality photography, a marketing strategy, scheduling showings, negotiating the price, and handling the paperwork for closing. We also include services that many agencies do not, like Matterport 3D home tours and online document storage.

Is your pricing accurate?

Yes. We use a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). It is the most commonly used approach by real estate professionals to price homes. The process compares recently sold homes that are similar to the subject property. Adjustments are made based on differences that either add to or decrease the value. The end calculation is used to help determine an asking price and strategy. We always share our CMA and marketing strategy with you to get your input.

Where do you market?

We primarily use online marketing. With the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) any listings we post are syndicated worldwide. This includes some of the most popular searches such as Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, homes.com, and all of the local real estate searches. In addition, we also market extensively on social media and create a customized page on our site to feature your home. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, 99% of buyers used the internet to search for homes. If you’re home matches a buyer’s criteria, they’ll find it.

Why is 2.5% paid to a buyer's agent?

In just about every real estate transaction there are different agents representing the buyer(s) and the seller(s). Even though the seller(s) is the only one that pays a commission, their agent agrees to split the commission with the buyer’s agent for their representation to the buyer. Because agents are accustomed to receiving a minimum of 2.5% (or half of 5%) our structure still includes that incentive to cooperating agencies.

When do I have to pay?

You pay the commission at closing. Typically, the commission is taken out of the proceeds from the sale. There are no upfront costs and you only pay us when we sell your home. If you decide to take your home off the market for any reason, there are no penalties or fees.

How do I get started?

You can call us directly or send us your contact information online. We’re happy to provide you with a free consultation to help determine if we’re the right fit to help you with your real estate goals. We’ll answer any questions you have and provide you with relevant information. There is no obligation. We do our best to make it a stress-free and easy experience.
