Whether BUYING or SELLING, Buy Me Realty® is your local voice to a Global Real Estate Market. Founded in the fall of 1999, we began operations as a full service Real Estate brokerage serving primarily Southeastern Michigan. Having practiced real estate since 1993, we had the opportunity to experience first hand the traditional real estate model and practices which have dominated the real estate industry for more than 20 years. We realized early on that the Internet would play a pivotal role in reshaping the real estate transaction by providing transparency to the consumer, exposing a process and data base (MLS) once held exclusively by the professional real estate community. So we chose to create what we consider is the ideal real estate business model which was designed to embrace both sides of the consumer community and serve as a platform through which we bring Buyers and Sellers together. Our marketing program reinforces this concept by reaching out to both the consumer and real estate communities and allocates seller paid compensation (commission) based on procuring cause. Our Sellers enjoy full real estate services and cutting edge marketing for less than what the “traditional” real estate brokers charge, considerably less (see below). We are not a discount broker nor do we un-bundle (menu type pricing, pay per service) our services.
Over the years, we have held memberships in as many as 4 different Multiple Listing Services (MLS) at any given time as it was necessary to effectively market our seller’s properties to neighboring real estate professionals. Now, one MLS has emerged as Michigan’s premiere REALTOR® listing database. Realcomp II Ltd. is Michigan’s largest REALTOR®-owned Multiple Listing Service. Since 1994, it has grown to serve more than 11,000 valued broker, agent and appraiser members in over 2,100 offices in Southeastern Michigan.
