Am I Saving Money by Using the Sellers Realtor? | KT CONFIDENTIAL EP 179

In this episode (#179) of KT Confidential, The Real Estate Podcast, Ariel discusses if it’s financially smarter to use the seller’s realtor. Some buyers believe that going to an open house or directly calling the selling agent on a home will save them money. They believe that by dealing directly with the listing agent, they will get an advantage in negotiations and/or the listing agent will forego a portion of their compensation to make the deal work. Is it true that going straight to the listing agent will save you money?

All of that and more on KT Confidential – The Real Estate Podcast.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two, compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
