(an email to the sellers friends) Randy & Tami:
I told you this morning about the quick success I had after getting on the MLS. After trying the 5-day sale method and getting a top bid of $85,000 I decided to list with Jeff Kermath, an MLS only broker out of the SE MI area (http:/kermathrealty.com/). His service is $199 - $489 to list on the MLS. I had two offers in 24 hours and accepted one this evening for $101,000. I basically did about 1 hour of work and will net probably $10,000 more and saved $3,000-$3,500 in fees.
I highly recommend going this way when you sell your house. Jeff will be there to answer your questions too.

Selling your home can be more affordable by using Kermath Realty. We were able to sell our home in September of 2012 and in a depressed market with the help of Jeff Kermath. There were no hidden fees ,one price for us the until home is sold option was are wise choice. The home market can move slow and you save money in the long run. Jeff is there to answer any question or questions with a quick response. All the closing ( which was our biggest fear ) was walked through, faxed and finalized easier than we imagined. Your not selling your own home, your controling the process and saving realtor fees. This was a good investment for our family.

I would highly recommend the Flat Fee service provided by Jeff Kermath of Kermath Realty. The service and options were clearly stated on Jeff's website and all transactions were handled in a professional manner. The follow-up from Jeff helped us stay on track from initial offer thru closing."

Jeff Kermath’s service is highly effective and successful; we absolutely recommend it. He saved us $19,800 in commission! It was a long, tough sell in a tight, high-end market. Dealing with a difficult buyers’ agent, Jeff promptly and consistently assisted us throughout negotiations gone awry. He went above and beyond for us. His expertise, patience and support are truly appreciated.

The Flat Fee MLS listing and services package offered by Jeff Kermath is the greatest thing since the internet. It saved me more than $12,000, and I sold my house by using the Kermath package within two days. And the price was considerably over my list price. I bought his Deluxe MLS package which includes a 12-mont MLS listing, 25 photos and an automatic feed to Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, etc. I had more than 50 inquiries and a hundred people at my first and only open house. The access to MLS is key – it's a cheap entry to the real estate brokers' "club". Kermath's package also includes a sign, a lockbox and access to contracts, forms and helpful articles. And most priceless of all, Jeff is very responsive in providing expert advice in answering any newbie questions about how to sell your house without a listing broker.

Since our house was off the beaten path, we knew we couldn't just put up a 'For Sale' sign and wait for the offers to come pouring in. Using this service allowed us to get our listing out there for more people to see than we otherwise could have. Plus, we saved about $8,000 in commissions! Tom Carney, Alpena
My experience with using Kermath Realty LLC and Jeff Kermath for listing my home was exceptional.
The upfront process was simple with pre-defined forms that just needed to be completed and submitted electronically.
The most important thing, was that Jeff communicated quickly and effectively, offering suggestions and
advising of status.
In my case, I received about 15 requests for a showing and accepted a full price offer within 24 hours, which closed 5 weeks later.
I would highly recommend Kermath Realty LLC and Jeff Kermath.
Take care Jeff

As I said in our telephone conversation just now, our closing went uneventfully. Having you list our home was the best thing we could have done. We had many showings, three serious buyers and two offers, one of which we accepted. During the process, you spent a great deal of time negotiating with an extremely difficult Buyer's Agent. For that, alone, we were very grateful. My husband and I ended up with a very good price, and I would recommend your service to our friends. Having you list our home on the MLS saved us $20,000 in commission fees, money which we can now invest in our next home. We especially appreciated the time you took to come out to our home and take photos, in as much as we are technologically challenged. Thanks again for a relatively stress-free selling experience.

Just a note that Judy and I were very pleased with your service in the selling of our house. We never felt that we did not have a veteran Real Estate professional in our corner. When we have been asked a dozen times "How did yo sell your House so fast?'. We refer them to Kermath Realty and Mr. Jeff Kermath.
If not Thank You for your service and if we ever sell our Summer home here on the shores of Potagannissing Bay, mile north of Lake Huron in the St. Mary's river system, looking at St. Joseph's Island Canada, we will be sure to call you. But it we be a while!

We closed over a week ago and I've been meaning to email you and thank you for your product. People still can't believe that we closed in 4 weeks without paying full commission. I've recommended your product to many of my friends. Two of them will be signing up shortly.
Thanks for all your help.
