Who we are

FUTURA is a full-service real estate brokerage that puts the client's interest first! We save consumer's time and money.Unlike other real estate brokerages that use the same standard system and charge home-owners a convectional 5 to 6 percent commission distributed to both the buying agent and listing agent, we believe you should only pay for your portion .We simplify the real estate sale process and transfer tens of thousands of dollars in saving to the home-owner and buyer.

a. Savings to you

FUTURA provides options starting at 2.5 percent to Sellers and ZERO buyer’s commission for FUTURA clients. Traditional commissions typically range between 5% and 6% and these commissions are systematically controlled by the Listing agent.

b. How does FUTURA pass savings on to the consumer? What’s the catch?

There is no catch. For years, technology has simplified the way we work, live, and interact with each other. Most of the industry’s Selling and Buying process is done internally and online with superior results in less time. Less time means fewer operating costs. We pass this cost saving to FUTURA Buyers and Sellers as commission savings. Other real estate brokerages keep working the same standard business model with the same conventional commission base and absorb savings for themselves.

c. Full-service representation

FUTURA will support you through the entire Selling and Buying process. We will assign an experienced FUTURA Realtor to assist you from the beginning to the completion of your transaction.

FUTURA Marketing plans include professional photography, polished marketing materials, hosted showings, and open houses (subject to covid19 restrictions). We strive to find Sellers the highest possible market value, strategize from appeal to pricing, and navigate to a successful close of escrow.

Our Buyer resources include access to FUTURA Agents, FUTURA Attorneys, open houses, MLS listings, and lead to a beneficial experience where Buyers can submit offers and select commission base on your terms.

d. Selling with FUTURA 

We follow marketing industry standards among realtors. Your house will promptly be listed in the MLS, shared with Buyers’ agents and syndicated to online real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia to maximize exposure and result in more competition among Buyers.

No Pocket Listings

We DO NOT practice pocket listings also known as exclusive listings, double agency or marketed by some agents as off-market-listings and “Coming soon” in the MLS. Pocket listings do not benefit the consumer!.

Pocket listings are limited or never submitted to the MLS thus declining exposure. A system that favors a “special kind of Agent” to show properties only to a “Special Kind of Buyer” is restrictive and unfair to the consumer. Less exposure means reduced competition and lower sale price to the Seller. Pocket listings also stunt Buyers. National Association of Realtors assert that “90% of home buyers search[ed] online during the home-buying process”1, to which 90% of home Buyers would never see pocket listings.

It is unreasonable to properly sell your home while not notifying the market that your home is for sale. So, why do agents encourage pocket listing? Pocket listings benefit the agent. Agents want control of both selling and buying commissions to double their income.

e. Assigned Seller and Buyer Commission

FUTURA Sellers and Buyers are only accountable for their portion of the transaction. Options start at 2.5 percent to Sellers and ZERO Buyer’s commission for FUTURA clients.

FUTURA does not obligate the Seller to pay the buyer’s commission. We offer Buyers the ability to choose their own commission contracts on their own terms. Other brokerages prearrange commission contracts for the Buyer and drive up sale prices to then obligate the Seller to pay both commissions. The Seller and the Buyer lose tens-of-thousands of dollars in lost commission savings.

f. Consumers against the Real Estate Industry

Sellers are demanding change among real estate big businesses for years of unfair industry practices. Three United States Federal Courts have open cases in 2020 challenging common real estate practices, including alleged unfair listing contracts that obligate the Seller to pay the Buyer’s commission and violations against anti-trust laws.2

Buyers also challenge the real estate industry for negotiating Buyer’s commission between the Listing agent and the Seller, thus inflating prices. Buyers want to negotiate a fair commission with their own agents.

FUTURA’s Selling commission starts at 2.5 percent and Buyers can negotiate their terms starting with ZERO commission. We put the client’s interest first!
