Attention Connecticut Sellers... For the time being we have haulted listing services in Connecticut, HOWEVER:
Traditionally, Connecticut sellers have had two options to explore when selling their property: They could market their property on their own, limiting exposure and usually resulting in a longer time on market, or they could list their property with a local real estate agency; paying upwards of 5-6% of the purchase price for listing and selling.
Going against tradition, we are now giving sellers a third option, making the other two options regrettable. For an upfront flat fee seller’s in Connecticut now have an opportunity to market their properties on the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service (MLS) without having to pay outrageous listing commissions.
Our mission is to provide Connecticut sellers with the necessary marketing and support that is essential to getting the property sold. Our service saves sellers money and puts them in control. Our philosophy at Hillman Real Estate Inc is simple: We list. You sell.™
With our Connecticut flat fee MLS service customer service is everything. We understand that the highest level of support is needed at all times. To ensure your comfort we will educate you with selling process, which included tips and advice at no extra charge and certainly no commission. We are a real estate company. We understand the market.
Why go with a Connecticut Flat Fee MLS Service

CT Agent and Seller Relationships
Traditionally, real estate agents want to create a relationship with you, the seller, granting them the exclusive right to market your property. In other words, listing agents are asking you to give up your right to market your home "by owner" so they can do it and be paid for their services when they close the deal.
Since the real estate market is over saturated with traditional real estate agents many people just think they need to enter into an exclusive right to sell real estate agreement. This is not true.
Smart sellers who are "market savvy" will do research to find out that they do not have to go with a traditional listing agent to sell their house. They can enter into a non exclusive listing agreement with a flat fee real estate listing service. By doing this, the seller, can market on their own as well as market through the MLS for a flat fee. Many call this method the hybrid approach to selling real estate. We call it the smart way to sell real estate.
In order to sell your home on the Realtor MLS you must enter into an agreement. A listing cannot be entered into the MLS without first entering into an agreement with a agent. Doing so is against the MLS rules and regulations. When consumers hear the word "agreement" they often get overwhelmed, but the fact of the matter is that entering into an agreement shows professionalism and it will also protect your interest. As a seller, you should want the agent to put what they are going to do for you in writing.
With our CT flat fee MLS listing service we use an agreement called a Facilitation Listing Agreement. This agreement is the simple way to get your home onto the MLS without giving up your rights to market and sell without an agent.
Unlike a typical Connecticut FSBO service
No matter how many For Sale By Owner (FSBO) sites your home is listed on it will never reach the amount of buyers that your local Multiple Listing Service will. Regardless of what all the popular For Sale By Owner sites say on their testimonial pages - it will never happen. It doesn't matter which popular FSBO site you pick your wasting your money. Of course everyone likes to see SAVE 6% and NO COMMISSION tag lines but this is not realistic.
Did you know that over 85% of the homes listed in America sell on the Multiple listing Service? That's a lot of real estate. The real estate market has changed a lot over the last year and exposure is everything.
The great thing about our CT flat fee MLS service is that we are only looking for a flat fee - nothing else. Some real estate companies say they have a flat fee MLS service, but they are looking for more than a flat fee. Sometimes they will say that they will put your home on the CT Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to help you sell your home, but they will also say if they find a buyer for your property they would like to be compensated a small commission for doing so. With our Connecticut flat fee MLS service all calls we receive from interested Buyers will be directed to you. We will never attempt to convert a Buyer into a client of ours - never.
If you cruise around the web you may see many sites offering CT flat fee listing services but be sure to read the fine print. Many agents will say we have a few different types of discount services to offer you. Then the agent will come by your home and pitch you several options and steer you away from flat fee and into a full service plan. Our flat fee MLS service is exactly what we advertise. We will never push into something you don't need. We are focused on providing a great flat fee MLS experience.
