SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Redfin (www.redfin.com), the customer-first real estate brokerage, today announced the launch of its home-buying and selling services in New Hampshire. People can now work with Redfin agents to buy and sell homes in all 10 counties across the state, including Rockingham, Hillsborough and Merrimack.
“Redfin’s love for New England is growing, from our roots in Boston since 2007, to Rhode Island last year, and now New Hampshire,” said Redfin Market Manager Alex Coon. “New Hampshire has everything from mountains to beaches with farms in between and Boston commuters in the south, creating many very different real estate markets within a relatively small area. We’re excited to help grow and serve buyers and sellers in each community across the state.”
Redfin has a unique approach that combines technology and top-notch customer service to create a real estate experience that’s better for consumers. Redfin technology empowers both agents and consumers with information and tools that make the home-buying and selling process more efficient, less stressful and more fun. Redfin agents are paid a salary and receive benefits, with customer satisfaction — not transactions — determining each agent’s bonuses. All reviews for every Redfin agent are published on their online profiles.
Redfin also works to put money back into the pockets of both its home-buying and selling customers. Redfin refunds homebuyers a portion of the buyer’s agent commission. For example, someone buying a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent in Nashua would receive a refund of over $1,500 at closing. Instead of the typical 3 percent commission, Redfin charges sellers a 1.5 percent fee. This means someone selling a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent would save $4,500. To date, Redfin has saved its customers more than $200 million in real estate fees.
Redfin hired industry veteran Mark Callahan to lead the business in New Hampshire. Callahan has been in real estate in New Hampshire and the Boston area for over 25 years, starting his career as an appraiser before becoming a real estate agent. He went on to be the broker-owner of his own company, The Callahan Company, and then was co-owner of six real estate franchises across Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Callahan’s entrepreneurial spirit attracted him to Redfin and the company’s mission of making the home-buying and selling processes easier and more enjoyable.
“Helping people navigate the biggest financial purchase of their lives and adding real value to their decision-making process has always been the best part of my job,” Callahan said. “I’m excited to join Redfin and pair excellent customer service with Redfin’s state-of-the-art technology to give New Hampshire homebuyers and sellers a first-rate experience.”
With the arrival of Redfin, people can now use state-of-the-art online and mobile tools to quickly access the most accurate and up-to-date information about homes for sale and the home-selling process in New Hampshire.
