SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(NASDAQ: RDFN) — Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate company, today announced it has expanded its Redfin Premier luxury real estate service nationwide. Consumers can now work with an expert Redfin Premier agent to buy or sell luxury homes in every market where Redfin provides agent service.
Redfin Premier service was designed to deliver the best experience in luxury real estate. It matches luxury homebuyers and sellers with a top Redfin Premier agent who has years of experience buying and selling high-end properties. Redfin has offered Redfin Premier service to home sellers in select markets since 2020 and expanded its service to homebuyers earlier this year.
“Redfin Premier has helped thousands of homeowners sell their luxury homes, and that experience has taught us a lot about what it means to provide high-end service,” said Mia Simon, vice president of Redfin Premier. “We’re excited to offer an unmatched luxury real estate experience to customers across the country, no matter where they want to move.”
Proven expertise for luxury homes
Redfin agents already rank in the top 1% of agents working at any nationwide brokerage,* and Redfin Premier agents are the best of that group. On average, Redfin Premier agents close nearly three times as many deals on homes priced at the high end of the market than other Redfin agents. They know how to price, prepare, and market luxury homes so they attract qualified buyers and sell for more. Redfin Premier agents work with sellers to recommend the right staging and finishes to help maximize their sale price. They can also pair clients with a design concierge in available markets to professionally manage more detailed renovations.
Sophisticated marketing to reach luxury homebuyers
When it’s time to list, Redfin Premier beautifully captures every detail of the home, with professional video tours, high-resolution photography, drone and twilight views, and detailed interactive 3D scans that let prospective buyers virtually tour the home from anywhere in the world. Redfin Premier listings get preferred placement on Redfin, the most visited nationwide brokerage site, where luxury listings get over 600 million views each year. Redfin Premier also reaches potential buyers for each listing both locally and globally via luxury publications, social media, coordinated email campaigns, luxe mailers and more.
Lower fees. Higher proceeds.
Luxury home sellers receive exceptional service while keeping more of the proceeds from their home sale with a listing fee of 1%** for customers who buy and sell with Redfin. That's less than half of what other brokerages commonly charge. Redfin does not charge additional fees for working with a Redfin Premier agent.
“Redfin Premier challenges the notion that luxury service should cost more just because it’s a luxury product,” Simon said. “We know that luxury home sellers want the best possible service and offering, at the best value. That’s why we’re proud to offer the best agents and the sophisticated marketing clients expect, all for a lower fee.”
With Redfin Premier, qualified buyers are matched with an elite Redfin Premier agent who will provide personalized, attentive service from the first home tour to closing. Redfin Premier agents have their ear to the ground of the local high-end market thanks to the relationships they have built with other agents and luxury home sellers. And since Redfin updates listings every 5 minutes, buyers see homes first and are able to tour them quickly, even the same day.†
"Moving is stressful, especially when you're dealing with high-end homes, but working with a Redfin Premier agent helps eliminate that stress,” said Los Angeles Redfin Premier agent Amy Black. “Redfin Premier agents have years of experience guiding clients through the entire moving process and have built incredible negotiating skills to help you get the best deal. They do everything they can to make the experience seamless."
