Non-Traditional Agents

When agents are paid on commission, it can be hard to tell if they are working for you or the paycheck. Redfin decided to change the game and reinvent real estate, so that our agents are looking out for you!  Their only objective is to help you find your perfect home.

Our agents are employees, so they don't work on commission like traditional agents do. Making agents employees puts them in a better position to serve you. Since they are paid a salary, they are not in competition with each other.

Think about what that means: they work as a team and they are motivated to make you happy--not to close-the-deal.
