A full-service real estate brokerage, Exactly has been helping homeowners save thousands of dollars in commission when selling. And for those who are downsizing, that means keeping more of the equity they have built.

“Many homeowners who list their homes with Exactly after reading about us in Mimi are couples who are downsizing to move closer to their kids or somewhere warmer,” says Kevin Wasie, founder of Exactly. “We are able to save them money with our flat-rate package, instead of charging a percentage of the sale in listing commission fees.”

“We take a consultative approach to help homeowners sell their homes and save as much as they can on their costs,” he adds.

For one Medina couple, Exactly not only sold their home for over asking price, but also helped in the overall downsizing process.

“We connected them with a consignment company to sell a lot of their furniture and negotiated extra time for them to stay in their house after the offer was accepted to handle all the details that come with downsizing and moving out of state,” Kevin says. “This made the house-selling process less stressful, especially since they were moving from Ohio to North Carolina.”

The home-selling process is simple. An Exactly real estate agent meets with the homeowner to discuss goals, provides an in-depth comparative market analysis, does a walk-though to make sure everything is ready in the home, creates a marketing plan and lists the home.

Once a buyer submits an offer on the company’s proprietary software, the computer program immediately generates an offer summary sheet detailing everything from Exactly’s flat rate and any applicable buyers’ broker commission to home warranty costs and title insurance fees.

“Our fees are transparent so the homeowner knows exactly what is due to us,” says Kevin, who has an economics degree from John Carroll University. “We understand the stress of selling a home, which is why we created a process that is simple, transparent and effective.”
