Find homes for sale. Search all real estate listings. Tour homes and make offers with the help of local Redfin real estate agents.
Redfin is a technology powered real estate brokerage with agents in twenty-five markets throughout the United States. Redfin combines a real estate search site with employed and salaried real estate agents. The firm was a pioneer of map-based real estate search for consumers, who use the site to find homes for sale, while the company’s local agents host tours, attend inspections, and handle property access, legal paperwork and negotiations.
Redfin offers buyers up to a 50% rebate (except in Oregon where real-estate laws prohibit it) on the commission paid to the buyer’s agent. A blend of technology and service also enables Redfin to charge a 1.5 percent listing fee for home sellers, which is less than the traditional 3 percent fee. The firm is led by Glenn Kelman
