Homeowner saves over $25,000 in commission fees after selling her home with local real estate brokerage in one day

An Ontario real estate brokerage is on a mission to save home sellers money in one simple way: A fair flat fee.
New Era Real Estate is a full-service brokerage which helps residents get their homes sold in Ontario, including Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Orangeville, Hamilton, Niagara, Guelph, Georgetown, Oakville, Milton, Burlington, Durham, and York.
Compared to the standard 2.5% – 5% commission that traditional brokerages charge, New Era charges only a fair flat fee of $5,900, resulting in amazing savings when selling.
One example is a recently sold Oakville townhome which went for $1,200,000. The seller saved $25,350 in commission thanks to New Era, which they put towards renting a condo for an entire year while deciding where to buy next — affording the seller the time to make the right move for her family after the sudden passing of her husband.
“Why were agents able to sell a home for $250,000 at 2.5%, but now think it’s justified to charge the same 2.5% for the same amount of work – if not less – for a million-dollar home?” said founder John Martino. “New Era Real Estate offers everything you would expect from standard brokerages and then some, but at a fair flat fee.”

In addition to the more affordable full service, New Era doesn’t lock its sellers into lengthy contract commitments, and they don’t ask for any payment at all until the property has been sold and the deal closed. What’s most impressive is that if they sell both sides (meaning there is no buyer agent) they will waive the buyer agent commission instead of pocketing it themselves — a rarity in the industry.
New Era’s full service includes market analysis, professional photography of your property, a variety of selling strategies, home preparation, a robust marketing/advertising campaign, schedule showings and buyer qualification, negotiation, and more. They handle everything from start to finish, making sure you don’t lift a finger.
Sellers also get access to a Personal Homeowners Portal (PHP) that provides everything they need to know about the sale of their home: Comparable properties, showing feedback and scheduling, messaging, contacts, paperwork breakdown and more, keeping sellers fully informed in real time while still having 24/7 access to their agent.
New Era’s website features a handy tool to determine how much a property is worth and how much money can be saved when selling with New Era compared to traditional brokerages.
