Ready Real Estate is full service real estate brokerage headquartered in Dallas-Fort Worth that fuses the technology of today with the excellent service of our Realtors to create a smooth and positive real estate experience for our home buyers and sellers. Ready Real Estate is a fast growing company and our story begins in the early 2000’s.
History of Ready Real Estate
During the “dot com” boom of the early 2000s, Von Sutten served as Market Director for the Dallas-Fort Worth area for a venture-capital backed company called eRealty. eRealty was the first real estate company to display MLS listings online for homebuyers to see – in fact, they were even sued by the Austin Board of Realtors to prevent them from doing so. But eRealty prevailed and paved the way for the future of real estate as we know it today. When eRealty was merged with an “old-school” real estate company, Von Sutten was offered a “buy–out.” Instead, he started his own company.
I founded Ready Real Estate to move forward in real estate, not backwards. Ready Real Estate will be at the forefront of bringing new technologies not only to real estate consumers but to real estate agents, as well. – Von Sutten, Broker & Founder
Ready Real Estate provides each agent with the latest tools – such as online contract management systems, online training, agent websites and more. This has helped alleviate the top two client complaints about real estate agents:
- Lack of communication
- Lack of Agent Knowledge
Today – 100 Percent Commission, 100% Commitment to Agents & Clients
Ready Real Estate’s technology helps our agents improve in both these areas by warning them of impending deadlines, guiding them through transactions and alerting them of what forms are needed and when. This leads to a smoother, more streamlined experience for the home buyer & seller.
And, because Ready Real Estate offers our agents the highest pay in the industry – 100 percent commission – our agents are able to better customize and tailor their services for each individual client.
Additionally, Ready Real Estate operates centrally, as opposed to the fragmented presence of “old-school” real estate brokerages. This means Ready Real Estate agents are not limited to certain zip codes and are not tied to an office but are free to cover all corners of the Metroplex and beyond. It also means there’s no top-heavy bureaucracy so agents have the freedom to customize their services and commissions for each client. Click here to see some pictures of Ready Real Estate in action.
