PRICE.
PURPOSE.
PROPERTY.

Fact-based, transparent transactions for buyers and sellers where we bring price of real estate brokering back to what it should be!

sellers:

we’ll observe your home as a buyer would and combine our assessment with professional inspectors, photographers and AR technology to make your home market-ready.

 

you will also get a concierge to help you set up movers, change utilities, meet workman. Plus, you have an hour with a lawyer, accountant and therapist, on us. And, if you dig technology, we’ll communicate through a private Slack channel with you.

 

All these services, the same or more than you’d get from other brokers, but with arrivva you pay an all inclusive fee only $15,000. And the price includes the buyer-broker fee!  

one hour (on us) with other professionals to assist in the process: real estate attorney, tax accountant, and therapist (if needed).

private Slack(r) channel, and other tools to communicate efficiently, in addition to email, phone and text.

we pay for a professional inspection and termite report to guide us on how to make your property appealing to buyers. if needed, we will order a licensed appraisal to determine a more accurate value event after we run the narrp.com valuation sheet.

after careful analysis of the inspections, we figure out what repairs and/or gussying up we need to do.

we take photos and/or video of your home and then edit to add renderings with furniture added and renovations done, if needed.

the beautified house is then put on the market. We list on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Zillow, Trulia and all the other sites. Or we can do an off-market listing. It’s all up to you.

then comes home showing. We will brief you on how the home needs to look when we show it. All showings are completely private. We only allow buyers who are pre-approved or have proof of funds to see the home. Why? Security. Yours and ours.

 

We don’t do open houses because we don’t want just anyone to come into your home. Our job is to sell your house, not find new buyers or entertain lackadaisical looky-loos.

once a buyer makes an offer, we then negotiate for you and only you (remember, we don’t believe in threesomes) to get you the best deal we can.

buyers:

simple. we help you, soup to nuts, in a real estate transaction. once we find you the right place, we represent you and only you (remember, we don’t do threesomes) for the purchase. We will guide you throughout the purchase process, ensuring you are buyer prepared.

 

by the time you make an offer, you will be fully mortgage pre-approved through the Fannie Mae Desktop Underwriter® (DU®), you will have a well-written love letter, and an offer strategy that maximizes your position.

 

in the end, you get all of the buyer -broker fee that the seller has offered less a fixed flat fee of $7,500.

 

you will also get a concierge to help you set up movers, change utilities, meet workman (even 30 days after closing!) Plus, you have one hour with a lawyer, accountant and therapist, on us. And, if you dig technology, we’ll communicate through a private Slack channel with you.

New York Times: Should you Buy or Rent?

let’s find out

arrivva is accelerating
the industry

in many high-cost areas such as California, Colorado and Pennsylvania, the astronomical prices of homes are driven by macroeconomic factors beyond your control. low unemployment, limited inventory, high-technology company headquarters, etc. have driven sale prices to record levels and guess what? buyers and sellers are paying because traditional real estate brokerage firms charge commissions based on a percentage of the sale price. and when the market starts to slide and prices come down, a flat fee works even better.

 

at arrivva, we believe you should only pay for professional real estate services and not for all those factors outside of your control. we charge a flat, fixed, never changing fee with nothing hidden, so you know exactly what you’re paying for.

 

arrivva was founded by long-term real estate and mortgage broker Fred Glick, who has more than 30+ years of helping people get to real estate nirvana.

 

our well trained real estate property brokers and salespeople, who understand real estate economic realities and local markets, provide buyers and sellers the best representation for buying or selling.

flat fees not percentage commissions based on purchase price

integrity

our people

our real estate agents are local-area experts. but what sets them apart is their creative approach to buying and selling homes. they all subscribe to arrivva's philosophy that buyers and sellers should only pay real estate agents for what they do -- providing real estate services -- and not for extraneous market forces that drive up the sales prices of homes.

Fred Glick

Fred Glick

I am an unmitigated consumeresque housing advocate who believes in bringing the price of real estate commissions back to what they should be; allowing logical housing to be built; container home advocate; advocate for legislation to end dual agency and guesser of what interest rates and housing prices will do. On top of that, commissions need to come down, municipalities need to open their eyes and mortgages need more common sense underwriting. Let's talk.
