Redfin has arrived in the heart of San Joaquin Valley, also known as California’s largest inland city, Fresno! Residents of Fresno can now work with local Redfin agents to buy and sell homes and can use the Redfin online and mobile tools to search every home on the market.
Redfin combines in-person service and cutting-edge technology to truly revolutionize the home-buying and selling process. Our technology empowers both our agents and customers with information and tools that make buying and selling a home more efficient, less stressful and more fun.
Redfin real estate agents focus on delivering great service while helping clients buy or sell homes. This efficiency, powered by the best in technology, also enables Redfin to pass savings on to our clients. Someone who buys a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent in Fresno would receive a refund of over $1,500 at closing. Instead of the typical 3 percent commission, Redfin charges sellers a 1.5 percent fee. This means someone selling a $300,000 home with a Redfin agent would save $4,500.
Like all Redfin real estate agents, our agents in Fresno earn a salary and receive health care benefits. Their bonus pay is based on customer satisfaction, not commission. This means they are incentivized to make you happy!
Redfin hired Marti Cook to lead the team in Fresno. Marti has been helping people buy and sell homes since 2004 and has worked in many other facets of the real estate industry including home building, home renovation and lending. As a Fresno native (born and raised) and a CSU Fresno graduate, Marti is an expert on the local housing market and is excited to bring Redfin’s one-of-a-kind service and technology to her hometown.
“As a longtime real estate aficionado, and now a professional of over 10 years, I love helping people fulfil their unique real estate needs,” Marti says. “When I learned about Redfin, it was a match made in heaven. I told myself I had to work for this company. I’m thrilled to be part of the Redfin team and bring their philosophy of always putting the customer first to my hometown!”
Marti plans to expand the Fresno market and is already on the ground touring homes with buyers and guiding them through their offer, negotiation and closing. She’s helping people sell their homes, too. If you’re thinking about buying or selling, feel free to reach out to Marti, schedule a tour or start a conversation about your home’s value.
