What is Clever Real Estate?

Clever’s network of partner agents includes over 1,000 top local agents, who provide Clever home-sellers (and buyers!) with full service to list and market their home — and help with all of the paperwork and negotiations to get you through to closing — but at a fraction of the usual cost: just a flat fee of $3,000 if your home sells for less than $350K, or 1% commission if your home sells for more than $350K.
