HOW IT WORKS
One of the most frequent ways we work with Realtors is through referrals on the selling side. The Realtor is able to maintain the listing and simply brings us in as their partner to meet the client’s goals. Our firm takes control of the marketing, while keeping your name and logo front and center with ours. The many Realtors who have worked with us walk away happy and thankful that we could be a solution to their clients' problems.
- We work with you to develop and implement a strategic 30-day marketing plan that showcases your client’s property to serious buyers.
- Buyers compete at auction for your client’s property.
- You and your client get paid in 30 days or less after the auction.

WHY IT WORKS
- An auction gives your client a unique advantage:
- By creating a sense of urgency
- Calling to action buyers who may be on the fence
- Auction buyers compete to see who will pay the most for a property
- The security deposit put down at the time of sale is a full 10%
- Once the hammer falls, the sale is final. No contingencies, no backing out
Every year, we pay thousands of dollars to Realtors who refer listings to us or who register buyers at our auctions. We pay 25% of our commission to any Realtor who registers and represents their client as the successful buyer. There are strict guidelines that need to be followed, so please read the Broker Compensation Form carefully before you fill it out.
"After selling real estate for more than 25 years and owning my own company, I have come to realize the power of auctions — that some properties will sell for more and quicker at auction than through a traditional listing. My father's property was one of those homes. Cottonwood Auctions did a great job of communicating with me and sold the home for more than we thought we would get for it. Plus, my father was so happy that he didn't have to have work done to the property first in order to sell it."
-Bruce L. Gordon, Broker/Owner of Hallmark Real Estate
"As a real estate agent, I would gladly partner with Cottonwood Auctions again. Megan and Tim were professional, punctual, and always helpful. They made the transaction extremely easy for me and smooth for my sellers. Cottonwood Auctions produced all of our marketing materials, scheduled everything, coordinated the transaction, and kept our sellers informed along the way. I simply took on a supporting role and received my normal commission. If all home sales were this easy, I could go on permanent vacation and leave the heavy lifting to Megan and Tim."
- Ritchie Vaughan, Realtor, Kline May Realty
"Cottonwood Auctions was a dream to work with! Coming from the Realtor side of listing properties, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when working with an auction company. Cottonwood Auctions could not have made the process smoother. From initially meeting with them about listing the property, to closing the transaction, Megan and Tim were exceptional to work with. They were both amazingly professional, detail oriented and highly responsive throughout the entire process. If I had a question, I knew I could rely on them for a thorough answer and a prompt response. I look forward to partnering with Cottonwood Auctions again in the near future and plan to refer auction-specific business to them without question!"
