    Dissatisfying Experience with Clever Realty

    My experience with Clever left me deeply dissatisfied. I had high hopes that this alternative to traditional real estate would save me money, but in reality, it cost me more than if I had gone with a conventional realtor. The agent Clever connected me with exhibited a lackluster approach, putting minimal effort into selling my home and failing to host an open house. Their laziness and unprofessionalism were apparent throughout the process, and it was disheartening to see them so disengaged. As a result, I took a significant loss in selling my home, and the entire experience left me feeling thoroughly disheartened. I regretfully cannot recommend Clever to anyone based on my negative encounter.

    Authentic estate was excellent

    The seller's authentic estate was excellent. The reps were clever and present. The transaction was not followed up. Poor. I thought you went out of business.

    The most pleasant

    The local proficient team of agents within hours after expressing a desire to sell the house. Agent number one, Catherine Caldwell, was prompt, courteous, and professional and provided me with the most pleasant house sales experiences (this was my sixth house sale). The offer was accepted within three days after the listing. We would highly endorse Clever Real Estate!

    A fantastic professional

    I had never heard of Clever when it appeared while I was looking for a realtor. I researched, followed up, and discovered a fantastic professional, reliable local realtor who assisted me in home-buying. They stood by their word, and they even sent me 250 dollars. Excellent, and much needed when I first moved into.

    Highly recommend

    Eli Strickland made this process effortless for us. We highly recommend he and his son Jack assist you in selling and purchasing your new house. They're available at all stages of the procedure. You can reach them anytime. They're experienced and answer any concerns. They have relieved you of a lot of stress you could experience while buying and selling your home.

    The most beneficial

    The choice of an agent from your firm was the most beneficial choice I could make. My agent helped me feel at ease having her sell my home. She was always in touch and actively involved throughout the period. Her professionalism was outstanding from beginning to end.

    A fantastic job

    Our Realtor, Alisha Brown, has done a fantastic job. The Clever rep was there throughout the day once we contacted our agent. She regularly checked in to ensure we were pleased with the service but wasn't disruptive. It was nice to save money. However, we did not receive any cut-rate service.

    Excellent suggestions

    My agent was attentive to me and offered excellent suggestions for getting my house in the best condition to ensure everything went smoothly. From the initial meeting until the closing, everything went smoothly. I received excellent service for the cost of a lower commission. It's a win-win situation for everyone. So why pay more for compensation? There is no reason for me not to give my agent a 10.

    Quickly as possible

    Working through our Clever team and with the realtor we discovered through Clever was a pleasure. The agent was knowledgeable, experienced in locating comps, and purchased as straightforwardly and quickly as possible. We saved a lot of money with this method and would never hesitate to suggest Clever.

    Highly responsive

    I've already recommended a friend to use Clever to save money while selling his house. Clever connected me to meet Shannon of Keller Williams. Shannon is highly responsive and helpful and has customers' most vital interests in mind. The only issue I faced was when she decided to hand me over to her manager broker. Apart from that, I would consider using Clever again.

    Wasted time, don't recommend

    The agent was released (one out of two). The other was rude and made fun of. The man who showed up said he would bring the moon and stars but soon began withdrawing and pursuing his agenda. It wasted time; I don't recommend it.

    Chris Johnson is an excellent real estate agent

    I could not find an agent with more experience to help me through this period of economic uncertainty. Chris Johnson is an excellent real estate agent. He is expertly trained, knowledgeable, steady, confident, and responsive in times when he's most needed. Because he knew how to handle complicated transactions/situations, it relieved me of much worry and anxiety.

    It's a fantastic opportunity

    It's a fantastic opportunity to save $7000 in closing costs. And we also employed an agent from the same company to assist us in finding a new home, and she is now getting the entire commission! WIN-WIN

    The experience working alongside Jessica H. Was awesome

    The experience working alongside Jessica H. Was awesome. She guided us through the entire process, starting (on Apr 22) until the end (Nov 9), in the manner of saints. She was highly attentive and unwavering in working with the builder's rep to ensure our concerns were taken care of. Six stars is an excellent rating.

    Alan Hamson did a fantastic job

    Alan Hamson did a fantastic job of selling our house. We were successful in selling our home within two weeks! It was the most successful selling experience we've ever encountered, and it helped us reduce costs by negotiating commissions. Alan was extremely helpful in assisting us with the house's belongings when we moved out of town and moved to Texas. I would recommend Alan to any person! Thank you, Alan, to everyone for your kindness.

    Clever was quick

    Clever was quick to find agents in my neighborhood ready to assist me with selling. The agent we worked with was well-established, including being named the valley's top agent in the past. His research suggested our asking price as affordable, resulting in an offer that was fully priced within two days. It's an understatement to say we were happy! We want to thank Clever for connecting us with an excellent agent!

    Poor customer service

    My experience was five out of five stars due to my representative, Nicole Folks. Making money from commissions was great, but I was worried that this might signal poor customer service. There was nothing further than that. Any homeowner can sell their home in a crowded market, but it was about to plunge when I put up my home. Nicole's many years of experience became evident when she guided me to price my house at a comparable level to the market and yet managed to earn me a $25K increase over my asking price, with no complications in what was becoming an era of buyers' market.

    While I was skeptical at first

    While I was skeptical at first, I was initially skeptical; the Clever team helped me find an excellent agent in less than one day. The agent who arrived was highly professional, polite, and experienced. She confirmed everything that Cleaver said about the price. From the listing to closing, the agent was constantly in touch and kept in contact throughout the process. This was why it was so great to know that Clever was able to provide an excellent real estate agent.

    Overall, it was a good experience

    The site was simple to navigate, and we received exactly what was promised. It was a fantastic method to reduce the cost of selling our house. The agent we picked was highly proficient at what he did. The only issue was the constant reminders that he was not being compensated enough, even though realtors were willing to participate in this program. The service was not professional. However, we were pleased with his service and the knowledge he offered us. Overall, it was a good experience, and I will use Clever again.

    The Experience Was Great

    The Experience Was Great, But Not Enough Open Houses. Also, The Final Walk Through Was Done By The Owners Friends and Realtor. I was Never Contacted By Our Realtor or Their Realtor in This Situation. Need to Be Informed Of This Happening. The Friends Did Not Buy the House. It Was the Owners Who Entered Into a Contract. Other Wise Eric was Great!

    Clever put me in touch in a relationship with Shannon of Keller Williams. She's excellent, quick, and always has her customers' most vital interests in mind. The only issue I faced was when she chose to hand me over to her manager broker. Apart from that, I would use clever again, and I have already recommended a friend of mine to use innovation to save money in selling his house.

    The property was sold within two weeks

    We worked with an agent in the area who was very skilled. The property was sold within two weeks, with a higher price than the asking price. Because it was a lower commission arrangement, the value we got was not reduced.

    Just as great as the person you are given

    The house was sold, but the agent, though lovely, was managing a high volume (or they were working on their own), and they were capable of providing a minimum of service. There were a few lapses in communication and some shoddy work. Still, the savings are worth it over a traditional real estate agent.

    Find someone else who can let you set your commission rates

    When I first spoke with Clever, they told me they could let me set my buyer's commission on agents. Not so! The agent I wanted to get to know stated that he would not take this listing until I offered a minimum of 2.5 percent, both agents who contacted me noted the same thing. Find someone else who can let you set your commission rates

    She's about an hour away

    I wanted to save a few dollars via Clever R.E. However, the agents they connected with weren't the right fit for me. One was located in Rhode Island, and I'm selling in Massachusetts. She's about an hour away. Is she likely to be able our house if needed? The two other had been Real Estate investment firms whose goal was to offer the lowest cost possible. In my situation, the adage is true "you get what you pay for."

    Be Upfront and Disclose it All

    I'm sorry to have to write a negative review. I took to heart Chris Ohm's statement, "There will be no extra charges or fees, just $3000 for listing and 2.5-3 percentage buyer's agent fees. This was even after I asked three or four times about additional fees or costs. However, Clever did not discuss the closing costs sellers will have to pay in the final. It was not until I spoke to the agent I used that I learned these additional closing fees aren't part of the listing fee of $3000. It was foolish to believe that it's important if the advertisements or representatives do not tell the customer, "But there might be the cost of closing to discuss the agent."

    Service SUCKS!

    I contacted Clever Real Estate to use the service. I provided my initial information. A call came the next day and told them that I was working and would call them back at 4:30 pm. They never responded ever again. Calls and messages were left. There was no return call. Finally, I tried calling back this morning, and a young lady rang back. She said she didn't know the reason for what happened—using a traditional Real Estate broker. Service SUCKS!

    Fraudulent Advertisement

    Clever claims that every Clever Partner Agent has agreed to provide full service and support in exchange for an upfront fee of $3000 or 1% for homes that exceed $350,000. However, The agent I was recommended to me by Clever of the Woodlands, Tx, told me I'd have to pay $150 to take photos and $350 for a transaction coordinator.

    I am disappointed with using Clever

    I am disappointed with using Clever, mainly when the market was performing very well. The agent who referred me was the most unfavorable one I could find. Clever's business model doesn't permit sellers to get the best price. The primary goal is to ensure that your house is sold at a price lower than what it is worth. It is best to use traditional agents that get the 6% commission and tend to be keener to sell your house at a high price.

    Awful experience!

    The Clever was a complete sham. Keep your distance as from them as you can. They're only helpful to lure you in, but they're not to be located if problems occur. It appears to be a fraud, with agents you do not even meet who could invite anyone to check for your home. It would help if you were cautious about this. I've never had such an awful experience as this. Don't think I didn't warn you.

    Save significant amounts of money by using Clever. All in all, a satisfying experience. I was offered a range of agents and then chosen just one. The chosen agent was exceptional. Clever kept me on edge by following in on the progress of the process. I will use in the future.

    The whole process went smoothly

    Clever referred us to an agent in the area who was familiar with the site and was helpful through all phases of the selling process. They also were willing to sell our house for a 1% fee. The whole process went smoothly, and we were pleased with our interactions between Clever and the realtor they assisted us in finding.

    Clever was extremely responsive

    Clever was highly responsive. She walked me through each step and then checked in about my service. The agents I was matched with were professional and had extensive knowledge of my area.

    The service I received was excellent from the agent that I chose from my matches. Even though the commission structure was lower, it did not affect the quality of the service. Clever has many benefits that I am happy with, and there are no negatives.

    From Skeptical to Enthusiastic

    When I tried to sell my house, I found myself in an unusual situation. My build was too high for the area, with very few comps. I also didn't know any local realtors I could trust in this situation, let alone invest a commission of 6%. But I thought it might work, or I could try this Clever system, which was entirely new. The results were terrific!

    In the beginning, I was offered two options (with additional options if they weren't what my needs were). Both were very pleasant to me when I interviewed them. Both were very knowledgeable and interested in the property. Both would have been very easy to choose. One had the best approach for me, so I decided on them both. I chose the one that I didn't like. She was very gracious about it. I would work with her again and highly recommend her.

    We were listed very quickly, and the process was smooth. The realtor I selected was very attentive to my needs as I set the price. Even before the open house, we received a complete value offer. The county incorrectly rated my property and put it on the fact list. This square footage fact must be included in the listing. We ended up losing the sale.

    The buyer's appraiser took advantage and tried to force/bully for a meager price. We received several offers immediately and settled on an all-cash offer within two weeks. Although it wasn't the listing price, it was fair considering the square footage difference and the time required to complete additional appraisals for lenders. It was a win-win situation for me and the couple who bought the home.

    My realtor was the best! He was highly professional, knowledgeable, and had all the resources he needed throughout the entire process. He assured me that they would work as hard as I paid them, and they did. He was a true professional and didn't miss a beat when we had to deal with the snags.

    Clever was a great experience! He was always honest with me and allowed me to make my own decisions. He was always ethical and worked for the best outcome for everyone, but I was his only client. Clever was cheaper than other options, and I was able to take a chance and make the sale. However, Clever helped me find a realtor I would pay 6% for!
