Allow me to introduce myself - My name is Todd Burghardt and I am the managing broker and founder of Team Advantage Plus Realty.

After working with national franchises my entire career - I realized there is a better way to serve my clients and provide the ultimate in market exposure for their homes.

In my humble opinion, the national franchises are not staying competitive in the 21st century with the consumers searching on websites like trulia, zillow, and - just to name a few.

In the past, Real Estate Brokers held ALL of the information about homes on the market, market conditions, recently sold properties and protected that data from the general public.

TODAY - that is no longer the case. You can search numerous sites and discover ALL of the information about a specific property and neighborhood with the click of your mouse.

Yet, commission rates have pretty much stayed the same in the industry.

I started Team Advantage Plus Realty to be able to offer an optional FLAT LISTING FEE. Team Advantage Plus Realty IS NOT a discount brokerage. We simply offer a solution to high commissions being paid at closing and offer homeowners the opportunity to save hundreds - and sometimes THOUSANDS of dollars when selling their home.

We are - and always will be - a FULL SERVICE brokerage offering unsurpassed marketing for our clients and take advantage of ALL of the home search sites on the Internet.

Personally, I have always offered more to my clients than any other agent I know and I brought that same philosophy to Team Advantage Plus Realty.

Want to learn more about how I can save you thousands of dollars in commission and provide the best marketing strategies that result in a sale for a higher price in a short period of time?

Simply contact me for more information.

I look forward to earning your trust and saving you money!
