Redefy Editor's Review:

Redefy is a consumer-focused flat fee real estate franchise that works with a network of agents in several States.

As a listing agent, Redefy franchisee works with a seller to prepare homes for listing, including taking professional photos, pricing home and publishing marketing materials.

Redefy franchisee lists all homes on the local MLS as well as typical MLS Aggregators. Redefy franchisee provides services similar to those of a traditional real estate agent, but a much lower cost to the seller.

There are two important drawbacks of using Redefy – first, agents do not openly offer savings to buyers, second, each listing agent is an individual franchisee where the Redefy itself has no control or responsibility for each individual agent's actions.
