Client Testimonials

Real people right here in Oregon telling their personal stories of how they saved lots of money AND received excellent service. What are you waiting for?

“So happy that Greg Messick – Realty NET is available to assist in marketing homes that are For Sale By Owner. Sold our home in less than three weeks and didn’t pay a penny to a Listing or Buyers agent. Saved us tens of thousands of dollars! Thanks!!”

Nick and Vicki Stephens, Bend Oregon – Saved $21,210.00

“VERY EASY process that saved me nearly $6K not having to pay a realtor to represent me. Greg quickly responded to my emails with any questions I had. I initially tried advertising with Craigslist and Zillow without much luck but shortly after getting my house listed on MLS I had realtors calling me and asking to show my home. I gave them the code to a lockbox I’d purchased at Home Depot….I got some offers and that’s it. The website offers forms you can use or if the buyer has a realtor they can supply forms. The Title Company does the rest!! Not difficult at all. I’ll never waste money on a realtor again and will encourage friends to use this method as well. I’m very happy with the way it worked out.”

Jon Jensen, Jefferson Oregon – Saved $6,000.00

“Realty NET is a great way to personally market and sell your property. Greg provides excellent customer service and is very timely for making changes to the listing.”

Olga Carlson, Lake Oswego, Oregon – Saved $36,600.00

“I worked with Greg as a limited representation agent and successfully sold my home in just 28 days (signed a Limited Full Service Agreement with Greg on April 23rd and closed escrow on May 21st). Greg was very helpful in understanding and navigating the overall process and he quickly responded to my emails and phone calls. Anyone thinking of selling FSBO would do well to contact Greg at Realty NET. It was an excellent overall experience and I will definitely use his services again. Many “Thanks” to Greg and his staff!”

Tim Bedortha, Sherwood Oregon – Saved $6,500.00

“I had a very pleasant experience using ByOwnerOregon.com. The website was very efficient and provided clear directions to help finalize our the sale of our home. The response time and overall professionalism of the broker was impressive. I would highly recommend working with ByOwnerOregon.com to the D.I.Y. entrepreneur.”

Ryan Ash, Portland Oregon – $21,250.00

“Yes the market is slow. I tried FSBO on Craigslist for two years on and off then I found ByOwnerOregon.com. With the help of Greg and his website I had a showing everyday and sold my house in less than two weeks. I used the electronic lock box option and it was well worth it. I received an e-mail notifying me every time someone showed my home. Did ByOwnerOregon.com. work? YES it did… You will save thousands using ByOwnerOregon.com. (I did) This is a must for a FSBO hands down.Thank you for having your site and help.”

Jim Vanicek, Grants Pass Oregon

“SOLD! In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical and somewhat nervous about taking on the task of doing a by owner sale on my home. The web site at ByOwnerOregon.com was very easy to use and stepped me through the entire process. On occasion, I did have some questions and Greg was right there to answer them for me. I saved a boat load of money by selling my home through ByOwnerOregon and in todays difficult market, this was critical. Thank you! -Bill O.”

Name: Tom HowardCity: Salem State: Oregon

Name: Teri BraunCity: Tigard State: Oregon

“Using the ByOwnerOregon.com website, we were able to take control of our own home sale, and save money in the process. The website was easy to use, and it was a smooth process to ask questions for any needed help. For those who take pride in the care of your home, this process allows you to take pride in the sale of your home as well.”

Name: Paul N. – Repeat CustomerCity: Eagle Point State: Oregon

“The service you provide has been the best way for me to sell a property. It gets listed on the local MLS and yet provides a way to save money by selling direct to a buyer. I like the flexibility of the method and it has proven effective for me.”

Name: Kindy Miller City: Corvallis State: Oregon

“Hi Greg, Just letting you know that we accepted a full price offer and the realtor is suppose to open escrow today. She was going to forward the sales agreement on to you. Is this all that I need to do so that I don’t get a fine? Thanks for the service. It worked!!!! View Listing Take care, Kindy”

Name: Jim JaquaCity: Sisters State: Oregon

“First, we sold the property to a person who responded the day after we listed. Second, the process of getting listed was much more complicated and continuous than I expected with a lot of back and forth. Third,and most important, Greg and Ronel were responsive and helped me get things right whenever I had a question.”

Name: Jerry McCreaCity: Monmouth State: Oregon

“We had our home listed with a full service broker for 18 months without a sale. We lowered the price and listed with By Owner Oregon and found a buyer the very next day. Next time we list a home I will use By Owner Oregon from the start.”

Name: Carl MillerCity: Bend State: Oregon

“We sold our home ourselves using ByOwnerOregon.com. They were very helpful and the process was straight forward and easy to create our MLS listing. I honestly don’t think our home would have sold if it weren’t listed on the MLS by ByOwnerOregon.com, it made our (for sale by owner) home visible to buyers. We would definitely use ByOwnerOregon again! Thanks!”

Name: Tim McGuillCity: Portland State: Oregon

“My decision to select ByOwnerOregon.com was primarily based on their “professional” product offerings. MLS listing services are easy to purchase; however one that includes a Realty comparable signs, fliers, and lock boxes is not the norm. And beyond product offerings, Greg and his staff exceeded every one of my expectations throughout the selling process. I had a unique property which took some time to sell and I received prompt responses and actions when submitting changes. Using ByOwnerOregon.com saved me ~$15k! I’d gladly use their services again.”

Name: Matt KellyCity: Portland State: Oregon

“ByOwnerOregon.com was an outstanding experience for me. Coming out of a negative experience with a realtor, I found this option. Renting an RMLS lock box allowed for realtors to come and go as they pleased. I paid a flat fee for the services, and was able to monitor and oversee my house sale without a middle man. I would HIGHLY recommend this service to anyone that is hesitant to work through a realtor!”

Name: Casey HarringtonCity: Portland State: Oregon

“We have had a great experience working with Greg at ByOwnerOregon.com. He has been very helpful throughout the process of listing and selling our home. This service has saved us a lot of money! Thanks so much!”

Name: Suzanne CookCity: Grants Pass State: Oregon

“Greg and Ronel with ByOwnerOregon.com were just wonderful to work with through our sale. They really went the extra mile for me as I had alot of changes to my listing through the process and they were very responsive and helpful with the whole listing process. I thought it was an incredible value for the service I received. In this market, it really helped to get a discount when we had to sell our house for such a discount.Thank you Greg and Ronel, you were great to work with!”

Name: Charlie LandmanCity: Porland State: Oregon

“I recently closed the sale of my house in SE Portland using ByOwnerOregon’s services. Although some people think real estate is complicated, the forms are pretty simple and Greg was always available for advice as needed. My buyer also did not use a traditional broker, so I saved over $20,000 on the transaction. I highly recommend this service.”

Name: Lisa DavidsonCity: Salem State: Oregon

“What I like about your program is the flexibility it provides. We wanted to sell our home quickly, but didn’t want the high cost of using a realtor. Your service helped us accomplish our goals. We had a full price offer within a week of listing, which is unusual in the current market. Thank you so much!”

Name: N. OlsenCity: Oregon City State: Oregon

“This program provided my home the exposure that it needed on the MLS system to get realtors to bring clients by and ultimately led to the sale of my home during a very tough real estate market.”

Name: SaraCity: Hillsboro State:Oregon

“We saved ourselves over $8000 with ByOwnerOregon.com. All the resources I needed were provided–full MLS listing, sign with flyer box, and all necessary forms. I felt like I had complete control of my listing and showings. When we sell our new house, we’ll definitely be doing it this way again.”

Name: Eric OlsonCity: Hillsboro State: Oregon

“It was a pleasure working with ByOwnerOregon.com. I was able to save enough on commission costs to be able to buy new flooring for my next home! The process was simple and easy to understand if you’re willing to do the leg work. If you’re saavy and organized, I would recommend this as a cost effective way to sell your home.”

Name: AdeleCity: Salem State: Oregon

“We sold our home in less than two months and got what we wanted for it! We saved over $6,000 in fees we would have paid to a realtor and the only extra work I had to do was to come home from work a few times to show it! All you need in this internet age to sell your house is a MLS number, a few good pictures and a great description of your house, and ByOwnerOregon.com! It’s a no brainer; I will never pay another real estate agent again!”

Name: Lisa TCity: Portland, OR State: Oregon

“I had my house on the market for 3 months and it did not sell. I listed it with ByOwnerOregon.com under their silver package and reduced the price by my agent’s commission and had several offers with in 2 weeks. Now my house is sold and because the buyer had no agent I got more cash in pocket then I would have if my agent had sold it even though I lowered the price. I would recommend trying if you don’t sell you can always hire a full service agent latter on. The cost is really minimal compared to what you will pay a full service agent.”

Name: Avi TevetCity: Portland State: OregonComments: Accepted an offer in 3 days!”

Name: Stacy RexCity: Bend State: Oregon

“Flat Fee MLS is the only way to go. We had our house listed with a realtor and they did a poor job describing our property and bringing in potential buyers. Needless to say, we terminated our contract and set off to sell it ourselves. After trying for nearly a year on our own, we got a little more traffic and a few people interested but nothing concrete. I had heard of paying a flat fee to have our property listed on MLS and still be able to do a FSBO. I came upon this site and signed up immediately. The website was easy to navigate and when I had questions, my calls were returned very quickly. Once we were listed on MLS, we were showing our house 2-3 times per week until it sold and it only took 3 months! We had to pay a commission to our buyers agent but we still saved about $3000 or more because we were able to sell it more quickly without dealing with a listing agent. Thank you so much for this site. We will be back for sure the next time we need to sell.”

Name: Ernesto SuarezCity: Beaverton State: Oregon

“It was great, not only we saved the listing cost, but the selling cost. The buyer saw us in the internet and came to us alone. He told us that he didn’t believe in having realtors driving him around. Thanks.”

Name: Jennie HakeCity: Portland State: Oregon

“I would definitely recommend By Owner Oregon to anyone. Greg made it really easy and always responded to my questions and emails right away. Made the whole process a lot easier!”

Name: Barbara AndrewsCity: Portland State: Oregon

“All the tools I needed to sell my house without the exorbitant fees of a realtor! I made changes to my listing as needed and sold the house in a reasonable amount of time. I would definitely use them again to sell a property.”

Name: Sean HawkinsCity: Oregon City State: Oregon

“RealtyNetllc.com was easy to work with and did a great job! We would definately use them again. I am surprised that more realestate agencies aren’t going this route for selling properties.”

Name: Jani Rollins City: Ashland State: Oregon

“I sold my house in three weeks! I am a beginner computer user and Greg helped me through the process. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I saved a lot of money by avoiding realtor fees.”

Name: Angela Badie City: Beaverton State: Oregon

“I’d recommend By Owner Oregon to anyone selling a house. Even in this difficult market, we found success selling ourselves. The team was responsive and great to work with.”

Name: Greg OrnduffCity: Canby State: Oregon

“We heard about ByOwnerOregon.com from a friend. We listed and sold our house in 25 days! Greg Messick and team provided the necessary tools and support that we needed to sell our own home. Excellent communication and very patient with new sellers. A must if you want to sell your home by owner.”

Name: James WuCity: Oregon City State: Oregon

“Great service. I sold for full asking price which was quite a feat in this real estate market. I would recommend to anyone who likes to save some money.”

Name: Doug SpencerCity: Salem State: Oregon

“We were nervous about selling our home on our own, specially in such a tough market, but we had to because we couldn’t afford to pay a 6% commission. We sold our home in a little over a month. The service we received on ByOwnerOregon.com made it easy to sell our home. I would recommend them to anyone.”

Name: Rollie WhiteCity: Portland State: Oregon

“The folks at ByOwnerOregon.com did a great job helping us sell our property. We had put the place up completely by owner, offering a courtesy to Broker, and got very few calls and inquiries. A week later, we listed it via ByOwnerOregon.com with a low flat fee and immediately had 20+ showings in three days, and our full price buyer made an offer the third day. This is in a “Buyer’s Market” with average market times over 50+ days. Greg Messick was extremely helpful and very responsive to our e-mailed questions about how the process works. The website they helped us create was beautiful, and being listed in the MLS made all the difference in this challenging market. If we ever have to sell another house, we’ll be sure to use ByOwnerOregon.com again!”

Name: David & Dixie WoodallCity: Portland State: Oregon

“I would recommend your program to anyone who feels he or she can market their home themselves. There is no reason to pay a listing agent 3% for putting a sign in your yard. Most buyers come from your sign or another realty firm. With by owneroregon.com you get a professional sign, lock box and listing in the mls service for 1 year for a set fee.”

Name: Pam FournierCity: Bend State: Oregon

“Your firm was very helpful. I would definitely use your flat fee listing service againand will recommend you to anyone who wants to sell their own house.Thanks Pam”

Name: Kim FittsCity: Albany State: Oregon

“Hi Greg, Your listing of our home was just what we needed to get qualified buyers interested and looking. We sold our home in two weeks after the listing and had a showing at least once a day and sometimes more… Bill and I definitely recommend your services. Thanks so much!”

Name: Linda ReinCity: Portland State: Oregon

“I was able to sell my home quickly. This is a great service for someone who is comfortable doing the leg work and negotiating themselves.”

Name: Bill Roberts Jr.City: Roseburg State: Oregon

“Greg’s company did exactly what it said it would do. They listed my home on several websites, including the RMLS site. They listed the property on a timely basis and everything on the listing was exactly as I had indicated on the input sheet. Greg’s website to develop a home sale flyer was also very helpful. Greg and his office were responsive. When I called or emailed, they got back to me in short order. Good job. We accepted an offer on our home in 20 days after it was listed.”

Name: Randy GouldCity: Salem State: Oregon

“My fiancee and I both used your service to sell our homes. It was real easy as long as you took the initiative to market your home yourself. For my home, I advertised online on the website and also put ads in the saturday paper for sunday open houses etc. My fiancee’s house…We marketed similarly…Her house was more attractive and hence we had a lot of traffic…I was pretty up front during the open houses that I was not a realtor but a personal representative. things went well…My fiancee got more than she was asking…We did deal with a realtor and hence paid a commission but it was well worth it.I would recommend this service for people that are comfortable dealing with people, and who are willing to take the initiative to do it on your own. We saved about $16,000 total.”

“After doing a lot of research I found that byowneroregon.com provided the best value. Our home sold in about 2 months after listing and this service saved us $6500 in realtor fees and provided the potential to save even more if someone approached us without representation. I would recommend this service and use it again!”

Kelly Kamhoot, Portland Oregon

“It was a great experience and I don’t think we’ll ever sell with a traditional realtor again!”

Sarah Foster, Portland Oregon

“You guys were great to work with.”

Caia Cupito, Ashland Oregon

“Anytime I had a question or problem, I was given prompt answers/help. Thank you for this service.”

Laura Nault, Oregon City, Oregon
