Another Tool In Your Briefcase
So, you’re a licensed Realtor. You have questions about auctions and have heard about the growth trend in real estate auctions. Well, you are in the right place. Auctions are a great way to buy and sell property, and consumers are demanding this method of sale more and more everyday.
You may simply refer us a name and number and collect a 1% referral fee (of the high bid amount) or you can elect to stay involved in a Co-Op Auction, giving your client the benefit of your sphere of influence combined with our auctioning talent and award-winning marketing campaigns. A Co-Op Auction offers 3% of the high bid amount to you as a cooperative/referral fee and keeps you involved in many tasks such as showing, open houses, attending the auction, assisting in contracting and assisting our closing department in coordination of closing the sale.
As a licensed Realtor, you probably often get asked by your Buyers about Real Estate Auctions. At McCurdy Auction, LLC we want you to feel welcome at our auctions. If you have a Buyer who wants to purchase an auction property, you no longer have to leave them on their own when it comes to buying at auction. All the information relating to the property is packaged up in the Property Information Packet which is in MLS and on our website at that particular auction’s webpage. Typically a 3% (of high bid amount) cooperative/referral fee is offered to the agent whose client purchases the property. To be eligible, fill out our Broker Registration Form and attend the auction with your Buyer. Broker registration forms are available online via the auction’s webpage or by requesting one from our office.

“I have personally utilized the Co-Op Program. This has provided my firm the ability to offer this accelerated marketing method to our clients. The McCurdy group is professional and dedicated and I would certainly recommend them.”
Bud & Sara Cortner - Keller Williams Hometown Partners Inc.
"We have done several transactions with McCurdy Auction Service and find them to be very fair and easy to work with. We have done the Co-Op Program and found it to be a great resource for our clients. We recently registered one of our investors for an auction and received a referral fee from the purchases the investor made. What a tremendous Win-Win for all. Our investor was pleased with the way the McCurdy staff took care of him and we have a client that thinks we are the best for sending him to one of their auctions.
We have done Co-ops with McCurdy on their listings and had them do auctions on some of our listings and can not say enough good about them. Our clients have been totally pleased and that is always our goal. What a great organization to work with."
Don Hamm - Crown III Realty
"My buyers were able to close in less than 12 hours after the auction on a cash deal. What they really enjoyed the most about the auction process is that when you win the final bid, that's the sales price. You know it's accepted right then and there. There's no waiting for the negotiation process. When the hammer drops, the hammer drops."
Chonci Weber Lekawa - RE/MAX Solutions
“Megan - Great Day for the Auction! KUDOS to You, Braden & the McCurdy Associates for you all your efforts on marketing, working so well with my sellers by taking the time to listen to everything this house had to offer & then promoting it to attract the Buyer at the Auction today!! McCurdy & RE/MAX make a GREAT TEAM. Thank You! Can't wait to Co-Op with you again!!!”
Sophia Norlin - Plaza Real Estate Inc.
"I had a great experience working with McCurdy Auction. My seller and I met with Braden McCurdy and discussed all of her options; it was not a pressure sell. After interacting with my seller, she determined that going to auction would be a positive decision. As the co-op agent, I was treated very well and my seller was thrilled that her house sold! If the situation arises, I will definitely look at auctioning as an option.!"
Mary Lynn Priest, ABR, CRS - Plaza Real Estate, Inc.
“I’ve worked with McCurdy Auction Service on several occasions. The last occasion was an impressive house that we had in the Orchard at Shadybrook. This property was on the market for 9 months with no offers. I took advantage of McCurdy Auction’s Realtor Co-Op Program and our property was sold for $440,000 Cash in 30 days. I would recommend them to anyone.”
Michelle Grant - Keller Williams Hometown Partners, Inc.
“I first used McCurdy Auction Service’s Co-Op Program on a listing I had that was on the market for several months. The auction produced a $320,000 cash and as-is offer that was 95% of asking price. On a second occasion I had a home that the auction produced an offer of $174,000 which was 99% of asking price. I would recommend McCurdy Auction Service to any Realtor or Seller looking to sell a property in the least amount of time, for the most money, with the least amount of hassle.”
