We had a great experience with OKBYOWNER in the sale of our home. It was quick and easy to get our home listed on the MLS and our house sold because it was listed on the MLS. There are no hidden fees whatsoever and any changes. I needed to make to our listing were done promptly. I would recommend using them. They saved us thousands in allowing us to list our home ourselves.
After listing with another realtor for several months, my husband & I decided to list our home FSBO. We found out about OKBYOWNER & were excited to have their help with keeping our property listed in the MLS system for a small flat fee. In today's market, one has to have a strong online presence in order to get noticed. OKBYOWNER worked quickly to have all of our property's photos & details uploaded. Since our home was already vacant, it was very helpful to have them install a lockbox on the door, which alerted us via email of all showings. We were able to sell our home quickly & at our original sales price, with a very small commission for the buyer's rep. Overall, we were very pleased with the service we received from OKBYOWNER, & we will definitely refer them to our family & friends.
We had tried to sell our home "for sale by owner" for 3 months but were not getting the publicity that we needed. We received some information about okbyowner telling us how we could list our home on the MLS system for a low flat rate and still be able to sell our home ourselves. We decided that this was the route that we needed to take if we wanted to get our home sold. We were able to sell our home within 45 days. We saved over $4,500 just by using this service. I know I will recommend anyone who is thinking about selling their home to Carri first. The amount of money that you can save by selling your home with this service is incredible! Thank you Carri for all of your help!!!

I wanted to share my story with you so that others faced with our circumstances would have a reference to help them in make a decision on listing their house.
We initially started with the free version of okbyowner and using iPhone pictures. Within a week and a half we had 600 or so looks and one couple schedule an appointment to come and see. We then decided to give the MLS version a try and also had some better pictures taken. The difference was amazing. We were getting so many more responses, actual buyers interested in seeing the house, that I decided to hold an open house. The next evening we were under contract.
In my opinion, the difference between getting people to view your house online
and getting serious buyers wanting to come to and tour your house is upgrading to the MLS version. To me it was money well spent.
Excellent service!!! I sold my house faster than those that had realtors and saved $7000Josh Petree (Bixby)
I first used okbyowner.com back in 2009 when I was selling my primary residence. They set me up with everything I needed to sell my house and put my listing on the MLS at minimal cost. My house was shown over ten times in the first two weeks and I had a contract on the house after only 17 days! Okbyowner.com saved me over $5000 on commission fees on the sale of my house! Since then, I've bought and sold five more investment properties using okbyowner.com and have saved over $15,000 in commission fees. I continue to use okbyowner.com for all of my seller needs, as most buyers use the MLS almost exclusively to find their homes. Thanks okbyowner.com for your excellent service and for saving me thousands of dollars!Brad (Owasso)
I placed an ad on OKByOwner with the hopes of not paying a realtor commission. After placing our free ad I received a phone call and found out that we could list our home on the MLS, which is absolutely necessary in my opinion for exposure in this buyer's market. For a small fee of only $289 our house was placed on the MLS and the realtor/transaction broker that posted our MLS listing was professional and easy to reach when I had questions. She listed our home, we were still able to do For Sale By Owner, and then she helped us in purchasing our new home. Our experience with OKByOwner led us to sell our home and we gained a great realtor for all our future needs whom we can trust. Thank you!Sarah Thummel
We had our home up FSBO for five weeks without much traffic and no offers. Stacy, my wife heard about OKByOwner and I was skeptical at first but talked to them and signed up that day. The next weekend we had an open house and received two offers, one directly related to the MLS listing. They did what they said they would, what more can you ask for.Jonathan Johnsen (Bixby)
I was actually referred to OKByOwner by another Realtor. After I faxed the paperwork and had a call to show my home within three hours. The house was listed on a Wednesday, and I had a fully executed contract the following Sunday. It was fast, simple, and by having it listed on the MLS I saved thousands of dollars which I put toward my next home. I have referred several friends that are looking to sell their house, and I will continue to recommend her to more.Philip A Richmond (Tulsa)
I had worked for about 3 months getting my house prepared and ready to sell. Putting in new carpet, painting walls, clearing out closets and clutter, etc, etc. I told my husband that I felt we should get the "commission" for all our hard work, and so we should try to sell our house w/out a Realtor. He thought I was crazy, but decided to give me the spring to sell the house, and we would hire a Realtor if it didn't sale by the beginning of summer. So March 1st, I bought a "for sale, by owner" sign, and put it in the front yard. I also advertised on Craig’s list, and on the free listing on the OKByOwner web site. For an entire month, I got no response at all. I decided maybe it was time to pay the $349 dollars, and list it on MLS, through the OKByOwner web site. I got a call within an hour of it being listed, with a Realtor wanting to show the house. The next day I received another call from a Realtor who wanted to show the house the next day. That buyer ended up making an offer, and we sold our house that weekend!!! So, we sold our house in 3 days of it being on MLS. Everything was done either over the phone or on the computer. It was a smooth process, and if I ever have to sell a house again, I would definitely use OKByOwner again! I would recommend to anyone they should at least try to sell their house on their own, we saved ourselves about $8,000 dollars.Amy G. (Owasso)
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the Oklahoma By Owner service! Our home was under contract within 60 days of putting it on your web site.
The buyers were from out of state and would never have seen the house had it not been for this medium. If you're selling real estate by owner, this is a great way to increase exposure!?Gerald Messner
We listed our home on okbyowner.com on Tuesday and received a call the very next morning by a person that had seen our ad. That evening we showed the house and within 2 hours had a verbal contract. The real deal was signed the next day.
I had heard stories about selling quick but this was amazing to us. Thank you Terry for your help and your way of selling homes. It sure beat paying an agent thousands of $$$ to do something as easy as this has been.A Wilkinson
We closed the deal on the sale of 13246 S. Maple Street on Thursday. Please remove the listing from the website.
Ok by Owner is a great website since we had a contract on the house just 24 hours after it was posted on the site. Thanks for the help. Do you have any use for the signs?Michael R. Abernathie
We love our new house in Norman and enjoying a new grandbaby. What a great way to sell a house! Everything was professional from the "For Sale" sign to the web site.
It saved us real estate fees and sold in one week. Not only was it easy, it was a fun experience. If we can do it, anybody can!Susie and Tim Brown
We have sold our home. Thank you and your staff for all of your help, and our best wishes for your company and its future.
We sold our home due to your listing and greatly appreciate everything.Roger and Kathy Howell
It's Official! We sold the house and closed on Monday.
