On the due date of her second child and with a toddler at home, Christina Strait received her broker’s license in the State of Missouri and opened Strait Realty. Bob and Christina Strait shared a dream of changing the way sellers paid out commissions with a more affordable commission rate. Initially offering a flat rate for commissions, Strait Realty eventually evolved into a 4% commission rate.
However, Christina has always known that the more affordable commission rate shouldn’t be the only benefit for her clients. She also knew that she had to deliver on the overall excellent experience for both her buyers and sellers. This attention to detail, PLUS the savings she delivers for her clients, helped Christina grow her business by referrals and repeat clients. In 2006, her husband received his salespersons license and helped her grow. In 2015, when their children were old enough and required less attention, Christina and Bob decided to take a risk by taking all of their savings and putting it into marketing on the radio. They both were convinced that if more people knew there was an affordable option to selling their home without sacrificing service, then why wouldn’t they call?
Why Pay More Than 4?
Their hunch proved to be right! They immediately grew when the word got out. Since then, Christina has hired an A+ team, helping to ensure her clients needs were being met ethically and professionally. Strait Realty is embarking on a new plan of expansion by moving to neighboring markets. Strait Realty is brokered in the States of Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas with more states on the near horizon. Christina still believes that everyone can benefit from what Strait Realty offers. After all, Why Pay More Than 4?
