Our 2-person listing team closed 150+ deals last year alone! Don't Pay 6% to Just Any Broker or Realtor® to Sell Your Property!
Why mess with the rest when you can get the best for 1%?
We offer a better, more complete real estate service at a lower rate than what our competition can. You've been trained really well by Realtors® to accept & pay 6%, but, where did that number come from? Back when the 6% sales model was developed in the 1960s there was no MLS online search, eSignature, Facebook Marketing or even fax machines. The average cost of real estate back then was $20,000! Today, Central Ohio & Columbus rank as the #2 hottest housing market in the country with homes selling over $220,000 on average! Homes are selling faster than ever dnd todays home Buyer — not the Realtors® — control the buying process more than ever before. The fact is, we aren't a "cheap service" — if you pay a listing agent more than 1% you're simply paying too much!
We've sold thousands of local properties, we rank inside the top half of 1% of all Realtors® nationwide, we are members of the Columbus Board of Realtors® $1 Million Dollar Club, $5 Million Dollar Club, $10 Million Dollar Club and $25 Million Dollar Club as well as a member of the State of Ohio Pinnacle of Success Awards, the highest honor you can reach as a member of the Ohio Association of Realtors®, all because of a simple reason: what we do works. Stop giving your equity away in fees at the closing table — save thousands of dollars in commissions when you Sell For 1 Percent! What would you do with an extra few thousand dollars in your pocket?Contact Us to Learn More I'm Ready — Let's List!

Sell for 1% — frequently asked questions answered!
When you offer a new way, an alternative to the traditional way of doing things, it raises lots of questions. We've answered some of the toughest questions we hear below:
Established in 1998, The Barlow Group developed a repeatable sales process with proven marketing strategies without any of the overhead you pay for at a traditional brick and mortar brokerage…
We are a family run independent brokerage - we don't split our commissions with big brokers, office managers or regional bosses;
We're super efficient - with over 3,000 homes sold to prove it;
We understand digital marketing - you'll be everywhere 2018's Buyer is looking;
We don't have big offices filled with phones, faxes, fridges, candies, desks, toasters, microwaves, filtered water and no large office rent payment — allowing us to pass these savings to you!
How are we able to have great Realtors® give great service when we charge so little? Our typical day consists of waking up and selling homes. That's it. Thanks to iHome Realtors® technology and the popularity of the list for 1% program, we can fully focus on selling homes and taking care of our customers instead of spending our time looking for new ones.While the average Realtor® closed just 4 deals all year in 2017, our team averaged over 12.5 closings every month.
Don't I have to add a lot of additional options onto my basic service to get the same service offered by traditional Realtors®? No! Actually we do everything you'd expect, and more:
1. We market your property across all major listing websites and the MLS;
2. We give you a dedicated Realtor right through closing with all the advice and assistance you'd expect;
3. Our partners and technology allows you to manage your listing and view all showings/feedback online 24/7;
4. Professional photographs, secure lockbox and real estate signage all built into the 1% commission.
All of our Realtors are fully qualified, full-time professionals with an average of over 10 years experience.Being experienced, agile and efficient Realtors® are keys to making the 1% business model work: we don't waste time on things that don't sell real estate.
Do we have to pay with the possibility of our property not selling? No not really. You can pay the $288 listing fee upfront at the time you list, but even if your home doesn't sell during the listing contract, we'll still continue to list the property until sold at no extra fee.If you choose to take it off the market and later re-list, we'll honor the original fee and re-list at no additional charge.
Why would iHome Realtors work to get us the best price when they only charge a low commission? Positive reviews can be more valuable to a Realtor® than a commission in the long run. And getting the best price leads to the best reviews. And getting the best reviews leads to getting the best customers. So it's in our best interest to get you the best price while delivering a great service all at a low cost that no one else can touch!Referrals and repeat customers is the lifeblood of our 1% business model — please share this page with anyone thinking og buying or selling real estate.
