"I have limited experience in real estate. I bought my first house when I was 25 and just recently sold (12 years later) it with the help of Carol & Cut The Commission. I cannot say enough about Carol and this service. Carol made the process so easy. She explained everything, offered multiple sources for guidance & was always available for questions. I listed my house & had it under contract (for over asking) after about 3 days & 20+ showings. At my closing my attorney was going over the numbers and asked about the listing agent commission and if to my knowledge it was anything but the "standard" and I shared with him the commission statement that Carol had sent them the day before. He said "wow, your agent must really like you" because it really did make an impact. Having the lower commission really helped me capitalize on a not so high value neighborhood. Thank you so much, Carol! I won't say I couldn't have done it without you but I will say I couldn't have done it as successfully or with the profit margin I achieved without you."

THE BEST, THE BEST, THE BEST…it is the only way we can describe SellersListingService.com From the moment we signed up for the service, we knew we were in the hands of a knowledgeable, understanding, patient and very skillful individual. We signed up for the deluxe program. Everything was mapped out step by step, all necessary forms were provided. Individualized support was always available from posting our listing, through negotiations, until the day of our closing. What at times seemed like an overwhelming feat was simplified into an easy to follow marketing plan; and whenever the odd question arose or a consultation was needed we never doubted that the support and the guidance would be there.
Thank you, Carol for always being there for us, and just for being the BEST!

I have used cut the commission 4 times times! I buy houses renovate them over 2 years while I live there and then move on to the next project. This way I do not pay capital gains. Carol has been great always really helpful and attentive to questions and needs. This is very true even if she doesn't get the commission because a client comes in without a broker.
A. Goldsher, West Hartford
I had the most amazing experience with Sellers Listing Service! I couldn't be happier! My favorite people to work with are those who are knowledgeable and experienced, but most importantly they do what they say they're going to do and are responsive and provide great customer service. Carol York delivered on all of those attributes! I highly recommend her - you won't be disappointed.

Carol was incredibly helpful with our FSBO. All of our questions were answered so fast, she helped with the paperwork, and soothed our fears. We are even closing early. Thank you, Carol!
M & S St. Germain, New Britain
Carol York provided her expert knowledge to guide me through the process of selling my home. Whenever, I needed to get her advice and she was readily available and did all the necessary requirements to list my on MLS® as well as all the other online sites. I made selling my home my a smooth process while significantly reducing the costly commission fees. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase or sell property.
M. Borawski, Farmington
We've had a great experience and saved $$! Carol helped us every step of the way and eased my anxiety many many times!! I recommend Cut the Commission highly.
J. Norton, Beacon Falls
Throughout our lives, we have been involved with many realtors. Carol York from SellersListing Service stands way out in front of all the others. She is extremely personable, cares about her clients, is highly skilled in the real estate market, and calls you right back with the answers to any questions that you may have. I would recommend Carol to anyone who needs a real estate expert without paying the high cost of broker commissions. You won't be disappointed!
M. MacManes, Ashford
We listed our home with Carol at ‘ cut the commission ‘ and it was truly a great experience. Carol worked above and beyond to help us understand the documents and paperwork and always took our calls or contacted me quickly if I had concerns or questions , nothing was too much trouble for this lady ... We requested the ‘For sale‘ sign to be placed at the front of our property and it was done so in a very timely manner .. Great success too , We sold our home to the first buyer on the first day it was listed and saved a lot of money by going with this company , Can’t get much better results than that !! I would definitely recommend this company.
J & J Hubbard, Granby
We sold our house a year ago through what was then Cut The Commission and it was a great experience. Carol helped us with setting up and wording our listings and then reviewed the offer paperwork for us. She always got right back to us and was a pleasure to work with. If I were to sell again I would definitely do it this way.
H. Howard, East Haddam
Carol assisted me in selling my own home, she created the MLS® listing with my own photos, helped coordinate potential buyers, and communicated with buyers when I was on vacation. She also assisted me greatly in closing documents. Fantastic experience- thank you Carol!
Knowledgeable and exceptionally responsive. While I have been involved in the purchase and sale of a number of homes over the last 45 years and had a pretty good background, this is the first time trying to sell a house on my own. Carol came highly recommended by the owners of a company I work with. She was extremely knowledgeable all the way through the process - confirming what I needed to do for a successful sale, through the contract negotiation/sales agreement process, the home inspection and finally the closing. I was most impressed by how quickly she responded whenever I left a message.
She was never too busy to take my calls and provide whatever help I needed. I highly recommend her and would use her again in the future.
Thank you for your assistance in the sale of our home. Without your expertise we could not have done it in the same manner. I praise you for the way you were always there whenever i called with questions. I rarely got your voicemail, and when I did you were always prompt with your call back. You guided us through the process and everything fell into place. We so appreciate all your help.

"SOLD, The most beautiful word in the English language! The papers were signed yesterday and we moved out."
"We listed with an agent for one year which produced several showings but no offers. Our best decision was to go with For Sale By Owner Connection & Cut the Commission. Right away we noticed an increase in the number of showings, tapped a market of buyers who prefer not to use agents and retained total control regarding when we showed our home and to whom. Prospective buyers or their agents made appointments with us directly. We were always kept in the loop of discussions ... They provided a seller's package along with excellent support, encouragement and advice. There were no surprises. We highly recommend For Sale By Owner Connection & Cut The Commission.
Paul & Lori Rea, Formerly of Canton, Connecticut
Just a note to thank you for the great job you performed in listing my property so that I could cut the commission! I have so appreciated your working with me through the first listing of my home in Morris, and because of circumstances, was cut short. When I called you in late spring this year to relist, you were generous to keep to our original agreement, charging me a small stipend to relist.
Although my buyer had an agent i did have several opportunities to sell "by owner". I appreciated your company used my pictures and verbiage in the multiple listing service and other media, giving me a genuine role in the sale. Thank you, Carol, for having a company that helps with the high cost of selling a house.
It was a pleasure working with you from the outset to the closing.
-R. Seegers - Morris, CT
Carol gave us the support we needed to sell our house and we highly recommend her. Her seller's kit provided detailed information and she responded quickly to calls and emails when we had questions or needed additional advice. Carol was knowledgeable, honest, and generous with her time. We never felt that we were on our own in the FSBO process.
-J. Luddy - Simsbury, CT
Carol helped me sell 2 homes and has my highest respect. She has made herself available for phone calls as well as e-mails promptly. Carol is also a very intelligent agent and understands your needs.
-J. Grief - Chester, CT
Carol is a knowledgeable agent, patient and easy-going. She was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate recommending her. I plan on utilizing her services again in the future.
-J. Carr - Bloomfield, CT
Carol was amazingly professional and accessible. She was rich with knowledge and experience. This service is the way to go! This company is the one to choose!
-Sam Picard - Clinton, CT
I will highly recommend CutTheCommission.com and have so in the past to others listing properties. Carol has the integrity that is rarely found in the real estate industry. Her experience and composure is greatly appreciated.
-Brent Carnelli, Carnelli Builders, Carnelli Construction
Carol, Your services are the best! I really do feel like we're a team - you are so helpful! We got lucky finding you. Thank you again for all your efforts.
-L. Mancuso - Manchester, CT
Thanks for all your help-we figured that we saved close to $6,000 in realtor commissions by using FSBO Connection, and sold it for more than other homes in our area who were paying 5% to the realtors.
-Sue & Chris
We just want to thank you for your assistance in helping us sell our house. We loved showing our home and being able to explain all the wonderful things about it. However, we most importantly enjoyed all the money we saved in only paying one commission. In this market we were able to sell our home for less but walk away with more money in our pocket. Although I don't want to have a career in real estate, I would sell my house again in a minute.
-Maryann and George Francischelli
I have just closed on the sale of my antique home, having used Cut The Commission / For Sale By Owner Connection. I was amazed at the difference in the number of showings that I had in just a few months as compared to the meager activity that I had when I listed with two previous realtors … Best of all, prospective buyers came right to me, no intermediaries and no commission! I am so thankful for Cut The Commission and the wonderful services, guidance, and advertising they provided me. I will never feel again that I must be at the mercy of a realtor and would choose Cut The Commission for sure!
-Rachel - Lebanon, CT
I highly recommend using FSBO Connection. I sold 2 prior homes and purchased one home all through FSBO Connection, all with no agent commissions being paid. I am selling my current residence and have again chosen FSBO Connection. When I sold my first home, I received a great deal of traffic the first month using FSBO Connection but was not able to close the deal. An agent convinced me to list with her; unfortunately I did, traffic screeched to a halt, and I had almost no traffic for 3 months until I could get out of the contract. Once the contract was up, I went back on FSBO Connection, a high level of traffic resumed and I had the property sold weeks later. Why pay the high commissions? Use a trusted and reliable group of professionals. Use the original FSBO company in CT, the best value in town. I have using FSBO Connection for almost 20 years and recommend that you do too.

What to say? Carol made the experience of selling our house a positive pleasure. In three days from our first ad in a local paper and five days from the listing on MLS® we had three firm offers at our asking price, which was the price suggested to us by appraisers and real estate brokers.
But the pleasure came from dealing with Carol, who gave us a crash course in all the issues involved. She was a priceless and delightful resource on all our questions and a real pleasure to work with. Despite a long business career, I was pretty ignorant and inexperienced about real estate transactions. Now I feel like an expert (I'm not!).
I suppose most people sign up with "For Sale By Owner" in order to "Cut the Commission." That was certainly significant for us (saved us over $22,000), but not our main reason for looking into this. We had some control over the process and negotiations in selling this house which had been our family for forty years. The biggest surprise was our enjoyment in getting to know potential buyers, all of whom I enjoyed showing the house to. And I was able to tell them a lot more about the history of the house and answer their questions better than a real estate broker would have been able to do.
After a forty-year career in banking and finance on four continents, there are very few people I have met who were more pleasant to deal with and knowledgeable about their field than Carol York. I can't recommend her too highly.
-H. Clark Griswold
I just want to thank you again for all the help you gave us in selling our house. I was very pleased with the whole process and would definitely use your services again. If I know of anyone selling their home, I will recommend they call you.
Forgive me for being so late in letting you know what a great program you have. I actually had fun showing the house & met so many wonderful people. We had over 40 showings, and had 4 serious buyers in less than a week. As far as I'm concerned there is no other way to sell a house! In fact, I received a note from the woman whom I referred to you (I never met her, but she was given my name by my neighbor) and she was thrilled to have a deposit on her house within 24 hours of listing. Thank you again for your help, your knowledge and your professional attitude and assistance. You will always be part of my fond memories of Connecticut.
We are presently under contract. I wish I owned several of these units!! I've had 10 calls in the past 2 weeks, and am still getting them. Thanks for all your help.
To the Wonderful People at FSBO Connection: We have to thank you for the invaluable guidance and expertise you provided during the process of selling our home. We not only appreciate the high level of professionalism, your kindness and support has made things so much easier! Thank you!
-A & J Welch
Just a short note to let you all know how completely satisfied we were with your service. We couldn't believe the response we received from listing our house with you. We have already recommended you to several people and will continue to do so. Thanks again.
-D & B Cavna
I wanted to take the time to thank you for your help and assistance in the sale of my home. My only regret is that I did not advertise in For Sale By Owner Connection years ago! I went through countless real estate agents that did nothing for me except give me empty promises. The showings were at best minimal and I was always calling to find out what was going on as they never kept me informed. And for this kind of service I was forced to hand them 6% commission when it sold! When I heard about your organization, I immediately placed an ad. The phone never stopped ringing, I had several showings, and knew who I was dealing with. In a very short time, I was given a sizeable deposit and the rest is history, including the house. Thank you very much. I wish you folks all the best of luck. Your publication has made me and I'm sure a lot of folks very, very happy.
-R. McLaughlin, Jr.
Thank you for all your help with our recent home sale by owner. We received well over 75 telephone calls from the ad we placed in your publication and sold our home within two days of listing it. In addition to the fabulous results your service yielded, your customer service was excellent! You were available to me at every step of the process; I always felt comfortable calling you. I’ll be the first to admit that I was afraid to sell my home by myself, but thanks to you it couldn’t have been easier! If anyone ever tells you that they’re reluctant to sell their home by owner, have them call me; I can attest to how simple, and fun, the process really is!
Thank you for your support and encouragement. I appreciated advertising in the For Sale By Owner Connection, and always got a lot of calls each time it was published. I just closed last Friday, and received very close to the asking price. I must admit it was sure a nice feeling not to pay out that 6% commission! I saved over $9,000. Nice! Thanks again.
We closed on our condo today! I just wanted to tell you what a great service I think you run! We listed with you only 2 months, and with no additional advertising our condo sold. It was definitely worth it, and resulted in savings of several thousand dollars! I have passed your name and # on to several other friends who are selling, and I would not hesitate to recommend you again. Thanks!!
I would recommend CutTheCommission.com to anyone wanting to market their home themselves. I was extremely happy with the service I received and their marketing plan was more complete and brought quicker and better results than any I had used through a conventional realtor. Even with my rather unusual and higher priced property (over $1 million) I was getting calls from qualified buyers within a week. I can not recommend them highly enough.
Just wanted to let you know that it has been eight months since we moved into our home in Cromwell and we could not be happier. It all started with Cut The Commission and being able to sell our condo so quickly. Thank you again.
