Real Words from the Wise….

I strongly recommend Tod Franklin and DFWCityhomes’ real estate services. Tod is always available to provide advice, to answer questions and to support his customers all the way to a successful closing. His integrity is without reproach. The quality of the service provided is outstanding, including beautiful pictures and attractive description of the house. I will re-use Tod’s service for my next opportunity.

I loved working with Tod Franklin, he visited with us, explained his services, provided us the market survey and when we were ready he took care of all the details and had us on the market exactly as promised. We had heavy and steady traffic from the opening weekend and were able to make a great deal just as we’d hoped to do. His guidance and attention to detail were exactly what we needed as 1st time sellers. Thank you.

Love working with Tod, very professional- for someone like me in the mortgage business for over 30 years- I have seen my fair share of Realtor’s- Tod is one of the best I have worked with in the last decade- also he has a great program- full service without the full service price!
I highly recommend him.

We were extremely pleased with Tod. He did a great job with the pictures, pricing our house competitively and helping with our contract negotiations.

David and Kimberly Gibson - Arlington, Texas

Our experience in selling our home with Tod Franklin was great; in fact, it completely exceeded our expectations! My husband and I have been thoroughly pleased with his service and with DFW City Homes. Throughout our selling experience, Tod was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and he always had our best interests in mind. He was also very patient and thorough in his explanation of processes, and he ensured that we fully understood any information before signing (or making major decisions). Further, Tod was incredibly responsive and helpful whenever we had questions or needed additional clarification. We have him to thank for our house selling so quickly and for our sale going so smoothly. We would highly recommend Tod to those looking to sell their homes!

Garrett and Cassie Wagner - Plano, Texas

Tod is outstanding to work with! He helped us lease our old house and purchase our current one. The service he provides is a tremendous value for the price. He provided all the services promised, but also took plenty of extra time to help us out. As first time landlords, we were very green about how to go about things. He spent time giving us advice on how to structure our lease and even wrote it for us. As our buyer’s agent, Tod worked hard to find us the right house. We toured 25 or 30 houses over several days. His service was better than with the traditional agent we had used in the past. I’ve already recommended Tod to several friends.

Brian and Wendy Keffer - McKinney, Texas

Great experience and quick sale! By using this service, we were able to sell our home that wasn’t selling when using the traditional real estate agent listing services. Definitely recommend!

Stephanie Sherman - Dallas, Texas

Tod was great! The package that he provided was a value compared to the traditional listing. He is very knowledgeable about the industry both purchase and leasing. He is also has a good eye for photography and took great pictures of our house!! After two successful transactions I would have no problem referring him to any friend or family member.

Caleb Rydbeck - Frisco, Texas

We knew we were not making any profit from the sale of our house. We priced it to sell fast. So we looked for flat rate listing services, and we were very fortunate to find Tod Franklin from DFWCityhomes to list our house and we sold our house in less than 3 months. Tod is very professional,knowledgeable,responds very quick to your calls and concerns, infact, he picks up your calls very first time you call him. He walks you through the process very clearly and patiently. We are very extremely happy with his services. For the flat rate we paid him, his services exceeds more than an full service rate. My husband and I think, Tod deserves more money that the flat rate, because his is a full service, not the discounted service. Why pay more for other realtor for the full services, when you can get Tod’s excellent service for a flat fee. Tod is a great realtor, we would highly recommend him for our friends and families. If we were to sell or buy any other property in near future, we will definitely use Tod’s services. If you want to save money and sell your home fast, then please use Tod Franklin from DFWCityhomes.

Mahesh and Nethra Tangella - Plano, Texas

Over the years I have bought and sold many homes in support of my career moves. DFWCityhomes has the most creative and flexible programs we have encountered. The financial structure is very positive, especially in today’s real estate market. We highly recommend Tod and his team to those who want professional direction and support.

Rob and Pam Agne - Keller, Texas

Had a big problem to move a house over 400 miles away with issues and estate ones too. Tod Franklin helped us get this done in a very professional manner. Within 6 months the market spoke and the house IS SOLD !!!!!!!!!!!!!! DFWCityhomes has identified the holes and flaws in the traditional residential brokerage model and is having a glorious time exploiting them. Wish he was in my area now in Branson Mo. As a businessman and investor my opinion is that Tod is top notch. Highest regards and would use his service again.

Richard Carlson - Arlington, Texas

If you are a savvy homeowner or investor that likes to save money on real estate transactions, then this is the only way to go. For a very reasonable flat fee, Tod Franklin listed my house on the MLS complete with professional photos, a yard sign, lockbox and marketing material copy. In short, everything I needed to sell my home. I sold the home in 55 days during a buyers market and saved 3% by not paying the traditional listing agent commission. I happily paid the selling agent’s commission that brought my eventual buyer to me. Tod was always available to answer questions and send me leads via email. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.

Rhonda Norman - Dallas, Texas

We listed our condo for sale using the Full Listing Service package provided by DFWCityhomes. Realtor, Tod Franklin, was excellent to work with. He expertly came out, took multiple pictures, created an awesome ad/flier, and efficiently listed our condo on a variety of sites for us. Tod was easily accessible to answer questions or explain details throughout the process. Ultimately we ended up leasing our condo, but in the future, when we’re ready to buy or sell property in the Dallas area, we will call Tod Franklin at DFWCityhomes.

Elaine Laroa - Dallas, Texas

Tod was thorough, professional, and helped us accomplish our goal of selling our house in a very tough market. He was a tremendous resource in helping us price our home and was instrumental in helping us maximize our sales price when we were lucky enough to generate multiple offers. I highly recommend DFWCityhomes.COM!

Michael Pollak - Dallas, Texas

This is a great service that fit my needs. Tod was very responsive and willing to discuss any concerns that I had. The pictures and exposure to my listing were great. Tod handled the negotiations when needed along with giving me advice on how to counter the offers that came my way.

Stan Katz - Dallas, Texas

I was extremely happy with the services provided by DFWCityhomes when we sold our home. We received virtually all of the services provided by a full real estate service throughout the entire process and saved thousands of dollars in commissions. The entire selling process was very simple, we received all the assistance needed, and had accepted an offer within weeks of listing our home. We compared many different services before going with DFWCityhomes, and none of the others provided anywhere near the services and features for the price. Will absolutely use again next time we sell a home in the DFW area.

Eric - Fort Worth, Texas

The way homes are sold is changing. In this competitive buyer’s market, sellers no longer can afford to pay 6% commissions. Tod’s service is the home seller’s answer. With Tod, we have not sacrificed personal attention in the least bit. He has always been prompt in returning all of our calls and has not hastened to follow up with any of our questions or requests. If you are in the market for saving thousands of dollars and for personal attention, then Tod’s your guy.

John and Magdalena Wiertzema - Saginaw, Texas

DFWCityhomes provides exceptional service that goes beyond simply providing a listing service. From beginning to end of the sales process, Tod is always there to answer questions and tweak the listing to get buyers through the door. Last but not least, we saved over $8,000 by using DFWCityhomes! No doubt, I recommend DFWCityhomes to all my family and friends.

Will D. - Dallas, Texas

DFWCityhomes and Tod provided excellent service at a very reasonable cost. I have sold two other houses using discounted listing services and DFWCityhomes is by far the best. We can start from the very 1st email I sent to Tod. He responded immediately with a form to fill out regarding information on my house etc. Within 24 hours Tod had comparable analysis with a good idea on what I should be listing my house for. We then set-up an appointment and he came and took photos of our house. The very next day the house was listed. This was a Saturday evening and on Sunday morning I had request from two separate perspective buyers to look at the house. Throughout the listing period Tod keep me informed on perspective buyers etc. We had an offer within 11 days during a very slow market. Additionally, this was in August which is also a slower period. Tod assisted me in helping negotiate a price and gave some valuable advice that assisted me in determining counter offers etc.

Dan Wilson - Southlake, Texas

Our house had been on the market for over a year and listed with two different brokers. After listing with Todd, we had a buyer in less than two weeks. He handled all the negotiations like the professional he is and the closing ran very smoothly. He also helped us look for a house when we thought we were going to be relocating within the Metroplex and was great to work with. We have already recommended Todd to friends and will continue to do so. We will definitely use him again if we move back to Texas.

Tracey Larsen - Keller, Texas

My experience using DFWCityhomes to list our home in Lewisville was way above my expectations. Tod went above and beyond answering all my questions, spending time with me on the phone, and returning all my e-mail’s and voice mails in a timely matter. I have used a traditional realtor in the past to sell my home and after using DFWCityhomes listing service, I will never go back listing with a 3% Realtor. The cost savings is incredible; our home was listed on the MLS & looked like any other home on the market. I am always leery of recommending services/people to friends & family unless I am 100% confident they will get superb service. I have already recommended DFWCityhomes to a close friend and plan to keep recommending them to all my friends and family!

Julie Ayala - Lewisville, Texas

The flat listing service was extremely beneficial in the sale of our property. While we only had one real estate showing, the extra exposure on the various websites on the internet is what brought our buyer to us. We closed without paying any agent fees other than the flat fee to DFWCityhomes Service.

H. Leavell - Canton, Texas

Tod did a great job of helping us sell our home. I would use him again.

Gary Cowsert - Austin, Texas

I would definitely recommend DFWCityhomes to anyone wanting to sell their home. Its a great value and they have great customer service. DFWCityhomes saved me thousands of dollars and made listing my home an easy process.

Shawn Woodward - Benbrook, Texas

Tod was very professional, very knowlegable and always returned my calls in a timely fasion. I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.

Thad Zurawski - Chicago, Illinois

We were extremely impressed with Tod’s professionalism and attention to detail. He always responded quickly to our requests and was a joy to work with. We will ALWAYS use him in the future for buying and selling real estate and already refer to him whenever we have the chance!

Kirk & Susan Loveless - Rhome, Texas

As an owner/investor I have bought, sold and leased properties for over 20 years. The quality service that Tod provides at a fraction of the full service cost increases my bottom line and removes the frustration of doing it myself. He has become a trusted partner in my real estate transactions. I highly recommend Tod to anyone needing a real estate professional.

Andy & Shirley Boyd - Dallas, Texas

We really appreciate you getting this listed for us so soon! I am very happy to be working with a “real” person and not just a big flat fee business. Thanks!

Michael & Kim Daly - Wylie, Texas

Tod, is punctual, professional and hard working. His work in selling our house, is equal to or better than the work done by a traditional broker, who charges 3% to list a house.

Bob & Pat Joyce - Keller, Texas

Tod has been very professional on all 5 of our transactions. One purchase and 4 sales. Tod is efficient and is a good negotiator. On several deals Tod was able to keep the closing alive and get it done. I highly suggest you use Tod’s services. He is a PRO I have recommended Tod to several friends and other investors. Thank you.

Carl Richards - Carrollton, Texas

We loved the price and the service! For under $500, we had our house put on MLS and had many qualified renters come by to look at it. Within a couple of months we had a very qualified renter who signed a 14 month lease. This was after we actually turned one down! I would definitely use Tod’s services again…when we try to sell our house in a year or so. I would highly recommend Tod!

Sue Berk - Dallas, Texas

Tod created an eye-catching MLS listing and brochure. Additionally, he provided useful information about trends in the market. Thanks

John & Kelly Hemenway - Frisco, Texas

My wife and I moved to Texas a year ago. We knew we wanted to purchase a home, but were very unfamiliar with the best areas to move into. We wanted not only a great deal, but a great deal in a great area. Tod was very patient and helpful during the process of finding the perfect home. He had great market knowledge that really helped us feel confident in the purchase of our next home. In the end we found the perfect house at the perfect price. Tod went above and beyond in the final stages of our home purchase to make sure we were well taken care of during the final negotiations. We are looking forward to the purchase of our next home and taking advantage of Tod’s listing services in the future.

Luke & Stephanie Williams - Coppell, Texas

Now that our house is officially sold, let me say a heartfelt thank you for your service. We had the house on the market for two plus months with a full service broker and had nothing but problems. They wrote lousy copy, took terrible pics and worst of all, had no marketing plan. When we moved to your service, using our pics, copy and marketing, the house sold in a few days and with multiple offers. We would gladly refer ANYONE to your service.

Scott & Jo Tyree - Rowlett, Texas

Tod is very knowledgeble about the process of selling your home, he knows the North Texas Market, and he knows the techniques that buyers realtors use. He always has the sellers best interest in mind. The bottom line you can trust Tod to guide you through the sale of your home.

John & Kelly Hemenway - Frisco, Texas

Tom and I thank the Lord for his convictions, guidance and goodness to us during this time of marketing our home, selling it and purchasing a new one! He never ceases to amaze us… in both prosperous times and difficult trials. We thank him for your participation during this time and we are grateful to you as well. You really helped us to make “uncharted waters” for us a much smoother sailing. You have been a blessing and we turly appreciate you. Most gratefully and sincerely in Christ

Tom and Faith Craft - Murphy, Texas

We are very satisfied with DFWCityhomes. Tod’s great; very professional and quick to respond to any concerns we have.

Robert and Elizabeth Guest - Ennis, Texas

In this real estate market, my husband and I were struggling with the profit that we would not make on the sale of our home after paying real estate agent fees. We decided to list our home with Tod at DFWCityhomes after only a Google search for MLS listing services. I am so glad that we did! We had a contract on our home in 9 days to another family who was working without a realtor, saving us nearly $20,000. Tod was quick to get our home on the market, very knowledgeable and always accessible for questions and consultation. I have recommended him to several friends. I could not be more happy with the result.

Trevor and Lindsey Starnes - Dallas, Texas

Tod provided our family an invaluable service in helping to sell our home. He was professional, polite and efficient. The pictures of our home that went on the Internet were outstanding. Tod provided us great information and was an advocate for us during the actual selling of our home. Our house started showing immediately and sold in just under two months. Here is the kicker to all of this- we saved thousands of dollars by using Tod’s company instead of a traditional real estate agent! Thanks Tod for everything!

Tyler and Amy Anderson - Rockwall, Texas

Although there are many realtors out there offering flat fee listings I doubt there are any who could (or would) offer the level of service that Tod did during our extremely challenging transaction. Whether it was late night calls/emails or dealing with an incredibly difficult and unreasonable buyers agent I always felt like I got a level of service equal to a full service listing. In fact, having listed twice before with full service agents, I might even say Tod’s service was better than theirs. Thank you Tod, not sure we could have made it through closing without you.

Stuart and Connie Oertli - Keller, Texas

Tod is very knowledgeable and professional. My wife and I interviewed over 6 agents before chosing DFWCityhomes. Tod understood the challenges we were facing, due to foreclosures in the neighborhood and the current real estate market. We followed Tod’s advice and sold our home in less then 90 days – current DOM in our area was minimum 180!!! Tod’s help to us was invaluable. If you are looking for a knowledgable, professional, get the job done agent then Tod is your guy. He will walk with you every step of the way. Tod, was there to answer any questions and the process was very easy. I have seen offers like this, but the personal service that Tod provides is exceptional.

Kenny and Tanika Donnell - Cedar Hill, Texas

Tod sold my home in a horrible market. I got the Value listing, but I never felt that Tod wasn’t personally invested in helping me sell.

Robert Guest - Ennis, Texas

It was a great experience to work with Tod Franklin at DFWCityhomes to sell our horse property. We had worked with a ‘normal’ real estate agency for 6 months We only had 4 showings and little interest in our property. Every month we got the standard line of ‘lower the price 10%. We enlisted Tod’s Services and had many showings and a lot of interest at our original asking price. Negotitated a contract at 5% below our listing price and old our home in 5 months.

Jim Rieck - Palmer, Texas

It was pleasure having Tod Franklin as my agent. His professional advice made the whole process smooth. His strategy enabled me to sell my house in less than two days. His pictures made my house presented in the best possible light. I am a happy lady.

TJ Bay - Grapevine, Texas

I would highly recommend Tod! He did a fantastic job of explaining all the contracts and procedures to both us (the sellers) and to the tenants we had occupying the property. Tod took great pictures which attracted numerous buyers. We had our first offer in a couple days! Tod then helped us tremendously through the negotiation process. We ended up making about $10,000 more than we originally anticipated. Tod followed through till the end with all the hiccups along the way. Thanks Tod for a job well done – we will definitely call you the next time we are ready to buy or sell another property!

Bob and Brett Morell - Dallas, Texas

We have sold several homes with different agents over the years but Tod Franklin is by far the best agent we have ever hired. He guided us every step of the way through the sale of our home, which is a very difficult process for a seller. He arrived at our house with over 20 comparable homes within a one mile radius to help us arrive at the right price. He also brought a professional photographers camera and took dozens of pictures of our house, inside and out, to be used on the web. In 24 hours our house was on so many websites it was very easy for prospective buyers to find our home. We had 27 showings in that week with multiple offers but in the end the first couple that looked at the house gave us a full price offer on the second day of the sale. Also, Tod’s use of technology really makes the process easy, from the centralized showing service to the electronic signing of documents he makes it a smooth and easy process. One of the scariest things for a seller to go through is the closing but Tod kept us informed of what to expect and do right up until the closing. If you are looking for a top notch agent, Tod Franklin is your answer.

Tom and Carol Jensby - Hurst, Texas

The value listing truly was a great value for me. Tod is prompt, easy to reach via phone or email, and professional. He offered some creative ideas to motivate a slow-moving buyer/buyer’s agent which showed cunning and knowledge that I didn’t expect. His advice in all multiple instances was right-on and clearly communicated. I recommend his services to anyone. And I recommend the value listing service for anyone who would like to be a little more involved in the selling process.

James Slack - Dallas, Texas

Thanks Tod for all your help on our recent real estate transactions. Tod helped us sell a property, rent a property, and purchase a new home. We got 10x the service and expertise from Tod than we had from other full commission realtors in the past. Tod will guide you through the process at whatever pace you are comfortable with. We will continue to use Tod for all of our real estate transactions going forward.

Brian Rudloff - Dallas, Texas

Tod Franklin was an excellent landlord. Had I not moved out of the area, I would rent from him again. He was quick with repairs and fair with pricing.

Rachel Molander - Dallas, Texas

Tod was the best Realtor we’ve ever worked with and therefor enabled us to have the best ‘home-selling’ experience ever. He was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, straight forward and honest and never pushed us in a direction we were not comfortable with. Tod spent hours taking incredible photos that presented our property in the best possible way and in turn resulted in a multitude of showings and multiple offers. During the more tense moments of negotiation Tod was constantly level headed, always negotiating to our benefit and kept communication as smooth and peaceful as possible. The council we received assisted us in making good decisions that greatly benefited our family and we will not hesitate to use his services again when we are able to or to recommend others to do the same.

Tiffany Rodriguez - Fate, Texas

Tod was amazing! We couldn’t have been happier with the process. Tod’s professionalism, wisdom, experience were invaluable tools for us – and the amount of work he did for such a reasonable price is just unheard of in todays real estate market. He was a refreshing and affordable alternative to the traditional realtor. If you want to waste money on a realtor who will do less…then look elsewhere…but if you want a top notch realtor who is undoubtedly the best bang for your buck…Tod is your man!

Reed Hogan - Dallas, Texas

I was dreading the experience of selling my Plano, Texas condo but Tod minimized the stress. When I let him know I was ready to put my condo on the market, he was out taking pictures the next day. The pictures he took of my condo were very professional. When I had questions, Tod was willing and able to answer them. I’m a planner so I did a lot of \”what ifs\” and he didn’t lose patience with me. I’ve heard it said that selling a home is one of the most difficult experiences in life and Tod certainly made the experience easier. In fact, we shared some laughs. You also can’t beat his prices. Thank you again, Tod!

Carol L. Miller - Plano, Texas

We were extremely impressed with Tod’s professionalism and attention to detail. He always responded quickly to our requests and was a joy to work with. We will ALWAYS use him in the future for buying and selling real estate and already refer to him whenever we have the chance!

Kirk and Susan Loveless - Rhome, Texas

Tod Franklin was a pleasure to work with! After unsuccessfully listing our house with a traditional service, Tod was able to get it under contract and sold in a little over a month. He went above and beyond in his service to us- always explaining things and offering valuable insight. We couldn’t be happier with the service offered to us by Tod. We will definitely use Tod Franklin at DFWCityhomes again.

Kevin and Melissa Kemp - Fate, Texas
Our efforts add volume and stability to our business and a substantial savings that can be put in the pockets of our clients or passed as an incentive to close a deal. We are fully committed to serving our clients professionally and ethically and eliminate many of the conflicts of interest residing in the traditional 6% Broker model. We are real estate professional’s that take pride in the high quality of our service and the results of our highly valued, high trust relationships. For that effort, we have been rewarded with many repeat and referral clients. Extraordinary competence and experience is accumulated from our business model. Coupled with honesty and integrity attained by minimizing conflicts of interest is a highly differentiating factor in our success. From agents representing the other side in our transactions, regretfully we find many with far less experience and questionable adherence to these values. We achieve high trust relationships with our clients and serve their interests first before our own and can survive and flourish by doing so. We are very proud of our way of conduct and strongly support the code of ethics of the National Association of Realtors and uphold the duty it instills in us to our clients and the public.
