Frequently Asked Questions:
Who is Douglas Day?
A: Keith and Kim Cotter are the sole owners of Douglas Day
Property Group. When discussing names for the new brokerage, we wanted
something that reminded us what we have at stake with this company and
what we want to create for it moving forward. Our greatest measure of
success will be to have any of our children take over in the company when
they are done with their education. From there we took the middle names of
our twins, Cruz Douglas and Chloe Day. And from there a company was formed
both in name and model. Our kids names are on this letterhead. We
make decisions daily to make them proud of the company that will someday
We want to look at a house we drove past, is it better to just go through
the listing agent?
A: Whenever you are considering making an investment as large as
a property purchase, you should use anything at your resource to get the
best deal, and to avoid the most mistakes. It costs you nothing to use
Douglas Day Property Group, as your buyer’s agent. Nothing! We
charge no admin fees, no buyers fees, no form fees, etc. Also, it
costs the seller of that house nothing additional for you to use your
agent versus the listing agent. We get a fee from the listing agent
for helping them sell a home. Wouldn’t you rather have someone
working on your side? The seller does….
What will you charge to list my home?
A: Commission fees can vary based on if you have a residential
home, commercial property , or vacant land. What I can promise is we
are very competitive, and we do NOT charge any admin fees, or additional
fees on top of our commission. Call us for an interview, and we can
give you a net sheet of any expenses expected when selling your home
including our fee. Everything with our company will be up front and
transparent from the very beginning so there are no surprises at the
I seen a For Sale By Owner sign on a house that I would like to see, does
that mean I can’t use an agent to represent me?
A: Many times FSBO sellers will agree to pay an agent a fee if
they bring them a buyer. It can never hurt to have someone looking
out for you and your investment when it comes to real estate. And it never
ever hurts to ask!
Since you are not a franchise, will my property get the exposure it would
if I went with a national franchise firm in town?
A: Think about it this way, would you buy a house purely based
on what color sign it had out front? Of course not! We are a member
of the same boards as the local franchised brokerages. Your listings with
us will have full MLS exposure, upgraded Realtor.com exposure,
and many additional websites, including our competitors websites. The only
difference is we don’t have to pay a franchise fee, so we can keep our
Q: I heard you are starting a new “Giving Back To the
Community” program, how does that work?
A: Starting in March 2014, we will be taking 10% of all sales
commissions DDPG earns, and donating it back to our local community
projects. We wanted to start this program, because we do feel the
community has been so supportive of our new business. We also have grown
up in this community, taken roots in this community, and are raising our
children in this community, and we want them to realize how important it
is to give back as well. So every listing you bring us, or house we help
you buy as an agent, 10% of the commission we earn from that sale will go
to one of the 25+ local organizations in need in Isabella County. The best
part, you as our client will choose which of those organizations benefit.
