NetStarHomes looks to disrupt the Bay Area brokerage community

Brokerage avoids listing homes on MLS
  • Home buyers and sellers are taking a more self-service approach.
  • Brokerage only has three agents.
  • Watkins thinks brokerages charge consumers for a number of unnecessary services.

Greg Watkins thinks real estate agents today don’t do enough for consumers and that the traditional brokerage model needs to be disrupted.

Watkins is the founder of NetStarHomes, a Contra Costa County-based, three-agent brokerage that is working for sub-3 percent commissions.
