True, real life testimonials
I just wanted to thank you for all your help and knowledge during the selling process of my home. In the past I’ve used many conventional realtors, and have had many bad experiences with most (All) of them. For the most part they really don’t listen to you. All they want is to sell the house, get their commission, and be on their way. They will talk the seller down in price at every opportunity just to get their commission, without any regard to the seller’s interests. Jeff has been very professional and helpful. He has always returned my emails in a very prompt manner, and has gone beyond the call of duty. His knowledge of the real estate market and willingness to answer my questions was a great help.
Sendil, Ann Arbor
At first I was afraid that the “conventional” realtors wouldn’t show my home if I used a Flat fee listing, but I found out this wasn’t the case at all. In one week I had 6 home showings from realtors.
I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is serious about selling their home.

I would recommend Jeff for your real estate needs. He was there to answer our questions, either with an email or just a phone call away. He was very helpful with selling strategy, and was right there to help when the buyer had tough questions. Jeff assisted with the closing paperwork, from beginning to end. A proven system that works with little effort. Kirk and Dorothy Barrick, Lake Orion 7/15/12
I would highly recommend the Flat Fee service provided by Jeff Kermath of Kermath Realty. The service and options were clearly stated on Jeff's website and all transactions were handled in a professional manner. The follow-up from Jeff helped us stay on track from initial offer thru closing." Mark Luoma, Dexter, MI 6/12
Jeff Kermath’s service is highly effective and successful; we absolutely recommend it. He saved us $19,800 in commission! It was a long, tough sell in a tight, high-end market. Dealing with a difficult buyers’ agent, Jeff promptly and consistently assisted us throughout negotiations gone awry. He went above and beyond for us. His expertise, patience and support are truly appreciated.

7.6.12 The Flat Fee MLS listing and services package offered by Jeff Kermath is the greatest thing since the internet. It saved me more than $12,000, and I sold my house by using the Kermath package within two days. And the price was considerably over my list price. I bought his Deluxe MLS package which includes a 12-mont MLS listing, 25 photos and an automatic feed to Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, etc. I had more than 50 inquiries and a hundred people at my first and only open house. The access to MLS is key – it's a cheap entry to the real estate brokers' "club". Kermath's package also includes a sign, a lockbox and access to contracts, forms and helpful articles. And most priceless of all, Jeff is very responsive in providing expert advice in answering any newbie questions about how to sell your house without a listing broker.

7.4.12 Since our house was off the beaten path, we knew we couldn't just put up a 'For Sale' sign and wait for the offers to come pouring in. Using this service allowed us to get our listing out there for more people to see than we otherwise could have. Plus, we saved about $8,000 in commissions! Tom Carney, Alpena
6.22.12 My experience with using AmeriSell Realty LLC and Jeff Kermath for listing my home was exceptional.
The upfront process was simple with pre-defined forms that just needed to be completed and submitted electronically.
The most important thing, was that Jeff communicated quickly and effectively, offering suggestions and
advising of status.
In my case, I received about 15 requests for a showing and accepted a full price offer within 24 hours, which closed 5 weeks later.
I would highly recommend Kermath Realty LLC and Jeff Kermath.
Take care Jeff
Terry Sanocki, Clarkston, MI
As I said in our telephone conversation just now, our closing went uneventfully. Having you list our home was the best thing we could have done. We had many showings, three serious buyers and two offers, one of which we accepted. During the process, you spent a great deal of time negotiating with an extremely difficult Buyer's Agent. For that, alone, we were very grateful. My husband and I ended up with a very good price, and I would recommend your service to our friends. Having you list our home on the MLS saved us $20,000 in commission fees, money which we can now invest in our next home. We especially appreciated the time you took to come out to our home and take photos, in as much as we are technologically challenged. Thanks again for a relatively stress-free selling experience.
Bruno & Nancy Zanlungo, Howell, MI
Just a note that Judy and I were very pleased with your service in the selling of our house. We never felt that we did not have a veteran Real Estate professional in our corner. When we have been asked a dozen times "How did yo sell your House so fast?'. We refer them to Amerisell and Mr. Jeff Kermath.
If not Thank You for your service and if we ever sell our Summer home here on the shores of Potagannissing Bay, mile north of Lake Huron in the St. Mary's river system, looking at St. Joseph's Island Canada, we will be sure to call you. But it we be a while!

5.8.12 Hey Jeff.
We closed over a week ago and I've been meaning to email you and thank you for your product. People still can't believe that we closed in 4 weeks without paying full commission. I've recommended your product to many of my friends. Two of them will be signing up shortly.
Thanks for all your help.
Jim Jarvis, Rockford, MI
4.22.11 $42,000.00! Let me say that again people!!!
We saved $42,000.00 with Jeff's "list it and you keep my commission system."
His system is the new way of the world, and a system that everyone should be using when it comes to selling their own real estate.
WHY you ask?
I'll tell you! A real estate agent that we work closely with wanted to list this property for $ 1,000,000.00. We thought we could get much more for it.
We had Jeff list the property instead. In the end we sold it for $1,400,000.00. We pocketed $400,000 more than what our other agent would have gotten for us plus the commission that we would have lost in the process.
Furthermore, not only did we not have to give up total control to a real estate agent, but the whole process was fun and it was easy. I'm looking forward to doing another.
Thanks a million Jeff, no Thanks $400,000.00 in my pocket plus your commission!
You’re the best!
Kevin Bloomfield Hills
3.6.12 The Flat Fee MLS Listing Service is definitely the way to go. The listing generated a lot of traffic, our home sold quickly and we saved about $10K in realtor fees! And Jeff was always just a phone call away if we had any questions.
Cher – South Lyon MI
3.1.11 Thank you Jeff. Yes, Flat fee is the way to go. Too bad buyers can't see they could get a deal without using an agent. But at least it saved us some cash, about $11,800 worth!
I will refer others.

2/12 To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to recommend Amerisell Realty and local Agent Jeff Kermath for your next real estate adventure. We literally saved thousands of dollars by using Amerisell Realty. This relatively new form of selling real estate should, in my opinion, be the next revolution in Real Estate. All you need to do if you are selling your property is pay a small one time fee up front. This fee will generate a MLS listing of your property via the internet, which is the way of the future in real estate transactions. A Seller no longer has to pay out thousands of dollars to traditional Real Estate Companies for doing virtually nothing for their clients. Do the math and you will agree with me. I highly recommend Amerisell Realty and Mr. Jeff Kermath for your Real Estate needs.
11.11 Thank you Jeff for the ease of your money saving MLS program! Our realtor fees were cut in half and every new homeowner knows how important every penny is! The minor extra leg work on our part was worth the extra almost $6000! Can't thank you enough for all of your help and excellent customer service! Kudos!
Melissa Schmidt, Waterford, MI
11.11 We would like to thank you for selling our home for a fantastic price. Your fee is unbelievable. Your program works and saved us Thousands of dollars. Everything went smooth during the whole process. I would recommend you to anyone.
Greg Weglowski, Canton, MI
I have been working with Jeff for many years. He is very professional and the thing I like best is that he responds to any questions or concerns you have promptly. Before switching over to Jeff I had used another listing service and actually got held up at closing of a house I was selling because we needed signed paperwork from them and no one could reach them. Needless to say I was looking for top notch customer service and that is what Jeff has given me over the years. Don’t hesitate to use his services whether it is your first transaction or your 50th! If you are feeling overwhelmed or hesitant about selling your home on your own Jeff will be there every step of the way to make the process painless and easy. I will definitely be listing with Jeff again!
Jewel, Triple J. Properties~ September, 2011
Jeff made the process very easy.
One second the property was listed then it was sold. It happened that fast. The same day the property was listed we had several calls come in to see the property. The next day it sold.
In the end, I saved $13,000 in real estate commissions that would have otherwise went in a selling agent’s pocket had s/he of listed the property.
Get it together people and get on this program it works!
Kevin, Farmington Hills, MI 7.11
We were reluctant about not having a Realtor on the scene however Jeff came through whenever we had any concerns. He took the time to answer all of our questions throughout the entire process in a timely manner. The closing statement was presented to us twenty four hours before closing and as soon as Jeff received it he noticed several problems. An hour later we received a revised statement for$12,000 more along with an apology from the title company for the mistake. We would definitely use him again. We will also recommend Jeff to anyone we know who is selling a house.
Geoff and Cathy, Kalamazoo 7.11
Good timing, We closed on Monday. Thanks to your program and the fact that our buyer did not use an agent we were able to save $18,000. I would use your program again in a minute, and I have recommended it to others many times.
Kurt & Pam Skurjune, Commerce Township 1.11.
Your service is amazing!
In this bad economy I expected to have my home on the market for a while.
Never did I imagine that my 7.27.10 listing would bring me 3 offers in August!
The offer I accepted was $10k below my asking price, but since my buyer did not have an agent, I saved $13500 in commission.
My only cost was the original flat fee listing price of $799.
Thank you for walking me through the steps of preparing my purchase agreement and helping me to find a title company to close the sale.
I hope you have a wonderful 2011!
- Dear Jeff,
"Being listed on the mls is the best way to sell your house, it's what buyers agents use when they have a client wanting to buy. Jeff runs a great affordable mls listing service which generates viewings and gets your house sold and saving you 3% at the same time. We are really happy that we used it, Thanks Jeff."
Mervyn Elliot, Battle Creek
Thanks again! Here is our testimony:
"Using the flat-fee brokerage method through AmeriSell turned out to be a good match and resulted in selling our home in the difficult West Michigan housing market. After we elected to go "full service" with Jeff and our active participation, we were able to perform most of the duties that a typical real estate agent would do, which opened up the way to saving money on commission fees.
Randy & Kathy First, Spring Lake Michigan
The MLS Flat fee program worked perfectly for us. Once we listed, we had numerous prospective buyers come through our home and had two offers within 4 weeks. It saved us thousands and it’s the only way to sell a house.
KT Biek, Kentwood
My wife and I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for such an outstanding program. We decided to list our home for sale by owner and tried this for nearly three months with only a few calls. After some research I came across your program on the internet and decided to give your program some more thought. Slightly suspicious of such a low price and how your program would work, we decided to give it a try and we were so glad that we did. We purchased the 1 year listing, printed off all the required documents, etc. within one month we sold our home and we saved just over $8000.00 that we would had to have paid to a realtor to do what we could do on our own.
I have already recommended your program to fellow workers and family and I believe one has already signed up.
Again we would like to thank you for not just your professionalism, but for saving us a substantial amount of money.
PS our buyers didn't have a realtor so we were able to negotiate a price according to which we would had to have paid any ways, being able to do that, sealed the deal.
Travis and Dana Gurd, Caledonia
This program was perfect for me. I was able to sell my house in two months within my target sale price range. I would recommend this program to almost anybody - all you have to do is get a few good
pictures of your house, figure out some good wording for the listing, and then just answer a few phone calls. The rest is basic paperworkthat you have to do anyway. Also, Jeff was great about answering a
couple questions that I had along the way. MONEY SAVED... $10,785!
- Amerisell Realty helped us fill a difficult property fast! Our regular marketing wasn't working, so we tried something we hadn't done before: we used AmeriSell's flat rate MLS listing program. It worked great! In one month's time we got tons of leads. We just accepted an offer this
week. Jeff Kermath was wonderful - he walked us through the (new for us) process every step of the way. He always made sure that proper communication was happening so no leads fell through the cracks. I'm looking forward to working with Jeff and AmeriSell on another property.
Arbor Rent To Own
I strongly recommend home sellers consider using the inexpensive flat fee listing service provided by AmeriSell Realty. I found that getting in the MLS after eight months of trying to sell my home through “for sale by owner” sites on the internet was the turning point for me. Buyer’s agents were constantly calling for showings. Being inexperienced as a seller, I was also glad to have Jeff handle closing matters for a small fee.
-Tom Warsinske, Ann Arbor
I had a wonderful experience with Amerisell Realty on selling my home. It took only a few minutes of time to have our home on the mls listing to be exposed to all realtors and consumers. The savings were wonderful and everybody wins. Our home sold in 60 days in the worst market for the price we wanted. Try Amerisell Realty for a great realestate experience. Thanks again Jeff!
"AmeriSell Realty, Jeff Kermath, and Listfor98.com are the BEST way to sell your house in Michigan. We needed to sell fast and for a fraction of the cost we'd pay for an agent I learned more about the real estate business than I ever imagined and sold and closed within four months. Jeff's expertise is worth every penny and probably more."
Jimmy Mac & family, Ann Arbor broadcasting personality
"A changing world needs a changing real estate model where everyone can win (including the customer). Jeff Kermath's service and the Amerisell approach to real estate sales helped make that happen for us. We sold our house, closed within a month and saved well over $11,000! That helps in a challenging economy.
After my parents sold their home with AmeriSell I was convinced it was the only way to go. My wife and I saved $ 8,450.00 when our home sold, so why pay the extra 3% to another realtor just for the listing. I will personally let everyone know this is the way to sell your home. Thanks again Jeff

" Thank you, Jeff and AmeriSell for your Exceptional Flat Fee Program! As promised, your program offered everything I needed to effectively sell my home. I saved over $10,000 using AmeriSell! I will definitely recommend Amerisell to my friends! There is absolutely "NO" reason to pay a listing agent commission!!!!
Vince & Tracie Butera, New Buffalo, Mi
Amerisell is the ONLY way to sell your home people! TRUST US! We sold our house in just FOUR days using Amerisell's Flat Fee Listing and actually had two offers in that short amount of time - this after we had it listed last summer with a realtor for 3 mos and had no offers.
Why pay a listing agent 3% of your hard earned equity for posting some pictures on the MLS and being the go-between to schedule showings??? Just get your home on the MLS and you're IN! Everyone searches the MLS these days to find homes and we can do it w/o realtors taking our hard earned cash!
We need to save every penny we can in today's struggling economy, Amerisell is one smart & easy way to do that!
Times are tough. My wife and I found ourselves in a tough spot with needing to sell our home in Michigan. We listed with Jeff at Amerisell Realty to try to save some money on the sale of our home. We figured that we were going to take a bath with the home regardless and we wanted to try to minimize our loss. We listed with Jeff and believe it or not our home just sold. We got a decent price and didn't have to pay out exorbitant fees. Thanks Jeff and Amerisell Realty.
"We just sold our second house using the flat fee program, and purchased our first using the buyer's rebate program. Both are great ways to save some serious $$$$. Seeing the rebate money coming back to you on the closing statement is certainly a nice feeling! We saved over $4,000 on the sell side and also got a $4,500 rebate buying through Amerisell! Wow!!
Mike and Gina
- "Amerisell was a great option for us. We actually had more showings with Amerisell on our home than we did when we were listed with a realtor. The accu-show feature was especially helpful in that we could access the feedback from showings of our home from the computer. We highly recommend Amerisell.
Joni Star, W. Bloomfield
- Hey Jeff, I just wanted to thank you for helping us sell our house. We saved about $7,000, even though the other agent still made their 3%. We had nine showings, four seriously interested and no open houses. All was done by the web site and MLS. I think our home sold in about 4 weeks, not bad in this market! Once again thanks, you were helpful and like a good friend.
Mike & Cheryl Brown
- I checked other flat fee companies and found Amerisell's pricing the best. Service was great too and the program works. Why would anyone hire a traditional Realtor? All they do is put you in the MLS & Realtor.com! This program is long overdue!
Michelle M. Eaton Rapids
- Amerisell listed my home in Ann Arbor and we had two full price offers within 10 days of going into the MLS! We also had 2 other parties ready to make an offer if the others didn't work out! 10 days in normally not a surprise in our neighborhood but in the summer of 2006 I have seen more for sale signs in yards than in the last 10 years and it seems the signs are in the yards for many months, some even as long as 1.5 years. Thank you for saving us thousands, it works!
Mark Salisbury, Ann Arbor
- "AmeriSell Realty is the answer for all of us who ask the same questions to the people who are trying to take control of your hard earned equity...can I do it and how much will it cost me? With AmeriSell Realty the answer is yes, you can do it and you will pay a lot less than high commission realty firms. Jeff Kermath and my friends at Amerisell Realty are real estate professionals who understand the value of successful individuals taking control of their own financial decisions. I sold my place in less than a month and with the equity I saved...see you on the beaches!"
- Mr. Bob Jarvis
- "The flat fee program is the way business will be done! I can't thank you enough for saving me 3% of my sales price of $389,000 ( an $11,670 savings of my hard earned equity! Thank you!"
- "I just wanted to thank you for all your help in selling my home. Any questions that had, you gave me quick answers. The flat fee was only $449 to be put on MLS. Which is much better than paying a realtor their 3% commission for just a few clicks to write the listing."
- Don Horton
- "Selling my house this way gave me the control I needed in the sale of my home. It saved me over $7500. Selling my home with a realtor at 6% would have cost me $14,100. With your program it only cost me your flat fee + a commission to the realtor who brought me the buyer. That is a savings of over $7500. I will be using that money towards my new furniture. Thanks again & I'll pass your name on to more people who may be interested."
- Holly Blue
- "Thank you very much for providing this excellent service! At first, I tried to sell my house by myself. I had my home listed in papers and put signs at major local intersections. Although many people came to see my house and made oral offers, those offers were of low quality, i.e. not serious and hard to follow up.
Once I signed up for your service, many buyer's agents started to bring their clients to see my house. Soon there were offers, solid and good ones. With your advices on dealing with buyer's agents, I signed a contract in about a week. I'm really happy with your service and would recommend to friends who're thinking about selling their homes. Your service is effective and with no hidden cost. I saved over $9,000!
Thanks again! "
- "We used your firm to list our property in the MLS, and essentially saved 3% on the sale of our home. It was not a hassle either since the buyers brought an agent to represent their client. We were very satisfied with the MLS listing."
- " When I wanted to sell my house, I wasn't ready to give 6% commission to real estate agents. I found this Flat fee program where I simply paid a small fee to get my house listed on MLS. I still got the asking price and paid only 3% commission to buyer's agent. I also had the opportunity to sell own my own. Flat fee program is a great way to save money and still get the maximum value of your house. "
- "The flat fee service was easy, affordable, and assisted in the quick sale of our condo. We saved several thousand dollars and would recommend the service highly to anyone wishing to sell their home, while avoiding the steep commissions associated with listing with a traditional broker. Many thanks!"
- Shannon M. Allain
The list can go on and on. Quite simply, this is the way more and more real estate will be bought and sold. More and more people want to save money and with our business model they can save thousands!
A low flat fee up front. If you sell yourself, you pay no commission. If a Realtor brings you the buyer, just pay them their fee. What could be more fair?
I hear it all day, every day. Seller's are saying, "I don't mind paying a Realtor 3% if they bring a buyer, but I'm not paying someone 6% or 7% just to put my home in the MLS & Realtor.com!
It only takes a few minutes to get started. LIST NOW
