Brokers – John Dixon & Associates

Partnering With Brokers

Get Involved with Auctions

Auctions are a time tested innovative approach to selling real estate. Through aggressive marketing and competitive bidding auction are commonly becoming a tool for traditional brokers. Here are several ways for traditional brokers to become involved with auctions.

  • Buyer’s Agent – We offer a buyer broker participation program for most auction events
  • Referring Agent – Refer a client or customer and be as involved as you would like during the course of the entire process.
  • Listing Agent – Many of our clients often have existing agents associated with their properties. We work cooperatively with those existing agents to ensure the clients goals and objectives are being met every step of the way.
