    Maximum INTERNET Exposure... (Get it with Mel Coker)
    Your listing agent, Mel Coker, is recognized as a leader in Internet technology and was featured in the April 2000 issue of Realtor magazine. Most real estate agents today will tell you they have an Internet website. The MOST important thing is this... Is their website well-linked in a wide variety of search engines? My website presence covers 3 different website domains and all are highly ranked in most of the top search engines. My primary webiste,, is particularly highly ranked by most top Internet search engines. This is VERY important!

    Your property is featured on THREE Internet sites that Mel Coker owns and maintains: (for Lake Murray listings)
    Additionally, your property will be featured at: AND

    More Marketing... (Get it with Mel Coker)

  • RE/MAX sign placed at your home or property with a BROCHURE box.
  • Listed in Multiple Listing Service. This is REALLY important. I enter all available information correctly with multiple photos and property disclosure form. I also enter all of my contact information so I can easily be reached with an offer. You should see how (badly) some agents handle this important task! We email the MLS online lising sheet to you for your review.
  • Your home is featured monthly in a Real Estate magazine ad (Guide of Homes and/or The Real Esate Book).
  • Featured in my monthly Real Estate Newsletter sent by email distribution.

    Follow-up... (Get it with Mel Coker)
    Yes, WE DO follow-up on showings of your home. We use modern lockbox technology to contact all real estate agents that have shown your home to attempt to get showing results opinions from the prospect and agent. We report back to you on an approximately weekly basis. We know it's different, but we do it for you!

    Contact Mel Coker to sell your custom home RENOWNED PROPERTIES... (Get it with Mel Coker)
    RE/MAX and Mel Coker team up to offer you the most in marketing for your custom home. Renowned Properties are those custom homes in a marketplace that are offered for sale at a minimum of 3 times the average local market sales price. In South Carolina, the established minimum price set by RE/MAX is currently $500,000.


    Everyone is concerned with the net proceeds of a real estate transactions. One factor impacting your bottom line is the sales commission. I offer a very competitive sales commission structure. My commission rate is lower than most full-service Realtors and real estate sales companies. I sell more and offer much more in marketing. So you get the BEST REAL ESTATE VALUE, when you contact Mel Coker.

    New listings Sales Commissions:
    $175-299k = 5.75%
    $300-499k = 5.50%
    $500-999k = 5.25%
    Over $1.0 million = 5.00%

    Examples of savings over traditional real estate commissions...
    $250,000 sales price (6.0% fee = $15,000; 7.0% fee = $17,500)
    Mel's fee = $14,375 * Savings = $625 to $3,125

    $400,000 sales price (6.0% fee = $24,000; 7.0% fee = $28,000)
    Mel's fee = $22,000 * Savings = $2,000 to $6,000

    $750,000 sales price (6.0% fee = $45,000; 7.0% fee = $52,500)
    Mel's fee = $39,375 * Savings = $5,625 to $13,125

    More Marketing + More Service + Lower Commissions = Better Value for YOU!
