"Dallas has been on our radar from the beginning, and we're excited to help Dallas-area buyers and sellers more easily find the right home and right agent while saving a lot of money in the process," Sawbuck CEO Guy Wolcott said in a statement. "While Dallas never saw the huge price drop that stung so much of the country, buyers and sellers here still know that in this market, knowledge is power. Sawbuck offers them the real-time information they crave, combined with access to some of the area's best agents."
Consumers can start their home search on Sawbuck.com, where they can search by property type, neighborhood or address to find homes for sale, local market stats and recently sold properties. A Sawbuck advisor then connects buyers with local real estate agents.
The online broker offers a Sawbuck Savings Guarantee, which promises $1,000 if a customer finds a better mortgage and closing-cost deal.
Since launching in January 2008, Sawbuck said it has completed more than $35 million in real estate transactions in the Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles areas.
