What Golden Drake Realty Stands For


As the Principal Broker and Owner of Golden Drake Realty, I can say that our people alone make the company anything we want. We’re not for sale; no other company or person will ever influence us with corporate demands or money. We make the calls, and here’s what we say:


Golden Drake Realty is founded on one solid idea: You, our Customers, Clients, and Principals – whom we serve – come first in all matters. Our entire group of consultants, attorneys, contractors and other service providers are put to work with one focus – You. We will never put the interests of any Franchise, Sales Goals, Profits, or anything else before your interests.  We will maintain our great reputation by serving you and our community with excellence.


We receive no monetary gain from “kickback” agreements with affiliated real estate service suppliers such as title companies, lenders, relocation companies, etc., and therefore are only influenced by one objective: to find you the best real estate service suppliers in the industry to work with, period.


We don’t advertise or brag about our sales numbers and have no interest in “dominating” anything, or competing with other Brokers. We do not have arrogant self-serving goals to be number 1 in sales quantity – which has nothing to do with quality. We have one burning interest: to provide you with the best quality sale or purchase of your home. On that we compete, hard.


We don’t charge any forced and confusing hidden fees, such as “compliance”, “storage”, “transaction” fees, which are fees charged without any additional service provided. Frankly, we’re disgusted when we see other Brokers charge these fees simply because the public is tricked into paying it. We charge a standard commission for providing you excellent service and that’s it, period.


We don’t negotiate with those who provide professional services to us, such as photographers, website developers, CPA’s etc. We find loyal people we trust, treat them with respect, and pay them what they ask at the time of service. We are always pleasantly surprised when they provide us, and you, with more than we asked for. You, our customers, are then the beneficiary of their exemplary, “over and above” service. They care more because we care more.


We’re not slick, manipulative, or pushy. We work hard to present you and everyone else with facts to make tough decisions, and when working with others we negotiate maturely, not like spoiled children.  We’re tough, but secure enough to be tough while respecting all parties.


We add tremendous value over and above your real estate transaction. We are not in this to simply buy or sell a home and snipe out a commission; rather we want to help with the “whole project.” With referrals for over 100 service providers we are fully capable of helping you with all the things involved before, during, and after the sale – related to, or not related to Real Estate.


Our boss is the State of Michigan, and our local Real Estate Board, period. We don’t answer to any corporate interests. We study and comply with all associated Real Estate Board rules and consumer protection laws in order to provide you with the best quality service.
