Creekview Realty was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Plano, TX. John Prell is the broker, and has over 30 years experience over 4 states in various capacities of the real estate business, including investing, hard money lending, residential & commercial construction, renovations, consulting, and brokerage.The 4 primary motivating factors for John Prell to first obtain his real estate license in Texas were:The high percentage of his real estate investment profits that were going to Realtors.That no Realtors were willing to provide services on a discount or flat fee basis like what Creekview Realty does today.Frustration with a corrupt real estate brokerage system designed and preserved to make buyers and sellers dependent on Realtors instead of Realtors providing value commensurate with fees charged to motivate buyers and sellers to choose their services willingly.Great business opportunity that ironically benefits from the vast majority of traditional Realtors' unwillingness to discount, which limits the competition for services that Creekview Realty provides.

Our Mission:Allow buyers and sellers to save substantial amounts of money on real estate commissionsProvide service at a level that surpasses what one would expect from a 6% Realtor.Help FSBOs (for Sale By Owners) market their properties on MLS, Realtor.com, and hundreds of other websites that display MLS listingsEducate home buyers and sellers about the real estate business to empower them to make informed decisions and succeed at buying and selling their homes.Make real estate services available on an "as needed" or "fee for service" basis instead of the "all or nothing" 6% commission basisFight for consumers by helping and supporting the U.S. Dept of Justice, and fight corruption by Real Estate Associations, MLSs, and state government offices and politicians that are influenced and paid for by read estate trade association lobbyists.Help buyers and sellers be less dependent on real estate agents

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Seabrook, TX.

They were great. Smooth process and saved me 3% seller's agent fee! They were very responsive to my questions and walked me through the process. I would highly recommend this team.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Frisco, TX.
Primary point of contact: Creekview Realty

We purchased a home using Creekview Realty's 2% rebate service about 3 months ago. To be honest, before even reaching out to Creekview for the first time, I was a little skeptical about the 2% rebate and the kind of service I would receive. I read some of the reviews on Google and decided to give them a call. I am glad I did. They were very helpful through the entire offer-making process and helped us get the house that we wanted at a good offer price. A few key points to note:

1. They are extremely responsive. You will almost always have someone pick up your call or quickly respond to your voicemails/emails, even over weekends. It may not necessarily be the same person that you spoke with the last time, but they maintain your records quite well and are easily able to pick up on where you left of last, even if it is different person that picks up your call. However, if you are looking to maintain contact with one person all the time, this is will likely not happen (as their business model is different from that of a traditional agent, but they are VERY good at their business model). That being said, there is usually one "head" agent that will finalize most of your official documents and they will keep the others posted quite well. Rachel seemed like she was our main agent who initially helped us with comps and advised on a good offer price and helped through the negotiations.

2. You will likely NEVER see them face-to-face. We never met any of the folks who we were speaking with, but this did not affect out buying process at all. If you need to meet them or have them show you a property, I believe you need to pay a trip charge (this is why they are able to offer a 2% rebate).

3. You will have to do most of your initial research yourselves and go to showings yourselves (have the selling agent show you the house), unless you are willing to pay the trip charge. But once you have decided on making an offer for a house, this is where Creekview picks up the baton and they are very good at it. They will call at any hour necessary to discuss and write up an offer, especially if you are trying to avoid a multiple-offer situation. They also use DocuSign to get documents/contracts signed, which is very convenient and avoids the hassle of printing/scanning,etc. and makes the process a lot quicker.

4. They are lightning quick in sending your rebate check one you have closed. They can do an ACH or mail you a check. We literally had our rebate via ACH 4 days after closing.

Disclaimer: We have been through the buying process once before (using a traditional agent) and knew what we wanted in a house and didn't need an agent to hold our hands through the initial house hunting process. That is why Creekview worked exceptionally well for us.

Bottom line: If you are doing your house research mostly yourselves (using Redfin, Zillow, Trulia, etc.) and are fairly comfortable with checking out houses yourselves until the point of making and offer, Creekview's service will work perfectly for you. I HIGHLY recommend them. However, if you are brand new to the house buying process and would like a traditional agent to walk you through the entire process end-to-end, then Creekview may not be for you. However, remember that you will be paying 2% of your home price for that additional hand-holding.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $25K in Roanoke, TX.

I would highly recommend Creekview Reality, Plano. The communication is a 10 as is the knowledge of the team. I can't thank them enough for making the process easy and always with great advice. I recommended them to another neighbor and they, too, use CV and sold fast. EASY, RELIABLE, PROFESSIONAL!!!  More Less
