History & Future
Deborah P. Crevier-Kent, owner of For Sale By Owner Services began her career as a licensed Real Estate agent. Realizing that home sellers typically pay too much for real estate services, often even losing, Ms. Crevier-Kent started For Sale By Owner Services which was incorporated in 1994. Her goal was to create a local company offering a full line of services including a professional, cost effective, highly visible real estate advertising magazine and high traffic web site(s) for home owners who want to sell their property "by owner" and the Flat Fee MLS for the clients that want Realtor exposure. Since 1995, the company has built an impressive roster of satisfied clients by giving customers the best home sales service available at a fraction of the cost. Being a local company - we are here when you and your buyer need us.

Due to the amount of savings realized by both buyer and seller, and the enthusiastic customer response, For Sale By Owner quickly became the leading real estate publication in the Northern Virginia Real Estate market, and currently sells over 900 homes per year. Dedicated to helping home sellers and buyers alike avoid costly real estate commissions in the home transfer process, our company has saved our customers millions of dollars.

Ms. Crevier-Kent joined the HomesbyOwner.com - a nationwide company of the FSBO Publishers as well as FSBOPublishers.org, a consortium of For Sale By Owner publications, back in January of 1998. Searching "for sale by owner va" you will find GoToFSBO.com and Homesbyowner.com to be one of the top 10 ranking of most major search engines.

Business Philosophy
At For Sale By Owner Services, we have created a superior real estate publication and internet site that is driven by one thing: offering an effective, affordable advertising solution that provides homeowners and businesses with a direct path to the real estate market. The For Sale By Owner publication contains full-color photographic advertising for not only homeowners, but also businesses related to the real estate market.

For Sale By Owner Services has been able to create immediate and measurable results for our customers by focusing our efforts in ranking high on the search engines giving our product and advertisers maximum exposure with a broad demographic reach. This approach has enabled us to place the right product in front of the right people at the right time at the right price, thus producing the right results: a significant increase in business traffic, and a substantial reduction in the cost per home sale.

Team reviews

I would highly recommend using the services provided by Debbie Kent. She was also there to answer my questions in a timely and thorough manner. I was able to sell my home quickly in a relatively difficult market. I have one more home to sell in the future; I will definitely be using her services. Great experience overall.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Chesapeake Beach, Virginia Beach, VA.

I saved $12,000 in listing fees by using Debbie & her services! Since I have bought & sold multiple properties in the last 20 years, I am familiar with the process of selling a home, so I used one of the lower end packages. The ability to ge the property in the MLS is key - I still offerred the buyer agent commission of 3% so that they would not have an incentive to not show the property - that was later negotiaited down to 2.3%.

If you don't have a great deal of experience selling a home, you should go for one of the bigger packages - Debbie & her team was very responsive to changes (get the unlimited changes option) and questions - so I'm sure she will be great to work when you sign up for more options. I will NEVER use a full listing agent again - I wish I knew about her company years ago.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Manassas, VA.

I definitely recommend using Debbie Kent's services as a limited service realtor, especially the "whole enchilada" package. Debbie was very responsive to my many questions and quickly posted my house listing on MLS. Also, the sign and lockbox that I rented from Debbie were helpful in selling my home. In fact, as I was putting up the sign, a potential buyer saw me putting it up and requested to view the home right then! But the best part about using Debbie's services is that I saved $7,000 in realtor fees over what I would have paid using a traditional realtor. This savings is especially important if you don't have much wiggle room on the sale price for your home. In all, I highly recommend Debbie. She is friendly, responsive, and her services are very reasonably priced.  More Less
