About Discount Realty Works and the new Discount Realty Works Chippewa Valley LLC
Discount Realty Works began as Michael Paul's real estate hobby in 2005. Back then, we were just a For Sale By Owner website and we had no licensed agents. People liked the concept, but in practice it was apparent that not enough people were seeing the listings without the properties being listed in the MLS.
In 2006, Michael Paul earned his broker's license and began offering Flat-fee MLS listings to help budget-conscious sellers in and around Eau Claire. Over the next few years, the busienss grew quickly in several ways.
First, it grew geographically. People from as far away as Hudson, Rice Lake, Birchwood, and Winter contacted us asking if we would list their homes. We were grateful for the positive reaction...but the name Eau Claire by Owner just isn't as meaningful 90 miles away from Eau Claire.
Secondly, the business grew in the services offered. We started offering Full Service listings, where we handle everything from the beginning, for rates far less than people were accustomed to seeing.
In 2008, we officially changed the name to Discount Realty Works and every year has been more successful than the previous. Michael Paul also started to work with buyers, helping each find the perfect home on the best terms possible.
In 2018, agent Rich Kimble procured the assets of DRW and formed the new Discount Realty Works Chippewa Valley LLC. With low listing commissions and plenty of experience with buyers, we are poised to expand our services throughout the entire Chippewa Valley.
We still keep overhead costs low, but now we offer a wider range of services. We now have additional agents to help spread the word that Discount Realty can work for you!
