To us "BuyWise" means something. It means being smart with your money. This is a core value that we strive to pass on to you, our client. Whether selling, buying or renting, we treat your money as if it were our own. We don't believe in paying a 6% commission and don't believe you should either! 

The real estate industry is changing. Sellers are still needing professional guidance in their sales and purchase transactions but wise consumers are looking for better alternatives to that standard 6% commission. Our $2,500 Listing Fee Program allows you to keep significantly more money in your pocket. 


It works EXACTLY like listing your home with a standard big-box Realtor with one exception: Instead of you agreeing to pay a 6% commission (3% to the Listing Agent & 3% to a Buyer's Agent), you simply agree to pay $2,500 to BuyWise Real Estate and *3% to a Buyer's Agent. It's. That. Simple. The best part? You don't pay until we sell your home!

From that point forward there's no change. We take amazing photos of your property, list it for sale in the MLS, syndicate it to HUNDREDS of online websites (, Zillow, Trulia, etc....), set you up with a showing service to handle your listing appointments and get you to the closing table!


We rebate **$1,250 of your Listing Fee to you when you PURCHASE a property with us representing you in your real estate transaction. The purchase must occur within a 2-year timeframe. 


Typical agent commission of 6% on a $250,000 home sale: $15,000
The BuyWise commission on the same $250,000 home sale: $10,000
For a total savings of $5,000!

Typical agent commission of 6% on a $500,000 home sale: $30,000
The BuyWise commission on the same $500,000 home sale: $17,500 
For a
total savings of $12,500!


During the process of interviewing real estate brokerages, you may speak with agents who will try to charge you 5-6%. They will try to justify their commission in many ways. They may tell you they provide additional services that other real estate agents can't afford to provide because they charge a discounted rate. This simply isn't true and don't be deceived by this sales tactic. 

BuyWise provides all the services that 6% agents provide and in many instances more. That's what we mean by "Full-Service". You receive all the services listed below and save a substantial amount of money in the process. With BuyWise you don't have to compromise on service to save money!

What my clients are saying  

"I highly recommend Shari Guess as a Realtor. She effectively negotiated for me and that was the most important requirement that I gave her. She saved me an additional $5,000 at the end. She tries very hard at everything she does and follows up very responsibly and quickly. She has excellent connections that all have contributed to saving me and making me money. I trust her and appreciate her candor and honesty. She keeps it all real and profitable for her clients. I have utilized her twice for purchases, so I’m speaking from experience."


~ Kent Graves

"Shari Guess is blazing a trail in the real estate industry! Agents don't actually have as much to do as they did "back in the day". Most people find their homes & apply for financing online. There is something to be said for all the effort buyers and sellers put in, in today's home buying/selling process. This is why I think Shari's rebates & fee schedule for selling are so amazing! She understands there has been a shift in the home buying process and is doing everything she can to help her clients save money. Once we realized the saving with using Shari as our agent we can't imagine ever using any other agent! She rebated us $3,200 toward our closing costs on our home purchase and could have saved the sellers much more! There is no gimmick & she was always quick to respond when we had questions! If you're buying or selling a home in North Texas... then save yourself some money & call Shari!"


~ Joe K.

"Shari Guess, Buy Wise Real Estate, treated me like family. She worked hard to help me find the perfect home, while doing everything in her power to keep me sane through the process. Shari puts her customers first. Rather than trying to nickle and dime everyone, she's always looking for ways to help the customer spend less, while receiving top quality service and finding the perfect home, selling a home, or both. If you want a genuine, caring, honest realtor, Shari is waiting to treat you like family too."


~ Kate Osio

"We have been with this amazing Realtor for the past 9+ years, she found our first starter home 8 years ago, and actually sold it for us this year at a great profit and then turned around and worked on a great deal of a lifetime on our new house. Shari does her homework, knows her comps, knows the market and is extremely diligent and thorough in her work. She is very meticulous and will fight for what you want. She will be there for you every step of the way. Support the small business owners and you will be so happy you did!"


~ Jessica Britton

"I've gotten a lot of good business people referred to me from volunteering with the Boy Scouts. Shari Guess is one of them. I recently bought a commercial property in Aurora, TX. She made the process easy to understand and was super cheap on fees. She is approachable and honest. When I had questions about another real estate transaction that she couldn't answer, she immediately referred me to a lawyer who could. In fact, I always walk away from a conversation with her feeling like I've learned something I can use, and that she cares about me as a client. When I asked her about selling a house that was pretty ugly, she gave me a sincere appraisal of the house and several good alternatives to what I could to do, one of which ended up making me more money."


~ Jennifer Prentice

~ Jamie Bitner

"Shari sold our home last year for our full asking price, and we had 3 offers the first weekend. Great communication throughout the entire process. Easiest listing I've ever had. Thanks Shari!"


~ Todd Henderson

"Shari is a GREAT Realtor. She helped us find the new construction home that was PERFECT for our little family. If she didn't know the answer she was real quick to find it for us. She constantly was checking in with us wanting to know if there was anything she could do for us. We would for sure recommend her to ANYONE and EVERYONE who needs help selling or buying a home in the area."


~ Andrea Pearson

"We are very thankful we contacted Shari to help us sell our home. Shari is honest, hard-working, extremely thorough, and is careful to regard every detail. She is consistently available for questions, updates, or anything at all. Shari spent numerous hours photographing our house and noting every detail possible to create the perfect listing. Her time was worthwhile, as our house was under contract within a couple of days. We only wish we had contacted her sooner!"


~ Breanne Fernihough

"First time home buyers and she made the process smooth sailing!! She was a terrific negotiator, superb at keeping us in the loop, and very communicative! We had a great experience and would definitely recommend!!!"


~ Garrett Wagner

~ Donald Felton

"Shari, we want to thank you for making our home buying process a complete success.  You brought to the table the experience and knowledge of the industry that we lacked. You continued to work hard on our purchase without ever losing a personal touch. We sincerely appreciate all of your effort and will definitely spread the word about your company!"


~ Terri Lee

"A few months ago my husband & I decided we wanted to move to another house & scale down...We had seen a house in a surrounding area & called the number on the sign. Shari Guess agreed to meet me there within the hour. The first moment that we met I felt that I had known her for a long time. She asked a few questions & then started advising me ... I found her to be the most personable & knowledgeable real estate person that I had ever worked with. She was outstanding in her knowledge of the houses in our price range & we took many trips to look at every possibility there was...We sold our home & she helped us find & buy our new home as well. I still don't know to this day how she knew all of the questions & answers, but she did. We could NOT have done any of it without her & she was the most valuable real estate agent that I have ever known. We will never buy or sell a house again without using her. If you want to sell your home the right way with the right person, call Shari Guess."
