In 1993-1994 Nathalie and her agents within the company in Maryland met many sellers who could not afford to use an agent even if they wanted to. Prices had declined somewhat- She thought " we do not want to become a discount brokerage, yet should be able to help these people." Nathalie created a "real estate menu." The menu has now become a way of the future. Nathalie Mullinix resides in Hawaii and Maryland and is an accomplished speaker, writer, consultant, trainer, mother.
Question: What if I start off with the "For Sale by Owner" program and later want to switch to a different program?
Answer: We work with agents and brokerages that handles full service listings as well as fee for service. Switching programs is easily handled. If you later switch to a full service programs we refund your original $379.00 at closing by reducing the commission by $379.00.
Question: What if I am doing the "For Sale by Owner" program and occasionally have questions?
Answer: You may e-mail us questions and have them answered at no charge. Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also be able to contact the agent or brokerage handling your listing in your local area.
Question: What if I want to handle all of my own showings but would like a trained professional to handle the contracts and closing?
Answer: There are several options available, but you would most likely want to sign up with a 1% program (1% of sales price- $2500.00 minimum). If you only need the contracts written there would be a fee of $379.00.
Question: What is a Transaction Coordinator?
Answer: A transaction coordinator is responsible for maintaining the escrow closing process and completing all tasks assigned during the normal transaction process of the Broker and/or Agent. Our Transaction Coordinator provides you with a timeline keeping track of all dates, ordering inspections, from contract to close. We are not representing either party but making sure that no dates are missed. Communicates with all parties including escrow, lender, and agents.
Question: What is included in the one percent program?
Answer: This includes preparing contracts, arranging inspections, appraisal issues, negotiations, handling all details from contract to closing-commission paid at closing.
Question: Once I sign up with the "For Sale by Owner" program, how long before my listing will show on the Internet?
Answer: Your listing will be processed and shown on the MLS & the Internet sites within 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Question: Does my telephone number show in the multiple listing service?
Answer: Yes. Your information is placed in the private remarks of the listing. This means that agents are able to call you directly to schedule appointments. Your information is not put in the public remarks section because the mls rules and regulations require parties to be licensed agents and brokers. Your contact information is also listed on realtyuniversal.com & ownersandagents.com with your mls numbers for easy access. When the agent's or brokerage's company information is listed, parties call our number or e-mail our office and your contact information is given immediately.
Question: If someone calls your office, how would I know that you are not taking my lead?
Answer: If a prospective buyer calls the office inquiring about your home, their information is taken and they are given all your contact information. We encourage you to spot-check randomly to ensure you that this is being done.
Question: How long is my property listed for?
Answer: Until it sells.
Question: I am a seller going over the agreement giving you permission to list my property in the MLS. I do not understand the last paragraph that says to check off yes or no in regards to you advertising my property.
Answer: Brokerages run additional advertising on full listings and also runs spot ads on properties. If you check yes, you are giving permission to advertise your property alongside full listings at no additional cost to you. This is in addition to all of the exposure you are already receiving with the "for sale by owner program". If we bring a buyer from this additional advertising, your only cost is what you are offering to agents/brokers as a coop/courtesy fee. There are no additional monies due.
Question: What if I allow you to run additional spot ads at no cost to me and the buyer already has an agent?
Answer: No additional compensation or commission is received.
Question: If I check off yes to your company advertising my property and you produce a buyer from that advertising, does this mean I have to pay 6%?
Answer: No, only whatever percentage you are offering other brokers. 3% or whatever amount you decide up front.
Question: How do we sign up with the program?
Answer: Simply click here and follow the links provided. Once you purchase the "For Sale by Owner" program you will be able to download the required forms as well as an instruction sheet.
Question: What if I don't want to sign-up online?

(mail to: Chartley Office Park 19 Chartley Park Rd., Reisterstown MD 21136)
Question: Do you offer signs?
Yes. Under our 1% percent program up to Full Service there is no additional cost for signs. Under our $379 “For Sale By Owner” program there is a $100 fee per sign, of which you receive a $50 credit upon return.
Question: How many photos can I post?
Answer: Up to 150 photos. If you only have a couple and want to add more later that is fine.
Question: What if I want to make changes to the listing after it is inputted into the mls and all web sites?
Answer: You may make changes at any time. It is asked that you e-mail, fax or mail the changes so to have them in writing to avoid any discrepancies. Changes are made within 48 hours of receipt.
Question: What if I want to list a property in another state? Can you handle it for me?
Answer: Our brokerage, Nathalie Mullinix REALTY UNIVERSAL®, Inc. can assist you in Maryland and Hawaii as far as any representation or mls input. As far as the other 48 states we have affiliates that are members of REALTY UNIVERSAL®, Inc. which can assist you and offer you the same programs. These affiliates are licensed through the real estate commission in their respective state under either their own brokerage or a company brokerage.
Question: What if I only need hourly service on an as needed basis?
Answer: Our "MENU" programs are customized for you individually giving you the flexibility to design your own program. Our consultants will gladly walk you through the program- and if you only need us occasionally- that is fine!!!
Question: Hi, I was reading the faq section and there is a question about what commission I would owe if your firm
finds me a buyer. The answer is 3% or whatever I would negotiate with another buyer's broker.
Is it customary for the seller to pay a commission to the buyer's broker if they are selling the
property themselves? Doesn't this sort of defeat the purpose of doing for sale by owner? Thanks.
- Joanne -
Answer: Aloha Joanne,
That is a great question!!! If you sell your property yourself, you do not owe any more money. We recommend that you offer other agents/brokers 3%, but the amount is up to you. We cannot put -0- in the mls. You will be receiving all of the leads which we would normally receive under a full service listing. This gives you a 90% chance of selling your property yourself. We offer to run spot ads at no additional cost to you outside of the "for sale by owner" program. This is where we would receive a commission if we bring a buyer. (you can opt to have us do this or not) Since we run ads for our full service listings we offer to run spot ads. The market has changed drastically- exposure is key- so when you use our "for sale by owner" program you receive maximum exposure, many leads from buyers who are not working with an agent as well as agent exposure- while saving on the listing side. Plus we are here if you need us on an "as needed basis." Pricing is key in this market- this program gives you the flexibility to lower your price and end up with a better bottom line figure if you have the time to handle the showings, etc. The cost of $379 is so small compared to the exposure and print advertising which is not working well these days, not to mention isn't cheap. Have a wonderful week!!!

Below are a few words people had to say about REALTY UNIVERSAL®, Inc. after using the program.
You will never meet a more devoted person to finding positive solutions to any real estate deal in a timely, professional manner than Nathalie Mullinix. Nathalie helped my husband and I find our first home and has gone out of her way to stay connected and be helpful in every way over the years. She takes her business and your satisfaction more seriously than anyone I know. She has the kindness and integrity we all look for in any business professional.
Nathalie is a universal leap above the others. I will never go anywhere else for my real estate needs!
The "Menu" programs are exactly what the future needs in real estate. I can search the Internet for many answers yet still need a real estate agent for multiple listing service and if problems come up. REALTY UNIVERSAL has all of this- wish I would have known about this program years ago-
Thank you REALTY UNIVERSAL!

Being a licensed real estate agent myself, even though I am in the timeshare sales business with Hilton, I found Nathalie's For Sale By Owner program very useful and cost-efficient when I sold my townhouse a few months ago. Their expertise in handling the paperwork that is necessary in the sales process was smooth & efficient. Their FSBO program was all I needed to get the job done.
Director of Sales
I would like you to know how much I appreciate the professionalism and service that you provided to me. During the past 3 months your help in selling my 2 houses has been great. Your FSBO program was so successful that I was able to get a Buyer through the MLS listing who paid more than my asking price!
On my second property, I had already found a Buyer. Having you prepare and walk us through the signing of the contract worked out great! Having a professional Realtor involved relieved a lot of the concerns that both parties would have had if we tried to do it ourselves. It also eliminated the need to negotiate many of the details because you were able to explain the customary practices in a way that was unbiased, objective and acceptable to both parties. Your fee of $379 was a bargain for making the transaction flow so smoothly.
Your flat rate fee structure is the perfect answer to my needs. It allows me to retain control of the transaction while saving me thousands of dollars and providing me the services that I need. I have already recommended you to my associates and look forward to working with you again in the near future.

"Nathalie Mullinix is an undisputed leader in real estate marketing and training. In this seminar Nathalie teaches you the secrets to turn leads into your listings! I know, she taught me how to get over a million dollars in listings in my second month working with her back in the early 90's! Remember...those who list, last!!”
President, Bennett Robert Wisner Sr., Inc.
Thanks for your help. In the past I have always sold my homes by "for sale by owner", when I put my Honolulu home up for sale I listed it in the paper daily for three weeks and received some phone calls. I then switched to open houses on Sundays, over the next three weeks I had a lot of people, but just lookers.
After six weeks I was feeling a little discouraged and while talking to a realtor friend, he told me that 90% of homes sales are made by other realtors, not your own listing realtor. With this enlightening information I decided to try something new. I then contacted your office and arranged to have my home listed in the realtors multiple listings, you then scheduled my house for a "brokers open house" the following week. On Thursday, seven brokers came to the open-house, two of them said that they had people that would be interested in my home, that same day I sold my home for the price that I wanted.
What can I say, but thank you. I am now a firm believer in your services and have told all my friends how fast and easy it was to sell my home.
Douglas & Merrianne Bieler
We were extremely happy with your services. Your help was exactly what we needed to sell our place in Honolulu successfully and we would work with you again anytime. Also, your advice on the phone was always very professional, friendly and honest. We also appreciate it, that we saved a lot of money by having you list us in the MLS and giving us the possibility to reach many more buyers and still being able to sell the apartment ourselves and still having the security of your realtor-knowledge in the background. That was truly the perfect solution for us!
Thank you very much and we wish you good luck with your business for the future!
Aloha from far away,
Susanne Wildi & Carsten Fabich
We recommend Nathalie Mullinix's real estate service to anyone buying or selling property in Hawaii. She provided us with tailored service to exactly meet our needs in selling our Foster Village home. Our house was on the market for over one year, listed with another broker and agency, but did not sell at our asking price. Less than one week after listing with Nathalie, we had several solid offers and subsequently sold the house at our desired price. We would not hesitate to work with her in the future and recommend her to anyone in need of real estate advice.

With this new demand, experienced real estate professionals who are knowledgeable in all facets of the industry are needed, along with alternate options to meet the customer's specific needs.

I have known Nathalie since the late 80s and in that
time she has handled four of my real estate transactions. Nathalie is
extremely conscientious regarding all aspects of the transaction, whether
buying or selling. She has a true knack for understanding the buyers
requirements and needs for their new home, and perseveres when selling
the current home. Nathalie is not only my agent of choice, but also became
a true friend over the years. When I'm ready to sell and buy again, Nathalie
will be notified to handle both transactions..AGAIN
Take care and be well.
Nathalie Mullinix Realty is a firm recommended
to me by legal and personal associates.When I decided to sell my home,
a 40 acre residence in Northern Maryland, I wished a company I could
trust and put the home up for sale with Nathalie Mullinix.
The experience was one of mixed emotion because of personal reasons, but one which was efficiently and effectively transferred by a company with an excellent reputation. Not only is Nathalie an experienced realtor but has become a long term friend and associate.

I met Nathalie in a class she was teaching at
the Board of Realtors and knew I had to find a way to work with her and
learn from her. A few months later, I came on board as an agent and have
been thrilled to be a part of her team! Nathalie is so innovative and
brings incredible experience to the table! I was looking for a mentor
and knew I had found that person in Nathalie. It's so important to know
someone not only has the knowledge and experience to pass along, but
has a positive, caring attitude. I discovered quickly that business can
grow for any of us if we know how to create that growth and have seen
for myself the amazing difference being on Nathalie's team makes! I have
learned and continue to learn so much from Nathalie and greatly appreciate
the opportunity, not only in the Real Estate business but in life!

My husband and I sold our home in 4 days with
REALTY UNIVERSAL's Menu. It was much better than the other For Sale By
Owner methods because we negotiated the buyer's agent's commission. We
saved over 20k in commission pay out. We will, without a doubt, being
using REALTY UNIVERSAL in the future.
Thanks Nathalie and team!
Mr. & Mrs. Whitehouse
I met Nathalie in the early 80's when she began
working with mea t Long & Foster realtors. From the very beginning,
I noticed that she was special. She seemed to know instantly how to make
her clients lover her. Most importantly, she took control of difficult
situations and resolved them with a competence that demanded respect.
As her manager and friend, I never doubted her future would be very successful.
Nathalie's FSBO program is the perfect bridge between a full-on real estate listing service and a do-it-yourself buy owner quagmire. She gives you the connection to the MLS and the agents with buyers in tow, all at a great price. It isn't just a listing, it is a complete package including lots of great advice. Her services were a vital part of my own FSBO home sale. I'd do it again the same way.
"For Sale by Owner Workshop Kit"
This book, by real estate leader, Nathalie Mullinix, is outstanding for anyone wanting to sell their own home. Detailed, clear, orderly and easy to put into action. I don't know how any workbook could be any better. It exudes enthusiasm and gives the user confidence. Nathalie handled my purchase of three properties and the sale of two under her full service program.

To whom it may concern,
We called Nathalie Mullinix Realty Universal to sell our home. Nathalie had moved to Hawaii so we had not called her company first. At this point we were getting behind on our mortgage and were listed with another national company who seemed to be doing nothing at all for us. They never even contacted us, we always had to call them. So one day I decided to call Nathalie. She had sold my mother's home for me so I gave it a try. Even being in Hawaii Nathalie called me all the time to keep me posted on what was happening with the house.
At this point we were facing foreclosure. But she kept our hopes up and even contacted the two mortgage companies for me. She went back and forth with them until she got them to except a short sale and with that we got a buyer for the house. She went out of her way for us and she really did not have to. But she talked with the mortgage companies and buyer right up to the last minute to make sure everything was taken care of. If not for her, we would have probably lost everything. I can't say enough to thank her for all she did. All I know is I don't know what I'd have done without her. She goes that extra mile and really cares about people. Even as far away as she is, she still handles things like she's right here. I'd recommend her to anyone anywhere. She proved to me she doesn't have to be in the same state to sell your home. No one could ask for a better real estate company. She takes care of you personally and thats really hard to find these days!
To whom it may concern,
I have known and worked with Nathalie Mullinix since 1992. In that time I feel like I have gotten to know her pretty well. She is one of the most knowledgeable, and capable business woman I have ever met. She has a great deal of integrity and is one of the most trustworthy I know. I would not hesitate to put any and all of my business in her capable hands. Nathalie Mullinix will be an asset to any company.
Rush Davis - Membership- Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors
To whom it may concern,
Nathalie Mullinix was a great asset to the Greater Baltimore Board of REALTORS. Nathalie instructed the New Member Orientation and Education classes in a very professional manner. The Board lost a great member when Nathalie moved to Hawaii.Nathalie in my opinion would be a great candidate to teach any real estate course.
