FAQs

What is FSBO System?
In 1995, Alaska attorney and real estate broker Kirk Wickersham created a complete, integrated home-selling technology called FSBO System. Since then we’ve helped thousands of clients sell their home on their own and save the entire 6% agent commission. Every year, through good markets and bad, our average client has outperformed the average local agent listing in terms of days on market and chance of success. In 2016 our average client made an extra $14,000 compared to paying a six percent agent commission. See our Client Statistics.
