Tommy Sowers from SoloPro

We’re joined today by Tommy Sowers, the CEO of SoloPro — a new startup that connects homebuyers and sellers with third-party real estate agents who perform services for flat fees, rather than a traditional commission structure.

Sowers’ experience spans multiple business sectors. Prior to SoloPro, his roles included service as the Assistant Secretary for Public and Intergovernmental Affairs at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company.He was also the 2010 Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in Missouri’s 8th Congressional District and is a former U.S. Army Special Forces officer.

Today we’re discussing how SoloPro hopes to change the real estate industry with its flat-fee model for buyers and sellers, what this means for the real estate industry and how it’s likely to affect agents.
