“They’re actually coming in and working with the real estate agents and brokers in a collaborative fashion rather than competing against us. And that’s been a real refreshing change.”
Cynthia Wiley, Real Estate Agent
“Transactions are going to be easier. There’s not going to be so much stress. And I think that’s where Ribbon is really going to make an impact.”
Scott Carpenter, Real Estate Agent

As you close more deals, Ribbon will send you qualified clients who come to Ribbon and need an agent.
Stand out by marketing yourself as Ribbon Certified
Ribbon purchases the home first. Your buyer moves in and rents from us. They’re in a 1 year lease with a 90 day right to purchase the home at the exact same price we bought it for.
Your buyer purchases the home as per usual. Ribbon never owns the home.
Ribbon is free for agents. We partner with you to enable your clients with the capital and technology to buy and sell with certainty.
It costs the buyer 1.95% of the home price before diligence ends. If your buyer needs to rent, we charge them a fair, pre-determined market rent on the home. See our pricing page for details.
No. But you get paid more quickly and guarantee your closing. If Ribbon purchases the home, Ribbon pays your commission as though you were Ribbon’s buying agent. We will sign a buyer agency agreement on the property prior to close to ensure this.
You’ll need to submit 2 documents along with the standard NC form 2-T:
Get Ribbon Certified to use these. We can walk you through the details.
Tell us about your and your business in a 5 minute application on our site. Schedule a call with Ribbon and after we discuss on the phone and find that you’re a fit, you will become a Ribbon Certified Agent!
We certify agents whom we believe will represent Ribbon well when sharing Ribbon with their clients. Most importantly, agents who understand what we do and see the value in how it can help their clients.
In this case, your buyer is still in their lease, but Ribbon may need to sell the home to another landlord. Because we take a lot of risk on the price of the home and transfer costs by needing to sell the home, Ribbon charges your buyer an extra 1% of the home price if they decide not to purchase.
Ribbon runs a free valuation and inspection beforehand so qualified buyers get upfront certainty. As you get offers, turn them into no contingency Ribbon Offers so you can close quickly and with certainty. Ribbon also markets your home as Ribbon Certified to our qualified cash buyers.
It’s free for now while we are beta testing this feature with a select few agents. Really. Ribbon’s 1.95% fee is usually paid by the buyer, but your seller can offer to pay some or all of it if they want to guarantee their closing.
