Redfin is a real estate brokerage. The Seattle-based company was founded in 2004, and went public in Aug. 2017. Glenn Kelman is the CEO. Redfin's business model is based on sellers paying Redfin a small discounted fee, either 1 or 1.5% to list the seller's home. This does not include an additional fee charged to the seller to compensate the brokerage representing the buyer. This latter fee usually is in the 2.0-3.0% range. Buyers who buy with Redfin also get a portion of the brokerages commission back that can be applied to their closing costs or in the form of a check after they close on their home tax free.
Highest paying job titles at Redfin include Software Engineer, Business Intelligence Engineer, and Quality Assurance Engineer
