Our Story, It Started Back in 2003
A new day has dawned for local cost effective, socially responsible real estate services for residents of Dallas Fort Worth. Unlike lead generation middleman websites like Zillow.com, Realtor.com and others that add more operating costs onto the backs of Realtors®, that are passed onto consumers, ARG™ offers an advanced generation 3 website that is based upon the concept of direct to consumer real estate services, with no added middleman costs and that means consumers save more money with our business solutions.
Years ago, before the internet age, competitive brokerages struggled to compete and were easily boycotted by full cost competitors who could control public access to MLS listing information. However, since the turn of the new century, MLS has gone cyber and this has enabled consumers to examine all MLS listings and find their next homes in the comfort of their own homes, or even on the go via a DFW Mobile Real Estate App. Gone are the days when the real estate industry could easily hide competitor's listings from the the home buying public. In fact, online information technologies, when used properly (outside of costly investor owned lead generation websites.) is the main reason real estate service costs have been declining.
In 2003, ARG™ emerged as a pioneering force in the use of online technologies to lower our client's cost of services. Now with consecutive years of top producing experience, multiple industry awards and service recognitions, you are engaging an established consumer first DFW Area Real Estate services business founded upon the premise of "Savings, Service and Results."
This website enables registered site visitors access to the most complete set of North Texas MLS data (VOW Level Data), for Active, Pending and Sold Listings. ARG's™ cutting edge MLS search entry system is simple to use, and offers immediate list of choices, once you begin to type in your query, and even allows you to search by individual builder names or a group of builders (far right search bar drop down). ARG's™ owner, Mike Askins, personally invested thousands of hours in layout development time in an effort to offer the most DFW MLS listing information possible, including Listing "price history," and on the fly "community value comparisons." Mike and his team of Realtors understands the DFW market and your expectations and even added "Non-MLS Texas Builder Direct New Homes, floorplans and Non-MLS Specs" to give you MORE than just MLS. It's our job to know about the latest market conditions, trustworthy home builders, upcoming developments, special sales and closeout opportunities — so you are a more informed home buyer.
If you are interested in amazing Realtor®services, being a showcase featured listing on ARG's™ cutting edge technology packed website, while saving the kind of money you simply won't find anywhere else, then we might be that DFW Realty business you have been looking for.

CASH REBATES FOR TEXAS NEW HOME BUYERS! ARG™ can help you negotiate and find the builder's bottom line and ensure you are getting all advertised builder discounts and incentives. ARG™ clients then get to tack on thousands in special rebate savings with our leading Texas New Home Buyer Cash Rebate offer. When you add it all up, you simply can't do better on your own.
Your new home cash rebate works to reduce your net cost basis in the new home you are buying by the size of your actual cash back rebate. Your rebate may be used to increase your design center upgrade budget without increasing your final price, or reduce your home's final sales price, or be used to reduce out of pocket closing costs or be taken in cash back.
When you stop to think about it, brokerage fees are a built-in component of your home's final sales price, whether you have Realtor representation or not, so in a sense, you are essentially paying for your own new home rebate. When you make ARG™ your agent, we unlock the built-in commission cost center and put the majority of those dollars to work for you and your family as opposed to allowing the builder to add to their profit margins.
