Buying with Insight

We pay you at closing!

Insight Realty, LLC is a licensed Pennsylvania real estate broker. By using us in your transaction, we rebate 50% of the buyer-agent commission to you at closing. The process is simple:

1. Search for your dream home.

Our clients receive a custom MLS search with listing updates the minute they happen. You can search the entire West Penn MLS right here on our site! You’ll also want to get pre-approved from a lender (if you’ll be using one).    

2. Make a list of homes you like and schedule appointments.

We set up the appointments and show you the houses you want to tour for free. During the touring stage, be sure not to sign on with any other agents. Under PA law, you’re not represented by an agent until you have a written agreement with them. You’ll want to sign on with us at this point if you want to move forward with your rebate at closing.

3.  Find your dream home, then make an offer.

We negotiate your deal and write your offer. We also perform a comparative market analysis on your offer and provide you with all necessary documents. We help you to review everything to ensure you never miss a single step in the process.

4. Your offer is accepted! 

We keep you on track with all important contract dates and deadlines to ensure a smooth road to the closing table.

5.  And finally, closing.

We continue to update you and review all closing documents. You then receive a rebate of 50% of the buyer-agent commission (generally, this is 1.5% of the purchase price based on a 3% buyer-agent commission) at closing.

You read that right - we will pay you at closing!

In a traditional real estate transaction, the seller pays a 6% or more commission to the listing agent when the property is sold.  If the buyer was represented by a buyer's agent, then usually half of that amount, or 3% of the commission, gets paid to the buyer’s broker.  Then the buyer's broker divides that 3% between himself and the buyer's agent.  We simply cut out the middleman since the broker and agent and the same person.  

You may be familiar with the term "seller assist," which is where a seller pays part of the buyer's closing costs by giving the buyer a credit at closing.  Our commission rebates are essentially the same thing, just coming from your broker rather than the seller.  

There’s virtually no difference between Insight Realty and a "traditional" broker - we just give you a rebate and they don't!

We could not be happier with David. We used him to purchase our first home in Mt. Lebanon a few years ago. When it came time move again this past year, we did not hesitate to go with David for both the sale of our previous home, and the purchase of the new home.  David is extremely knowledgable and very easy to get ahold of.  In addition to his experience as an agent, David is also a lawyer which was very helpful during the negotiation process and when we had questions about the details related to paperwork, timelines, and our rights when the inevitable curveballs come into the process. We will definitely use David again!

Chris, Irwin (buyer rebate of $3,690 and seller savings of $3,585)

David was absolutely great to work with. He was able to negotiate a great price and was very detail-oriented. We saved almost $6,000 in real estate fees. We feel very lucky to have found him and would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.

Donna, Cecil Township (received buyer rebate of $5,900)

My husband and I could not recommend Insight Realty/Dave Tkacik enough! Dave was both very professional and easy to work with, and his commission rebate is just icing on top of the cake. He helped us find and close on a house in under two months after we were relocated from Virginia for my job and needed to find a new home as quickly as possible. We are so grateful to him and wouldn't hesitate to use Insight Realty again in the future.

Elizabeth, Regent Square (received buyer rebate of $7,845)

We highly recommend Insight Realty's services to anyone looking for a home in the Pittsburgh area. They're friendly, trustworthy, and easy to work with, and the commission rebate certainly comes in handy!

Emilee S., Greenfield (received buyer rebate of $5,233.50)

He is very responsive and answers any questions you might have day and night via email or phone. We are very glad that we worked with him and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy and save a lot during the process. Best part of it was that we got a rebate in the amount of $4200 that we used towards our closing costs.

Ozzie, Cecil Twp. (received buyer rebate of $4,200)

We saved around $4,000 by using Insight Realty. The process was really easy and almost a year later, we have no regrets! My partner and I recommend David Tkacik and Insight Realty to anyone who wants to save some cash on their dream home.

Sarah, Pt. Breeze (received buyer rebate of $5,450)

Dave Tkacik was a great help to me in finding and buying a home. Dave was quick to respond to my emails, text messages and phone calls. His comparable market analysis was thorough, he created a detailed timeline on the next steps once my offer was accepted, and he helped to negotiate with the sellers on findings from the home inspection. In addition, I received a rebate!


I enjoyed working with Dave and I would definitely recommend him to everyone. 

Vlad, Squirrel Hill (received rebate of $6,580)

So glad we found David. He really hit it out of the park after a long, many months-worth of home shopping. Couldn't be happier and will definitely recommend. Thanks!
