By utilizing the Open Listings platform and network of on-demand local agents, homebuyers also receive a 50% refund on their agent's commission. The site boasts mid century modern and notable architectural homes for sale by greats like Donald Wexler, William Krisel, or Albert Frey, to name a few.

"We're excited to bring Open Listings to Palm Springs and give modern buyers a leg up with our app and savings," said Judd Schoenholtz, CEO and co-founder of Open Listings.

"We now have nearly one million homebuyers shopping with us each month," added Schoenholtz. "Our software makes an overly complicated process easy. Then, the best agents take homebuyers through the last mile of closing, which makes it possible to offer a refund 3-4 times more than other online brokerages."
