Rebate Texas LLC dba Southern Homes is a Broker firm licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), under individual broker W. David Beutel.

My aim in business is to help savvy Texans Save Thousands on Real Estate — and to make a reasonable profit at the same time.  I follow the late Zig Ziglar’s edict that you can have whatever you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want in life.  I have saved my clients over $1,900,000, in the form of reduced listing commissions and buyer rebates at closing, while providing a high level of service for well-prepared, low-maintenance clients. db bricks for email sig
