Miss Colorado Springs 2020, Sevin Murdock, makes an appearance on Living Local. She speaks from the heart about how “you don’t have to be a pageant princess to represent your community.”
Born and raised in Colorado with familial roots dating back to the late 1800s, Sevin is the epitome of Colorado. She grew up playing hard and getting dirty- hunting, fishing, dirt biking, sleeping under the stars, hiking, white water rafting, climbing, and indulging in every adventure Colorado has to offer. It’s no surprise she found her calling in the art of home ownership, helping countless families relocate to her great state and further assisting them in establishing their roots within the community. Independent and driven, Sevin started her first business at only 9 years old, earning a living wage and learning the art of entrepreneurship. In high school, she went on to run her family’s residential painting company and built it into a general contracting company- adding 5 divisions and learning the art of leadership. Today, Sevin leads a top producing real estate team, flips properties, stands as a nationally recognized realtor, and coaches other realtors on quick paths to success through “educating to sell”. Fear is never a factor for Sevin, but rather an opportunity to challenge industry norms and set a higher standard wherever she can out of the belief that people deserve more. She works diligently to ensure she always has the ability to provide opportunities to others as the community is her motivating factor. Entering into the world of entrepreneurship, general contracting, and real estate at a young age, Sevin quickly learned the necessity of working twice as hard- twice as smart- and being twice as educated. She seeks challenges in every aspect of life and challenges the norm with an unconventional approach that continues to prove successful in every endeavor. Guided by faith, and blessed with success, her moral combat is unwavering “If I can’t do right by all parties and deliver a mutual benefit- it’s not going to happen”. While Sevin is a strong leader, bold, and to the point- she is a true partner and friend to everyone in her life. She will laugh with you, drink with you, advocate for you, and always give you her best while standing in truth.
Kindness goes a long way for Yasmin. Being a person of integrity, loyalty and love, Yasmin keeps herself set at a high standard for life.
Happily married with three children, Yasmin takes pride in family and serving God. Having been a bonus (step) mama to her two oldest children prior to becoming a mama of her own, provided her with the foundation needed to build a home and create memories. In 2019, this family of five decided Colorado was going to be their home. They love to hike, adore the Colorado views and fresh mountain air. As a family, they enjoy a healthy lifestyle, sports and outdoor activities.
Yasmin comes from a European background where she learned how to speak English and adapt to an entirely new environment at age 10. She traveled to many countries over her lifetime and takes pride and appreciates many Cultures. Having been raised in a Military family, Yasmin had to learn to fit into and mold herself to her surroundings at any given time. Being newer to Colorado, she is learning all she can to serve her community and start making a difference where she can.
Yasmin spent her time in the Medical Field for over 15 years while traveling the United States, doing anything from Medical Assisting in Plastic Surgery to Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. Always eager to grow and learn more, Yasmin stepped into Medical Billing and Insurance where structure and time management played a major role.

Most realtors don’t know what they’re doing and that’s a problem... After all, there’s good reason realtors sit on the top 5 list of least trusted professionals. While many factors contribute directly to this... Education is top of mind! This is a forever changing industry where you always have to be learning something new! Through continuing education, hands-on experience, strategic coaching, frequent team training, and industry connections We are able to consistently stay on our feet and ahead of the game to safeguard, empower, and maximize your interests!
In an Industry where transparency is everything, we have come to find it hard to come by, or unfortunately abundant. Realtors proudly sit on the list of top 5 least trusted professions, and it’s no wonder why. Real Estate has become an assembly line, production based process, that demands quantity over quality across the board. From better team splits and fresh opportunities, to the next commission and closing; numbers are everything to everyone. With over 2 million real estate agents in the U.S, the necessity of production is actually a fight for survival. Backed through transparent incentives as simple as commissions, the most identifiable transparency realtors provide to the consumer, is our industry's misguided incentives. To put it simply, numbers speak volumes, and incentives matter. Trust, response time, missed appointments, poor communication, lack of personalization, and unsatisfactory negotiating skills; sit top 5 on the list of disappointed consumer reviews when working with a realtor; trust sitting top of mind at number one. 23% of consumers report they never heard from their broker after closing, accordingly, 34% of buyers would not rehire their realtor. We have all heard the horror stories filled with alternative motives and pressured response time; seldom do we hear of solutions. The SevSells Group understands it is time to redefine industry standards; we hear you and we value the problematic necessity of transparent incentives occurring in our industry.
The SevSells Group has been built to address this issue; we do it starting with the brokers we embody, down to the incentives and qualifications we require and provide.
Finally, we addressed the topic of service, poor service to be specific. Technology, Education, and transparent incentives all flow through service. The SevSells Group embodies a vision of setting higher industry standards through identifying flaws within our industries modern systems, services, and common practices. We look to the data and focus on the facts to develop an adaptive team capable of delivering on the demands of today, while re- instating classic values lost in past. Furthermore, we built The SevSells Group to practice what we preach. Born to re-define today’s traditional real estate experience, we are proud to introduce you to our standard of challenging the norm.
Overall technology in the real estate industry is deficient. From its lack of use and implementation, the industry has deprived its consumers of top-notch service. Simple technology has revolutionized the world with automation and depersonalization in an effort to save time, work smarter, and sell more.
Team model: What if your boss told you they were going to take 50%-70% of every check you earn, give you no benefits, keep an extra $20,000 a year, charge you every month for an office you don’t use, refuse to pay for any of your mandatory monthly platforms, you still have to pay all of your own taxes, require you to compete with over 5,000 people for every “lead” they give you, and you’re not allowed to work with half of the market because they said so... Would you take that job?
Welcome to the die hard “dog eat dog” team industry standard. It’s no secret we disagree with it and work to challenge it at the SevSells team. By providing more to our agents on every level we have found it provides more to our clients every time. Many teams require full commissions while we encourage leveraging them in negotiations when things go south... It's amazing how reducing commissions can keep the transaction together sometimes, buy you that home warranty, or get you that off market deal! When agents have more, they give more... After all, we are in the business of helping people!
Better leads, better incentives, better splits, better education, better negotiation options available.... I guess, simply, we just decided to do it better... because people deserve exactly that.
While money matters, we also provide our agents with the ability to market your property like a true professional... pictures only and MLS input with poor property descriptions are simply unacceptable but unfortunately acceptable as industry standard. Our model is built to ensure we take less, give more, and incentivize to benefit the public and agents alike. And yes, we still have an office for everyone and support staff... we just don’t have desk fees to go along with it.
“What you want, baby you’ve got it!” Seriously though... here’s a quick list of what we do:
Need a ride? We will pick you up from the airport or hotel and introduce you to our beautiful state to find that perfect neighborhood and home you’re searching for.
