Many listing agents will discount their compensation.

Most buyer agents do not and know how to penalize the seller and listing agent for at temps at imposing reduced compensation.

Most listing agents are committed to perpetual price beat down of the owner.

Most buyer agents are in the 90 day market with quicker transaction times and less overhead.

The astute buyer agent knows if the listing agent is not present for the showing THE buyer agent is in control of the game.

The only game in town. Only if you want to believe it to be true.

I am a listing agent. However, I am not so foolish as to think their is only one game in play.  It is understandable that we place greatest faith in what we know and hear most often repeated.

I think so and especially when they are well-priced and the sellers are motivated.

Don't kid yourself.

No one whines to me that their house isn't selling.

I don't have to smile at any seller and pretend how "wonderful" the house is.

I don't have to open up houses for agents that have not qualified their buyers.

I can be totally honest.

My clients value my opinon and appreciate my time.

My phone only rings when it is a client, or a potential one. 

100% of my buyers buy a property...usually within days.

I never have to discount my commission and  make more than you think.
