First I sleep with the broker, my wife. Second, I can't find a brokerage that I want to belong to and has a value for the commission you give up. Third, I have a unique non-traditional business plan.

Eve Alexander
Buyers Broker of Florida - Orlando, FL
Exclusively Representing ONLY Orlando Home Buyers

1. Other brokerages would not allow me to represent buyers...it was considered taboo.

2.  Brokers did not understand "Buyer Brokerage"

3. I quickly realized if I wanted to practice "exclusive buyer brokerage" correctly, I would have to open up my own office.

SO...I open my own buyer brokerage.
