Amanda and I are both full time Realtors here in the Fort Wayne area.  We do not draw a salary from our company, Century 21 Bradley.  We are both straight commission. That means a few different things. 1.  We don't collect a paycheck until we close a deal. 2.  Our income can fluctuate at times.  ...
