Most home sellers believe that Realtors are overpaid. My fee schedule proves it.

Realtor selling tools are mostly automated. Listing agents do very little work to sell a house and few are qualified to engage in legal negotiations. Scheduling appointments with other agents is completely automated and is done through automatic texts to the clients. I’ll put your house on the MLS, Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and the IDX sites for free (I only charge for my legal services). When you work with me, you get a lawyer helping you negotiate your transaction all the way up to closing for far less than a Realtor. I work on homes of all values. In comparison, agents from large firms are so conflicted by dual agency (the same broker represents the buyer and seller) that they are legally prohibited from advocating, negotiating or providing advice. The below examples demonstrate the savings you could see working with me.
No Hogs Here
If the buyer is unrepresented, brokerage firms still charge you the buyer broker fee. My fee stays the same. Brokerage firms have a huge financial incentive to limit the marketing of your house to increase the chances of finding a buyer in-house. If that happens, the broker will “hog” (their term of art, not mine) the commission normally paid to the buyer broker. Brokerage firms could not be more financially misaligned with their clients’ best interests. As a result, many brokerage firms limit the market exposure of your house. “Coming Soon” (also known as pocket listings) are one example. Another example is when firms intentionally don’t list your property on Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com. When you work with me, that savings goes to you and I have no financial incentive to work against you.
