Top agents typically will not negotiate rates one on one. When you ask for a rebate you represent only one client. When our organization negotiates with an agent, we represent many well-qualified buyers and sellers. Paying a referral fee is standard business practice for agents. In this case, the referral fee is simply paid to the client.
Many of the agents that advertise rebates or discount listing are part-time or inexperienced agents. We match you with a top agent to ensure you get quality service from a knowledgeable professional. Using a bad agent could cost you thousands more.
Agents spend time and money searching for new clients. We bring financially qualified buyers that are educated in the home buying process to agents in a competitive market. Under these circumstances a rebate or discount on the listing is a win-win proposition for both agent and the client.
