How it works
I have always offered discounts on commissions for properties that were likely to be less costly or less time consuming, and now I take that to the next level with 11 possible ways to reduce your listing commission. I also have reduced my overhead and streamlined and simplified my business in order to offer the most competitive commissions in town. Most importantly now a home seller can pay a commission that is much more in line with the level of service provided.

There is no reduction in the quality of Service I provide. My clients have full representation from one of the most experienced agents in town. My marketing is however streamlined focusing only on the most productive methods for finding a buyer.
