Realtors who don't possess a license to practice law should never play attorney. In Texas our contracts have blank areas referred to as Special Provisions.

A few month's back I helped a pair of super duper clients buy the home of their dreams. They loved it. Every square inch.

When is the last time you heard of a Realtor paying to list someones house? As crazy as it sounds, it's happening. Typically there are two real estate agents working a deal, but the listing agent is usually the one willing and able to negotiate their commission from the seller. A Realtor I know w...
