I wanted to share this wonderful post by Kathleen Daniels that truly demonstrates the spirit of cooperation amongst fellow Realtors, even if they work for a competing company, and a great Pay-It -Forward example for us all!
I closed another San Jose Short Sale in Blossom Valley on August 8, 2011. It happened to be a Wachovia Fast Track short sale which paid a $3,000 seller incentive and a 1% bonus to the listing agent if the transaction closed sooner than 30 days from approval.
Because I received a 1% bonus I paid it forward by paying the cooperating broker 1/2% bonus. I truly believe she deserved a bonus too! After all, she did her job and she did it well. I would not have received the bonus without her efforts as well.
I have closed other transactions with this agent. I truly appreciate her professionalism and her quick and timely responses to emails and voice messages. Working a transaction with a true professional is such a priceless pleasure.
I am grateful for the listing; grateful for the buyers' agent; grateful for the bonus paid; and most grateful for the opportunity to pay it forward by sharing the fruits of our labor with the buyer's agent.
