Born and lived all my life here in Washington State. Although the majority of my years have been spent on the west side of the mountains, I recently moved to the dry side (east side of the Cascades). I have opened up my office smack dab in the middle of the best Real Estate in the State.
I have an AA in Paralegal, which is very helpful in this contract laden industry. I do not flinch. I have decided that I can list and sell properties for a 3% to 4% commission. In cases where the buyer uses me, when purchaseing property listed at 6% sales commission, I will include a portion of my commission toward their closing costs or apply it directly to the purchase price.
