Real Estate Services

I am a member of a local board as well as state and the National Association of REALTORs®, to be a member you must operate and adhere to a strict code of ethics.

There are many ways to interact with a client. I work as an Agent for my clients. I will work as a Transaction Broker only in specific situations. In some situations I may need to treat a Buyer or Seller as a Customer.

At the end of the page, I have posted the definitions of these relationships.

  • Competitive Market Analysis- Complimentary
    As your Real Estate Consultant, Whether you are thinking of selling or just curious about your home’s value, I offer this as a complimentary service to homes owners.
  • POV (Professional Opinion Of Value) – $200
    As a Real Estate Consultant, I offer my professional services to attorneys for a small fee.
  • Buyers Agent – Fee is negotiated prior to looking at homes.  In most cases it is paid by fee the seller and listing agent have negotiated.  
    As a Buyers Agent, I am either paid by the listing agent (based on the terms and fee they have negotiated with the Seller) or in some situations where the Sellers does not want to offer a cooperative fee to a buyers agent, a fee is negotiated between myself and the Buyer I am representing.  The listing agents, whether Sellers Agents or Transaction Brokers, typically negotiate a set commission with their Sellers.  The Seller then lets the Listing agent know how much if anything they want to offer as a Co-Op commission to an agent that brings them a buyer.  Having a Buyers agent in your corner allows you to have fair representation throughout the transaction.  
  • Listing Agent: Is paid a negotiated percentage of the purchase price (a commission) that is only paid at closing.
    As your Listing Agent, I am paid a negotiated percentage to list and sell your property.  I am only paid when the property is sold and successfully closed.  This amount will typically come off of the proceeds of the sale of the home.  This percentage if agreed on by the Seller is typically shared/split with any cooperating broker bringing a buyer.

    *The above commission fee structure mentioned above reflects the most current national and state changes to the Real Estate industry.  

Intuitive Services

House Blessings/Clearings – $100

This service is considered on a case by case situation.  Prices start at $100 an hour. There are many variations that can be done so a consultation over the phone will need to take place prior to setting an appointment. 

As an Intuitive, Reiki III Master, Universal White Time Healer, and Ordained Minister, I use a variety of methods when blessing and clearing a property of its energy.  To learn more see my post on the Top 4 Reasons to have your home blessed.

As a seller’s agent (or listing agent) the agent works solely on behalf of the seller to promote the interests of the seller with the utmost good faith, loyalty and fidelity. The agent negotiates on behalf of and acts as an advocate for the seller.

A separate written listing agreement is required which sets forth the duties and obligations of the broker and the seller.
