I agree with you 100%. My agreement states what I will do and what I expect the client to do. Everything is there in black and white. I also have an “escape clause” in the agreement that says… if for any reason you aren’t satisfied with my performance or aren’t happy with anything whatsoever… all you need to do is send a letter stating that you aren’t happy and the buyer’s agreement will be terminated the same day the letter is received. No questions asked.
This usually helps put the client at ease and shows him/her that I will work my butt off for them.
And just to point out one other thing… I do think that asking for 3% guaranteed is way too much. My max. is $950. And I’ve never had anyone take me up on the offer to terminate the agreement.
