If the REALTOR is the one who called, then “WHY”, would you want her out of the picture?
You may have just stumbled on a good Realtor.
And believe me, finding a Realtor/Agent/Broker who will actually entertain the idea of anything creative is a good thing, and far and few between.
She is open to the idea, otherwise she would not have called you.
If you are concerned with how the realtor will get paid, then talk to her about it.
Be honest, and tell her you can do the deal, but that she will not get paid until the option is excercised, or you find a T/B’er with enough cash to pay the comissions.
The seller may even have enough to cover that.
Paying the realtor is for the seller to do anyway.
You just never know until you try.
