Well I never said she didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a kind of guy who try to talk about the positive things about other people. However, it appears that in this world where anything I say can and will be used against me, sometimes I need to be frank and honest as well: Technically, She falsely advertised her marketing plan and mislead me into thinking that she’s going to do much more than my previous agent. It’s like, I don’t see what she’s doing more that could justify a $15000 extra comissh.
“heavy marketing” is such a broad term. To be honest, she hasn’t done anything that’s effectively more than what other agents do for 1% or 1.5%.
One notable thing is that the agent-client booklet she gave me promised she will do TV/Radio ads but she didn’t. Even those who go with 1% place picture ads in the local paper but all she did was place a tiny ad with nothing else. I’ve posted to the paper before myself and know that it doesn’t cost much at all.
If I’ve only listed 3 weeks with her, how much should I expect to shell out?? She indicated something like Remaxx fee and MRIS fee. An agent-friend told me that those charges are complete “BS” charges and that I don’t need to pay those because it’s their cost of doing business. Furthermore, hardly any other agents charge it.
Oh and one more thing, REMIND ME NOT TO USE REMAXX ALLEGIENCE NEXT TIME!!!
