    I do have to agree that Redfin provides an incredible service, especially with regards to the listing browsing experience. The majority of retail buyers are better off using Redfin then trying to wheel and deal on their own, that's for certain.

    Blow up your ego's some more while forgetting all about the people who helped you get where you are….kick them in the ass and slam the door on the way out….

    the concept is great. i do the same with commissions however the use of the “field agent” just showing a home takes away from the relationship between buyer and agent which really hurts the buyer in the long run. a good agent will ask questions to help the buyer understand and confirm what they really want or don't want rather than just look at a home with one agent one day and another agent the next. this relationship builds a real caring relationship for the agent and the agent then goes on a mission to find the perfect home for the buyer without the buyer having to do all the work and possibly missing some great homes in the process due to the buyer “having a life” and not spending every minute of the day on the computer searching. sure search criteria helps when programmed however it also eliminates homes the agent could see would be a perfect match with a few alterations and/or imagination which is ultimately the case most of the time. having to talk to different people throughout the process with looking, financing etc would get “detached” and confusing and really make the homebuying process more difficult. the agent should do it all. that's what we get paid to do and my clients are not just a business deal for me..they're people i really care about. my minimun is $3000 so i can help lower end buyers and those are the first time homebuyers. this 5500 minimum is for move up buyers…at least in pierce county where i do a lot of business…king too, though. been doing this for 20 years. top sales agent in pierce county.
