Unbelievable but True
The National Association of Realtors (almost all agents are members) has developed a detailed set of guidelines intended to keep the real estate business orderly. One facet of these guidelines is that, in certain situations, they get to decide which agent gets paid for a real estate transaction. The legal concept is called "procuring cause." To make a long sad story really short, I have done entire transactions - from writing the offer and attending to every detail, right through to closing and even getting paid - only to have my entire commission awarded to an agent who had shown the home first to my clients who were just trying to "save me some trouble." So please, see homes only with me. This includes open house events. Thanks for your consideration and understanding.
