Another Real Estate Agent I know had asked me some questions about a deal she was working on because she was unclear of what to do next.  I wanted to share this situation with others because in this market this situation may arise with one of your deals.  Lister has property listed for sale.  Buy...

Has anyone else received a call from someone (THEY DID NOT LEAVE THE COMPANY NAME ON MY PHONE) stating they are looking for someone to refer clients to and their referral fee is 90% .  I could not believe that someone would expect me to do all the work for 10% of the offered commission.  I though...
