How do I find home staging clients? Develop a portfolio of your work — look at listings online that you think could benefit from your help (ie vacant listings) and contact the listing broker with an offer to help. Do it for low or no fee to get started, develop a...

paying commissions

Can anyone just take their own listing when selling their house instead of paying commission fees to an agent/real-estate broker (US)? You cannot “take your own listing” per se, as that is the job of a duly licensed real estate agent or broker. However, you can offer...

direct communications

Is it considered acceptable for the seller of a home to directly communicate with the buyer during the negotiations and closing process? If the seller is representing him/her/themselves, then yes, as a For Sale By Owner, by definition, the Seller will communicate...

I love this question. I can’t speak for all agents, but I’ve been an agent for a long time, so I’ve had a long time to think about this. The number one thing that I want professionally, is clients who respect my time and the professional boundaries of what I actually...

I would have to say the biggest change in real estate is reflective of the overall cultural change to a “self service” mentality. Every person now seems to think they are an expert in everything! Need an oil change? Google it. Need to repair your printer? Google it....
