Just when I think I’ve heard it all I get flabbergasted once again.

When I was doing an intake with a client yesterday who may have sold her home, she told me there was a real estate broker involved.  I ask and she tells me the commission percent, which I remark is the going rate, no more or less. 

My client shares with me that the agent told her this was “the best she could do” because she (agent) hasn’t had a deal close since September and she needs the money to pay her bills.  She would have reduced it if she was doing better, she confided to my client.

I am, by nature, leery that the agent would have dropped below the customary percentage if the market was robust, but can you imagine saying what she did?  I certainly could not fathom telling potential clients my fee was based on how slow the market has been the past two years and how I needed to make a living off their backs!
