If you're buying a property below $50k you may have difficulty finding a Realtor because some may actually lose money on the transaction or only make a minimal amount of money. Realtors must pay a share to their broker and many pay 50% or a minimum $300 per transaction. On a $50k deal with 2.5% commission and another $300 collected by the listing agent from the buyer's agent the net commission (before the broker's split) would be $950. Then if that gets split with the broker you're talking about $475. That may not pay the Realtors gas fees for a month and if she has to cart you around showing short sale properties for months on end until she finally gets paid after waiting 6 months... Sorry to be so blunt but most Realtors cannot afford to work with buiyers buying under $75k.
Now if you're buying above $100k you shouldn't have a problem finding many Realtors who will benefit from working with you.
In the big picture, I wouldn't lose a deal over $295!
I really don't know the circumstances but try not to be too hard on your ex-realtor. She probably does not have a choice since she works for a company that charges a fee. I have seen many clients walk away from a realtor for the same reason and I completely understand. I am happy to say that my company does not charge a fee and I would not be working with them if they did. If you still want to have active Delray properties emailed to you or if you are completely happy with the property that you have chosen I would be happy to represent you.Good luck either way.

I do not charge any fees to buyers. And I work like 'crazy' to get my buyers the best price, no matter what the price point- be it $400,000 or $40,000.

I would be most happy to work with you as your representative and not charge an administrative fee. There are many opportunities in the Delray area condominium market and I specialize in not only helping buyers identify the best properties but also in negotiating the absolute best pricing and terms.
If you have been working with an agent on a particular property you need to continue working with them as they are the procurring cause on that transaction. However, if you would like to strat fresh with someone who will provide you the very highest level of service and have your best interest at heart please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
Always at Your Service,

Many agents will waive the "admin fee" even though their companies have one.
If you have not yet made other arrangements give me a call and I will be happy to work with you. I NEVER, EVER charge my customers and admin fee.
