I will throw my name in the hat!
I am a full time agent residing in Northbrook. Commissions are always negotiable. Just make sure that you meet with a few agents to ensure that you are getting full services with the reduced costs. Feel free to call or email with any questions.
Please contact me directly to discuss your listing situation. I am flexible as far as commission is concerned. The most important for you now is to find a real estate professional who you will trust and feel comfortable with.
I would not make any connection between commission paid and highest price negotiated with a seller.
I would only compare the "price paid" and "level of service provided". Listing with agent that promises the highest sale price may lead you into overpriced listing situation.
Be realistic and hire an "aggressive" agent who will price your property in connection with current market.
