That is such a loaded question, at least from an agent's view point. One can interpret it in so many ways... like "She charged me 8%, what did she charge you?", maybe she is charging a FLAT RATE fee I heard... What if she sells it in one day? What if she sells it in 8 months? Is she offereing any incentives from that commission to a selling agent? See what I mean... we can make up a ton of questions... regarding what seems to be a simple question.

Why are other agents being asked to tell you what Jenny Ames charges?! Just wondering. Trulia isn't the place to ask questions about specific agents and their business. Contact her directly if you're interested in working with her.

Depending on what you are looking for, check with her to find out her commission. You should realize that the most important thing is to get your home sold, don't focus as much on the commission but rather that your home sells for top dollar in this market. The most common commission structure is 5%-6%.

I have a structure that allows you to pick the commission, if you are interested I would be more than happy to explain it to you.

You would have to check with her since there's no standard rate. Doesn't hurt to check with a few agents, if you want the best bang for your buck give me a call.

You can always call her at her Coldwell Banker office and ask - but I am sure you already know that or you wouldn't have posed the question here. For whatever reason if you don't want to call her, I would gladly explain to you how a typical commission structure works and what type of services you should expect. Please feel free to drop me an email or give me a call.

But I can tell you that we charge on a sliding scale and are full service. The more expensive the property the lower the %.
