I am a real estate broker in Washington State, my commission agreement is 100% paid to me minus B&O and transaction fee.

A few agents got together and formed an entity for lead generation, separate business name and tax number. The agreement allows for you to withdraw at anytime by choice, effective on day of notice of written receipt.

When I gave my notice, the office manager (who keeps the books for both entities) took $2500.00 without my consent and no written explanation out of my commission check.

Again these are two separate entities with two separate contracts - can the office manager do this legally?

There are many brokerages that offer discounts to veterans and servicemembers and may not charge anything at all to sell their home. If you are a teacher, servicemember, veteran, first responder, or nurse you might qualify for one of these programs in Texas. Your best bet is to do a thorough search for a real estate brokerage that offers a Sell for Free program.

Consider these questions: What is the cost to you? Is it free? Is it flat fee? What services are provided? Are they providing a full service with negotiations? Are there any hidden fees or obligations? Do they provide pro photos, and do open houses?

If you fall into one of those categories to qualify, you can save thousands in fees. I would be happy to point you in the direction of a professional who can answer those questions for you. Don't hesitate to reach out.

Yes, you can get a mortage. First things first, talk to a lender and see exactly what you and your wife can qualify for in a FHA loan. Once you know what you can do, then call me......I will find you a home within your qualifications!

Make this a great day,

Yes, you can get an fha loan as some lenders lend lower than 600. I would suggest that you talk to a lender or local realtor to assist you.

Your best bet is paying down any revolving credit cards. Or getting a secured credit card and keeping the balance as low as possible. We provide FHA/VA loans all the way down to a 580 fico. As a licensed real estate broker and mortgage broker over 10 years i can answer any questions you have throughout the process.
