I have an office in South Gate and know the area well. As realtors our job is to find a property and negotiate the best deal for you, the client. Now if you want to go to an auction, the guidelines are different there. There is usually a minimum bid that the bank is looking for and won't sell if it doesn't get to that price. A realtors job at that point is to make sure that all documents needed are delivered to you the buyer and that everything is in order, the purchase price is up to the auction and bank.
Please let me know if I can be of help to you.
