The problem you are having is the price range. I love working on all price ranges. At best an agent hopes to close on one out of four people we show homes too.

For example in Washington County over a couple of months I put 600 miles and 30 hours in time for one buyer to get a $700 check. If I am lucky and only work with four buyers, showing homes and driving to get this one check. So divide that $700 check by four and get $187.,00.

Good luck to you!
