I’m a little surprised you can’t fire your agent after you’ve signed a purchase and sale. It’s been almost a year since I’ve signed my purchase and sale (requiring all of an hour of my agent’s time) and haven’t heard from him since and I’m two days away from closing. $10,000 for an hour of work is a pretty good deal for him. At least now that I work at Redfin I know I won’t make that mistake again – that mistake being the one where you think your agent is ‘free’ since the seller pays for them.
I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!
For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at email@example.com, I'd be happy to help you.
Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.
