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.
Matt , Urbnlivn's publisher, has a love for lofts, floating homes and mid-century moderns.
For years Matt resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be an executive at Redfin but he recently caved in the spring of 2014 and became an agent. If you're interested in working with Matt, drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find Matt on Twitter or skiing.
