So typically our fees are paid by the listing agent not our client. A huge benefit to you.

If you choose you can pay us a monthly consulting fee and our commissions are then refunded back at closing of the lease or sale depending on the time commitment and complexity of the requirement and how sure the company is that this lease, purchase or renewal is going forward.
