180 Things a Realtor Does During a Transaction… Earn your Commission

I think that one of the most common questions that a Real Estate agent gets from their client has to do with justifying your commission. As the video, “I am not a Lead” from 1000Watt Consulting states, “I’m happy to pay 6%. Just tell me what I get.”

Well, thanks to a friend I met on ActiveRain, now you have a (very) thorough list to justify your commission. Connie Olson, a Realtor with Realty World in Orange Park, Florida has put together this INCREDIBLE list entitled, “The REALTOR®’S Critical Role in the Real Estate Transaction”. These over 180 points outline everything from pre-listing activities to your part in the negotiation. Although, some of Connie’s points might not apply to us here in Illinois (as an attorney state), I promise you will still find nearly 100 points that should assist you in justifying that commission.

  1. Super comprehensive list, it should be noted that not all 180 will be done on every transaction, but that agents do a lot of diverse services for their clients.
