Voted Best Real Estate Company in SLO County in the 2017 New Times Reader Poll

I received an unsolicited email from a new home developer promoting a Realtor commission program bonus. I thought I’d include it here to show how new home developers market to Realtors in a changing market. Most new homes do not go into the MLS system so Realtors do not get paid commission if they bring a Buyer. Some developers do have referral fees if the Realtor accompanies the Buyer the first time they visit the Sales showroom office.

If finding a Buyer is getting tougher, I’ll probably get more of these type of emails….
