Somereal estate brokers have increasingly begun to compete for customersby offering cash rebates or other inducements to home buyers andsellers. Rebates that go directly to buyers or sellers lower costs onboth sides of the transaction. Cash rebates are usually calculated assome fraction of the broker’s commission and can result inthousands of dollars being returned to the consumer.

THATTRADITIONAL REALTORS DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW….
Talkingabout lowering or sharing commissions in the real estate industry isa rather taboo topic. The industry standard allows both the buyer’sand seller’s real estate agent to accept 3% commission on the saleor purchase of a new home. Although sharing the commission with abuyer or seller is perfectly legal in the state of Maryland, mostreal estate brokers would rather not. Why? It’s obvious, they wantto keep the full 3% for themselves and that’s fine, except that inmany cases, the more educated homebuyer has already done most of thelegwork and has already identified areas, neighborhoods, builders andsometimes have even zeroed in on homes of interest. All of this hardwork on the buyer’s part makes my job very easy. Once we find theright home, I negotiate with the seller, or builder review contractsand advise throughout the process. Because my buyers have done somuch of the work already, I’m able to in turn, share my commissionwith my buyers. I honestly feel that they deserve it

"George Schiaffino is a powerful influence in the real estate industry and his ability to motivate others is contagious! I have worked with George for several years and I find his vision and desire to succeed truly inspirational. I find myself saying " he's absolutely right, we can do it!"
Not only is George an impressive guy, he is an honest one. In today's workplace, that is a rare quality and one that I truly respect. He values people and connects with others to make a lasting impression and a forever friend. I would be remiss if I did not add that George adds humor to mundane situations which makes working together great fun!
My office has worked with George for several years and I would highly recommend his service without reservation.
