A Message from Tom Schwenk - Broker/Owner

There is a lot of discussion about realtor commissions following the National Association of Realtors (NAR) settlement.

We all have questions and there will more more change on the horizon as realtors, the Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and lenders all respond. I’ve written a message for my clients that encapsulates my thoughts to date. I believe in clear and open communication and will provide updates as I know more. You can read my thoughts here.

One thing I’m certain of, in this time of change it is more important than ever to work with a licensed professional who has your best interests at heart!
