I am so happy to have been able to represent the buyers in this one of a kind property in Atascadero. 7210 Valle, Atascadero California provided nearly 2 acres of private property on a hilltop in Atascadero. The property included a MASSIVE garage/shop/storage space and a unique home. A large guest house/suite and had 360 degree views from the entire estate. It is going to be AMAZING to watch the transformation of the home as they make it their very own. Contact me to be your Realtor when you look to buy and purchase your new home or investment property. Or sell your current house or investment property. I will help you find the perfect home and work hard as your buyers agent. As well as list your home, market the property and negotiate for the best possible price! Call me for an interview, you will not regret it! Taylor North, The North Star of Real Estate.

SUPPORT YOUR REALTOR!! There is a lot of talk in the news about real estate agent commissions. We LOVE what we do and we do it because we LOVE helping people but there is almost always a huge misconception on what we do and how we get paid. It's not a secret so here ya go...😊 The average FULL TIME REALTOR’S earnings last year was $31,900 @ 40+ hours a week. (Notice I wrote full time 40+ hours not 0-20 hours a week) which is well below the living wage. As a REALTOR we do not get paid an hourly wage or salary and we only get paid if we sell a home and it closes. We can only get paid by broker to broker. As an agent we could work with someone days, weeks, months, or years with no guarantee of a sale ever. Essentially we wake up each day unemployed, going on job Interviews, and we deal with constant rejection. We dedicate time away from family, use our time, gas, pay for babysitters, miss dinner and weekends and rarely take vacations. We are on 24/7! We constantly need to be on, or we could miss an opportunity. Once we do close a home, half goes to the other person's agent from the remaining half. We have lots of upfront expenses that must be paid out before we even get paid: Broker Splits and Fees Office rent and utilities MLS Fees NAR Fees Local Association Fees E&O Business Insurance Extended Auto Insurance Self-Employment Tax State Licensing Fees Advertising Fees Showing Service Fees Website Fees Assistant's Salaries Showing partners Transaction coordinator Yard Signs Photographers Videographers Office Supplies Business Cards Property Flyers Electronic Lockboxes Continued RE Education Legal Fees Gas Income taxes are not taken out so we have to put that aside around 25-30%. Don’t forget health insurance if we don’t have a spouse who provides it. As a listing agent we have lots of tasks; far more than just selling a home. 1. Prepare Listing Presentation for Sellers 2.
