From the November issue: In New York’s hyper-competitive real estate world, jumping from brokerage to brokerage is a blood sport for agents.

Several large firms declined to participate, but we reached out to individual brokers to get the scoop on what their firms offer. [more]

    Platinum Properties agents “treated” to a trip to Dubai? Complete bull****. Maybe it was one of their top agent bonuses but agents were by no means treated and was not a perk. Please get your research straight. Starting to doubt the integrity and/or competency of this publication.

    For my last mortgage, i went to a broker.Had the interview about all the legal stuff, what sort of mortgage,how much over how long etc, took me a couple of hours, by the end of which my head was spinning. Went back a week later, to find out that the best deal for me at the moment was… The same bloody deal i was on,with the company i had been paying my mortgage to for 15 years already! I just needed to increase the amount. So, to save yourself a lot of hassle i’d recommend checking with your existing lender first. And about good mortgage services thisguys here –
