Hi, I was just wondering if it's a good idea to have a realtor (ABR) working for me that is in the same company as the listing realtor (just as an example, both working at Coldwell or some other company, etc.). I was thinking about negotiating on a house and was wondering if I should worry about that before I express my intent. I would appreciate any knowledge or suggestions more experienced members may have on dealing with and selecting a good realtor in Houston. As a side note, I've noticed that during my search for a home, realtors sometimes shy away from certain properties without giving any reason although it's a good property. For example, when I suggested a property I liked and considered, she told me I could do better and just brushed it off and showed me other properties. Do realtors make more for certain properties or have secret incentives. Thanks for any help and thoughts.
