Re: buyer's broker payment questions

Stumble - a refreshing outlook for sure. That scenario didn't exist here 18 years ago when I quit yacht brokerage after 22 years. That's one of the primary reasons I quit, disappointment with an industry I equated to the wild west. There was a broker in Vancouver, one in Halifax & a couple in Great Lakes area I held in high esteem. The rest were kinda status quo people. Sadly, real estate has turned out to be similar. Although regulated (self-regulating) in Ontario, when you get on the street there are too many agents working part time and not focused on their careers, eeking it out from deal to deal, and either unfamiliar with their duties to clients or not overly concerned about them.
