The NWMLS is the primary tool agents use to find a property when they have a buyer, it is used by all agents whether it is a traditional listing or a Flat Fee listing. The buyer's office commission amount offered is required by the NWMLS along with the detailed information about the home including pictures. Your advantage is the increased exposure to buyers. Our average flat fee customers save over $10,000. In recent years the NWMLS has made their data available to many local and national real estate internet sites. By listing your property on the NWMLS you will gain this increased exposure which is accessible to everyone who is in the market to buy a home.
You will be contacted directly by all buyers and agents with buyers who would be interested in seeing your home. The NWMLS requires to show our office information, but agents will be instructed to call you before they show your property. If agents or buyers contact us, they will be referred to you.

MySecretAgent.com has become aware of a trend that takes advantage of many first time homeowners and senior citizens called predatory lending. Take a moment to educate yourself so you will not become a victim.
Predatory lending is the practice of lenders, mortgage brokers and/or appraisers who use misleading appraisals to make the value of a home seem higher then it really is. There are many strategies lenders may use such as:
- Promote buyers to lie about their income to get a loan
- Lenders purposely giving out more money then a borrower can afford
- Steering- charge high intrest rates based on their race, color or national origin and not on their credit history
- Charge fees for unnecessary products or services
- Influence borrowers to accept high risk loans
- Convince homeowners to refinance over and over when there is no benefit to the borrower
