    Real Estate Brokers, Broker Price Opinions and Comparative Market Analyses

    in Legal

    The Illinois Real Estate License Act of 2000 now authorizes real estate brokers to issue Broker Price Opinions (BPOs) and Comparative Market Analyses (CMAs) in connection with the sale or rental of real estate. It also exempts licensed real estate brokers from the Real Estate Appraiser Licensing Act of 2002 when they are issuing BPOs and CMAs for no compensation other than in connection with the sale or rental of real estate. This podcast with attorney Steve Migala will explore the legislative changes to this Act as well as BPOs and CMAs generally.

    Are you confident in your negotiation tactics with brokers? Do you understand the market well enough to sell your services? What is the difference between haggling and negotiation?

Price can quickly dominate the conversation and emotions take over. We will talk about how you can overcome these weaknesses and negotiate a better rate while building strong business relationships. The goal of this show will be to help new carriers feel comfortable in their first interactions with brokers and help experienced carriers refine their skills!

    If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!


    Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’.  The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States.  It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos.  The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.


    The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten
