$15 Members / $30 Non Members / NO CE CREDIT

When do you negotiate during a real estate transaction? Most agents think negotiations only
happen during the contract process. There are dozens of negotiations that happen from the
time you meet the buyer or seller until closing. We will look at many of these negotiating
opportunities and help you to identify “signals” to learn how to better read your clients, co-op
agents, lenders, home inspectors and maybe the in-laws. We’ll get you to closing with a lot less
stress and probably more money in your pocket. Join us as we become better negotiators in all
aspects of life!
