Why all the huff-and-puff when a consumer mentions "commission rebates"?Ok, I get it. Irrespective of how much you "are in the business because I love to help people", it's your livelihood so "commission rebates" may hit too close to home. But, really?Ok, I get it. Irrespective of how much you "are in the business because I love to help people", it's your livelihood. The topic of "commission rebates" may hit too close to home. But, really?Pushback #1 - "You get what you pay for."Not really. Diligent consumers get what they shop/negotiate for. Does every consumer need every service a REA provides? Nope. And, not all REAs perform at the same level of competence. Shouldn't a diligent consumer determine what services they need, and what value those services have to them?Pushback #2 - You wouldn't ask a doctor to discount their services?Of course not, most consumers use insurance vice paying directly - and the insurance companies negotiate with the doctors. Stolen from another post, but I've seen the insurance statements (the ones showing what the doctor charged, what the insurance paid, and what the insured is liable for?). Also, doctors charge based on the service provided. They don't attempt to charge a single flat rate for all the potential services that they could/might provide.November 23 2012 - US22YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
