declaration of independence





Hightower Realty does not take any commissions, financial or other, in relation to any real estate transaction, from any third party service providers. Nor do we sell or give out our clients' personal information to any third party without express permission.


Hightower Realty is an independent, sole proprietorship business. We are not affiliated in any way with any other real estate brokerage, or with any company providing ancillary real estate services, nor do we offer property management services


In the course of working with our home buyers we often need to recommend third party service providers, such as mortgage brokers, lenders, home inspectors, home insurance providers, title companies, property appraisers and foreign exchange services.


Hightower Realty does not receive commissions from any of these third party service providers. This means that we can make unbiased recommendations based solely on our own experience, recommendations that you can rely on.


Before you choose a buyer's agent to work with you, you should always ask if they or the brokerage that they work for receive any financial benefit from using specific third party providers. In particular, ask if their brokerage has a business relationship with other service providers, such as an in-house mortgage broker or title company. If they do, the recommendations you will get will not be based on what is best for you, but on their company policies and on what is best for them.


Hightower Realty earns a commission from the seller's agent if and when the sale closes. When we say that our buyers pay nothing for our services, we mean exactly that.
