Fact: Real estate brokers’ commission rates are not regulated in any state and are ALWAYS 100% negotiable.

When you decide to sell your house, if you are like most people, you will want to hire — or at least consider hiring — a real estate agent to handle the process.

Surprisingly, many people think that real estate brokerage commission rates are “set” in their area and they have to pay a specific percentage of the sales price to the agent in order to get their services. This is absolutely not the case.  In fact, you can pay whatever you and the agent have agreed upon.

What is a “Fair” amount to pay for real estate commission?

Many people hear the word “discount” company instead of a “traditional” company but (actually, since commissions

The process of buying and selling your home is a long and complicated process, but thanks to Anne and Shane our experience was great. We are very pleased with the results Anne and Shane provided, including their professional service with a personal touch. It took us over a year to find our perfect home and throughout the whole process they were patient, accommodating and flexible.

After this experience we knew we wanted to continue working with them to sell our former house. They knew the market and they provided professional advice to help us prepare for the sale. Not surprisingly, they delivered once again and sold our house after only 5 days on the market. We will

Welcome To The Cascade Team Jeff Japar!

The Pacific Northwest is home to me. I was born and raised in the Bothell/Woodinville area. I grew up riding my bicycle in the streets, and playing outside with the neighborhood kids. I look back at my childhood in this place with fond remembrance and a deeply rooted sense of home. I have a vested, personal interest in shaping my community by building neighborhoods where families grow, play and bond. My family and I currently live in Granite Falls. We love living nestled in the evergreens at the entrance to the Mountain Loop. Nothing beats sipping hot coffee on the deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains. We spend our free time roaming the logging roads and trails with our dogs, or kayaking on any

Today was the 1st day of classes for the "New Market Reality" course. Thank you to everyone who could attend and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone signed up for tomorrow as well!

Not that long ago, real estate agents were in the business of providing information. In fact, you can probably remember a time when all real estate professionals did—the only value we thought we had—was giving information.

What’s for sale, what’s on the market, what’s the pricing of similar homes, etc.

Back then, to protect our value, we locked away this information in a fortress called the MLS. If any person outside of the real estate business tried to reach into our fortress and grab a slice of that data, we were trained, like guardians outside the gates, to

I am an active real estate investor and also work with the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services. My real estate investment business has inspired me to advance my career in real estate.

Welcome To The Cascade Team Gresia Bratton!


My passion in real estate was ignited through my own personal experience upon acquiring and developing a property to build a home for my family.

The entire process was both rigorous and challenging; requiring lucrative attention to the details and yet, incredibly rewarding. My background in Banking/Finance, Residential Property Management, and Case Management had equipped me with the much needed experience and relentless hunger for excellence to break ground!

Certainly this experience paved the way to a fundamental understanding of why it is all about you, the client! I have a genuine drive to understand my clients on their terms which naturally allows me to apply the most methodical and
