My name is James E. Glasgow (Jim) I am a licensed Realtor in Texas. I have more then three decades of real-estate experience. Experience with single family rentals, apartments, land, mini storage, office buildings, notes, real estate syndication and partnerships. In addition my team of real estate professionals, brokers, property managers, real estate attorneys, are available as needed.
We handle all of the required disclosures that are required under Texas law, (which are numerous), so that your sale does not come back later as a dispute. We deal with all the various people involved in a transaction as the issues come up and get resolved.
You can now enjoy all the benefits that come with real estate investing while minimizing the typical risks and hassles. Towards Wealth has developed a better way for you to maximize your cash flow through investing in income producing property.
When you sell a property, you interview brokers, pick one and give them an exclusive right to represent you in the sale of your property. Why should buying a property be any different?
Typically, buyers go from on-line ad, to another on-line ad calling different brokers about their listings. They tell each broker about their needs and expect that broker to call them first when he or she finds a suitable property.
Why not instead interview these brokers and then pick one to work with? Sign an exclusive Buyer-Broker agreement with that person and let them go to work for you. That agent will perform with the knowledge that you are working as a team and that when you buy he will get paid. It is worth his time to explore every possible lead in locating a building for you. We would like to be your broker.
Almost always the Seller pays the real estate commission in a sale, typically one-half to the Listing agent and one-half to the Selling agent. With a Buyer-Broker agreement you agree to pay your agent his portion of the commission (usually 2.5%) on a transaction when there is no commission being paid by the seller or he is offering a reduced commission. You guarantee that your broker will be paid 2.5% (less whatever the seller pays). In most transactions, there is no additional cost to you.
With this agreement, your agent can go after properties that you would not normally hear about; unlisted properties or properties that do not have a commission built into the pricing. If you must pay the commission or a part of it, you will know this before you make your offer and you can adjust your offering price accordingly. The idea is you are looking at properties that you might not otherwise have known about.
Most importantly you have an agent who knows income property investing, an agent that is going beyond the norm to locate a income property for you because you have given him the written assurance that he will get paid if successful. Call us, for help in find a profitable property for you
Sometimes I may represent both the seller and the buyer in a transactions, it is more typical that two agents will be involved in the sale (myself representing you the seller, and another agent representing the buyer).
We want to get your properties story out to all the real estate agents and potential buyers that might have an interest in your property and provide detailed information that will sell them on your property.

Showings – Potential buyers are pre-qualified for a mortgage before being escorted through your property. a record is kept of all showings, by date, time, agent, etc. With the exception of open houses and then we hand record the potential buyers.
These exposure techniques usually result in a sale, the highest price is obtained by the coordination of all the efforts timed to the property’s introduction to the market. Three things effect the timeliness of a sale, properly pricing the home, the property condition, and exposure in the market place to qualified buyers.
