Finder's Fees

Fees paid to licensed associates/brokers for property sales are calculated in steps, with a maximum fee within specific sale price ranges.  The Finder’s Fee steps reflect findings of a comprehensive review of standard practices and fee structures currently being used by other municipalities and developer/owners. The fee structure ensures consistency, transparency and our duty to represent the best interests of the citizens. 
When the associate/broker is a fully active participant in the negotiations and acts as the point of contact for the transaction, Finder’s Fees will follow calculations on the chart below. 
As always, associates/brokers who are also directors or shareholders of the company purchasing the property will not be eligible for any type of fee from The City.
