Real Estate Q. Are you a "Broker of Record" for a RE company that you are not an owner of? Beyond the oversight of all licensees, and managing the details of the trust fund(s) how do you deal with E&O costs? What part of them fall to you? I ask because I am in negotiations with an agent who is opening her own office. Not a corporation yet. Thank You!

Real Estate Q. Who are the regional 100% commission offices in the SF Bay Area? RealtyOne Group has a growing presence here, and wondering who other plays might be worth considering for hanging my license. I don't need all kinds of opinions on commission split models or hybrid models...I won't do a traditional split model and have been with both Realty Executives and Keller Williams in the past, but that doesn't work for me since I'm starting back up part time (after 10 years full time and 4 years hiatus from the RE biz). eBroker options are out there but would prefer a Norcal company.

Real Estate Q. My husband and I just purchased a fixer house for our boys to remodel this summer. I am considering gifting the house to the boys to use as a primary residence while they remodel it. After 2 years they can sell it without capital gains. Am I missing something here? The boys are college age students and could live there for 2 years. When they sell it, any gain will be untamable....correct?

Real Estate Q. My father recently passed leaving behind 2 properties for my mother who is beneficiary. There was a living trust drafted several years ago naming my mother beneficiary and then myself after my mother. As a result of her loss, my mother's health has taken a turn for the worst and I fear she soon may not be able to take care of her own finances. I obtained POA for her in order to help her thru. I have 2 questions 1) How can I transfer title over from my mother to me on the properties to avoid any future legal issues. and 2) I have an older sister who was legally disenherited from the living trust and all assets named within, can she later come back to claim any rights? Thank You, Concerned Daughter

Real Estate Q. We decided to go to different broker and my previous broker got mad at us. He said we have signed a contract with the realtor and the realtor is his sister. We never new that we signed a contract because they never gave us a copy. Now we are trying to get the copy but they keep coming up with excuses. They don't want to give us a copy of a contract that we never new we signed.
