Clients participating in the Leslie Lerner commission rebate program will be provided the same first-class, friendly service as someone not receiving a rebate.

Commission rates in Texas are not set and vary depending on the individual property owner. A Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC Service Agreement outlining the commission/rebate structure must be signed by all individuals before listing a home and/or any showings take place. Additionally, if buying a home, a Buyer/Tenant Representation Agreement must be signed. If client requests agent to preview a listing, this will be recorded as a showing. All clients that are referred to Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC by another broker/agent and/or relocation company requesting a referral fee will not be able to participate in the flat fee listing or rebate program. Any bonuses or incentives offered to Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC as a result of selling or leasing a home are not included in this rebate program. All additional monies paid to Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC, over and above the Buyer’s Agent commission, are the sole property of Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC and will not be rebated back to the client. Foreclosures and short sales are not included in the rebate program. The Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC rebate program and flat fee listing service is only available in Texas where permitted under law and must be an approved practice by all financial parties involved. Please contact an attorney or accountant for legal and financial matters. There may be tax ramifications when participating in the rebate program. Leslie Lerner Properties, LLC is happy to show our listings to buyers that are not represented by other agents.
