Buyer Broker Chicagoland is recognizing our active duty, retired military personnel, veterans, reservists, and National Guard, from March 15 to April 15th, by offering a $1,000 commission rebate on their home purchase.

Rick Hauser, Managing Broker / Realtor® for Buyer Broker Chicagoland, and US military vetaran, is extending an offer for a $1,000 commission rebate to active duty and retired military, veterans, reservists, and National Guard personnel. An Exclusive Buyer Brokerage Agreement must be signed by April 15, 2012, and the rebate will be credited to the servicemember when they close on a home.

Buyer Broker Chicagoland made this announcement to coincide with “Joining Forces” -- an initiative created by the federal government designed to bring attention to the unique needs of America’s military families.

The offer is open to active duty and retired military, veterans, reservists, and National Guard personnel looking to buy a home or condo in the Chicago metro area, including Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry and Will counties who become a client and close on a property.

Mr. Hauser, states, “People want to know that they have someone fully on their side – with 100% loyalty. As a veteran, I can relate to what military personnel deal with when they are moving, and I know the best lenders for a variety of loans, including VA loans. We are currently representing a military client based at Great Lakes Illinois who is purchasing a new construction home. We are protecting them in the negotiation phase, the home inspection phase, and all the way to closing. So far, we have saved them over $55,000. We not only save people money on the purchase price, and getting good home inspection credits and fixes, but also by helping them shop for the best lender."

Buyer Broker Chicagoland’s exclusive buyer agency agreement protects buyers by aligning the company’s interests with the buyer’s interests, instead of the opposite - as is typically the case when a traditional brokerage collects the "cooperative compensation" payout, plus any bonuses. Accepting various payouts can lead to home showing biases or “pushing a property” based on the amount of commission paid out, or bonuses. Buyer Broker Chicagoland eliminates home showing biases based on what is being paid out, by contracting with the buyer at a fixed rate, and giving any advertised bonuses, or excess amounts to the client. And clients may opt to have the company make less when their price goes up, and more when their price goes down - thus aligning interests.

For active duty and veterans, Buyer Broker Chicagoland can refer them into the “Welcome Home Heroes program, available to all qualified Illinois veterans, active military, reserves and Illinois National Guard members via the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA.) The program features a $10,000 forgivable loan over two years for down payment and closing cost assistance subject to qualification on income and purchase price limits. The program enhances the existing affordable home loan program, called SmartMove, which provides 3% of the purchase price up to $6,000 for first time homebuyers subject to minimum credit scores.


Buyer Broker Chicagoland has been serving home buyers and investors in the Chicago metro area for almost ten years. The company is always on the home buyer's side, and measures success in dollars saved, not dollars sold. Buyer Broker Chicagoland never “sells” anyone on a property, but rather, points out the negatives, and serves as the buyer’s advocate and coach during the most important transaction of their life. Buyer Broker Chicagoland represents purchasers of property in Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry and Will counties in Illinois. They also actively make referrals to Exclusive Buyer Agents for home buyers that are looking to purchase real estate outside of these counties or outside of Illinois. The company is a member of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA). Exclusive buyer agents are home buyers advocates who focus their skills and knowledge to benefit home buyers exclusively, rather than working for both sellers and buyers. Exclusive Buyer Agents (EBA’s) avoid dual agency conflicts of interest by supporting the fiduciary needs of home buyers only, and give home buyers 100% of their loyalty.
