>> if you're selling the home, looking at the realtor ahead of time is one of the keys. >> not only do you want to get someone you match with but someone who understands the neighborhoods in which you're wanting to look for a home and they can give you good advice about where you're looking to buy. so do your homework. >> some realtors may have you sign a buying contract. >> some of them will ask you to the realtor is looking to give their time and effort to the process and also their expertise. and realtors are one of the few position that is you do a lot of work for not getting paid. some realtors ask for that contract because they don't want to give their time and expertise to someone who is not series. what matters, are they
realtor. and again, some don't. what you want to pay attention to is that you're basically agreeing to work with that realtor. and if you buy something within a certain period of time pay them a commission. and if you end up leaving that and going and working with another realtor, you may still need to pay them that commission. >> that fine print is very, very important. and ask questions if you have a nc what you sign. a lot of the paperwork that realtors ask buyers and sellers to sign is standard language, but you should have the opportunity to lock at it. and make sure you're comfortable with it. >> let's say you're not happy with it, how do you break the agreement? >> start with communication and give them your expectations and follow up in writing and let them know. i feel like this is not working
conversation, follow up in writing so everything is clear. if things are not working on and you need to move on. if it's not working for you, it's probably not working for the realtor either. and you can mutually end the contract. if you're not able to come to a mutual agreement. the next step would be to go to the owner of their firm realtors. but i would say start with talking with them. and get it in writing if you do break that relationship with them. and if you're working with somebody who is their own broker, go to the arizona department of realize or the arizona association of realtors. >> good to see you. >> good to see you too.

they use heat energy in order to stop your car. if you squeeze that, you can see how brakes apply. and when it does that there's a lot of heat that is generated. and brake pads are designed to wear out. and a new pad will be nice and thick like that. and as they start to wear, you can use a tool, oh, look, we still have some meat left on that. they wear in pairs and they the other side is almost all the way worn out. >> okay. getting a look at that. >> when you do a brake inspection you have to take it all the way apart and look at both sides of the equation. some of the time when you're braking you'll feel a little bit of a pickuppization.
