    Any tom dick harry is a real estate agent in Pune. I had gone to check a property in Park Street and the agent looked like some sadak chaap idiot. And he wanted 2% for the deal as well

      Well same happened to me, I was called by some guy; and he was speaking in English nicely and all, he said he is selling at 2600 psft at Wakad and insisted me to come over site; he praised all that project. When I went 2 BHK cost was quoted 47 lakhs ; construction quality of sample flat was also bad, cracks, water seepage; cheap furnishing was visible; and that guy did look like a school drop out less than 19 years age

          If you ask any sadak chhap, un-employed boy in pune what is he doing for earning, 75% chances are that he will be a real estate agent.

          Again when you interact with then, they will always get calls from some prospective buyers. You will also hear stories from them about closing deals of few crores during lask week or so.

          All of them are crap.

              There is an RE agents association called EAAP. http://www.eaapune.org/
              I dont know if this is any good or any agents are good/useful.
              But it seems most agents associate with this one are long-timer than the tom-dick-harry kind of agents. But beware, this just does not tell that they are good.

                  Brokers in North America charge upto 5% of the total sale cost. But their costs are also high:
                  - They are all certified and have to take a license to operate.
                  - They are associated with some big broking companies (So they have to pay part of revenue - upto 40%)
                  - They take pics thru professional photographer.
                  - Publish, advertise, arrange for open houses etc.
                  - As the owner cannot be in the house when a prospective buyer is inspecting the house, the broker is there.
                  - Liaise with the buyers broker (and potentially revenue share)
                  - Help arranging inspections, getting loans, help you with financial management.

                  In India, it's just 'knowing' that there is a house for sale and getting buyer and seller to meet.

                      I had contacted Gemini properties (Nilgiriwala) for a property in Kharadi on the same day of checking it on his website.
                      He said the property is sold-out and I can check other (expensive) properties. Never contacted him after that
                      Most of RE agents I met, were liars, unprofessional & Scorpio-chap. Sometimes found society-watchmen acting as agent
