You really need to stop throwing making up numbers to suit your own needs :) lol. U know Iím right
You offering to pay that?!?

Its not a question of right or wrong, Its a question of weather you can actually get a broker to pay and back up your numbers.

I was quoted at 1.7
Now that makes sense. Posting numbers that you actually got quoted from brokers.

There is easily a .002-.003 gap between brokers prices. Quoting the full page mishpacha ad brokers prices here is pointless. Not saying that was the case in the quote above. I am just pointing out that one of those brokers offered a family member (they can somehow smell when you are mileage newbie) 1.1 for MR recently.

thats not bad. i know one of them paid .6 for SPG before the merger when it was possible to get closed to 3x that. I was shocked at the brazenness to even offer that low.
