No. And depending on their response to that, I may block them. LOL I've gone back into blocked messages and found "Okay I'll do it your way" but by then I am long gone. I don't like being devalued by ANYONE. I don't care if it's a negotiation, I'm always willing to walk and that can be the strongest position of all! 

I have been known to tell clients "Keep your hand outta my pocket, and I'll keep others' hands out of yours!"

ABSOLUTELY!
I present the menu with all the ingredients and life benefit, and they most often reply, "We need all of these."
The next one to speak loses.

The response is not canned. It depends on the client, the situation, and circumstances however the end answer is always, no.

Let's do the math. May I take out a sheet of paper. We are partners in this venture. You want net proceeds and I want the commission I earn. If I cut my commission by "X" the discount is "Y" percentage of normal. I can do it if you partner with me and drop your price by"Y" percentage. Do we have a deal?

Do you really want an agent that will sell themselves out, knowing that they will likely sell you out when the going gets tough.

Or do you want a great negotiator working on your side of the table?

I explain how the commission is shared between two offices and that I pay for virtual tours and all other fees.  I try not to lose the listing over the commission as I know there's always a good agent willing to take the listing a a discount price.  I am realistic.

If already signed up I say: Yes, but only if you can lower your price by a corresponding percentage. If not signed yet then the answer will be NO then GOODBYE.
