Norm Miller, the Han Chair for Real Estate Finance in the University of San Diego School of Business, is quoted in an October 6 Wall Street Journal article on international commissions.

“The U.S., economically, is an outlier,” Miller says in the article. Miller is co-author of the original 2002 survey that examined brokerages in 32 nations. The survey was updated last year by the discount-brokerage firm Surefield, which charges about 1.5 percent commission. Miller consulted on the update. The survey finds that the United States remains one of the most expensive nations to sell a home. To view the international commission rate comparisons, visit the Surefield website. A correction to the Wall Street Journal article: Miller was not compensated for his involvement. 

Miller was also quoted in an October 10 article on what developers should consider about safety
