Of late there has been a lot of criticism of the real estate industry. Much of this has focused on the agents themselves. It seems that our society has decided that to place blame is the solution to a problem. The economy is bad, blame real estate. Real estate is bad, blame the agents.
The problem is not going away just because someone pointed a finger at someone else! Whether that blame is correctly placed or not (and we don’t think it is), nothing is accomplished unless something is actually done to correct the problem.
To correct any problem, you have to understand it! What are the negative points? What are the positive points? Remember the old adage about not throwing out the baby with the bath water? It applies to this situation as well. Fix the broken, but keep the good!
What is the good in the real estate agent situation? A lot actually (yes, I might be slightly biased, but it’s a fact). We are not just a necessary evil either. An honest and caring agent, especially a Realtor® can bring a lot to the transaction. I recently read an article by Teresa Boardman on this subject. She pointed out some interesting facts. Rather than quote her, I am providing you her entire story.
