The average agent enters the real estate field at age 39.  Wow well I started at age.... 23 and going on 24... I guess I considered myself … (6 comments)

realtor: Why buyers actually prefer agents - 03/14/10 11:50 PM
Why buyers actually prefer agents
 
Most buyers feel uncomfortable dealing directly with the seller of the home because of the different confrontations involved, not to mention the buyer feeling anxiety from the seller hovering over them while they shop for a home.  Another reason why buyers prefer real estate agents vs.  Dealing directly with the seller is because they're afraid that they will offend you...  They might not like the way a certain thing looks in your house but will not tell you because they don't want to offend you.  Buyers don't mind telling their real estate agent things that … (11 comments)

realtor: Fun Is The Recipe For Success - 01/30/10 10:27 PM
I read a really sad article about 4 out of 10 Realtors made less than $10,000.00 last year... I think I accidently trashed the article but anyway I thought that was sad.  The article went on to say that many real estate agents are working at the poverty level. 
I don't know about you but that is just one other piece of the real estate out there... I have watched agents become more and more grumpy over the last 2 years. 
I have also seen many Realtors merge into teams.  I think that is a great idea as long as the … (5 comments)
