yuba city: Professionalism in Real Estate? - 03/04/08 10:41 PM
Why does the real estate industry get a bad rap.  National statistics show that buyers and sellers  do not perceive their agent or the industry as being professional.  Could it be that it only takes 45 hours to get a real estate license? It takes 1200-1800 hours to learn how to cut hair in the state of California.  Why does the state allow agents to handle a buyer or seller's most important purchase or sale of their life with only 45 hours of training?  And is it really training at all?  I can't remember the last time I was able to … (5 comments)
