Almost all of what the real estate industry spits out is marketing nonsense; counterproductive for both the public and true professional agents. We found something that’s not and it is worth ten minutes of your time. Half of agents do not sell a home a year and 85% of agents cannot live on their earnings, yet these agents hang around. This white board video details how to spot agents that bring headaches and reviews the usual “pitches” that get you to sign on the dotted line – a decision often soon regretted. It is up to buyers and sellers to demand the best from agents, change will not come from the industry and must come from outside.

Buying or selling home is no longer a simple process. Since the crash, the process has become much more complex, difficult to manage and stressful for all concerned. It’s clear that the real estate industry has no plans to increase the requirements to hold a license, that means it’s up to the public to work with professionals. Real estate isn’t rocket science but when things go wrong, the rocket blows up in spectacular, usually financially troublesome, fashion.
