No wonder most of them complain that their marketing budget is too high and they just aren’t getting enough leads. People have seen it too many times, and just don’t respond anymore. I’m a fan of staying ahead of the curve, and...

The Problem With Real Estate Agents

More than one time I’ve been talking to someone that just despises real estate agents. They think they are overpaid and don’t really serve any purpose. The question always comes up “Why should I pay them a HUGE commission just to put my house on the MLS?” And I have to admit, I do agree with one thing… Some real estate agents do a very bad job and are not worth hiring.
