THE MEN AND WOMEN OF REAL ESTATE

THE MEN AND WOMEN OF REAL ESTATE

 

Was a day in real estate ever meant to be comparable to the antics that take place on reality television? Should we be learning our life lessons along with the Housewives of Orange County or with the cast of Jersey Shore? I find it hard to believe that anyone would go around knocking down another agent's open house signs.

 

OKAY, I GET IT.

 

It's a dog eat dog world. 

 

Still, I want to believe that there is more than enough business to go around. There are plenty of houses that go up for sale each season and there's never any justification for fighting over them.

 

But the stories I hear leave me shaking my head.

 

There was the one agent who told a family of five (3 young children) to "have fun living in the streets" as the home was nearing foreclosure; the listing had expired and the homeowners weren't interested in relisting with this particular woman. I wonder why?

 

Another agent went around calling other agents who were not from the neighborhood and screaming at them that they didn't belong in the area. She'd tell them they should leave the listings alone so the local agents could have them. Back in real estate school, I learned this was called market allocation and it's against the law.

 

It happens.

 

You get the picture and I'm sure you have your own stories to tell. It's a sad sales stereotype and it can get tough when dealing with the men and women of real estate.
