I imagine the same could be felt every where as it is here. We are a small, 4 stop light town, on the Oregon coast with 55 Realtors. Fortunately about half work or I would starve.
Every so often I come across a sign and a listing, from an out of the area broker. While we are licensed to sell anywhere in the state, you wonder, why did they not list local? Sometimes the listing agent is a relative. When they are not, What is the reason?
The out of area Realtors seldom come to our RMLS meeting to present the listing or hold a Broker Open House. How can they possibly give the service a local agent can provide? The listings seldom sell as they just don't give the service and we arnen't informed on them. Would I sell one? Yes if I know about it! Your Thoughts?
