You Say Tomato... I Say Tomahto...
We can play nice in the sandbox with others that don't quite do things the way that we do. Who's to say which way is right when both ways are working.
I do not want to work 24/7... my family does not want me too... my clients do not want me to... so what makes another agent in a different office and in fact, in a different state, think they have the right to tell me that I need to?
Some business plans are fee for service plans, some are traditional commisison plans... why should one side knock the other.. there's plenty of homes and clients for both.. Giving the public choices is a good thing in my book.
Some agents need to have another job in addition to real estate. Those agents that do not find it necessary to to supplement their real estate income sometimes knock those that need to do so, even though obviously their clients are OK with it or they wouldn't hire them.
We need to live above some of this...
There is so much wasted energy in these battles that could be better spent working on issues that benefit us all.
