What defines the "quality" of service you provide? Do you have a written operations manual that defines the level of service you provide to your clients?

For those of you that have buyer's agents, have you ever really calculated the costs associated with having them and keeping them?  If you sit down and calculate the complete costs of running your business, you'll discover that it costs you somewhere between 40 and 60 percent of your income to op...
