Adam Sandler said it in the movie "Bedtime Stories." Everybody wants "for free!"
Do I even have value? I feel like I'm a volunteer, working "for free!" Or do I have "sucker" written across my forehead? I don't know which it is, but it is certainly frustrating and discouraging!
I keep getting the clients that are looking for a steal, or as my broker says, "a fire sale." They use me and abuse me. One bought a FISBO and I found out later. She didn't even bother telling me or thanking me for all that I had done for her!
I am currently helping a very nice young couple, and they are now looking for a home they can buy at auction on the courthouse steps. Working for free, again! I do love helping people, and certainly understand their situation. However, I have a family that needs me to have an income!
