All I can say is, any agent who works in your market deserves a medal. 

Our market is way down year over year for 3 years, but agents can still make a decent living if they can generate business.

Lenn - I wish I could write about improvement in the Lakeland Real Estate Market or at least about a stable market and with record unemployment rates to 13.4% just released I'm afraid I will continue to report about a downward market.
