I went to a real estate seminar last week and the presenter hit me with something that I have not thought about. He said that "as real estate agents, we are independent contractors, and as such be personally liable in a lawsuit". The presenter ask us to think of incorporating or doing a LLC. Since he is not a lawyer or sell these services there is no benefit for him recommending it. So this really made me think if this would be a good step to protect ourselves.
