Okay, that's a little melodramatic and I don't have time to talk about everything I would change. And, frankly, I have no interest in ruling any world.
So, let me rephrase that. If I ruled my real estate company...
I'd pass this law: Any agent who works for me will have to prove to me, their queen, that the sellers they allow to hire them have either a strong NEED or a strong DESIRE to sell. No market-testers allowed.
My company's listings would be 100% marketable. My company's listings would sell. Buyer agents would flock to show my listings first because they are priced right, easy to show and smell good. Or if they aren't easy to show and/or smell awful, they are priced accordingly.
We'd take 60 day listing agreements and not a day longer. That's plenty of time to sell a home and frankly, I don't want my real estate sign sitting in front of a house any longer than that.
Sellers would have to sell themselves to my agents. My agents would have to sell their sellers to me.
If an agent didn't like my law, they could leave. But I think they'd love it once they understood it.
