Not all agents are created equal. Although the previous statement should not be held in the same esteem as the discovery of electricity, it certainly needs to be said. Just like every profession, real estate has it's share of bad apples. I'm fortunate to work in a community that promotes ethical behavior and don't often run into trouble with other agents in that area, but rest assured-there are people out there that will be less than honest to get a deal done. Make sure that your agent is treating you with the respect you deserve and keeping your interests in mind at all times. February is now here...and it's still cold & snowing in Iowa.
