"The Dark Side of Real Estate"

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty West Sound WA State 52404

sith-lord.jpgIn any job that involves the transfer of money, there is always an opportunity and temptation to be swayed by the "Dark Side of the Force." Many times we feel we can bend the rules, however slightly, to justify the means to an end. We try to convince ourselves that we are genuinely serving our clients greater good. We argue, "I'm only trying to get the deal to close," as our tainted hand slowly slithers under the table....

Does our Hero triumph over Evil? Or does he succumb to the Dark Side of the Real Estate Force?

Brother Rich, each time we compromise like this, it makes it that much easier to compromise again, and again, until we do not see anything wrong with it any more.  This is a road that I choose not to travel.

I guess I am from the old school.  Bending the rules is not an option.  Unfortunately sometimes I feel I am in the minority.

Randy said it all! We have to be able to look at ourselves in the morning each day. The Golden Rule is not "bendable"!

Good link and blog, Rich. As I said on the other site, when someone asks you to do something "just this once", watch out. If it were a good thing to do, why wouldn't you want to repeat it?

Great post.  Unfortunately some see white, some see black, and a few like to work in the shades of grey.  There is not a placeto color outside the lines.  Not once!  NEVAH EVAH!
