What Do Real Estate Agents and Car Salesmen Have in Common?
You all know how much of the public views us as not much better than used car salesmen. Well why is that?
Is it the few rotten apples that spoil the barrel?
Does the public not realize how hard we work?
Is it the "easy entry" or low barrier to licensing?
Do they perceive us as over paid?
Or is it because many agents get the job for the same reason car salesmen do - they think it is easy and the public will come to us?
A similar discussion on social media recently blamed it mostly on the low educational and experience barrier to entrance.
But we think it is much broader. Please let us know what you think!
