Here's What Intrigues Me.....

By
Real Estate Agent with Bill Cherry, Realtor 0124242

One of the troubling issues that seems to crop up a lot more than it used to, is finding myself doing a co-op sale with an agent who, frankly, doesn't know what he or she is doing.

 

And I have found that it has little to do with the amount of business they handle every year, or whether they became licensed yesterday or twenty-five years ago.

 

All the while, our required documents, rules and laws are getting more and more complex, and many of those more seasoned agents prefer remaining in a time warp. with exception of taking the continuing education requirements for license renewal.

 

In Texas, there is a phenomenon that especially perplexes me. Our laws do not require a salesman to be tested and become a broker within some reasonable period of time.

 

They don't require the work of a salesman to be formally accepted and acknowledged as correct by his/her broker.

 

And most interesting of all, the salesman's license fee is substantially cheaper than a broker's license.

 

Consequently, there is no particular motivation to become a broker if you prefer limiting your practice to listing and selling.

 

I often wonder how other states handle these issues.
