It can happen to any Realtor, and the more transactions an agent closes, the more often it is likely to happen. I'm talking about what happens when a Realtor does not like her client.

Is it unfair to fire the wife who has done nothing wrong? These are questions I've had to struggle with lately. Ultimately, though, there was a reason why the wife handled all of the upfront negotiations. Because we'd never get as far as we had come if it had been the other way around.
