Whine & Complain #1

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Noted Curmudgeons

I’ve worked over the years with many a “Re-al-tor” (rē΄əl tōr), but never—ever—ever with a “Re-li-tor” (rē lĭt΄ tōr). Why is it that this ridiculous pronunciation persists? It’s not easier to say—or is it? I can understand why non-members say it that way, but I don’t understand why members persist in it.

Heck I have even heard the people at the front desks of real estate companies answer the phone:  "XYZ Reality" and yes I have heard people call themselves realiters.

I think the first criteria for hiring any administrative position in a real estate company should be to pronouce REALTOR and realty correctly.  If they can't do that there's no need to interview!
