Four months after having its hand slapped by TREB, this online brokerage is closing its doors.
Are they?? They look up comparables, taxi,tour ...You wonder why there are flat rate services, free services, Agents dropping their fees...Consumers are waking up and have been seeing the light for years .....The industry signed up as many agents as they could with the lure of easy money..but 90% of agents are paying dues for the lawyers to help out the 10% of agents to keep their easy street
OREA needs to open their eyes wide and see the damage they are contributing too in this profession. I have have tried to speak with some Realtors that can barley speak English. Don't get me wrong I believe everyone deserves the right to earn a living. However this board appears to be concerned with taking the money and running these ridiculous ads and saying they are working to improve our image. The system is broken and needs to be repaired urgently. Our commission will always be under attack when they can shop for the lowest price. It's like smoking and blaming the cigarette company. Now for the solutions. Business card must be updated yearly with a current photo for security and the following information must be present.1. Years as a Realtor2. Realtor Status - Full-Time or Part-Time The consumers needs to know a bit more about who they are making their largest investment with. Your thoughts?
If Ego agents (THE 10%)worked for a realistic fee like 1,000-2,000 and had too actually work Hard than there would be more clients for the 90% . It would be fair. Home values went up not the value of the realtor. ALl these realtors ever say walk in my shoes,they don't know... if these were orthopedic surgeons,cancer specialists...maybe they would have something..EGO on these 10%'s They should be called RealityThey get sore when consumers make statements on their ego... The reply before me knows the system is flawed,broken and only working for the EGOS
