Dear Real Estate Ethicist,

I just joined my mother's real estate firm, where there are 10 agents. My mom, being my mom, gave me a nice desk, a new computer monitor (the other agents have old ones) and some choice leads.

I feel awkward about it all, but I also have a lifestyle to support and I figure my mom can do whatever she wants. Hey, she built the company. This is a family asset, right? –Coddled but confused

Dear Coddled,
