Tune-in now to catch the livestream. Don't miss this chance to see real estate leaders tackle the industry's top problems.

There are incompetent real estate agents of all stripes and, yes, we need to "raise the bar."

But we also need to stop assuming that other agents are incompetent as soon as there is the slightest problem with a real estate transaction.

We need to stop telling the world that real estate agents are incompetent because we are making it hard for competent agents to do their jobs.
