For years, I have read and listened to complaints about how low the bar is for becoming a real estate agent and about how many “bad agents” we have as a result. Often agents are asked how we can raise standards. How is that working?
- Instead of looking to real estate agents for solutions, we could put the burden on brokers.
- Real estate licensees are required to work under a licensed broker, and that gives brokers control.
- Some brokers won't be able to raise the bar of professionalism, but many can and should.
