You know that your real estate market is expereincing a shake-up when an article about it in Inman News. The post was actually a reposting of an original article written by "The Real Deal" by Amy Tennery called Westchester real estate shake-up: Brokerage world sees shuffling of agents as firms shutter and consolidate during downturn.
There is a body of opinion within the industry that shares some of the concerns regarding real estate agent education that I brought up in my post. The issues have been out there and are under continuous debate. So please don't shoot the messenger.
But recently I ran into an agent that had the following designations on her card ...."Sally Smith, ABR, GRI, CDPE, CRS, & EPro." Ya gotta be kidding me! This person has more designation letters then letters in their name.
