Agents are Not Trusted, Part 1.
Last year Consumer Reports magazine said “[t]he real-estate-agent business is saddled with a poor reputation” and “[a]ccording to the real estate agents we surveyed, that reputation is sometimes earned.” This is also reflected in an earlier study of the most trusted professions. In the study real estate agents were rated behind Sex Workers, Soccer players and CEO’s. The only professions to rank worse than agents in trustworthiness were Psychics/Astrologers, Politicians, Car Salesmen and Telemarketers. Find out why people feel this way, and how you can protect yourself from untrustworthy behavior in Part 2 of this article.
