There is a lot of support within the real estate industry for weeding out unethical or unprofessional behaviour. Self-policing can’t replace public sector regulation, but it’s a welcome extra layer of consumer protection.
A client who is obsessed with the fee usually has little respect for you, your services or our profession. They should provide you with sufficient incentive to invest your time and effort on their behalf.
Everyone talks about a great culture, everyone says that they possess it, but in reality very few brokerages deliver. In order to have a winning or successful culture, first you must have a great leader.
“What I like about working in real estate has always been the same. I truly enjoy making my clients happy and getting to work with great people," says James Buonassisi, a salesperson with Re/Max Select Realty in Vancouver.
