Of all professions, some have a worse reputation than others. Lawyer jokes aside, one profession worthy of mixed reviews is real estate. Thanks to a few bad eggs, all industry colleagues find themselves fighting a reputation for chasing a quick buck and unethical dealings.
Thankfully, that trend is changing. A Gallup poll found that real estate professionals have the highest ever public opinion in the history of the poll. People think higher of agents than ever before!
Despite the rotten agents who’s stories fill these pages, the good agents are emerging victorious. Of those surveyed, 20% say their opinion of real estate professionals is in the “very high to high” category when it comes to honesty an ethics. At the bottom of the list are members of congress, with only 7% trusting the ethics and honesty of their elected representatives.
With so many shady competitors, it is great to see the quality, trustworthy agents rising above the rest of the pack.
If you are looking to buy a home, you have a big search ahead of you. Don’t make the search for an agent harder than it has to be. Whether you are buying or selling, start your search for the perfect real estate professional at AgentHarvest.
