I read the Real Estate Q&A every Sunday and I have gained some very valuable information. However, I would enjoy it more if Robert Bruss answered questions with fact, not personal opinion. His opinion regarding three previous references and part-time agents floors me.
Everyone has to start somewhere. What if you are a new agent and you don't have one reference to give? The paranoia Bruss has instilled in his readers will never give new agents a first chance. A new agent will probably work harder than the seasoned, complacent agent. We are so eager to obtain experience, we will go the extra mile. His attitude regarding part-time agents leaves much to be desired. He is very blatant about his lawyer/author/real estate broker designation. Which of these does he do full time?
