Real Estate Agents Do Have Work to Do

Mathew Kundinger writes one of those misinformed or uninformed letters attacking real estate agents as if we earn our commissions by doing no work ("Realtors Need to Accept Reality of Internet Rivals," Letters, March 2).

The Internet is another marketing tool we use to help sell our listings. Prospective buyers still need to contact an agent (their own or the listing agent) in order to see the property, to make an offer and to conclude a sale.

And for his information, listings don't just walk into the office -- they require many hours and dollars of prospecting, soliciting, advertising and promotion.

I make my money the old-fashioned way -- I earn it.
