Subject: FW: My response to a Wall Stree Journal article

Hello Concerned Parties,

As a REALTOR, I am very concerned about the groundswell of opinion that we are overpaid and non-competitive. In response to an article in the Wall Street Journal, I sent the letter below. There is a great deal of mis-information being circulated about our industry and I hope that those that make judgments calling us 'overpaid middlemen' will get enough facts to understand how incorrect their assumptions have been.

If I can further express my opinion and have that effort be valuable, please let me know. However, for now I am sending a letter that is already written. Be assured that I will do my best to further the effort of opening the eyes of those that think we are overpaid.

It is a very good life!
