To Whom It May Concern
The Real Estate Industry is made up of hard working individuals who do not dominate anything or anybody. If you can qualify for a license and have the energy to work like a dog, you can probably make enough money to live off of. Most people get into this business to get rich but soon find out that the magic formula for that is not working like one dog but working like two dogs. Most people who try to sell their own homes soon find out that it truly does require real work and unique insight.
The Big Corporations and Banks that want to OWN the REALTORS will only provide more failed pension and retirement plans and stifle the spirit of those of us who don't mind working like a dog for what we want in life.
