 I spent some time talking to a rookie agent at my  recent broker open house. Over a plate of chicken spaghetti (I bribe agents with food), we discussed his first few months in the business.  To say he had the deer in the headlight look was an understatement.

It's not a full week in real estate if you don't make at least one person angry. A fellow called earlier this week wanting to tour one of my listings. Sounds easy enough right?
