Interesting turn of events

Here in the Houston Metro market we have been inundated with real estate agents the last 5 years. The HAR (Houston Association of Realtors) has grown from 18000 to 26000 Realtors it seems overnight. It seems that trend is turning around...and for the better! In talking with a couple of the large real estate schools the enrollment in classes for real estate have dropped 40-60%

My guess is the potential new agents are watching the same reports we are; the market is hurting and the days of "easy money" are over. Some are realizing the days of easy money really never existed and we hope the realization will set in that this is a job for FULL TIME committed people who believe in customer service first. This slow down and potential shake out may be the best thing that has ever happened to our industry. All the agencies claiming full service at a discount (while they throw out a lock box and a sign) are going to go the way of the dinosaur!
