A Realtor Used Craigslist To Say What Most Realtors Are Thinking (But Few Actually Say)

Not everybody who posts to Craigslist is selling or seeking something; some use the platform to make a point. Such is
the case with the anonymous Realtor who posted this “wanted” ad.

PinRealtor looking for people to do their job
at a discount.

I am a Realtor and
since people always expect me to cut my commission I assume they must also do their job, or provide
their services, at a discount.

I am looking to hire
all types of people to do all sorts of jobs for me, as long as I do not have to pay what you’re actually
worth. I’m sure you have a lot of extra time on your hands and you probably make enough money anyway.
Think about it, helping me will actually help yourself because I know a ton of people and I’ll tell them
what wonderful (discounted) work you do.

So if you have a job or
service you provide, and are willing to devalue your worth, please let me know because I’m sure I have
work for you and will hire you in a second.

Feel free to email me
with the service you can provide, when you can start, and please include references.

I look forward to your
discounted service.

Thanks,

🙂

Is it snarky? Absolutely.

Funny? You decide.

But one thing’s for certain: it’s rooted in the truth of what most real estate agents face on a regular basis.

Fact is, most people don’t really understand what they do to earn their commission and how they get paid. This
causes the misconception that agents aren’t worth what they’re paid. Or that they live “high on the hog”.

Not hardly. After marketing fees and dues, agents earn about 1.5% per transaction on average. It’s expensive to
be a real estate agent. Just have a look:
