As for McMahon, the Atlanta agent, she still had a nice listing book and plenty of leads when she called it quits. In the end, unreliable buyers, surly sellers, and a lack of office camaraderie contributed to a decision that solidified when home sales and prices dipped. "I was waiting for a time to kind of swing out," she says. She's planning to become a high school science teacher.My broker friend's response?
I looked her up in MLS - she's some ReMax agent who has closed 7 houses in 2 years (4 of which were new construction on the same street)... I'd quit too if I were her.Hmmm. Doesn't sound to me like she had a "nice listing book and plenty of leads" with 7 sales over 2 years. I will be blogging soon about the abundance of Realtors just like this that in my opinion just get in the way of the good ones. They don't make $150,000 like they thought they would because hey, real estate is easy. Right? And then they disappear unnoticed in the middle of the night and return to their corporate jobs where they get their paychecks every 2 weeks. Good riddance I say.
