Real Estate Agents Dropping Like Flies

Wow, I'd like to stay. Just have this thing downtown. Yeah, I gotta run. Be in touch, for sure. No, I have your number. The Wall Street Journal reports today that real estate agents are throwing in the towel.

The long-awaited shakeout among real-estate agents is finally happening - much to the relief of those who are sticking with the business and prefer a bit less competition. According to the paper, there's an expected 6-8 percent drop in the number of agents this year. All those Spanish-speaking, alfalfa-eating real estate agents we talked up earlier this week? Smoke and mirrors, people. Apologies.
