To find out how agents feel about topics such as commissions, associations, office satisfaction and more, we launched a comprehensive survey to find out the truth about agents. Chicago Agent received an overwhelming number of responses, and we’d like to thank our readers for filling out the survey, in addition to their continued support.
As the recession comes to an end and the real estate market starts to steady, our survey confirms the notion that modern agents are working harder despite a steep income decline. Gone are the days of everyone joining the industry with the idea that real estate is an easy career that will bring in an ample income without any effort, and our survey demonstrates the added effort that the modern Realtor encounters daily.
