Customers can be so demanding.

Customers we love them but they take up so much of our time and they  do not even realize that we do not get pay every Friday.
Ok so if they buy a house or sell their house and we are involved then we do make a commission. What most people do not understand is that the comission gets split multiple times.
Not only is it shared equally by the seller agent and buyer agent but those agents must split their share again with their principal broker and the franchise company gets a split also.
So, after driving around for months, putting in time searching the MLS, placing ads, hosting Open Houses and trying to keep their customer happy, the agent finally gets a very small piece of the commission pie.
Oh how I love this. I do so enjoy seeing the smile on my customers' face when they are handed the keys or the check.
That smile keeps me going back.
