The world is changing whether we like it or not. Sometime in the near future CAR/NAR, your local association boar, and MLS will be a thing of the past. They just monopolize agents for their money. They are thieves in my eyes. They are ridiculously expensive, and the consumer doesn't care about the word "REALTOR," I promise you that. They just care if they got a good deal. Here in California you don't have to join NAR, CAR, or your local association board. Why join MLS, when you have TRULIA, ZILLOW, etc. They are actually a better tool. The hurdle is the forms, and I have a problem with the way they monopolize the forms too. These greety people are just disgusting to me!
