It's a strange kind of real estate market in San Diego County, and the other day I realized that it's getting a little bit crazier. Traditionally we have seller's markets and buyer's markets.

We are always told the rating of a Real Estate Agent is equal or a step below a used car salesman!  How can this be?  It pains me as I work hard to maintain a professional image and perceive myself as a professional.  I guess perception is always in the eye of the beholder.  Why does the consume...
