LOL Robert 'VEGAS BOB' Swetz of course not! And also not all can be trusted for everything that matters to you. They may be honest but not reliable about follow through, or diligent but lack experience. Know who you are working with!

?????

Can all people wearing the robes of clergy or wearing a badge of law enforcement or who swear to uphold the laws of the land, or accept the fiduciary duty of an investment counselor be trusted?

I'm willing to bet if the % of violations were compared, the 1.7 million real estate agents will prove very trust worthy.

"ALL" is a dangerous qualifier.

Trust is something that is earned. Sad to say I don't think many people can be trusted. Almost every day you can read or hear about someone's lies and deceptions. The most concerning to me is when you can't trust those who are an Authority figure.
