Two offices, One team!
I couldn't work it out. "Two offices working as one team!" said the real estate agent's sign... WHat offices? What's the big deal?
I asked someone what it meant, because it started to spread from agency group to agency group.
It means two separate franchised offices would cooperate to help sell your home.
I was astounded! Wouldn't a seller expect that when they are dealing with a branded organisation they had at their disposal the resources of that organisation?
No. Normally these officecs would compete with each other. It is a fundamental flaw in the franchise system, it is anti-consumer, and here they are making a big deal out of the fact that they are acting in a way most consumers would consider normal and fair.
It's like a bank telling you it is reducing its fees or American Express offering to discount its joining fee.
"Great news, long suffering customer! We are going to stop assaulting you for a short period of time!"
