Thanks, Slate.com for such a great analysis and simplification/insult to the careers of millions of people (I say millions because Realtors + Real Estate Agents + assistants + hr + web staff + marketing team, etc).
Did you know that (most) brokers also know how to do long division, turn on their laptops, walk with their right foot then left foot consequentially AND open tricky tubes of hygienic products like toothpaste, all without assistance?
No, you probably think brokers are robotic retards. Your insight is unparalleled.
