The other interesting conundrum is a California Association of Realtors study shows only 22% of home buyers are happy with their Realtor compared to 79% of respondents in 2004.  According to the study, which is a reflection of the housing crisis in the U.S., 64% of sellers said “the house took too long to sell” and 51% said, “We didn’t get the price we wanted.” No kidding. And you blame your Realtor? So if you are a Realtor in the U.S. sitting back waiting for referrals you could be waiting a long time.
