"This surplus of agents is bad for both the industry and regular people in the housing market...The low barrier to entry puts buyers and sellers at risk of ending up with dubious advice on one of the biggest transactions of their lives, while the capable agents are forced to spend inordinate amounts of time and money trying to stand out from the pack...They also waste hours dealing with incompetent colleagues as they try to get a sale across the finish line.
