Kathryn Roan’s post busting the Top 10 Realtor Myths was the most-read article on True or False: All Realtors post in bikinis for their billboard ads?

… and had everything to do with busting the myths surrounding Realtors.

It was Kathryn Donovan Roan’s post on the top 10 Realtor myths that was commented on and shared the most, generating 51,267 pageviews. In the post, Roan de-bunked some of the more insidious and commonplace assumptions about Realtors, including how they make commission, how they are licensed, and much more.

“I am amazed how many times ‘Top 10 Myths’ was shared, even on other blogs and Facebook groups,” Roan said. “It just goes to show you how prevalent these misconceptions are, no matter the market. I hope, also, that it helps people understand how hard the business really is – how risky, and with no guarantees.”

It’s true! Even with how much home prices are on the rise and how high demand is in Dallas and beyond, nothing is ever certain in real estate. It takes someone who is methodical, consistent, and very savvy to make real money in this industry.
