GREAT ARTICLE!! Couldn't have said it better myself. I have been in a la Carte mindset for over 2 years. My company, iBuy Realty is an Exclusive Buyers Agent Real Estate Brokerage Firm. Read the statistics via the survey done by the National Association of Realtors. The survey validates this story and year after year shows that the a la Carte way of doing things is becoming more popular. iBuy Realty currently operates in Houston, Tx and is really taking off. We were featured in the Business Journal and Houston Chronicle after only being open for a 1.5 months. We are packaging our company into a franchise and will be selling iBuy Realty throught the U.S. by the end of the year. We have figured out how to have a profitable model were some of the other companies in the past failed and could not sustain. Expect an iBuy Realty in your neighborhood soon. www.ibuyrealty.com GREAT ARTICLE!!
