Real Estate Agent - Hodnett Cooper
A few years ago I attended the revival of David Mamet's play Glengarry Glen Ross, which reveals the seamy underside of the real estate business. It's a marvelous show, in spite of the portrayal of real estate agents as ruthless conmen. A pivotal moment comes when one of the bosses of the company ...
Your real estate agent just called to tell you that’s someone’s made an offer on your house! Hooray! Your first question is: how much are they offering?
