Article | March 13, 2020

In the crowded conference room of a major institutional investor in late 2009, an investor asked the owner of a global real estate development company why so much of its good money had been thrown at obviously failing development projects.

When companies within an industry or even massive empires throughout history are faced with adversity and conflict, one of their first instincts is to centralize and consolidate their power. They need to control their fate and the only way to do that is by taking charge and directing its employees and assets to overcome the competition. As we know, real estate agents operate as 1099 independent contractors. They simply “hang their license” under a brokerage. At the end of the day, it’s their own individual business.
