    11. 11. Confidentiality<br />10/02/09 on ActiveRain<br />“Today I closed a transaction that was one of the most stressful transactions, for everyone involved ... I am a broker with 15 agents ... I thought I would have an ulcer before this transaction closed…<br />“So what was the problem? ... The buyer ... someone who had an inactive license when one of my agents wrote the contract, assisting her as a transaction broker...during the process she reactivated her license. She plans on listing and selling property...This would lead you to believe she understands something about real estate and contracts, right? WRONG!!<br />“How is someone who cannot understand something as simple as possession explain anything else in the contract. She closed, but she never did understand. And we had to make unnecessary compromises to get it closed. And she has been trying to get into the house since this afternoon! It&apos;s going to be a long six days!”<br />
