  13. 13. www.roren.ro No wonder is hard to show value... “Since the client doesn’t think of you as a provider of services, but rather as a worthless amateur, it’s very obvious the situation is a non-starter. “Often, you look bad in front of a client right from the start; I’ve been through many such situations; clients would ask me how much their house is worth, I’d tell them, to which they quickly reply that another real estate agent told them they could get 10K more.” “At present, whether your client is a seller or buyer, trust in real estate agents is relatively low; there are many outfits claiming to broker transactions... some more professional, others a lot less...” *quotes from a RoREN market study surveyed in Sept. 2007
