Everyone keeps saying that the real estate market is going to bounce back soon. At this point I'm more likely to believe that unicorns will take over the world

Everything is a cycle, so it is real even if it seems more possible to see a unicorn, eventually that moment that now seems impossible will arrive.

I do not agree, I have more than 10 years working in the furniture market and I know that sometimes things get difficult but there is always an improvement.

Hello everyone. Is anyone in the process of joining D-USI ? I received a 3rd revised offer letter about a day after the “market adjustment”. I contacted the HR and informed them that there were no updates on it, and they said a new one will be sent with updates.

I’m curious as to what these updates are. Anyone else facing something similar ? I’m assuming it’s minor changes to the T&C, and not a comp update.

I have an offer to a commercial real estate company in hand. My current brokerage (residential focus) wants me to pay $3000 penalty since I’m breaking the contract and leaving. I’m financially struggling and 3k is a big number to pay now. The new job will be paying me $2000/month up until the first year only. Is it wise to pay or stick around in residential sales just to avoid that penalty?

I made the sale 3 days after starting in the agency, and everyone congratulated me. I think I broke a national record.
