Those TV ads for “completely free” real estate agent services are ridiculous. ALL of us work on commission, that’s how the business is run! People need their own dedicated agent to help them, “Dial-An-Agent” programs just aren’t the same.

These people should be checked to see if what they say is true, obviously not so they can be prosecuted for false propaganda.

I have seen it several times and what you say is true, some type of business that we are not seeing is happening there, I don't know which but that type of offer is very rare.

This type of program is a problem for the entire union because if they say they don't charge, are the rest of us abusing it? I know it's not like that, but a lot of people dare to make that kind of comment and it has bothered me many times.

Don't worry, with this type of strategy, in a while you can see the trap, it is not possible to do the work of a real estate agent without charging a commission, and in the case of these people, it is a phantom commission which can be even very high.

There can't be a business as dangerous as you, they must have some rabbit in the hat, and in a certain way, they are deceiving customers.

It's really annoying how those TV ads for "completely free" real estate agent services are trying to rip people off. ALL of us work on commission, that's how the business is run! They're probably just hoping people won't know any better and will sign up with them, only to be disappointed later on. Don't be fooled by their schemes, always do your research before picking an agent!

It would be great if people understood that before they call us up asking for help. We're happy to provide our services at no cost, but it's not really a "free" service, since we rely on commissions to make our money.

Hi everyone

I'm in a business development role based in Asia. May I get your thoughts/pointers on the CAIA?

I'm aware that the CAIA is not as popular in Asia compared to the CFA. From my knowledge, there are no CAIA holders in my current firm within the Asian region, despite dealing with alternative investments.

Would be happy to hear your thoughts regarding the CAIA, and study tips if you have any!

Hello People,

3 questions for ya'll:

1) Do we need to sign an employment bond, if we are offered an opportunity to go secondment/STA for few days/months with an onshore entity of the PwC Network?

2) Since secondment opportunity is offered to a select few, what does it mean for that individual in terms of growth, in terms of compensation and designation.

3) Can we negotiate and get a pay raise before signing an employment bond?

Thanks in advance!

Some agents are not sincere, and some houses have a negative record (this is what we call the incidents inside the homes), but many agents do not say it. I know it is about ethics, but at the same time, it should be punishable because you are deceiving a person to take advantage of the situation; it is a scam.
