Get off my lawn!!

by Greg Robertson on August 1st, 2018

When I see Gary Keller on stage trying to school Brad Inman, or brokers yelling at new companies complaining about their business models, you can deduce only one thing. They are scared shitless. They ought to be. The new entrants don’t give two shits about the old guard.

You think the hyperbole and lies are at an all-time high? I couldn’t agree with you more. Why? Well, I think it starts from the top. But hey, the economy, right?

But, I digress.

You are seeing this everywhere. Zillow vs. Opendoor. Corelogic vs. Remine. Traditional brokers vs. Compass, and anyone else who got a check from a V.C. The times they are a changing.

Arguing over percentage points, or throwing a bunch of props around on stage, is not going to change things. Things are going get bloody. Guarantee it.

My advice to the old guard, get over yourself. You gotta to find new ways to win. So quit complaining and get to work. I mean, how bad could it be?

  2. Not entirely fair. Some of us aren’t scared in the least, we simply don’t like to sit idly by while others lie and deceive.
    I called Compass out for hijacking the technology discussion and claiming they brought it on, because it was the right thing to do.

  5. @J Phillip That’s a fair point. I guess I’m not immune to participating in this ultra hyperbolic atmosphere. ????
