– Are we truly independent contractors? Or are we independent contractors when it comes to (not) being paid benefits and social security, and employees when it comes to “sales meetings”, “floor duty” and other “mandatory” things?
– To achieve real success, should we be “interdependent contractors”?
– Who’s really in control?
– Is a pulse and a few hundred dollars being necessary to get a license the reason why consumers look down on us?
I can’t express my personal views or say it much better than Matthew Ferrara did in his post entitled The Consumer-Unfriendly Myth of the REALTOR Independent Contractor. (It’s long, but definitely worth the read)
