Pro bono work — do you, don’t you, won’t you, have you?

“NAR Must Add Pro Bono Provision to Realtor Code of Ethics” writes Joseph Ferrara on the Sellsius real estate blog. His point:

NAR ought promote the fact that public service is good for the community, good for the economy, good for business and good for the agent. It will distinguish (and elevate) the brand. Is the Realtor brand iconic? Prove it.

    I have given out plenty of free information and advice. Last I checked that is the only thing I have to offer to buyers and sellers; Information and knowledge of the process. I believe it helps me get more business later. However, I have not completed a transaction without compensation.
