The authors Steven D Levitt and Steven J Dubner make the suggestion that the agent doesn't care about the client because the effects on commissions are insignificant. Funny I have seen the opposite accusation that agents scratch and claw for every penny. I liked the book, however it fails to understand or even offer any details about why the agent might have such success with a property that is their own and simply assumes the worst. Do you want to know why?
