Real Estate Agents Wake Up from California Dreamin'

It's not news, of course, that real estate agents across the nation have been quitting left and right since the real estate market took a nose dive.

As far back as 2007, in fact, one real estate agent-blogger even laid out her reasons "why it's not a bad idea for realtors [sic] to think about another profession."

"The housing market is going from a period of fast paced growth to a downturn. The amount of business has decreased rapidly...if, as a group, we can't see that the economy has changed, how are we fit to give advice to our clients about what they should do?" she wrote.

Well, here in California, one of the hardest hit of the housing-bubble-burst states, it would appear that many real estate agents heeded that advice.
