Hi FD,

Dave - I agree with you that if this really worked, Realtors® would be doing it. However, I have a theory on why it "appears" they're not.

Yep... to boil down your response; 'the Pareto principal'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareto_principle

So... the book may actually be an excellent "How To" for selling homes, regardless whether you do it for profit or fees.

In an offhand way, it reminds me of the saying that some agents have 20 years of experience... but more have only their 1st year of experience, duplicaetd 20 times.
