Amen! Actually, our agent tells us she's seeing a lot more two-income couples buy places that they can afford on one income--in preparation for when kids come along. She says she thinks it's great!

I think a good realtor is interested in long-term relationships with his clients and cares about the future of his community. In our case, our agent believes, like we do, that both the kids and the community benefit from having a parent at home. While she may not make as much on an individual sale, she has happy clients who love their town. This is the second time we've used her, and we'll certainly use her again and recommend her enthusiastically.

In the long run, I think she'll do better than if she only cared about convincing her clients to buy the biggest house they can afford.
