Many of them actually will be clerks before the end of this all plays out.

not catchy enough... lacks pizazz.

I'll stick with realtwhore.

LOL!!!!! That picture just made my day!

I think Realtwhores is still more befitting--
I'm sorry to say, I was a Realtor once. We had an inside joke that the owners of the real estate companies were the richest pimps in the city. Keep in mind, the Real Estate Agent gets 1/2 or a little more of the commission. The Big Daddy pimps that own the companies get the other half for turning them out on the streets.

Butch said...

Thanks Keith, for the acknowledgement. I just call 'em as I see 'em.

However, I gotta agree with "Nomenclate your" in that it DOES lack pizazz. However, so do the vast majority of real estate clerks.

I'm trying to come up with something more creative. I'll let you know if anything bubbles up to the top (pun intended!).

How can you tell when a real estate clerk is lieing to you? Answer-- When you see there lips start to move.

I think "real estate sales clerk" would be better, it gives me a mental picture of someone in a blue coat behind the counter at a K-Mart.

Also, if you call them sales clerks people won't confuse them with file clerks who are actually doing something useful.

They will not last long as retail clerk/cashiers either. They will not be able to break the habit of stealing 6% and take all the proceeds collected for sales tax on the purchases!!

Ozzie Time here.

Good oil! I like both phrases. I think they'll all be brown eyed mullets befor the spring.

A mate of mine's got a clerk friend who hasn't had a closing sinee September (that's deadset). His cook's mad as a cut snake, but it stands out like balls on a dog that only a real dill would hold on that long.

This bloke and all the others are going to have to stop all the exy habits and start to fossick for buyers to make a quid. They'll probably find some poor soul who doesn't know Christmas from Bourke Street to fleece. That's the nature of the game.

Me? I'll just enjoy some amber fluid and be a spectator.

Hooroo. Ozzie Tim

Many moons ago, I worked as a clerk
at Radio Shack. I think calling
them real estate clerks is giving
the honest clerks a bad name. The
people I worked with would never
sell people into financial ruin.
