Tim Ellis is the founder of Seattle Bubble. His background in engineering and computer / internet technology, a fondness of data-based analysis of problems, and an addiction to spreadsheets all influence his perspective on the Seattle-area real estate market.

    I found both of Glenn Kelman’s bits interesting. I find it especially interesting that other agents are willing to listen and discuss now that the market is down and they are looking for new ways to relate to customers and grow their businesses. But I have to wonder how genuine the effort is, and whether everything will return to business as usual should real estate come roaring back.

    Glenn Kelman, Redfin CEO: “people don’t trust agents..(The same is for many professions when someone profits off the sale from another) However, with the very low barriers to become an Agent I would say people do NOT RESPECT Agents/Realtors and the insanity of 6%). How could you TRUST anyone that profits so much from you doing something?
