Choosing a real estate agent -- reader asks for advice
A Wonk reader would like your input about a subject I figured would prompt some interesting discussion. Here's the situation:
He's looking for a real estate agent to help him sell his house and buy a replacement. One of the candidates happens to work for the same agency as the agent listing the home he's interested in buying.
"I’ve heard it’s not a good idea, but I get conflicting advice," says said reader.
