In the results, a full 94% of home buyers and 91% of home sellers who worked with Real Living network sales associates reported being “very satisfied” with the results and service provided by their Real Living network real estate professional. According to the latest report from the National Association of REALTORS®, only 62% of buyers and 64% of sellers said they were very satisfied with the buying process and service provided by their real estate professional.
