One of my favorite Historical quotes about our Real Estate industry:
WHAT IS THE REAL ESTATE BOARD?
"The Real Estate Board is to the Real Estate profession what the Bar Association is to the lawyer and the Medical Association is to a doctor. It is a force for good. It is a force for the betterment of its practitioners and the public they serve. In such an association there are crystallized the rules of conduct, the guides and standards of stern discipline, which proclaim to the community the sense of integrity and the high qualities and ideals which you demand and which characterize the service of men of good will engaged in an honorable profession."
Justice Frankenthaler of the New York Supreme Court 1930's & 1940's
