    It's no secret that some 20 major brick & mortar retail chains are on the financial ropes, rating agency downgrades are prevalent, and just last week J.C. Penney announced the closure of 140 stores and two major distribution centers. Just three weeks ago, I was called to discuss analyzing the real estate holdings of a major department store chain; on the other line, a hedge fund that wanted to buy the debt of the chain, but was fearful of how the real estate could be reused. And of course, internet shopping trends continue to batter the brick & mortar model. On Black Friday, internet based shopping actually eclipsed purchases made by consumers in stores.

    Much of an individual's success as a real estate broker or salesperson is built on the good reputation he or she develops with buyers, sellers, affiliates and other licensees.

In fact, licensees may actually lose business, particularly with sellers who do not want their agent to disclose everything he or she knows about the subject property.
