In this episode, I chat with Jim Klinge of Bubbleinfo.com about his prediction that the end of buyer agency is nigh *without* government action. Jim has been a real estate broker in the San Diego area for decades and has seen the industry change from the ground up. We talk about how the market has changed, how incentives are now against buyer agency, and what we might see over the next few years as a result.
