FSBO's, the scourge of the Real Estate industry, how dare they think they can sell their home themselves.  Well, they can, they do and we as REALTORS act the same in some aspects, but in a slightly different way!  But then, so do FSBO's. I've known of REALTORS that have sold their own homes, some...
