Forget the agents, most of the public out here says it that way.  Personally, as someone who's name is Ryan and who's been called Bryan his whole life by people and who's last name has been pronounced "Higgins" more times than there are gold bars in Fort Knox, I don't give a crap how I or anyone else pronounces it.  All they need to know is 805.905.4000 to list their house!

My Realtor grandparents would have corrected you on the spot, they hated that pronunciation.

But Americans miss pronounce a lot of words like they say daily. As a retired DJ and student of the Japanese culture, my biggest pet peeve is how you all mispronounce Karaoke.

You say "CARRY-O-KEY" when it's pronounced "Kara-O-Kay". How you ever got "Carry" from "Kara" is beyond me. Oh, I have a whole list
