My wife and I attended a Realtor function in Sterling Lakes (Rosharon, Tx) as there are several builders in that community, i.e. First Texas, Triumph Homes, Westin Homes, Castle Rock, DR Horton, etc. I have sold several homes in that community prior to the developer selling several lots to LGI. Many of the residents are extremely upset that the developer (Land Tejas) sold lots to LGI as they believe it has affected the value of their properties. After my wife attended the Realtor function we stopped by LGI and the very first thing the sales representative said was "we don't need Realtor to bring thier clients." My wife and I looked at their totally stunned as what would make anyone say that?
As a Sales Manager for both local and national homebuilders for approx. 15 years, the builders I worked for would have fired a Sales Counselor on the spot for making such a comment as 90% of the builders business comes from Realtors, except LGI. Hmmmm
