Old soldiers never die, they just fade away.

–General Douglas MacArthur

Old Realtors never retire . . .  they just co-list.

–Ross Kaplan

In “What’s 100% of $0?,” I discussed the various scenarios when co-listing makes sense.

Here’s one more:  an older Realtor is winding down their practice, and pulls in a younger associate to handle the day-to-day listing prep and management.

Does that serve the client’s interest(s)?

It all depends on who the senior Realtor is — and who’s the junior one.
