Sure, sure, Realtors show support for their colleagues any number of ways.

They include:

—Offering price opinions on about-to-be-listed homes;

—Offering price opinions on homes that are already on the market (and not selling) ” plus, ideally, some marketing suggestions.

—Simply offering a sympathetic (and discreet) ear when a colleague is wrestling with a challenging issue.

However, at least in everyday usage, when Realtors talk about “showing support” for fellow agents, they typically mean one, specific thing:  showing up at the colleague’s Broker Open’s, and ” when applicable ” any Exceptional Properties meetings that they host.
