“We are at the precipice of a dramatic transformation that could devalue the irreplaceable expertise and dedication of real estate professionals,” Ma warns. “The potential changes will reshape our industry into a shadow of its current self, becoming less diverse, less competitive, and less consumer-focused.”

As the concept of “compensation decoupling” gains traction, Real Messenger is not merely observing from the sidelines. Instead, it is igniting a nationwide call to action, encouraging agents to voice their concerns and fight for the future of the real estate industry.

#AgentsForAgents believes that:

  • We Are Essential: Agents are not just a part of the real estate transaction; we are the backbone, providing irreplaceable expertise and guidance.

  • We Should Control Our Destiny: Our listings, our leads. We advocate for an environment where agents are empowered by technology, not vice versa.

  • We Challenge the Giants: Portals like Zillow and Redfin envision a future without us. We envision a future where our role is central and indispensable.

  • We Embrace Change Through Unity: Only through open discussion can we drive reforms that preserve the integrity and prosperity of our industry.

The campaign calls on agents to take the following actions:

  • Showcase your support by adopting the #AgentsForAgents banner on Real Messenger and other social profiles.

  • Share your story: Post testimonials about the importance of an agent’s role, using the campaign hashtag to voice out as a community.

The campaign is slated to run in real estate media outlets and social channels beginning today.
