As a boy growing up in a construction family, I never really understood the reason why. “That’s just the way things are,” my father explained one day. “It’s like oil and water, builders and real estate brokers just don’t mix.”
A few years later, on our way home from work one day, I decided to rile him up a little. “You aren’t going to believe it, but I heard about a builder who’s actually married to a real estate agent!”
You should have seen his reaction to this anomaly.
