Realtors still fighting prudent lending,
Better yet, the Realtors® can use their “Open House” signs on all foreclosed properties to attract vagrants and downtrodden people.
The Bankers would provide a great service to society by allowing the poor to have a place to live while allowing shadow inventory time to diminish and prices to stabilize.. The occupants would obtain squatters rights and if you’ve seen “Pacific Heights”, it takes an act of God to have someone evicted from their home.
Other than the sign, I haven’t come up with any value the Realtors® bring to the table. I’m still working on that one.

REALTOR argument for owning a hippopotamus,
...except realtors go oink..oink ... oink
Therefore, to clarify the old idiom, “this little piggy went to market”, I now know the saying was referencing the real estate market.
And when the piggy cried “wee, wee, wee all the way home”, a realtor® must have just received their commission.
I assume they will deposit the cash in their piggy bank. (redundant)
And a Hippo is just an over gluttonous pig (realtor®).

Realtors Up To Same Old Scams,
why don't people just use a real estate lawyer? It will be much cheaper than paying some middle man 3% just because they have a pulse.
Either way, you dodged a bullet there.
I do not understand the process an making an offer in CA, so I refer to the model used in AZ:
The listing agent is given 6% of the selling price if they complete the entire transaction as per the listing contract. If MLS is used, reciprocity of 3% goes to the buyer agent.
Someone is required to open the door to view the property; this is usually the seller or buyer agent. I do not know of any lawyers that provide this service.
If the buyer is to make an offer, a standard real estate contract is used that can be modified with additional language and/or addendums. A date/time is set to receive a response.
A lawyer or title service can provide services during the escrow process, but this is after the offer is accepted. Therefore, I do not see how you can use a lawyer and save 3% of the sales price.
