It’s hard to work up emotion when you think the body’s been buried forever, but we’ll give it our best shot.

Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.

Well, so much for crying on cue. As it turns out, there was one agency out there still collecting a piddly 10% commission on sales, but no more. Who knew? The Wylie Agency is succumbing to the industry standard 0f 15%*, effective the beginning of the new year. An agent simply can’t survive on less these days. It’s the cell phones, we’re convinced. And the Internet. And probably the price of coffee.

* – Math not being our strong suit, we haven’t bothered to translate this increase into pounds sterling.
