Can your real estate agent change the actual market?

The answer is yes.  Whilst the market is driven by external influences that are numerous and varied, the commodity of property is transacted between people so it is logical that the attitude and approach of the parties involved; buyer, seller, and agent has a huge effect on the individual transaction which in turn has a bearing on the overall market.
