The ancient legend of Pandora's Box has become an idiom meaning "starting or opening up something that will cause many unforeseen problems." This definition applies even today to the world of my real estate memoir, PANDORA'S LOCKBOX. When we agents open a lockbox for the key to show a house, we never know what could be coming out.
The stage for PANDORA'S LOCKBOX is the 1980s and the early 90s when real estate regulation was in its infancy. Elaborate perks (like office parties, gifts, money, vacations, event tickets, fur coats, limo rides, free ads, wining and dining) were given to top agents as a bribe for their business. With current regulations, they no longer exist as they did then. Which is probably a good thing. We were all exhausted from working, playing, and partying non-stop.
In this book you'll meet me (Nico) and my fellow agents/friends (Lolly, Krista, Miriam and Ginger). While these chapters are based on our experiences, ask any real estate agent. Our stories are their stories, too.
