At a recent Buyer’s Agent Boot Camp hosted in St. Louis by Corcoran Consulting and Coaching, attending agents learned that the three-letter word that begins with the letter “T” is a non-acceptable, non-negotiable word. With such an emphasis on avoiding the “T” word as part of their incredible company culture, I decided to have a closer look.

I’ve noticed a significant difference in the attitudes of the people around me as they stop t%#ing and start doing.
