The New York Times has an article today about real estate agents and divorce.  In a divorce, someone is moving out, and frequently the house is sold.

Real estate agents and brokers have to represent two people who are sometimes not speaking to each other.  They may have to deal with court orders, half empty closets or a spouse in residence that doesn’t want to sell and move.

Sometimes an agent’s most difficult task is not keeping the divorce under wraps, but navigating between the two clients who are in the middle of it.  If you are a real estate agent, tell us some of  your stories about selling a house in the middle if a divorce.
