Real Estate Brokerage Service Quality: An Examination
Service quality is an important issue in the U.S. economy. Perceptions of what constitutes quality service may differ between consumers and service providers. Greater disparity may exist between perceptions of the quality of service actually provided. This study reports on attitudes of recent homebuyers and real estate agents in the metropolitan Boston area. Using the SERVQUAL model, we test for agreement between providers' and consumers' view of quality and for consistency with other service arenas. Previous work indicated that consumers had different expectations for the real estate business. Our results do not support that belief.
