Out-of-work ex-real estate agent Barbara Corcoran was on “Good Morning, America” this week to discuss “What your broker won’t tell you”.

“The house has been on the market for six months.”
“They’re building a skyscraper across the street.”
“I’m going to show you a crappy house first to lower your expectations.”
