Just like many people, I did not realize the impact of good middlemen. From real estate brokers, car dealers, to middle managers, they play a crucial role in reducing the costs of doing business.
In a world were we need to specialize to thrive, a good middleman adds value by reducing the hassle of looking for buyers or sellers, meeting and qualifying leads. And, just like you are an expert in your domain, a good middleman is an expert in reducing transaction costs for you.
If you do not have the time and expertise to get value for your money, you may need a good middleman.
