Nearly nine out of every 10 Aussie home owners do not trust anyone on a commission-based salary, new research has found.

The report, undertaken by YouGov Galaxy and commissioned by Upside Realty, also found that 79 per cent of respondents also believed that commission-incentivised agents use “half-truths and misconceptions” to get business.

The report revealed professions where commission is the root of consumer dissatisfaction. Car sales agents topped the list at 69 per cent, followed by real estate sales agents at 58 per cent and insurance agents at 56 per cent.
