Do you think real estate agents really earn their commissions?

I'm sure there are exceptions and there are some wonderful agents out there, BUT, you list your townhouse for $250,000 and it sells in 1 week, and you pay the agent $11,000 out of what's left. Did the agent really work hard for that money if it was listed with I've sold my own houses twice now and my cost each time was advertising, up to about $4,000.

Does this world really need real estate agents and car salespeople? Or is it just another big con?
