As a new real estate agent, it may be hard for you to decide which real estate brokerage firm to “hang your hat.” From having a friend who works at XYZ Realty to remembering the agent who sold you your home with ABC Realty to seeing all the brokerage lawn signs, commercials, and billboards, it can be an overwhelming and stressful process.
But have no fear! (LOL – I’m being a little corny, but hopefully that put a smile on your face during this time of deliberation.)
Here is a short yet informative guide that will help you to identify and recognize the features you desire most in a brokerage: The Rookie Roadmap to Selecting a Real Estate Brokerage
Once you have identified the type of place you want to be associated with, the next step will be to schedule meetings with as many realty firms as possible in order to interview the managing broker and chat with agents who may be in the office at the time of your appointment. This will help you see which office meets your standards.
I want to encourage you to not settle or cut short the interview process. The time, effort, and energy you put in now finding the right realty “home” can save you potentially thousands of dollars in lost revenue later. Be selective and inquisitive so that your first real estate firm experience is a good one.
Here’s to your success!
