That is the benefit of being a Realtor is that you can work where ever you want ie office or home. A lot of brokers require new agents to work in the office for the first year. There are benefits in doing that. You learn a lot from conversations with other agents in the office and it keeps you motivated and focused on your job. I work out of the office but I do like the freedom of working out of my house when it is stormy weather or not feeling great etc. If you are meeting clients etc, it is best to meet them at an office. Hope this info helps.... more
They are SLOW to pay until you start to complain. They still owe me money. We were completing 30-40 BPOs for them per month at 40.00 per BPO and 150.00 per commercial it adds up. Another colleague in my office was owed over 10K. I don't think they are in financial trouble in as much they just don't pay. I know they laid off quite a few people a short while ago. Specifically someone I used to work with a lot.... more

Visit, interview and watch. Visit some offices and meet with some brokers. See what they have to offer and see how you might fit in. Each office will lure you with a different package of benefits. Figure out what you need most, training, leads, commission splits, etc and try to get a sense of who provides the best package for you. Don't be lured with a high split, but minimal supervision or training as a new agent. You can't spend 100% of $0.00. On the other hand, if the office requires thousands of dollars in training expenses just to start and has you in a classroom all the time, you won't make any money either.

Buyers Be where of Online Mortgage Calculators, Agents warn your clients. I had a super sweet client last week who knew he/she was qualified to buy a home for $200K but didn’t want that high of a payment.
Not really if you ask me. When I first received those, I'd look at it, but now they go to my spam email.
If I have a client for specific properties, I am like a hawk all the time, watching for those properties to show up, I don't need other people's email blast to remind me.
I do have property sites which allows consumers to see the property more closely (MLS only allows for so many tiny little pictures), and often attract them to come and see the house during open house or ask their Realtors to show them the home. Not from email blasts though (I also received a couple of 'hate' mails when I tried it a few times before).
It might work for a very unique property.
There is no 'standard'. Commissions are all negotiable, so it really depends on what you and your agent work out. It can vary widely. I personally will offer a flat fee, or other options, that fit a particular situation. I hope that helps!

Go with the one showing the most RESULTS!
Anyone can promise you the moon but not everyone can show you the the evidence that their process works by simply allowing you to see the RESULTS.
Most brokerages operate on the business model that "IF you pay the fee you are ok with me." They will take anyone on board. One brokerage here in the Tampa area has 3,000+ agents and the brokerage does a whopping number of transactions....untill you ask the right question, one would think this mega broker is at the pinnacle of the real estate industry. Not so.
The right question for those who intend to make money, to be in business beyond two years is, "What is the average annual agent transaction for this office?"
Those brokerages who practice 'accidental' real estate will average around 9 transactions annually. Productive offices, the one you want to be a part of, average 17, 21, 35 transactions annually per agent. These results ARE the validation the system, compensation, training, infrastrucure and support actually WORK and produce RESULTS!
When you have identified the productive offices, beg, borrow, steal...do what you must to join a team or be assigned a mentor. Share your businesss vision/plan with your mentor then simply follow the directions provided. You will learn by doing and earn by completing and all done under the supervison of your mentor.
Be aware, you neither learn or earn warming a seat in a classroom. If you are ready to "hit the ground running" your choice should not be too difficult.
Best of success,

I don't have a guest log, because my goal is to sell the client's house, not to try to get buyer clients.
In my market it is rare to find a seller willing to accept a contingency to sell current home. My market is unusual as it is mostly investment or 2nd homes. If your buyer is looking for a house before she lists hers then she is going to have to make a darn good offer on a house to persuade the seller to allow the contingency for the sale of her house -- Which Is Not Even Listed.
Good luck.... more
