Irina, Although I respect as an agent myself that there are companies out there that give you all the
support you need and training it will cost you ! The split are higher and your commission is less.
Think about that for a while and make your decision later. You can also scheduled appointments and meet with the Broker and see what they have to offer you as a new licensee.

Good Luck and Welcome to my world " REASL ESTATE"

Don't forget to check Keyes. I've had a great experience during the last 6 years. Now I'm planning on flying "solo" , so I won't be receiving any benefit if you sign in. Also, Keyes is not a franchise, it's family owned.
I like very much what Scott Hulen advised. And if you apply what he said on a favorable platform like my
Keyes Coral Gables office, for example , you will be part of the 10 % in 5 years, just like me. :)

I forgot to mention that some Real Estate franchises offer their agents monetary benefits for bringing in new agents. So their recommendations may be bias. by the way, Coldwell Banker Res. R.E. does not.

Meet with a few different offices and discuss their training with them. I find that most agents get the most support our of small independent offices instead of the big franchised offices.

I see this question all the time from newly licensed agents and I think this is one of the worst questions a new agent can ask. If you are asking this question I assume your current experience in real estate is somewhat limited? There was a time in real estate where the market was so hot, agents where basically order takers and required very few selling skills. This is generally not the case in today’s market. Sales are improving in most markets but good training and mentoring is a huge key to long term success in this industry. Many new agents are “A” personality types outgoing, driven, personable and naturally have what it takes to succeed in sales environment but real estate is not an ordinary sales position it also requires other skills such as perseverance, contract law, inspection criteria interpretation and negotiation just to name a few. It generally takes a couple of years and 30-40 transactions before a new agent finds their comfort zone. Having stated the above my recommendation is to not focus so much on the brand or the brokerage but focus on teaming up / finding a mentor or older successful agent looking to retire or at slow their pace. You will have to share more of your earnings with your mentor but the training, leads, aid and assistance they can provide will give you the best opportunity to succeed in this industry. The statistics for failure in this industry is staggering 90% of new agents are out of business in 5 years, 80% of all agents don’t do 5 transactions per year. People view this industry as a glamorous a get rich quick scheme and many brokers continue to “sell the dream” dreams can come true that’s why we buy lottery tickets, but hard work and sincere effort along with choosing a slower path with more training and mentoring will probably ensure a much better end result. Good Luck!

There are a lot of great brokers out there - choose the one that gives you the most bang for the money you're going to give them from your split.

Hope to hear from you!

Irina - sit down with as many brokers as you can, but realize that regardless of what type of organized training they provide, your best education will come from the experience you get from actually being part of the buying/selling/renting/process. Wherever you go, ask if they have a mentor program and sit down with each of your potential mentors before joining - chances are you'll learn more one-on-one with someone you connect with personally... Good luck!

Awww be aware of a recruiting system with some brand names. I would say interview a few and see who has the best fit for you and ask some of the agents how they like that company.
Be sure to ask about all the fees including the fees charged to the potential sellers and buyers aside from commission.
Best of luck, I wish you success!

Coldwell Banker has the best training for new agents and ongoing training for all their agents through Coldwell Banker University, regular seminars on hot issues, online training, as well as weekly sessions at the office on current topics, legal, technology, business generation, financing options, marketing, etc. In today's challenging market this is more important than ever. Other companies may offer you a higher split to start out, but you're pretty much on your own. I have been a Coldwell Banker agent for over 20 years. Good luck to you!
