Give him a call and tell that me and Mike recommended the company.
You can go 90/10 or montly desk fee-100% commission.
Call me and I can tell you why I think The Real Estate Experts is probably as good as any other big box brokerage.
If you are not wanting to pay the fees by join the Board of Realtors or the MLS. A real estate referral company is a great option. Take a look at http://www.ParkPlaceNetwork.com for a company that pays back top dollar.

The market is tough today as you may know. In times of difficulty can create opportunities.
Now, what agency should I work for? That is the million dollar question. Do you go with a higher payout company or a reputable name brand company? Do you make a decision on the the broker you interviewed because they were referred or the franchise itself?
Here is a little tale of reality:
After being in financial services for over 13 years I decided to take on real estate sales full time. It happened in late 2004. I started out with one of the Big 3 and during the heyday of real estate as the bubble was being created they offered a 1 month 7 day a week training to recruit new agents as the market was sizzling. The training was more of an overview on how to fill out contracts, listing agreements and market yourself through the company brand. The training was sufficient if you wanted to brand the company you are with and not yourself which is not bad if you are just starting out. In the real estate business it is all about PERSONAL branding. The more you know, the more deals you close, the more people you meet, the more your income will rise despite where you hang you license.
Get Ready for Beauracry.
Most agents rant and rave about their company because they are happy with one of three things: their payout ,getting leads, or just donâ€™t feel comfortable in making a move because of the comfort ZONE. I can guarantee you if any of those things change drastically you will be hearing a different tune. You will need to attend many meetings. If you like meetings and need that comfort of being in a so called â€œteam environmentâ€ go for it but you will not learn anything in the real estate REAL WORLD that could have been accomplished in a 2 hour classroom with a properly trained instructor at the Board of realtors. Well as you can see I am not into wasting time.
As a broker in most cases I do not disagree with some of the fees because it takes money to run a brokerage operation, however some can be uncalled for. Be careful with payouts and fees.
Get everything in writing!
Never, never sign any document with a Broker until you have outlined everything you spoke about in detail. Trust me this will be your best advice.
If I were to start my real estate career in todayâ€™s market I would only go to work with and agent or a broker regardless of company size who is willing to do the following:
1. Mentor me in this business.
2. Allowed me to shadow him everyday
3. Answer all or most of my questions
4. Give me direction
5. Create a Schedule
6. Compensate well for my efforts
7. Give it to me in writing
Good Luck in your endeavors and will leave you with this quote:
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.

I've been a real estate agent since 2006,I have visited and joined some real estate companies and the best I have found is Realty World Real Estate Center.
Check it out. You will love it.
Do yourself a favor and check out Keller Williams; the second largest and fastest growing real estate business in America. Their training is unbelievable and I would strongly suggest you pick up a copy of the Millionaire Real Estate Agent by Gary Keller.

Gabriel Palotas knows his stuff. There are MANY reasons and lack of reasons to choose a certain firm to affiliate with. Perception is the main determining factor in my opinion. IF- Miami Beach is going to be your "farm area" ~ I would look at ALL the offices on The Beach.
SBI, Keyes, EWM, La Playa, Coldwell Banker, Keller Williams, etc.
You may need training and possibly some sort of income while you are getting your feet wet. Perhaps a small local firm that will give you a chance to EARN while you LEARN will work for you.

If you are one that needs to learn and need mentoring go with an office that provides you the best support.
If you are going to work out of your house like most realtors do to day it really does not matter if you go with one or with an other. In either case I would join an office that is the Member of the Board of Realtors they provide you all the mentoring and education you need and a good opportunity to network. As a independent contractor you are truly on your own. A good association with a broker or manager makes working a pleasure find one that is compatible.
