It's an often interesting concept - "Real Estate Company" - Yes, not all realty firms are created equal. As you can see; some firms have International presence - while others maintain a local, hometown persona.

The bottom like is that more likely than not- Your license will be registered to A Company - BUT you will be employed as an independent contractor. So, yes your affiliation is with that company and you are supervised by that branch or locations Broker or Manager of Record.

There are MANY "Best Companies" in MIAMI. Some of these companies will out-right tell you that they are the BEST. Those are the ones to stay away from!

The 'bad' companies eventually go out of business and in their wake smoldering rubble and ruins.

Those with an enduring presence are all good companies.
However, this does not mean they are a good fit your you.

Obtaining your real estate license is the first step in creating your real estate business. As a small business owner, you have the obligation to create a business plan, a road map that gives your business direction. Things will not go well for you if you ignore the fundamentals.

Your business plan has quantified your resources, skills, sphere and intent. Now you need to find that organization that actually can support you achieving your goals.

Show me the numbers. Consider ONLY those brokerages who can show you the average annual transactions per agent in that office double or triples the national average of 9. The NUMBERS is the only proof that verifies the systems, training, oversight, compensation, infrastructure are conducive to success. Don't believe the hype.

Having identified the brokerage with the evidence of success, verify the broker will couple you with a mentor who has experience compatible with your business plan. If you do not do this you will, by default, be working with buyer and finding rental properties for others, and getting the business no one else wants. The moral: If you don't define the business you want, the business you don't want will find you, and like quicksand, take you to the place 95% of newbies end up...back to their previous employer.

The best company, Shakira, if the one that allows you to flourish. That can only happen if you know whether you want to be in the vegetable garden or the Orange Grove. It is incumbent on you to know the difference. That brings us back to Doe

Best of success,

The one with the most listings in the price range and area you want to base most of your marketing efforts, assuming they will let you have open houses in their listings. Best way to jump start is being located right in the path of people on the move. Good luck in your new career,
