Hi! I have to say that I started my career just four years ago when I joined Keller Williams Realty as a brand new agent. I am now a multi-million dollar club member and the top single agent in my office. I believe had it not been for the training that Keller Williams offers (most of it free), I would not have been able to take my business as far as I have. If you want to email me, I would love to share how our company business model is different from most other traditional real estate companies. This year, Keller Williams has surpassed CB in agent count.

The company does not sell homes. It's that individual agents actively that do!

Banana realty :)

You are probably talking about Exit Realty, which is basically all about recruiting and dumping. They are an agent mill of sorts. I'd stay away and sign with a major like Weichert, CB, C21, Re/Max. You want that name recognition when you go on your first listings. Basically that will be all you have going for you at first. Once you are good and have a sphere of influence aside from family and friends, I'm talking about strangers who have used you and will recommend you, you can then work anywhere. But when you start out, stay with an organization that has a lot of listing activity in the area in which you will be working.

Thank you for the advice, I appreciate it, The one i interviewed with seem to offer a lot of training ,..sponsors, roleplaying, i think they offer an 8 week program ( not free) but i think they want to recruit people for this training, they do have listings , but it is more of a training ground....I know i do need the training but i just feel they are more about recruiting than anything else. I will definitely interview with other brokers, CB is my next stop, i am not sure about their fees and so on..I want to be successful as a real estate agent and i understand it takes work, and i am willing to put the work in, i am looking for a company I will be happy with, comfortable with. my research on this subject has led me to many brokers just trying to recruit just to get the monthly fees, it has left me a bit weary. I hope to find a good company that truly cares about the team and offers great training . Thank you again for great advice..wish me luck :)

Ask your self the questions, does the broker you would like go with meet your standards, ethics, morals and values? Do they match the business model you have set up for yourself. Do they offer the training you are looking for.

Interview with 10 brokers, and pick the one that wants you to succeed, concentrates you working your book of business and offer education, education, education. Don't worry about the splits, you have to crawl before you can run.
