Best of luck to you!
Keller Williams is hands down the best company to work with. Training, mentoring, coaching, lifestyle, and culture all exceed expectations. Its the reason Keller was one of the only companies to grow during the past couple years as agents have left the business. Splits are great, profit share is excellent, and the training is uncomparable.
I was with Coldwell for my first 5 years in the business, after switching to Keller, my business doubled, and has almost doubled again. Its the great people that are surrounding me that make the difference, my business coach, and the systems.
If your still not settled, read "Millionaire Real Estate Agent", and "Shift". They will give you the tools to jump start your real estate career. If you follow those principals you will not fail.
Give me a shout if you'd like to talk.
I spent 6 months researching companies prior to deciding where to start my career. To be perfectly frank, it really bothered me that so many companies were asking me to come work for them when they had no idea who I was! It seems that some companies only care about recruiting bodies with licenses, not who the actual people are holding those licenses.
I started with the only office who told me "We only take 3 new agents per year. You need to interview with (name withheld) and if she agrees to mentor you for 6 months, you can come work here". I was required to work long hours, attend 8 weeks of new agent training and had minimum sales goals to meet; however, it was the best training I could have received. The Managing Broker truly cared about seeing me succeed and was very involved with my training and education.
I highly recommend choosing who you work for by the office, not the company. The compensation? You start off without much and work your way up. If you have good support, you will make money. The compensation plan means nothing if you don't have the training and support. Also, try to find a mentor. That is the best way to learn and grow in the profession.
Good luck to you and I hope you succeed!

You should talk to as many agencies as possible and then make your decision. Like in anything you want to feel like you fit in and are part of the team. You will also want to know if they will be feeding you leads or are you on your own? Don't discount the smaller boutique style firms like Blu Skyy Realty, great place to work plus you get your own website.
