Hi John, check out these 2 links. I think you will find the answers you arte seeking. I would ask this however, do you want to undertake the responsibilities (mostly financial) right now? many excellent Broker candidates are working for our company as well as our competition right now, because of the high cost of insurance, facilities, and Marketing, just to mention a few. They plan on riding out the next 1-2 years with us, and then moving into their own Brokerage. A thought for you. Since we have a Residential & Commercial Division, I am sure we could find a place for your services. We also have a "Virtual Agent" program. I wish you the best of luck, hope that helps.
