Every brokerage company offers something different and has different fee structures. I would ask yourself, are you looking for leads from a brokerage or team or are you going to start up your own business from scratch. Most companies don't give out leads and you have to start from scratch. There are some companies that offer lots of training like Keller Williams but they do take a large percentage of your commissions. So I would call around all the companies in their area and ask:
1. What is commission splits
2. What are desk fee's
3. What do fee's cover
4. Are they any training, do I get a mentor
Then from there try to see what your needs are and find a company that fits your needs.... more

Congratulations on having such a great job, and wanting to buy your first home. I agree that buying would be a better option if you can afford it, and now is a great time to buy. You don't indicate if you have a down payment saved up, so its hard to know if you would be able to afford and qualify for a home in the $2-3 million range. The first thing you need to do is speak with a lender. They can run your credit and check your debt to income ratios etc. There are numerous calculators online that can you give you an idea as to whether you would qualify, but without speaking to a lender, its hard to know if in fact you will qualify.
If you need a recommendation for a lender, I am happy to provide you with one. After you've spoken with the lender we can discuss whether buying or renting makes more sense for you. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
It is common to ask the seller to sell or include certain items that the buyer might want with the home. Have your Realtor include any item you might want, but be sure to be careful and not ruin the deal over something you can buy later on. This rule also works with certain things you would like excluded form the sale of the home, for example an old spa in the backyard that can be costly to remove if you had to pay for it yourself. Anything is negotiable, best of luck!
its about 20 min by car, or around 12 miles,
but that depends on time of day and traffic conditions.

When you refer a buyer or seller to another Realtor, you are NOT going to be the one who has any liability in the transaction. Only the agent who receives the referral is subject to liability in the way of disclosures, errors & omissions, etc.
If you are a real estate licensee, you would just sit back & let the other agent do the work & you would receive a previously agreed upon referral commission when the deal closes.
If you're nervous that you're going to refer a friend to an agent you have in mind. Maybe you'd like to just refer them to me. Read my profile, see that I've given over 1700 well thought out answers to consumers since approx. 2007 & I will take care of them.
Shoot me an email directly, or give me a call, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for Replies or other answers posted after mine.

There are sites which you pay for. I would suggest using a Realtor who is knowledgeable in the area you would like to buy in. They can send you the properties, including recent comps. No charge!
Please feel free to email me with any further questions.

By hurt do you mean hurt resale value? Not much if the views are really great. What area are you in? I am in Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silverlake, and there are a few really great new listings that are 3+2 or 3+3 for excellent prices. In fact there is an architectural 3+3 home for $749,000 in Silverlake that is amazing that I just saw.
Contact me anytime and I can be of more help to you!

I do the pro advertising and it helps. 39.95 / mth
Buying the zip codes last time around was a bit on the futile side.
Then again perhaps my advertisement wasn't catchy?
I have noticed others did not do well doing it either as the advertising is open.
Zillows is locked out, but then again I think they may be a bit like cell phone companies,... contract etc.
You can give it a try or you can pass altogether.
The smart money in my opinion is to spend the hundred or two or three on your own website that will be there for a year. Thats just my opinion. I may be right.
