As a new agent, training will be very important so be sure to ask about training resources and mentoring as you learn the business.
I would be happy to speak to you about my own experience - I have been with two brokerages - the first a very traditional brokerage and now Keller Williams.
Good luck and best,
You need to make an appointment with the office manager, and let them discuss their agent compensation plans.
Different companies offer different options.
Some companies will offer more perks than others.,
At that meeting, you need to sit down and take notes so you can compare and contrast what it will cost you, and what the commission splits may be.
I have to second Jeanne's voice. Each brokerage house has different approaches. Some are all about the company and you are just a replaceable "cog." A precious few, like Keller Williams, are about the agent and her businesss and they support us because they know it makes them better. I've worked with Weichert, Coldwell Banker, EXIT, and now Keller Williams. I will tell you in no uncertain terms that I've never experienced a company like KW.
Call me. I'd like to invite you to attend an incredible training session or sales rally...no cost, no obligation. I'm just excited to share the enthusiasum and save you some years of learning curve!
