My strongest suggestion would be to select RE/MAX. They have the absolute largest advertising budget nationally that generates company brand awareness and acceptance. I have been with them for about 7 years and I can tell you all of my past and new clients know and accept RE.MAX as an industry leader.
Another great part for their agents is that they do not charge you ANY referral fee for leads their web site generates. I do not know of any other company that offers free referrals. They also are industry leaders in agent training. Their satellite network is also totally free to all of their agents.
I would suggest you at least stop in and visit with the office closest to where you are located. It may be the right choice for you too. Over 100,000 other agents around the world think the benefits are well worth the money.
Best of luck to you in your search!
I have just made the move to Keller Williams Realty after 6+ years with another company where I was a consistent top producer. 100% the BEST choice I could have made!!! Of the five leading companies across the country (Re/Max, Coldwell Banker, Prudential, Keller Williams and Century 21), Keller Williams is the only one that has grown in number of agents. There are many reasons behind this.
Our training is spectacular, our mission is clear and KW has a profit share system that will put addtional money in your pocket.
Please give me a call or send me an email if you would like more specific information.
