Most brokerages focus on all properties, REO, Short Sale and "Regular." At Keller Williams we have an REO division that provides training and access to REO properties, in addition to a commercial and luxury homes division. You probably only have 1-2 years left of solid REO/Short Sale business, so you don't want to limit yourself.
A broker needs to provide training, support and a generous commission structure. At Keller Williams we have 1-2 training classes every day, in addition to marketing and lead generating sessions. We also have the best commission structure.
We hire 6-10 new comers every month and put them through our 2 week training program, with mentoring and coaching provided for 1 year.
You should be able to make over $75,000 first year, if you have a solid sphere of influence, you work hard, market yourself and meet people. We can customize a business plan for you, so you can hit your goals. Many new agents make more than that depending on their level of ability and influence.
