I am a new agent myself - and joined KW - and I have a mentor.

What I did..
Having many years of high level sales and knowing several very successful real estate agents I began meeting with them and seeing if they felt I was a good fit. My current industry is impacted by some Union changes and rather that work much much harder to make the same. I thought why not work hard (since I'd have to anyway - no matter what I did ) and go into something that had an even higher income potential.

I got the names of VERY successful people from numerous firms.
KW
Coldwell Banker
Botheby's
Re/Max
And others..

I took each agent to lunch/coffee - again, they were personal references - and they were all SUCCESSFUL.

I learned ONE main thing.
NO one makes it happen for you - they all said this.
WE have to be self starters and go in and make things happen.

If your mentor is not good - GET a different one.
there are great mentors.
In fact - (if I did not already have mine) - I've come across at least 3 teams at KW that I would have BEGGED to be a part of ... And, they had STRUCTURE and throw you in the deep in.. such as cold calls (with a script they work out with you ) etc.

You have to go online and research and read and see what ALL the others are doing. And, network. the more other agents you meet and give each other moral support - the better.

Here's to us new agents - May we be successful and quickly.

Well, it seems to be a common practice with BAC. I filed bankruptcy in 2011 on my CountryWide mortgage, and in 2012, they sued me! BAC has had 4 different law firms handling this mess over the last 5 years. In the process, they even took the lien off the home I mortgaged and placed it on my "Free & Clear" homestead! Since 2014 tax deeds have been sold on the Mortgaged property, they placed forced insurance on my Free & clear home! Now in another twist of events, over a conference call, have offered me Cash for Keys? All I can say, is Pray, Pray, Pray, keep great records, hire a "Land Attorney" and Pray some more! They have harassed me over the last 5 years with horrible "Property Inspectors"! I even have police reports to prove most of them! They have broke several laws and as such are now legally responsible for all of my attorney fees! This is not over yet, so I have no real advice, except to get an attorney! Good Luck and I'll be praying for everyone that is being harmed by BAC! ... more
