As a former realtor, no need to look for a broker now unless you ONLY want to work with a specific broker. The truth is most brokers will take any new licensed agent to work for them. You will need to interview at several of them and choose the one you feel most comfortable with.
This is not like a real job interview, so no need to get nervous, anxious, etc.
Always remember, as a licensed agent, you are an independent contractor - NOT AN EMPLOYEE!! This means you are considered self employed and running your own business. This explains why when you "interview" at different brokerages, it is not the same as interviewing for a job at a company. You are NOT getting "hired."
Unfortunately in real estate - brokers know the golden rule: Out of all new licensed agents, about 80% will either quit, be forced to leave or run out of money within their first year or two. Therefore, brokerages look at new license agents as recruiting "bodies" to their brokerage - not recruiting an employee. The person you interview with is thinking "let's see how long this new agent lasts."
I'll post more separately.
