You can do whatever you want. You can interview brokerages before taking your license and determine which one that suits you OR you can take your courses and pass the test and interview brokerages OR half way through your courses go and interview brokerages. There's no right or wrong answer its whatever that suits you. ... more

To obtain a brokers license in NY, you need 2 years as a sales agent and you need to have made some sales. As a guideline, the objective of getting a brokers license in NYC is to either lead a team, be an Office Manager or open your own brokerage. If this is not your objective, then why are you getting a brokers license.

As for "what activities may I do to support a broker" - the ONLY activity that your broker wants to see is closed sales. Nothing means more to a broker or Office Manager than closed real estate sales. This is what makes money for the brokerage and all the brokerage is interested in is making money to survive.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Unfortunately 3rd party real estate websites (Zillow, Trulia, etc.) are limited with search filters and cannot separate condos from co-ops. Zillow does have a search filter to separate them but it's not 100% accurate. I have seen listings that say condo when I know the building is a co-op and vice versa. Even listings from agents have it wrong.

The best method as a former realtor that I told buyers is: You need to know that co-op units are about $100K + cheaper than condo units. Therefore, when setting the price minimum / maximum that you can afford, under "Minimum" price - put a higher amount and under "Maximum" price - put down the highest amount you can afford.

Example: let's say you can afford up to $2 million condo. Your "Minimum" price is $1 million and your "Maximum" price is $2 million. This will eliminate all listings under $1 million which will likely be co-op buildings because their prices are under $1 million.

Frank Konarski Rios answered:
John, you should check--rather, more appropriately, your tenants should check--with an attorney in NY. Really, I don't think your problem is with the other landlord who was to lease to your current (and-soon-to-be-former) tenant; instead, your problem lies with your tenant. The tenant seems to be making her problem with her new landlord your problem. You have to come to kindly explain to your tenant that your arrangement to have her move out is between you and her, and although you are sympathetic to her plight, that plight of hers is outside the realm of your dealings with her. In general terms, it has been my experience that ... more
