To get Rookies all you have to do is get the local list of new licensees. Getting established agents is much harder. Changing companies can set your business back 6 months. You need to offer them a better package and sup[port then they already have.

What kind of packages or supports do established agents look for at a boutique brokerage compared to a larger franchise?

For an established real estate agent, boutique vs franchise:

1. A higher commission split.
2. Attractive office in a very nice location.
3. Private office space.

An established/experience agent could be "technically challenged", make sure you provide support on new applications, software, etc. I find agents struggling with this issue everyday.

They should refer to the volume titled RECRUITING provided by the franchise.

Then they can access the broker's section of the local REALTOR Board, for a more localized source.

Finally, the broker should read my "Seven Things I Wish I Knew Before Getting Into Real Estate" blogs. If an exceptional recruiting plan can not be derived from all that data, this broker is in the WRONG business.

Now, it is possible this broker is the owner of 'Trolls and Goblins Real Estate, LLC'
For this broker there is a another option. Knowing that option requires a fee.

Best of success,
