Your question and request are very important at this time in your real estate career. This is 'the" question that your propective broker shouild address. Be aware the all promise the moon and deliver coal. You must ask the question that reveals the intent of the broker. That question is:
"What is the average annual transactions, per agent, in this office?"
The national average is 8. A brokerage with an average close to 9 is simply collecting fees, not creating succissful real estate professionals.
The averages you want to see are 18, 23, 35 transaction per agent. A brokerage whos agents is maintaining this level of productivity is VALIDATION the training, systems, compensation, marketing. lead generation, inforstructure and support systems work and are highly effective.
When you identify the brokerage, beg, borrow. steal..what ever you must to get invited on board. You should condsier joing a team, or your broker will assign a mentor to you.
Now, it is up to you whether you really want to thrive in this business or simply be comfortable.
You Learn by doing.
You Earn by finishing.
You do neither warming a stool in a classroom.
Best of success,
