BEST ANSWER
I was with CB for ten years before opening my own shop.

I now have a brokerage that does real estate that meets what my first year expectations were.

My agency is designed to allow the agents to sell and not have to worry about administrative tasks, advertising, setting up appointments or giving away every penny of their hard earned dollar.

If you would like to discuss what we have to offer, contact me. Gail@GailGladstone.com. 631-425-6150.

Kristi,
Follow the results.
Go with the office showing the highest average of transactions per agent.
Check your bank balance before you go to a training class. Check it when you finish your training. Did your balance go up?
It will when you complete a transaction.
It's a business not a hobby.

My experience has been that the office is only as good as the manager.

I recommend that you first find out as much as you can about the company and when you have found a company that parallels your viewpoints on integrity, training and principles, start interviewing the manager of each office.

If you wish to discuss this or have further questions, I am always available to help other Realtors.

Kristi,
The most improtant thing for a new agent in considering which brokerage to affiliate with is the training offered. The things you are taught to earn your license and very different than the skills necessary to succeed in the real world of real estate. I would not put much emphasis on the split structure in the beginning, but rather go where the learning opportunities are best. The rest will come later as you become more experienced.

Yes, try not to interview with Brokers who illegally put their commissions out there(below) and recruit anybody they can for their own benefit. MUst say, in my opinion I find one of your answers below to be very amateuish. I have been offered many things by other Brokers, but not on line!

Hello-Make a list of questions you may have and write down the answers for each agent. You need to like and trust the person you are going to have a long/short term business relationship with. Do not base your decision on the price, you should be provided comparative sales in your area. Make sure the agent is going to keep in touch with you on a regular basis. Open communication between the 2 of you are very important.
I hope this was helpful. Best of luck to you.

Call me if you have some time to discuss your options. Not all brokers are created equal. Some offer more of what people are looking for for their objectives than others. 713-253-3084. Thanks.
