Hi There:

When I wanted to join a company I interviewed virtually all the big chains. I am an Engineer by education so everything for me goes back to analysis and numbers. I wanted to be a part of a chain cause the name recognition and brand has tremendous value. Exit Realty Access, LLC which is a part of Exit Realty Chain made the more sense for me both financially as well as logically.

Here are the benefits that drew me to the company:

Name recognition Exit has 1300+ offices & approx 45000 agents
No garbage fees (ex: desk fees, copying/faxing fees, …)
FREE leads. This system costs a few thousand dollars a month to our brokerage firm but it is free for you
We offer FREE Website
No mandatory floor time
No mandatory office meetings
Extensive weekly in-house and 24/7 online training programs
In-house short sale negotiator FREE of Charge to you and your seller
In-house Escrow Company & notary public
Affiliate lender (with dedicated mortgage person assigned to our office) to qualify buyers/get fast pre-qualification letters, …

We also have two offices one in Kissimmee and one in Altamonte Springs which is nice cause we cover a large area.

Feel free to call or email me if you would like to set up a time to meet up to chit chat and see if it is a good fit for you.

In my experience it has little to do with the "Brand Name" and everything to do with the broker. I have worked at Big Label companies where the Broker suck the happiness from the air for all agents.

I agree with some below that my best experiences were with Charles Rutenberg Realty in Orlando. The management there; Monica, Jim and Mary were like family.

I moved to La Rosa Realty to be closer to home and it is awesome....one of those places where you want it to be morning so you can go to the office. And they are expanding like crazy.

The best brokerage to work at is where you feel welcomed....and that is a different place for every style of agent.

I think 'Burp Breath Land Exchange' in Ocala is the best in Florida. They serve a complimentary daily lunch of saltines and humus.

A close runner-up would be "Coldnose Enterprises" in Key West. The have a standing policy of bring your dog to work. Now how cool is that! Those resident cats don't care to much for this policy.

Now, if you hang a few parameters around your question such as, "to make money' or. 'get your home sold,' the winners may be different.

Best of success to you.

In Florida? Possible the best answer to this would come from considering this in regions. IMO, this is one step below seeking the best real estate company in the country.....to what end?

If you are looking to sell full-time as a Realtor, Remax is a top notch company if you can afford the desk fees monthly/annually.

If you are looking for a real estate referral company and are only interested in referring prospects all over the world and earning a "referral fee" and not having to pay the MLS or the Board. Take a look at Park Place Realty Network http://www.ParkPlaceNetwork.com.

Depends on what you are looking for in a company. Brand/Name Recognition, Training/Mentorship, Culture/Atmosphere, etc. I enjoy working for smaller firms with Brokers I can trust and rely on. Sometimes it hurts you, like when clients think bigger is better, but overall I enjoy the culture of a smaller company.

Here in Palm Beach County, a lot of agents choose Waterfront Properties. Also, Illustrated Properties and Keller Williams. We have the REMAX and those as well, but I would say those 3 are very popular.

Keller Williams Realty has propelled my business to a level I never imagined I would get to in such a short.period of time. Their extensive training programs and family culture mentality provide all of their new and experienced agents with wonderful resources that I was not able to find at any other brokerage.

Is it possible that those that have a vested interest or existing relationship may not have the ability to see things clearly....this is like voting for the "king and queen" of the prom.

It depends on your purpose for asking. Are you looking for a company to work with? Are you already a solid producing agent? If this is the case than I agree with REMAX.

If you are a buyer or seller looking for the largest or best known RE company in Florida and the world, than the answer is still REMAX.

If you are a newly licensed agent, looking for a place to start, and learn, with little pressure and overhead, and good training, I recommend Watson Realty. REMAX is best for experienced established producing agents.
