Training is important so see what they offer. Some have in person classes while other Brokers leave you to take their online courses. Ask how many agents they have and what their production level is (how many deals per agent). That should tell you how successful that Broker is in the area and how well they support their agents in succeeding.
Find out what your commission splits are and make sure to read their contract agreement spelling out what happens if you leave.

Hi Trinity,

I recommend you interview three to five brokerage firms. Be sure to include Keller Williams Realty if there is one in your area. After you visit with a few brokerage firms, you will be clear on the questions you want answered.

The training, online and live classes through Keller Williams University, is outstanding and ever changing. The technology tools Keller Williams provides are the best in the industry. Go to kw.com and click on "Careers" in the lower right hand corner of the Main Page.

And, there is this little extra benefit that creates passive income called Profit Sharing.

Feel free to call me with any questions.

Warm Regards,
