Hi Syed,
Great question. I suggest that you meet with a few different brokers and offices before you make a decision. Each office offers a something a bit different and each has it's own style. What's right for one agent may not be the best for another. Education or continuing education, as well as training, are very important for your success and professionalism. If you want to meet for a cup of coffee to have an open discussion, let me know. I'm at KW Memorial. Regards and good luck.

I joined Keller Williams as a brand new agent. There were many agents in the office, seasoned and fresh. I learned from many and along with others. My brokerage was located in west Houston but I believe most KW branches are similar. Joining a team may also be a great way for you to gain experience.

I would suggest you schedule a couple of appointments, go tour offices that are in your area. Look at what everyone has to offer then decide what work best for you! Each office is going to have a different feel to it, and what works for some wont for the next. It all about where your are comfortable and will be allowed to shine! Good Luck, Welcome to this amazing profession!

Hi Syed,

Your first year in Real Estate you will need mentoring and education. I agree with you. I would choose a brokerage that can provide the practical training. Certainly you need to visit the brokerage, see the offices and facilities, and meet with the agents, learn how they feel about it. Also you might look into the location of the brokerage and their transaction volumes and number of agents. The brokerages are independently managed thus same franchise might be different in their offerings. Give me a call if you want to visit my brokerage and get answers to your questions.

Regards.

Hi Sayed, My current brokerage Exp Realty, LLC has excellent live training throughout the week. If you miss any training you can listen in or watched the recording available 24/7. The training is taught by our top producing Icon agents who are constantly closing real estate transactions every month. Also, you being a new agent, you will have be required to have a mentor to help you train and close on transactions. You have a choice to choose one local in your area. I do recomnend my sponspor Mickey Cavazos to be your mentor since he has been in the business several years and has closed about 50 transactions this year. To be a mentor, you have to meet production requirements and attend Exp training to become certified. Another benefit of exp is the starting 80/20 split, no royalty fees, cap on EO insurance and cap at $16000 ($80000 gross commission sales) to start earning 100%, $75 monthly tech fee for your two CRM platforms, Revenue Share program, and earn company stocks that is now traded in NASDAQ Since this Monday May 21, 2018 through any type of real estate transaction you conduct. If you want to learn more, please call me at 409-443-1900. I be happy to answer questions over coffee or lunch.

If you go with a larger brokerage you will lose a lot of the individual attention you will get at a smaller one. I try to help new realtors not only by not having desk fees or any charges. I also pay for your signs, business cards , badges, photos and decals for vehicle. So basically you have nothing to pay so you can get busy building your business. I have high commission splits and they do not start over every year. You stay the same or go up. Lots of training, will Check every contact for you. Any listings I pay for professional photos and virtual tours. I also give out lots of leads and only charge 5 percent for them. I supply with a web site and a supervisor to work with you getting you set up completely to rock and roll. I also allow you to do open houses on my listings so you start getting buyers right away. Call me and let’s talk about your future . Penny Clissold- Clissold Properties- 19059 Champion Forest #103

You need to go to a broker that has the tools for you to learn the basics of Resl Estate.
I work with Coldwell Banker in Sugar Land since I started in Real Estate. My broker has the time and the knowledge to help all the new Realtors as well you need to choose a broker firm that everyone is willing to help you.

Watch out for the fees. At some brokerages agents make more on recruiting new agents with on going fees out of your commissions, ask. Big franchise offices business modle only works with larger fees and the broker is not available for your individual questions. Walzel Properties, company has a great personality with very small fees and great training. Broker you can call and talk to. All agents are helping answer question daily.

I started with a big name broker for my first year, but switched to a smaller brokerage (Walzel Properties, LLC) and have been with them for over 5 years. I lay far less in dues and do not split commission with my broker. I still find the training to be equal to or better than what I received with my last broker. I think the key your first year is to find a broker who offers lots of training available to you both in person and online, and is also easily reachable. Also ask if they have a forum through which all agents can communicate with one another in order to get feedback, offer answers or solutions to tough problems, and post open houses and leads. Best of luck!

What part of town do you live in? May not seem like a big deal but may be easier if you plan to spend time in the office. We have a small firm; our Broker has held his license since 1968. I've been his office manager/Realtor/Broker Associate for 22 years. We have a family-type atmosphere where we are not compete with our agents' clients, but we pitch in and help out during vacations/showings/etc. Our agents range from 50 years experience to having a license just a few weeks. We are franchised with ERA and have local and national training both in house and corporate sent trainers. Even with all the training, you really learn real estate by doing real estate. Good luck in your choice. If you want to reach out to Joseph Benes, our Broker, he'd be happy to talk with you. 281.798.6017. We're located in Sugar Land.

I would highly recommend Walzel Properties, LLC. The fees are minimal, training is great, and the support is unparalleled. I came from a larger "big name" brokerage that claimed they offer the same, but quickly found out they were fee driven. I have been with Walzel a few years now and am confident it's the best brokerage out there, hands down! www.walzelproperties.com

Keller Williams is the best option for new agents. My brokerage, KW PROFESSIONALS has made the whole difference in my development as an agent. I would highly recommend you give Yvonne Leal (execasst@kwp77.com) a holler so you can attend one of our new agent introductory interviews.

Having been an owner of a franchise,a trainer and Rookie of the year as an agent, I well experienced with training. Small independent brokers may tout training but in actuality it’s not what I term functional training. The big names give many courses. One of the most detailed is Keller Williams except you can learn so many tech skills, marketing tools, you find yourself always learning but not necessarily doing business. Tech skills are necessary to set up your beginning such as web pages, Facebook pages, etc. in my opinion all brand names give you useful skills but I believe the optimal way to learn is one of several ways. Take HAR’s Quick start Course. Develop a website that’s interesting to buyers and sellers. Design it your self by exploring web sites of agents all over the country. Take notes of ideas you like, looks you like. Maybe photos of homes appeals to you or pets or causes such as adopt a pet or lifestyle such as boating, biking, etc. Then choose the colors. These colors need to be your theme in everything. Most important is your Slogo. It will be the theme of all advertising and never change, so pick carefully. Go to Register.com and buy your domain name based on your slogo. You may have to make some adjustments. Then find a good host for your web site. The company website is never a good place, its all about branding the company and all the competition is on there with you. Choose a second domain name for that one. Do not use that URL on your card or advertising. Speaking of cards, select one with the most lines for information. Use the company card as a throw down when showing homes or attending open houses, etc. Go to Vista Print and design a classy card using your colors. Design a buyer book to give everyone show a home. Get good info for this from the tools at NAR, TAR websites. You could also work with a mentor( caution few really share). Be an assistant. Be in the office regularly to listen and learn. You find no prospects at home. Good luck

Hi Syed, wow, you got a lot of great advise from some amazing Realtors and Brokers. I have been a Realtor for 28 years in Houston and have only been with 2 Brokers, one for 10 years and another for 18 years. I love this industry. Probably the biggest thing we face as Realtors is an exit plan or retirement plan when we’re ready to take that step.
As in any sales positions “we are only as good as our
last sale”. That being said, training is vital, but so is multiple income streams, especially when life gets in the way.
I have personally went through taking care of my terminally ill mother and I battled Cancer a year after she passed away. When those kind of things happen, your income stops.
So I now have a passion for showing Realtors how to Retire in 3 to 5 years with a lifetime residual income. Our brokerage CAN TRAIN YOU, with a personal mentor. We will also show you how to build your business in 49 states, while working with buyers and sellers in your local area. We show you how to have ownership with our Brokerage and build a residual income for life. I would love to meet with you and go into more detail, I think you will be glad you spent the time to take a look at what we can offer you. You can reach me at 281-236-9283. I wish you much success, and rather you join us or not, feel free to reach out to me anytime.

Regards
Debbie Gregory

Hi Syed,
Have you heard of an EBA: Exclusive Buyer Agent? An EBA works only with buyers (or tenants). It allows you to focus on helping people find a home. In an EBA office, we take no listings. If this is something that might be of interest to you, please let me know and I can give you my broker's contact information.

Good question. When you begin to meet with managers and brokers at various offices do ask if they have an education and training program for newly licensed agents and if the brokerage offers mentoring to newly licensed agents by pairing them up with a more experienced agent. You are right on target with wanting to associate with an office that values education and professionalism! Stick to your high standards despite temptations to lower them, and you will be very successful!

Hi Syed,

First, congratulations on working to get your real estate licence!

Second, being a real estate agent is like having your own business. So no matter where you join you still have to have a plan/strategy of how you want to run your business. Yes, there are guidelines we all have to follow as licensed agents but how far you want to go in this field is based on your drive and instinct.
So I would suggest to choose a broker that will match your strategy your drive. Some like to get trained and learn mostly through training. Some like to jump start and follow their own lead. Some are natural entrepreneurs. Some are conservative, some are risk takers. What kind are you?

Also, how much are you willing and able to spend on a monthly basis before you can start making money? What is your budget? How much are your savings? Do you have a secondary income that can keep you afloat while you get your feet wet in real estate? Getting into debt is not a good idea. Spend wisely.

I would suggest meet as many brokerages as possible and see what fits your personality, drive (to learn and do better each day) and affordability.

Personally, I didn't want to spend more than what I could afford. So I joined a brokerage that is within my budget, gives me ample training, is hands on with technology and supports and encourages my drive to do better!

Wish you all the best!!
