How do you know it’s time to make a move and change over to a new brokerage? Ask yourself what are you getting out of your current brokerage and are you growing and being challenged to do your very best.
Here are a few things to consider when making a decision:
Brand power and name recognition
A brokerage’s reputation and recognition can be a key to your success. Having an advantage to being represented by a #1 industry brand over a local, independent brokerage gives you the competitive edge over the other. RE/MAX is the no. 1 name in real estate thanks in part to extensive advertising across print, online, television, sports sponsorships, radio and outdoor promotions around the World. However, in the end, it is within your own power to create your brand within the brand and do the work required for your success.
Quality of agents
Choose a brokerage where good agents become great, and great ones become even better. If you are driven to increase your business and build your clientele, then surround yourself with agents who are like-minded and willing to help you grow.
Training and agent development
Do you consider your education an important factor in growing your business? A great way to achieve your goals every year is to continue your agent development, learning new sales skills, keep up to date with industry leading technology, know the latest marketing trends and build motivation. Seek out a brokerage that will provide all of this and supports a learning environment.
RE/MAX offers RE/MAX University (RU) which is a 24/7 instructional platform available to all RE/MAX agents. Just another way for you to receive the support and guidance you need to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Networking and convention opportunities
An important piece to your business plan is to reach out to other agents within your network. There are many opportunities of creating relationships with other agents in different areas to increase your client database. Referrals with clients and agents will continue to build if you work consistently to reach out to and create those contacts.
Ways to connect are through brokerage conventions and networking seminars, try seeking out a brokerage that has a presence across the globe.
Put yourself into an energized, collaborative culture and there’s no limit on what you can achieve. The result? The ability to pursue the lifestyle you want.
