NEED HELP!!!!! I am a new real estate agent seeking a great company/broker that I can join

Answer

I completely disagree with Whit Suber. Training is a vital key to a real estate agent's success. I personally work with Keller Williams and the amount of info they provide you is amazing. They also provide scripts to know what to say to your clients. My brokerage offers classes every single day. And the Realtor board...you can't be an agent without joining one. Also, MLS data is vital to be able to not only have buyers something to search for and giving you leads to follow up on, but also so you can give your sellers the correct info needed about the market. Knowing your market should be high on your list of priorities. MLS in South Florida was also free. Board dues are expensive, however, some boards will allow you to make the payments in several installments. Don't waste your money on advertising. That's overrated. Face-to-face and voice contact and handwritten letters/notes will bring you a lot further in your career. No offense, but if you hang around people like Whit, then he is correct and you will not be successful in your career. You MUST hang around others with positive attitudes and those who are successful. Don't be afraid to make yourself known to anyone and everyone you meet, especially on a day to day basis. Even if you do not decide to join Keller Williams, you can search for some of their training programs. Look for Ignite and the daily 10/4. Your career will go to new heights. Just ask yourself, "What is my maximum potential?" You will never know if you don't put forth the effort. The world is at your hands. It's up to you to decide what to do with it. And one more thing...buy two books...."The One Thing" and "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent" by Gary Keller.
