Hi BP! I am a new agent in the PHX area, and I am currently interviewing a couple of different brokerages. I wanted to see if anybody had any recommendations, and absolutely loved where they are at. What is most important to me is having a good mentor, working for an innovative brokerage that utilized social media, as well as revenue sharing, and obviously a good pay structure ;) I also love being part of a team, and learning from others, and would love to learn more about marketing. Looking forward to hearing from one of my favorite communities :)
I think that KW is a great option for new agents because they have one of the best training programs in the business.
I would definitely go there first and see what they can offer you.
Their splits for new agents are competitive as well.
Congrats on passing the RE tests and getting your license. I was in your shoes about a year ago and it took a while for me to find the right brokerage and I ended up with West USA Realty. PM me if you want to discuss it further and I'll share my experiences with you.
I'm not from your area so I won't talk about specific brokerages but I just thought I'd touch on working for a team. When I first started as an agent, I was doing it by myself. Although I was able to get leads and closed some transactions it was definitely difficult (especially since my market lacks inventory.) I decided to join a top producing team at another firm in my area and I would say it was the best thing I could have done. I have a mentor who's willing to help train me and who I can call any time I have a question. He has financial incentive to train me because the more I produce, the more money he gets from commission splits. If you're looking to do real estate sales full time, I would advise to definitely consider joining a team.
