Team vs Going Solo ? Where to find good team ?

2 Replies

Hello

I'm a new agent that has been having trouble getting his business started. Now part of that is due to me prospecting incorrectly and waiting for business to come to me. Another part is that I'm a part time agent that works 15-20 hours a week.  Over the past 2-3 weeks I learned that I need to actually be active in my prospecting methods ( door knock , cold call , etc). It was also brought to my attention that I need to look into joining a team.I don't want to join a team where the leader is just using me to grow his business but not mine. From what I'm told must teams have leaders that are only in it to use you.

My question is where can I find a good team to join in the Columbus Ohio area ?. Most teams I find through indeed , etc are either supportive teams (AKA a solo brokerage ) or actual revenue sharing teams that want experienced agents. 

Example 

 * 2 years experience 

 * X amount of sales 

Does anyone know where I can find a good team to work with where the leader wants to help a new agent out ?

Or should I just hustle hard and go through the pains using the correct methods to grow an business solo ? 

Thanks 

Teams can be a great way to learn the business.  If you are not good at lead generation and prospecting, then even more so a team is likely a way to go. 

You mention you work 15 to 20 hours a week....thats what I spend on lead generation alone.  Lead generation for a solo agent needs to be their #1 activity.

 Yah I just learned that a couple weeks ago. I went from doing no lead gen to doing maybe 2-3 hours a day. what methods of lead generation do you use If you don't mind me asking ?. I'm slowly moving towards my whole day just being lead gen. I'm currently still lost but still learning just looking for someone that will help me progress
