Can an Agent Work For More Than One Brokerage?

Here in Los Angeles, you can't and I don't see how you can.  A portion of your commission needs to be split with the broker.  How would you decide which broker gets the money?

You can't work for the same brokerage in the same state although some brokerages have a separate brokerage for their commercial transactions. Outside of the state, you can, but if your brokerage has a local office, they would be bothered if you did not join locally there.

I've seen agents try to do this but it never ends well. As Rick said, you need to split with a broker, so working with multiple brokerages would limit the split

The residential vs commercial brokerage is the big exception, as others have noted. For example, KW has both residential and commercial.
