Hello all, this is a bit of an odd question.
I am a licensed Real Estate Salesperson at a brokerage, and I am tired of all the meetings, trainings, and events. I want a brokerage company that will literally leave me alone to my own devices.
I don't want training, I don't want a weekly meeting, I want to be left alone to do my business. These meetings are driving me crazy, sure they are great, and educational, however, after a while they start to just get in the way.
The whole point of me becoming an agent was to not work for other people.
This might sound odd, but I am looking for a no support brokerage. . .
Does anyone have any recommendations for me in the NYC area?
Three years of law school, pass the Bar exam and get admitted, and then you can get your brokerage license without the hassle.
What happens if you just stop attending some of them?
"Sorry, I'm meeting with clients during that time. Catch it next time." "Sorry, I'm on the road." "Sorry, I'm marketing a listing." Indefinitely.
A friend of mine is associated with a low-service brokerage here in Canada. He's basically independent and just uses their name and access to MLS. I'm surprised that's not more common.
Put in the time then and when you are eligible upgrade to being a broker.
Until then, Your broker has a legal requirement to make sure you are trained, and attend a certain amount of meetings per year.
@Joshua Shamah Why not find some fee only or cloud based brokerage where you really can just build your own business but use the resources when/if you want to?
I’m in NYC & recently joined a cloud based realty. They have live online trainings or recorded trainings if you want to attend when you have the time. It gives people like me, who want to grow their business at their own pace, the flexibility we seek. All from the comfort of your home.
Reach out to myself or my colleague @Charlie Cameron if you have any questions!
I am a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in NYC. I am with eXp Realty and I have been doing my own thing since I onboarded with them. They are cloud-based and they have been hands-off entirely. There are online classes if you want to attend, but by no means required.
