I am on my way to becoming a new agent.

Another goal is to be finished with school by the end of Oct. And take the state exam by mid November.
So if you are from the East Texas Area please remember my name during the next year for you Real Estate needs.
Does anyone have any advice on questions to ask the brokers when I begin the interviewing portion of this journey? Especially since I really would love to work for someone that is heavy in investing?
Every brokerage is different. I just interview with a broker. Each brokerage have their own fees and training. Some fees can be very high. Some of them have mandatory meeting and stuff. Just have to see which brokerage is best suited for your situation.
