tami bonnell: How do you build a real estate company? Do what the others don't... - 04/23/13 06:03 AM
Niche Report Editor’s Note: The Real Estate business is tough. Sadly, there are no loyalties. Each agent is largely out for themselves, while the broker and/or the franchise corporation reap the rewards. This dynamic between the real estate company and the agent has largely persisted over the last 15 years. If you are an owner of a real estate franchise or business, how do you build a community within your company amidst a commune of cannibals? In a market that boasts over 1.2 million real estate companies (yes companies), it can be difficult to build loyalty, stand out and genuinely build (0 comments)

This month, The Niche Report for real estate agents and brokers features this article by Tami Bonnell, President of the US Organization of EXIT Realty Corp. International.
