In my jurisdiction, one cannot become a broker without at least 3 years of full-time experience as an agent.  Brokers have a lot more management to take care of, such as record keeping and escrow accounts.

It's the law in AZ.  Consider this - a brand new agent should NOT be allowed to go out and do business on his/her own without broker supervision.  That would be scary.....just saying.

State licensing requirements specify that a new affiliate must work under the supervision of a broker. When you get enough experience and knowledge you can apply to be the broker and accept all the responsibility that goes along with it.

So they can be paid ... commissions are only paid to the brokerage who then pays the agent.  In CA an agent needs experience with a broker/age before they can apply for a broker license.

They have no choice.

It's a closed shop and you gotta join the union.
If you look deeper regarding the role of the broker and/or franchise you will begin to see the picture more clearly.
