Are you a new agent? Or, an experienced agent who is just slightly disenchanted with your current broker and looking for a change?
Why did you choose the Broker you are with now? So many agents, myself included in that, choose the Broker we took our prelicensing class with. I chose them because I didn't really do my homework and figured they were all pretty much the same and offered the same opportunities and the same training in the business. When I got my license in Maryland I affiliated with Champion Realty. Now, I was very lucky and got into a great office with fantastic opportunities for education and mentoring. My mentors were fabulous and the education I received as a new agent in Maryland was great. It really gave me an opportunity to look around and get an idea of what I wanted to do in real estate and how to grow my business.
I left Champion for a better opportunity at Century 21 H. T. Brown. Century 21 gave me the opportunity to take my business to the next level and really grow my business. Having had a chance to look around and talk to other agents and find out what other companies were doing, I found out that they were not all equal. Not all companies provided mentoring, not all companies offered continuing education or career development opportunities. All these things are so important when you become an agent. If you don't specialize you become a commodity like every other agent in the industry. Does your broker help you determine what it is you are really good at and how to develop that into a niche market? Century 21 H. T. Brown really helped me do that and helped me become very successful at it.
Now, I have an opportunity to be the kind of Office Manager/Broker that will help other agents grow their businesses and develop their careers and become successful. I learned from the best and I hope to be able to take the best from where I've been and pass that along to the agents that choose to come to work with me at Advance Realty Anne Arundel.
So, are you looking to make a change? If you are give me a call or send me an email and I'd be happy to talk to you about what Advance Realty can do for you to grow your business and help you become as successful as you want to be.
