If your agency does not have anyone able or willing to help new agents out then you might want to get someone or volunteer yourself.  When I first started I would have saved myself a ton of money and worry if someone would have done that for me.  I'm not saying to take someone and hold their hand for 8 hours a day for weeks on end.  Just an hour or two every day for the first two weeks or so.  It just may keep an agent happy to be with your company.  It's a great day to buy or sell a home.

Spot on James. I think their should be a short time when every agent first starts that they are mentored by a seasoned agent. It would make a better work environment for all of us.

James....all new agents need to be trained and everyone needs a mentor....it doesn't matter how many years of experience you have...you need to have a person to talk to about business.

James - When you are new in the business, you need a mentor unless you have an excellent training program.  I have heard a big company who just give the new agents their desk and get them to start calling.  That's a recipe for disaster.

When I started and still today we have training that is on a weekly basis but not like it really needs to be.  It seems that everyone is off in their on little world.  what a shame

Agreed James. When I started out I paid a mentor, and took as many other classes as I could in order to get designations along with the knowledge that comes with them.  It pays off.

James,  Again, a great observation.  I know that when I was new in the business....we wrote contracts on stone tablets if i remember right,   I had lots of help from people that were where I wanted to be.   I am always happy to help a new agent.  The agent must however come to me and ask...I will not push myself on them.
