Why do Agent's change offices so many times?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Real Living Evergreene Properties

In this business I am aware it is common for agents to go from one office to the next often.  Why do you think that is?

Our company is trying to recruit 10 Loudoun County, VA agents if anyone knows an agent ready to switch to Real Living.  Thanks!

I think many agents believe that they will do better at another company, which isn't true!  I also think that some agents get bored and feel that a change would do them good.  I have been at the same company for many years and have no plans to leave, unless I leave real estate.

There are so many reasons why agents switch offices so often. I've met some that lack stability in their personal life and that often reflects in their satisfaction (or lack of) in real estate. Not always the case but I've seen it with some agents.

I was at one office 9 years and just felt it was time to move on.....1 year at that new office and now I work for myself....For me it was always being recruited by another office that just starts to make you think they will appreciate you more....just my thoughts...

I think its because they always think the grass is greener elsewhere, more leads, better this better that..The fact is if they would just realize they need to actually do something to generate business for them-self instead of expecting stuff to fall in their lap after they get a license / move to a new office, they might be happier, more productive Realtors! or realize it time for a new career path...
