Well, after 5 years working for my broker, I think I am ready to make the next step- opening my own office. I have been a licensed broker over 4 years now, primarily sell foreclosures, and have developed a decent reputation. I am nowhere near a top producer in my market, and that's okay with me. I just want to support my family. I am thinking of converting a room to a home office, for at least the summer so I can be home with the kids and the garden, and save some money while I am strating up.
I would really appreciate any advice from those of you who have gome this route. Did you have problems getting people to recognize your new office name? Any special marketing tips? Any major pros or cons to thehome office thing? Any insurance snags with working from home? Would you do it differently if you had to start all over? has it been successful for you? Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks, in advance, for the help!
