Choosing a Real Estate Brokerage to Work for
Successful Real Estate Agents look for four things when choosing a Broker to hang your license with:
- a broker they can learn from
- a broker they can have fun with
- a broker they can make money with
- a broker they can grow with
Every Boston area real estate broker will give you their opinion about the condition of the real estate market if you let them. You can’t allow them to just pour their junk into you; you need to take in thoughts and ideas from a knowledgeable broker you want to be like, a broker that inspires you! When you spend time with a broker you can learn from, don’t dominate the conversation...listen to them! Evan Russell delivers his training in many different ways, like his weekly podcast that can found in iTunes or live at www.evanlive.com. You can sign up for Evan Weekly Podcast at www.evanrussell.com
Secondly, you need to have an office environment you can have fun in! When you meet with your broker the conversation should be about deals AND life. During your real estate career you’re going to have brokers that are all business and brokers who enjoy life while they sell real estate; one such broker is Evan Russell. Evan knows how to have fun and relax, which is effective in the in the office; it also makes you more enjoyable to be around.
Third, money, money, money. Has a nice ring to it right? Your income is said to be the average of the 5 people you spend the most time around. How’s your average? You need to hang with a broker who can teach you to be a top earner in the real estate industry. Your real estate career should lead you to spend time with people you can and want to make money with.
Fourth, if you don't grow in your real estate career, you’re moving in the wrong direction. As a real estate agent you need to connect with a broker who can help you grow. Growth in real estate can mean more deals this year than last, more income this year or bigger deals this year over last. Your broker can help you achieve bigger, better and more advantageous goals in your real estate career if you let him!
Bottom line is you need to pay attention to who you hang your license with. Not all brokers are created equally and you should find a broker that you can learn from and have fun while making money growing your real estate career!
