Independent or Franchise and Why?

By
Real Estate Agent with KDK Capital Region Realty Keene Duppre Kirkpatrick SALE.0000043727-ACT

Ok, I would love to know know . . . 

  1. Are you with an Independent Brokerage?
  2. Are you with a Franchise Brokerage?
  3. Why?

 

I am not interested in hearing debates of one franchise over anther.  I believe real estate is a local business driven by local consumers and want to hear why you are with either an independent or a franchise and how you feel it gives you leverage in building your real estate business.

I was with a franchise for 9 years. I am now an independent because it fits my personality.

Gary, share more of what you mean by it fits your personality.  What do you enjoy most about being with an Independent Brokerage?  Wishing you the best in 2014!

I'm with a franchise.  When I was doing my research to make my move, I narrowed it down to two, as I realized the other companies were companies I just never "saw" myself working at.  The main reasons are for the broker, the reputation & visibility.  I  think it's important to find the right combination and personality for you. What works for me may not work for you.

Good morning Jonathan,

I have been with two franchise. The first in the big cities was recognized but in smaller communities not so much. The second is globally recognizied but fees are high. I do more business with the second.

Make yourself a great day.
