It happens all the time, and especially when the market slows a bit, or times get tough, some agents jump ship. Now, this does'nt go for all agents, but for some, they seem to believe that the grass is greener on the other side. In rare instances, this hold true, but in most cases, once the agent goes over to another company, they find out that its not grass at all, but its brightly colored astro-turf!! When I decided to get into this business, I learned early on that it is not WHERE you work, but its HOW you work. For example, for an agent to leave a well known, estatblished company, which has been in business for over 60 years, only to go to work for a company that has been in the business 1 year, what can that company do for them to increase their income? My feelings are that when times are tough, I would rather have a well branded name standing behind me to help.
Let me know what you think about this.
