May Contest: Retaining Agents for the Long Haul!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with K1 Realty Group 3017422



     The majority topics I read on the rain is how to survive as a real estate agent in your 1st few years which is excellent. We hear about recruiting agents but what happens once you get the agents.  Therefore, I would like to see a contest for a plan on how to retain real estate agents for the long haul. This can be a contest to write a blog about a brokerage retaining agents and they can write a five to seven tips (or whatever number) on the topic and explain. I would like to see some outta the box thinking especially thoughts on retaining the millennials. The rain member who participates in the contest can be awarded 1500 points and minimum 300 words.  This will be a learning opportunity for brokers who are trying to grow their business without spending thousands of dollars in the beginning. There is no special time of the year for this contest because it’s always needed due to the increasing of new real estate brokerages in my area.  How does a small company rise to the top?  Share your secrets.

Good morning, Dr. Karen Jones Lewis, Broker (Karen)... the most important step is the recruiting of the agent.... if you're fortunate enough to hire an agent who understands the concept of working independently and has that fire in his/her belly to soar to the top, all you'll need to do as a Broker/Owner is to pay them fairly and give them space to grow.... this is a rare find, and if you do find it, invite that person to meet with you for discussion.... 

be upfront and don't invite to lunch, only to turn it into an interview!!! I'd be livid.... share the compliments, if the agent is worthy... and invite to meet for discussion.... 

make sure you have whatever that agent needs from you.... it's a two way street, but I see your role as one of support and providing the flexibility to restructure your business to include specific departments to assist with marketing as business increases....  I do all of my postcards and pre-listing brochures in-house .... we have the dept. for that including professional machines, quality supplies and staff to run that valuable part of our business...
