We're contacted at least 2-3 times a month and have never even entertained the idea of switching brokerages. Then we got an offer from an energetic broker with an office full of hard working agents who  go the extra mile to service clients.

Brokers of course.

When an agent calls it is clear they are involved in a MLM enterprise. Can you really trust what an agent says when you know they are building their residual income stream. Of course we already know you can never trust what a broker says.

  From time to time, by managing brokers.  Most of the "regulars" know me personally; they know that I am not shuttering my company, so they don't ask.  The most recent is a friend who bought a Big Company franchise.  My standard answer:  "I am honored, thanks, but no thanks".

It seems all the big boxes have recruiters and they are ruthless in pestering everyone, including me. One with less than 2 years in the business, cracked me up as a 32 year veteran of real estate. I get offers from the franchises themselves as they look to take over our city. The offers though have been laughable if they want me to give up everything for a pay out that lacks enough pay to make it wrth while.

The broker.  I have learned that when an agent recruits in some firms they get a cut of the commission, and it is a nice chunk of change when the person is a high producer, they can live on it.  And no, it is not the company you are thinking of. LOL A
