Being a real estate professional is a unique profession because you have the power to choose where to hang your license and ultimately who will provide the right support to help your business continue to grow. Choosing the right broker is so essential to your business and making sure that they are supporting your growth.
For new professionals, this is a critical choice in beginning what could be a prosperous, successful, and exciting career. For current professionals, it’s about doing some research and discovering which broker is the right fit for you and what you need to continue to move your business forward.
How to choose a real estate broker
First, you’re going to want to take a look at your career. What has been working? What areas need improvement? What do you need to take your career to the next level?
So many different brokers claim to provide the greatest education, mentorship, tools, technology, commission, and plenty of other resources. However, doing real research is key to finding out what is accurate and what might be a bit of an exaggeration.
Realty ONE Group, although is a brand that does offer all of this support to its professionals. The unique business model offers over 14,000+ agents at any stage in their career support that the industry has never seen before. The latest technology, resources, mentorship, training, and education from an in-house learning management system. And then, there’s the 100% commission model… but we’ll save that for another blog post.
What should new agents be looking for in a real estate company?
If you’re just beginning your career in real estate, first of all, congratulations! Exciting times lie ahead but picking the right company will dictate so much for your future. New agents are going to want to choose a company that offers not only education & training but mentorship. Learning from those that have been where you are is an underrated tool that can really help your business flourish. Educated and learning-based professionals are the ones that own their market and find continued success. So, finding a broker that will offer education and the right education is key. For example, Realty ONE Group’s ONE University is an internal learning management system with over 2,000+ online courses for agents at any stage in their career. The whole platform is available digitally and you can learn at your own speed on your own time.
Let’s talk training. Which company has the best?
Probably going to sound like a broken record here, but Realty ONE Group has the best training especially in the midst of this year. When the world suddenly stopped earlier this year, Realty ONE Group quickly shifted gears and moved to a complete virtual experience for its network. Daily town hall meetings quickly began with training courses, news, updates, guest speakers, partnerships, and more to keep everyone connected and in the loop. Brand new virtual training initiatives were available to agents and ONE University’s courses and education continued to grow.
There are so many different real estate companies out there to choose from. The important thing is to keep you and your business moving forward, no matter the circumstances. Choose the right broker that will support your growth.
