Thinking of starting a career in real estate or changing companies?
Where do you begin? I will share the pro's and con's of working in the industry to help you decide if this career is the right fit for you. If you feel it's the right path, you need to make an informed decision since the company you start your career with can determine the success you achieve in this critical 1st year of business. Even if you have been in this business for a while, it's never too late to begin a new path to success! Here are some questions you need to ask EVERY manager you interview, including me:
What kind of training will you receive (not only from a mentor and manager perspective, but what other avenues are there to continue to learn and grow at a minimal cost)?
What kinds of tools and technology does the company offer?
What are the total expenses associated with each company? (Ask one of the agents to share their expenses down to the detail, I will share mine!) This will enable you to really compare apples to apples. They should be sharing costs like advertising, self-promotion, dues, franchise fees, signs, monthly charges, admin fees, charges for supplies, desk space, mentoring charges, and training costs to name a few.
How will the manager work for you? How will he or she help you set income goals and create a plan to reach them
This is just a small sampling of the many questions you should ask. Call or email me and we will set up a time to meet to help you make the right decision!
