15 Things to Consider When Looking For a Broker to Work For:

1. Commission split- It's important to remember that 100%, 95%, 60% of nothing is $0. When you are just starting out it is more important to create a steady stream of income and clients.  A newer agent should make a decision if they are better off joining a team, getting a mentor, or going at it alone. It can be challenging to learn the business without some clients and a strong (trainer)support system.

2. Internet presence- Does the brokerage have a strong internet presence? Google it. Will it create a steady stream of leads for you? Will you have the ability to build your own name within the Brand?

3. Fees- One word on this one- CAP- What is the dollar amount that (once you pay it off)...you receive 100% of your commissions.
4. Brokerage size- How much personal attention will you need to grow your business?
5. Facilities- Does the office have what you need to be successful?
6. Location- Is the office convenient for you to go to? Will the address location help you or does it potentially hurt you?
7. Training- Do you need one-on-one personal training, webinars, etc...How do you learn best?
8. Mentor program- Real-life, hands-on training is a great way to dive right into the deep end of the pool.
9. Management support- 
How much support will you need? Who will help you build your business plan and hold you accountable so that you meet your goals? Is the management staff up-to-speed or are they preaching a 1990 approach for your business?
10. Administrative support- Is there enough staff? Are they trained in the areas that you need help?
11. Culture- Is it the right fit for you? Is there a positive energy? What kind of events do they hold? What charities do they support? Do you have common interests with the broker, staff, and agents?
12. Specialties- What can you specialize in and is there proper training and support in this specific area? (i.e. Commercial, Luxury, Horse-Farms, Waterfront Properties, etc...)
13. Broker's reputation- Here's where I would rely on input from fellow agents. Unfortunately, many brokers have a great sales pitch, but don't make good on their promises.  Ask other agents.. what it is like to work there? Are you happy with your decision to work at a particular brokerage?
14. Referrals and leads- How do you lead generate at this particular brokerage, and what if anything will is cost?
15. Joining a team- Maybe you prefer to learn the different sides of the business one step at a time.  For example...starting as a buyer's agent, and ISA, or a licensed assistant.

Working as a real estate professional can be a very fulfilling, rewarding, as well as a lucrative career.  It's important to get off to a good start and to put yourself in the best possible position to succeed.
