Find the Right Brokerage
Try to be as systematic as possible when looking for the right office for you. First, create a list of the offices in your area. Next, research each brokerage by talking to friends and spending time on their websites. From there, whittle down your list by making eliminations based on reputation of the company, managing broker, specific agents in the office and the office in general. As the last step, interview at least three managing brokers. This is the person who will infuse your experience with education, counsel and mentoring throughout your career. It is extremely important to find the right environment that will help drive your success. Keep in mind that most brokerages consider agents joining them a numbers game where they know a certain percentage will not make it. This is why in the industry 70% of agents wash out in their first 24 months and another 10% drop out between year 2 and 5. At Baird & Warner Glenbrook, we focus on giving you all the support, resources, training, systems and coaching necessary to give you the best possible chance of being successful for the long term.
