Joining a Las Vegas real estate company, whether you are considering a move, or joining for the first time, is an important decision and one that you should make carefully and deliberately. So what factors should influence your decision-making process?
To be perfectly honest, my company didn't know the answer to that question, so we conducted a survey. We queried half a million real estate professionals and discovered that the vast majority of agents choose a brokerage for only five reasons, and we've made it our mission to excel in all five areas.
Find You Customers
Join the right company and you'll immediately solve this number one problem facing agents today: not enough customers. Some companies give their agents leads, while others don't. Our company doesn't. You've probably heard the adage, Buy a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for life. So instead of giving our agents leads, we teach our agents how to find their own customers.
Today, most agents spend a fortune on various tools and software. You should look for a company that will provide you the tools you need to do your job. When I say tools, I'm not talking about a fax machine and copier. I'm not talking about a computer that the agents can come in and use. What I'm talking about is tools like a website, lead capture technology, and a full-featured client manager application.
Train You to Succeed
Many companies talk about training, but few actually provide it. Look for a company that will help you get better at being an agent. Our industry is constantly changing and successful agents are always learning. Having the best tools and having an endless supply of new inbound customers won't help you at all if you don't have the basic skills needed to turn those opportunities into closed transactions.
Company Shouldn't Waste Your Time
At the end of the day, the only thing you have to sell is your time. That's precisely why our company doesn't waste our agents' time with sales meetings, caravans, floor duty, or other non-productive company meetings. Find a company that won't waste your time. Find a company that empowers the agents to be productive while maintaining the support, community, and structure that many agents crave.
When you choose a company to work with, make certain that they solve your customer problem. Make sure they provide you with the basic tools you need to be successful in today's virtual real estate climate. Make sure they provide training to keep you at the top of your game and make sure you invest your time to take that training. Finally, make absolutely certain that they don't waste your valuable time and that they pay you well.
