Choosing a broker is one of the most critical early decisions every real estate professional has to make. And choosing the right broker isn’t as easy as it sounds. That’s probably why 54% of active real estate agents are considering making the move to a new brokerage company. But how can you be sure you’re making the right choice?
Enter Realty Connection, a valuable online tool that puts the power in the agent’s hands. Realty Connection allows you to find and compare brokerage companies based on critical factors, including commission splits, monthly fees, franchise fees, office space, lead programs, technology packages, branding, and many more important characteristics.
