Hopefully, new licensees understand that rather than you being hired by a broker, you are in the driver's seat when it comes to deciding which Broker you are going to hire.
You need to compare your business model and goals with the structure and support of the Brokers under consideration. We recently made the move after 2 very successful years from RE/MAX to Keller Williams. Why fix something that's not broken you ask? When Suzanne and I joined RE/MAX, we planned that it would be just the two of us, plus a virtual listing coordinator and virtual transaction manager. For that configuration, RE/MAX was the best option.
A few months later, we hired our first Buyer Associate to work on the 162 buyer leads that I hadn't been able to get to. Fast forward to the middle of 2005 and the team had swelled to 14. My time was entirely consumed by "ad hoc" training the team members. The tail was wagging the dog all over the place. In spite of all that, it was a great year! In 2006 I "culled the herd", helping those that needed to find a different career path to do so, imposed a hiring freeze, and distilled the team down to the five core members who made the move to Keller Williams. New team associates attend Camp 4:4:3 - free - and taught by instructors with accountability activities built in.
The financial structure for teams is so attractive and well known that when I gave notice to RE/MAX they asked where we were going. I told them it was to a "team supportive environment" and they instantly responded - "It must be Keller Williams!" Word gets around.
