5 REASONS TO CONSIDER A NEW BROKERAGE

Posted on 06/18/2021 by Jamie Nevers

Real estate has changed. Some of the older business models are not providing the services agents need to thrive, keep themselves relevant, and truly set themselves apart. If you find that you identify with any of the 5 considerations below, it may be time to get comfortable with hearing what other brokerages have to offer: 

1. YOU ARE STAGNANT BUT BELIEVE MOVING WILL BE A PAIN

This one is the one that holds most of us back. New cards, new signs, new, new, new…the reality is there is so much more out there for us if we are willing to go through that pain to be in a better place. Do you believe something better exists? Are you excited to get up and help your clients? Being stagnant at a brokerage is playing more roles in our lives than we are aware of, and, sometimes a fresh start can elevate us to reach our goals. With systems, checklists, and support, a move can be easier than you think.

2. YOU HAVE ONLY BEEN WITH ONE BROKERAGE AND ARE NOT EVEN SURE WHAT ELSE IS OUT THERE

There are so many choices for brokerages! Do you want to be an avatar? Do you look good in red? Do you want a flat fee brokerage who leaves you alone? What else is there? Believe it or not, there ARE brokerages that believe in the relationship between you and your client, between you and other agents, and what is possible when collaboration exists between the brokerage and the agents who have partnered with it.

3. OVER THE PAST YEAR, YOU’VE REALIZED THAT YOU NEED SOMETHING DIFFERENT, MAYBE SOMETHING MORE? MORE SUPPORT PERHAPS?

After 2020 we have all been digging a little deeper, asking ourselves questions, creating more depth in our relationships, in our businesses, in our lives in general. What do you want more of in your life? Do you need to leverage yourself to do more with the same amount of time? Do you want to work less and make more? We are clear that leverage is the only way to level up and change your life. 

4. YOU WANT TO BE AROUND PEOPLE WHO ARE TOP PRODUCERS. AFTER ALL, WE ARE WHO WE HANG AROUND

This may be one of the most impactful things we do every day without thinking about it. Are you hanging around people who are raising you up, who are bringing you down, or who dream as much as you do? We live in such a unique environment, and the people we surround ourselves with can either be helping us or hurting us. Our goal is to have the top producing agents in the country as far as transactions per agent. Agents who know the current pulse of the market, understand how to advise their clients on the current strategies, and who live the lives they dream.

5. YOU HAVE ASKED YOURSELF IF YOUR BROKERAGE IS INVESTING IN YOU AS MUCH AS YOU INVEST IN THEM

I have always paid attention to this one. Is my brokerage investing in me? You get what you pay for and our goal is to invest in our agent partners to make sure they are relevant, educated, and given opportunities to grow and see what is next for our industry. We are committed to our partners and it shows in the services we provide.

There are always things that make us believe the grass isn’t greener on the other side, but we still need to know what is possible. I was taught to ask questions, look for opportunities, and to make smart business decisions. What are you looking for next in your life, your business, for your future?
