If your broker is not training, guiding and developing you, that is not a good broker.

Even though we own our own businesses, I think it's important to have a relationship based on trust. I want a broker that provides a culture of integrity and challenges me and the agents in the firm to do and be our best.

Very. All payments to me must come through my broker. He is also responsible for my professional actions. I have to do him proud or I could be invited to seek another broker with which to work. He offers training and a place to call my office.

It's important for new agents to have a broker that is a true mentor/coach, will be available for questions you may have (which there will be thousands), show you the ropes and keep you out of trouble.

Problems in real estate originate with the broker. Whether its incompetent agents (training), deceptive practices (teams) or defiance of the rules (off-mls sales within the brokerage) it all starts at the head.

Whether you succeed or not is unrelated to the broker. Most brokers accept NO RESPONSIBILITY regarding the agents they oversee. Many do not even write the checks to compensate the agent.(that last remaining duty brokers had) Those that do, may charge the agent for that inconvenience. Training is delegated to an agent who has more time than business.

You and you alone determine what your future holds and you must be ruthless regarding the resources the broker makes available.

This is a business. Treat it like one.

Your next question will be "What should I look for in a broker?"

This is a business, not a courtship. Let the FACTS guide your actions.
