Friendship, competence and character. My team is made up of people I train with, play golf with, travel with, dine with and can have a personal conversation with. It's the mortar in the bricks of our alliance. I had to like them, trust them and respect them.

This is something I have not done ... by choice. I've had several agents over the years ask to come work with me.  It is just not something I choose to do. I love flying solo.

I was always taught be great and they will come . . . and most won't be as great as you . . . so vet carefully . . . everyone sells the sizzle but where's the beef!

I selected highly movitated and very smart associates. 

You need to be able to provide enough prospects to keep them active and productive.

It depends on the blood of the new team/broker.
if they are specialist in quality of life, golf courses and boats work well.
If the blood is about making more money, recent closing are the list with a justaposed peek at a future.
If the new blood has no new thing, then they are simply robbers of aquariums and NOT fishers of men. For this situation capitalizing on the unhappiness of others is the portal of access. This is where "YOur broker not showing the love you need?" plays well.
And, as we all know, eventually someone needs to make the phone call.

Yes I have as the broker/owner.  Mainly they were folks I networked with and thought might be a good fit for our company.  The key is to vet very, very carefully because most will not be as motivated and comitted to business as you are.
