Dear newly real estate licensee,
Congratulations on passing your real estate salesperson’s exam!
Now that you passed your real estate salesperson’s exam, the next step will be deciding which brokerage is best for you. Your real estate career can be an exciting and rewarding journey. It’s all up to you. In real estate, your success is all up to your decisions, your creativity, your ability, your effort, and your willingness to learn and implement what you learned. You can be the rookie of the year and earn more than $200,000 or do no real estate transactions at all. Choosing your first real estate brokerage has the potential to affect the direction of your real estate career. It matters. It’s important.
Of course, we are biased and would like you to join Keller Williams Realty. So here is a unbiased-3rd party article you should read. “5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Real Estate Broker” on zillow.com. In this article, a blogger examines five of the most important factors to choosing a brokerage other than the commission split.
If you read this article, you will realize that those five things ultimately can be summed up to one thing. The one thing which matters to you the most when choosing your first real estate brokerage; “Which real estate brokerage will take my real estate career to the highest level possible?”
Gary Keller, co-founder and chairman of Keller Williams Realty wrote “Environment is one of the most underrated, catch-you-by-surprise issues of success.” in a national bestseller book “The Millionaire Real Estate Agent“.
“We believe strongly that your environment is a critical issue to your success and that it must clearly support your goals.” He continues “In our experience, high achievers tend to associate with energizers and synergizers – people who support their goals and work well with them to achieve those goals.”
Although it is true that you are technically working for yourself as a real estate agent, your environment – real estate brokerage – can make you or break you. Look around you. For every successful real estate agent you might know, there are many people working behind the scenes who support his or her success. They are the broker, coach, mentor, assistant, team members, colleagues, office staff, vendors, family and friends.
There have been many successful agents before you. You can trace their path to success. In fact, our leaders at Keller Williams put together the proven system and tools that you can implement every day, the same tools that an agent used to earn $272,000 as a rookie.
We congratulate you on starting your path to real estate career. We hope the journey you are embarking on is exciting and rewarding. And we invite you to explore your unlimited possibilities and opportunities with Keller Williams Realty. Come see what kind of environment and support we offer. Best wishes on your journey!
