Recruiting experienced real estate professionals is an important part of any real estate office’s business plan. What are experienced agents looking for…commission split? Agents are really looking for leadership and value. The only time that commission split and fees don’t work for an agent is when they are getting nothing in return from their broker. A strong training program certainly provides value.
How can you get in front of experienced agents and give them an opportunity to learn about your training, leadership and coaching skills? These are the major reasons an agent will join your company. What about hosting a training event for agents in your marketplace? Have your broker, members of your team or even an industry expert conduct a training session at your office, a local restaurant or a local hotel.
The residents of Minneapolis, Minnesota love the outdoors
so it was no surprise that the city was named by the American Fitness Index as the “Fittest City in America.” Lakes galore, the most bike-friendly city in the nation, a park every six blocks and four professional sports teams guarantee an active lifestyle. The downtown Metrodome, home to the Minnesota Vikings, is the only stadium in the country to have hosted a Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the Super Bowl, the World Series and the NCAA Basketball Men’s Final Four. Runners, walkers, inline-skaters, coed volleyball teams and touch football teams all have access to “The Dome.” Events from sports to concerts, community activities, religious activities, and trade shows are held more than three hundred days per year, making the facility one of the most versatile stadiums in the world.
Welcome to Nextage Nation! We’re excited to launch this blog as a place to share our company culture, celebrate our success stories and share best practices. With years of experience under our belt, it’s clear to see that today’s real estate model is broken. It may have worked beautifully in the past, but as times change, so must we. At Nextage Realty, we’re taking the Power of WE® to a new level as we set new expectations, new standards and a new way of building business.
Many large real estate companies are struggling to add new offices, to keep existing offices open and to find creative ways to retain their agents. On the flip side, agents are making less money than they have in past years, are looking for other income opportunities or are simply leaving the industry. Smaller brokers cannot survive because they’re losing agents and they can’t close enough transactions to keep the doors open.
In today’s marketplace, both agents and brokers need to work with a company that puts the consumer first, promotes teamwork, and allows agents to build a real estate business without limitations. Nextage Realty International, LLC is leading the way by providing a solution that gives broker/owners a system that helps both recruit and retain agents and allows agents to build a business that does not rely exclusively on their personal production. At Nextage Realty, it’s about “building a business, not just doing business®.”
Join us as we usher the real estate industry into its next era, the WE world of real estate!
