Whether you’re just starting out or looking to make a switch to a new brokerage after many years, there are several key considerations to take into account.
RISMedia sat down with DeLisa Rose, a leading broker with eXp Realty in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, during last year’s NAR Conference & Expo in San Diego, who shared point-by-point, detailed information on commission splits and caps, what questions agents should ask during interviews, and lists the ways agents can compare and contrast different firms. She also outlines the ways in which agents can get their business off the ground and running (and poised for success!) once they’ve selected a firm.
