After building a presence in your local market area, and nurturing a growing group of agents, you’ve decided that it’s time to expand by aligning your brokerage business—and your future—with a major real estate franchisor. Or perhaps you’re disillusioned with the franchise you’re currently with and are seeking to switch to another.
No matter the reason, it’s an exciting milestone. But it also requires a great deal of research. A checklist should be compiled before a deep dive into each potential company ensues.
In this exclusive RISMedia Premier report, we spotlight 16 national brands, in alphabetical order, broken down into four sections. A senior executive from each provides an overview of what sets their brand apart. An accompanying chart provides statistical data.
Key takeaways include:
- Why cutting-edge technology must be considered when aligning with a franchise.
- How national franchisors are just as picky about who they choose to onboard as brokerages seeking to join.
- While all franchises differ in size, some are regional and others global, giving brokerages a good range of choices.
- Ways franchises structure their fees, buy-in costs and other financial requirements to attract the right brokerages.
