You have concerns about your current agency.
If you are concerned or uncomfortable, you probably have an immediate need to find a new home for your real estate business and clients. Maybe your company support is uneven or leadership is stalled or non-existent, or you are just not comfortable with the direction of the company. Or maybe it’s not even them — maybe you just plain need a change to get jump-started for 2017.
These are all valid reasons to be ‘on the market’.
DANGER: Be careful. Your immediate need has to be tempered by a reasoned approach to finding a new ‘home’! You need to take the appropriate amount of time to evaluate your options. You need to make a move that you will not regret later for having not investigated deeply enough.
However, you cannot wait too long. The longer you remain in a bad situation, the longer it will take to get your business back up to speed.
ADVICE: Decide what matters most to you. Maybe you need a quality office environment, or a good coach, or marketing support. Maybe you need help with relocation business or technology support.
Next consider company size. Does big offer what you need? Is smaller better for you? Evaluate a couple of examples of the most prevalent options.
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS: Interview the companies carefully for compatibility. In this scenario you are probably more sensitive to cultural factors such as confidence and trust in the office admins and manager. You should look carefully at their expectations of your production. Focus your investigation on how that company deals with transitioning your business.
