The Top 3 Questions To Ask Before Joining a North Carolina Real Estate Team
These questions will help you choose the best brokerage for you.
Congratulations on obtaining your real estate license in North Carolina! Now that you are qualified to sell houses in our area, it is important to consider some key questions before joining a brokerage or team. As a new agent in the marketplace, I recommend asking the following three questions during your interviews with teams:
1. What kind of training programs do you offer? It is essential to know if the team or brokerage has a comprehensive and successful training system that has helped agents thrive in the industry over the years.
2. How many people on your team own real estate themselves? Since you will be dealing with people's biggest assets, their homes, it is crucial to learn from individuals who have gone through the process themselves. Understanding how many homeowners are in your work environment can also give you a sense of the team's level of expertise.
"You are also interviewing the team or brokerage to see if they’re the right fit for you."
3. How did you all handle the difficult situations in the past few years? The real estate industry has recently faced some challenging times, so it is vital to know how the team or brokerage managed these situations as a group and persevered through any obstacles. Then you know if you can rely on them during difficult times.
Remember, you are also interviewing them to see if they’re the right fit for you. Also, avoid leading with questions about commission or salary, as that may convey the impression that you are solely focused on money.
