Default Re: Exit Realty

Imho, the best broker is where you get a good split and they're available to help. That Exit stuff encourages to much reliance on recruitment and is like a MLM scheme.
That's pretty much the gist of it. I was actually approached to to take ownership in an existing Exit but passed because I couldn't get behind what they're all about. Too many new agents focus on what I consider distractions. I'm going to get rich by recruiting, I'm going to get rich from kickbacks from my mortgage broker, etc, etc... The bottom line is - sell a lot of houses! If you make that your core goal, and focus on what's going to help you accomplish that goal - you will make money and have a long & successful career! Not that you can't do that with Exit, but the 10% override (which is the main selling point for their agency) isn't going to do much for you. Focus less on what the potential rewards are - 100% of $0 is still $0. Look at your broker/agent relationship in terms of what you get (their services) for what you pay (your split.) Look at places that have great training, great mentorship, great core values, & a great office culture.

Just my 2c!
