Default Re: Exit Realty

Shawn -

I don't think anyone here was talking down on Exit as a company, or as a business model. What irks a lot of people is the "residual income" theme of the company. While it's worked well for you - $2000/month in residual - I don't think that this is the norm. In order to earn $2k/month in residual, you've recruited 2 top earners - $20k/month in production = $2k/month for you. That's a tough feat...$10k/month earners don't grow on trees.

What ends up happening to a lot of agents who choose to go after the residual income brokerages (yours isn't the first, and won't be the last) is that they go in very gung ho about recruiting & lose focus on what their primary focus SHOULD be - selling houses.

I'm sure that your Exit office is an excellent place to work - and I know that there are many Keller, Re/Max, CB, & private brokerages around the country that are, as well. Bottom line...judge an office as just that - an office. If you fit well in a particular office, that's where you fit.
