Being with Keller Williams does make a big difference when talking with buyers & sellers. They already know KW and I do not have explain anything about the company. I have worked with smaller local companies and I have expain every detail of the company to my leads.
Zero. It should be the individual and not the brokerage.
I believe it is a large part of help in the beginning of a career. I have personally seen the benefits of having resources behind you can do. Having a recognized brand name opens doors that would have otherwise been closed. The tools and support provided have been wonderful. Operating under the Coldwell Banker Franchise has been very positive experience.
not a member but I have heard great things from others who are.
never worked for a franchise and don't plan to become one so I can't help on this. I will say that I put a lot into training at my independent firm.
I do not think it helps me at all. I don't take company referrals and get my own business. Clients don't seem to care what the company offers, just what I can do for them.
Eatly in my career it helped because we had floor time and more calls and walk ins but the Internet has caused different buyer behavior so it's less important .
It has it's pros and cons. Mostly educational events, CE opportunities, tips, etc, but real referrals are rare. But, I have listed a few properties simply because people wanted to use a well known and established brokerge like Remax.
The name recognition of RE/MAX has been very profitable for me.
When I was a member of a franchise, I found no particular benefit to getting business. I generated ALL my own leads. Name recognition was nice but I'm a little too rogue to enjoy being in a "franchise policy box".
As a Keller Williams agent...rarely a month goes by that we don't receive at least one referral....and often those blossom to other sales.
