I've been a team for over 7 years, so I'd say team!

Delegation, greater volume accomplished, shared responsibilities, everyone working their talents & strengths in concert, time off, coverage for vacations, master mind time, etc.

Lots of perks!

I work solo, but I can see the advantage of teaming up on at least some transactions with another agent.  The huge team thing doesn't seem to work out for either the agents or their clients.

Teams provide tremendous advantages to new agents. Seasoned agents also benefit from being on a team if they just want to focus on working with clients without having to worry about the full spectrum of the associated admin tasks.

Corey - I worked with a team when I was doing mortgages, and it was very difficult for everyone to get on the same page. Everyone had their own opinion about marketing, sales, processes, where to spend our money, etc.

When you are a one man/person show, you are responsible for everything, the good and the bad.

I've done both. I think it depends on your personality and in which situation you thrive - no right or wrong here.

I prefer my current hybrid situation. Several solo agents with a great broker, but with a team spirit of support. I always have help available if I need it and provide the same when I can, but there are no requirements or expectations that I have to fulfill.

Solo here.

I see the benefits of working in a team environment as well as the those things that will disfuse passion.

So, I imagine, if working in a team framework, and I took a tangent to create and test the CIS Score, that much disruption, perceived or real, will effect harmony. To be honest, I am not such a good 'garden keeper" and would prefer the agility of flying solo.
