My brokerage virtually never takes on new agents. If we have newer agents it's because they are part of a team that is associated with our office.

The brokerage is not recruiting or signing up newbies.

However newbies are encouraged to join an in-house team.

Many brokerages use the team structure to  systemically dodge any responsibility to prepare new agents. Nothing new there.

Paul,

The brokerage tends to salivate when it thinks it has a chance to get an experienced agent. Those numbers are small compared to the number of new agents that are brought on.
