Starting your own real estate firm can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your real estate career. In most states, you have to have a minimum of two years of experience in selling real estate, and are required to take a state-approved class. Many real estate agents already know the ins and outs of selling property, and starting your own real estate firm can be a great way to make more money and build more security for career. Getting started is mostly about obtaining all the necessary insurance—errors and omissions insurance for brokerages in this case—finding good office space and getting the funding you need to run your office for the first few months to get your feet on the ground.
Now that you’re in the game, you have to start recruiting agents and building a clientele. The best real estate agents will bring their clients with them. You can build some of your clientele on the strength of agents and brokers that you recruit. You should also work to develop a strong web presence. Some of this should be done on social media, but you can also help your business out by building a professional and intuitive website allowing customers to browse your properties and get in touch with your office.
