It was a sad day when my first brokerage was bought by franchise.  Last eight years I have been with company that is very similar in management style.  Love it

No, my first brokerage was Merrill Lynch Realty in La Jolla, CA and then they were bought out by Prudential California and then they were bought out by Berkshire Hathaway. I have changed offices enough to learn how most, if not all the big brokerages do business.

I'm in my 4th brokerage in 34 years.  And the only reason I moved from any of them is that my beloved locally owned medium sized company got bought by a big box.  And it was always within a few months of the company ordering very expensive and large golf umbrellas with the company logo.  In my current office, we have all made our broker promise, NO UMBRELLAS!

In 36 years I have been with 5 companies and one of them was my own which we ran for 10 years. I would not do it again at this stage of my career. The agents definitely make more than the broker. I get all the company benefits of a showing service, receptionist, making appointments, stationary products, telephone, internet, color printing, webinars, online training and brochures and am at 100% since I capped early this year. You can't beat that.

Yes, even after my first year Peter Mohylsky, I am still with the same brokerage and have not changed!  For me it was a simple and easy choice as Roger and I were 'Team Angeloni' and working out of the same office.  I did interview our Manager, and this was a person that Roger really connected with, so it worked for me.  It would have been more difficult if I would have connected with a different Manager out of another brokerage, so I did not do the interviewing, as other newbies did.
