You will meet a few teams in your office or another firm. Teams can consist of principal broker, listing/buyer specialist, transaction coordinator. It’s nothing to be intimidated by. For some like to work with teams while others be the lone wolf.
I want to eventually get on a team. They also help a lot and such. Having a transaction coordinator can be helpful since they take care of documents and such. Also some have assistants who help them out. But if they are unlicensed assistants they can only do so much and tell you so much.
So you will come across a bit while in the business. You will meet lots of people.
Specialist…. There are quite a few out there in our profession. We have commercial, listing, buyer, and foreclosure, to name some.
Most specialist in the listing and buying field are on teams. Because one agent on the team can handle all the listings while the other takes care of the buyers. It’s a good deal for someone who only wants to work one side.
I want to be a buyer specialist. Like I’ve said before I enjoy helping someone find their new home. It’s what got me interested in this field of work. I don’t mind listing but I prefer the buying side of it.
Just like foreclosure agents can be just regular agents. They just know how to work with foreclosure homes. There’s no schooling on the side. These agents take the initiative to research on their own to learn what goes through dealing with a foreclosure home.
Commercial agent, same there is no schooling. Commercial agents normally just deal with commercial properties. You can find commercial guys also on a team or on their own. So if you get clients that are looking commercial and you don’t feel confident, don’t be afraid to refer them over or ask for help. There will be most likely at least one commercial agent in your office.
