Even though Millennials are now the largest demographic population in the world, it can be surprisingly hard for them to find jobs due to how conservative many businesses can be. So, if you’re under the age of 40, and you’re about to wrap up an online real estate course in BC, you need to know how to find a real estate brokerage agency which will be a good environment for you.
At Quick Pass Master, we’re all about helping the next generation of realtors succeed. Here are a few tips for spotting a real estate brokerage agency that will boost your career, rather than holding you back.
- Look for a genuine social media investment.
A modern, progressive brokerage agencies are going to understand the value of social media. They’ll be using multiple sites to promote themselves and their homes as well as -hopefully- using social media for partner recruitment as well. Avoid firms which don’t have a strong social presence, that’s a big red flag that they’re using outdated methods or are afraid to change with the times.
- Is their website mobile-friendly?
Here’s another way to tell if your brokerage is actually clued in about online matters. Check and see if they’re using an adaptive design for their website which allows it to look good on your smartphone. If they’re still using a dedicated mobile (m.website.com) link or, worse, simply don’t care about how their website appears on mobile, they won’t be a good fit for you.
- What do you know about their company culture?
Nothing says a brokerage has to be stiff-necked and boring. You might occasionally have to put on a suit if you feel it appropriate for that client, but things don’t have to be that way in the office. Talk to them about their company culture in interviews, or take a tour of the offices, and see what sort of feel you get from the place.
- Are they offering decent benefits?
Some older or more outdated brokerages treat their workers more like independent contractors and expect agents to foot the bill for all their own expenses. Look for ones that actually give you some benefits.
