Questions To Ask While Interviewing Brokerages

If you're looking for the best real estate brokerage for your business, we suggest using the following questions as a guide. It's recommended to interview multiple brokerages before making a decision. Once you've found the right brokerage for you, we wish you all the best in your real estate career.

  • What is the total cost to be associated with your brokerage?


  • Does the total cost include franchise fees, technology fees, corporate fees, risk assessment fees, admin fees, transaction coordinator fees, and quarterly or annual dues?

  • What exactly are my splits applied towards, and what is included?

  • How much will I pay the brokerage if I make $15,000 from my own client?

  • Do my splits pay for marketing and advertising to build and brand my business?

  • Who pays for my MLS, CTMe, E&O, Board Dues, and Continuing Education fees?

  • Do I have to be an association board member, and if so, who pays the fee?

  • What tools and systems do you have that will guarantee me quality leads?

  • How many closings will I have within the next 12 months from brokerage-provided leads?
