What I have found to be the most frequent reason an Agent changes Brokerages and/or is unhappy with their Brokerage, is because the Agent FEELS ALONE. The old “secret sauce” culture still exists in some Brokerages, where Agents are afraid to (or unwilling to) share authentically. In my opinion, Brokerages who do away with the “secret sauce” culture; rather building a culture which encourages an emerging organization of collaboration, will be the Brokerages to watch as the industry moves forward.
What impact does a Brokerage move have on their business? This answer is HIGHLY dependent on the individual, their goals, and the move. There can be a significant impact for the positive, when the move is made in the right way, with the right individualized transition plan.
