Real Estate Agents Are Jumping Ship and Becoming Free Agents

More and more real estate agents are switching brokerage firms to pursue better deals and commissions.

“There’s not a lot of brand loyalty,” said Billy Rose, an agent and co-founder of the Agency in Beverly Hills, CA. “A lot of times they become mercenaries.”

The Agency is a firm that attracts many real estate agents because of its marketing support. While most firms have one or two marketing people, the Agency has 20 for tasks like posting listing photos. This kind of support gives agents more time to close more deals.

“In most states, individual policies significantly add to the already high cost of insuring a teen driver,” says Laura Adams, InsuranceQuotes.com’s senior analyst. “Parents with an 18-year-old on their policy pay an average of 77% more than they would without the teen. While this certainly isn’t cheap, it’s usually much better than the individual policy option.
