Real estate agents who are looking for work at brokerage firms can go directly to a company’s website. Most national realty companies have a page on their site that enables you to pursue a career with them. Smaller local companies can also announce on their websites that they are hiring.
There may be a tab at the top of the homepage labeled “Join Us”, or “Careers”. Sometimes the link can be found at the bottom of the webpage (website footer).
Not all realty firms are created equal, especially if you’re a new agent. Affiliating with the right company can truly make a significant difference in your success. Before you start, read our article on choosing the right brokerage: How to Choose the Right Real Estate Brokerage to Work For.
