Yes, that is correct, interview your prospective brokerage. Even if you received a referral from someone who is having massive success with the brokerage in question, you will still need to interview them as your goals are your own and will have their unique path to manifestation.
But, before you interview, do your research. Here are a few things to keep in mind: Reputation and Track records are important
Partner with a brokerage that can show you receipts of their success. This does not mean ignoring their social presence, but does it line up with the brokerage's brand mission and do they have agents and clients that can attest to their good reputation?
Take inventory of what's important to you. Now, compare that against the values and culture of the brokerage you're considering. Do they value teamwork and collaboration? Is professional development available and how about training? Is it easily accessible? Clearing this sort of information is key. The industry is always evolving, meaning so should your business if you are aiming for longevity and success.
Have you ever heard the saying, "Your real estate business is only as good as your CRM?" The way people connect is becoming more technological. This includes you connecting and following up with potential clients. When comparing brokerages, be sure to take inventory of the type of technology they have available. Different tools like IDX websites and lead generation services are top-tier when laying a solid foundation in a real estate business.
Another thing to keep in mind is your career trajectory as a real estate agent. Ask yourself the aged questions, “Where do I see myself in five years? and “How do I plan to get there?” This is important because if you are looking to grow in your business including shifting into a more leadership role or transitioning into interacting with commercial and investor-fueled clients, it's important to know that the brokerage you are laying a foundation with has the support and guidance to help you grow in that aspect.
