JBGoodwin New Agent Incentive Packet

JB Goodwin new agent hiringWhen selecting a Broker, compare what JBGoodwin REALTORS® provides to HELP YOU be successful in the real estate business.

When you team up with a broker you are going into business together. Selecting a broker is more than just considering a commission split. You need to determine what the broker pays for on your behalf and the systems they have to help you succeed.

How good can you be? Some agents will never know because they are not in the best place to learn. John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, "For all the sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: 'It might have been!'"

Education is critical in helping you achieve your personal and financial goals. Don’t sell yourself and your education short.

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest" -Benjamin Frankin
