Analyzing Your Motivations
Agents seek to open their own offices for many reasons, but the primary incentive is autonomy. Is autonomy the reason you want to open your own office? Are you planning to open your own office because you don't think anyone can do it as well as you? Are you thinking about it because you have personality differences with other brokers and can't work for someone else? Do you have agents in your current office who drive you crazy? Do you think you give too much money to your current office and believe you can run a real estate business for less? All of these questions need to be answered before you make a decision.
