A Chicago Agent magazine survey: Agents on Recruiting

by Chicago Agent

We asked local agents a few questions about recruiting in Chicagoland real estate. Here’s what they told us:




Of those agents who selected “other,” here’s a sampling of the responses they wrote in:

  • “Culture”

  • “I was unhappy with leadership.”

  • “It’s a combination of split, resources and support.”

  • “Brokerage resources, support and commission split.”

  • “My previous brokerage’s local reputation was becoming a problem.”

  • “The owner himself, his plans for the future and how he was going to achieve them.”



Of those agents who selected “Other,” here are the challenges they described:

  • Agents tend to stay at their company.

  • Teams vs. working solo – I was recruiting for a team.

  • Establishing enough value for them to leave their current spot.

  • The potential candidate was not sure what they wanted to do.

  • Many agents do not see the big picture of being part of a team.

  • I did not have set goals for recruiting. My office offered monetary incentives that were larger than normal, and I jumped on it.
