Interviewing with Team Leaders and Brokers

Watch this discussion around the Do's and Don'ts of interviewing.

The Number 1 Mistake Agents Make

When Interviewing with Team Leaders and Brokers

#1 Mindset

  • This interview isn’t about you. It’s about them. Make it about them.
  • Peacock Approach - You need to stand out. Put yourself in the shoes of the Team Leader or Broker Owner
    • They see people like you all day long
    • Don’t talk about yourself
    • Talk about how you think you can benefit the company

Create A Strong First First Impression

  • Send your resume ahead of time and copy the secretary
    • Social Media Links
    • 2 minute or less (or less!) video

The Secrets of a First Impression

  • Greet your first contact with energy and enthusiasm
  • Look the part
  • Pay attention to your body language and make eye contact
  • Be 10 minutes early

Do Your Homework - this shows you care

  • Demonstrate that you’ve done some research on the company you’re looking to join
    • Maybe you know someone who works there
    • Pay a compliment
    • Recognize community services

Ask Questions - this will calm the nerves

  • Have a list of specific questions and write them down
  • Don’t ask what the splits are...not yet
  • What’s the company culture like?
  • What are your expectations for me as an agent in your company?
  • What training does your company provide?

Follow Up - very few will

  • Send a Thank You Handwritten card
    • No one else will
  • Go Above & Beyond
    • Small donation to company charity
    • Reciprocity
