I am a new agent at a boutique firm in an outer borough of NYC. While I was told that I'd be mentored before signing on, I feel like I'm getting sub-par basic training, at best... and I feel like this is a wannabe boss; not a mentor..... if anyone from a larger, reputable firm would like to share their experiences, as a new agent, in reference to training, it would be more than appreciated....
There's zero education. This person could care less if you have no market knowledge, in regards to what you're calling about. No metrics. No data. No stats. No reports... simply get on the phone and have a conversation. That's not teaching me anything. Why should I give you 2% of anything I ever make? Let alone 50%.
Moreover, I'm forbidden 🚫 to text this "mentor." Perhaps because he's married and I'm a woman. His prior infidelities, and his spouse's insecurities, has absolutely zero to do with my money 💰 and my business. My texts are always business related, and at appropriate times.... that may not be the reason. Not quite sure. It's an educated guess. He fails to text other (male) agents. So maybe that's not it.
I'm not about to jump ship. I would just greatly appreciate to be aware of other firms training programs, as a reference tool. Because this a joke to me.
I would also like to be aware of typical hours, because I've been told contradictory things. One CRE broker will say 12 hour days, in the beginning. Another will say, 9am to 5pm.
Obviously, what you put in, is what you get out!!! Here, it's limited hours. Feels very limiting.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you so much.
