Should I stay or should I go: Pros and cons of switching brokerages

  • The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
  • Go where the opportunities are.
  • Keep in mind how your image is affected.

My real estate career began at Coldwell Banker, and my only brokerage change thus far was to Keller Williams Realty four years ago. I am very happy at KW, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enticed by the various offers I have received from competing brokerages. Companies such as Sotheby’s with its incredible luxury branding and Compass with its cutting edge technology make compelling cases as to why I should switch to them.
