What makes real estate teams take the leap to independence?

Running a top team and turning it into a thriving brokerage is many agents' dream
  • A team decides to make the move to become a brokerage for many reasons: life events, a series of small events or the desire to build a legacy.
  • Teams who break off to form brokerages try to retain what they love about their team.

For some successful teams, the decision to break out and set up their own brokerage can be gradual as the argument for freedom builds over time. For others, a life event can be the trigger.
