This month’s situation: A successful longtime partnership is coming apart, and the broker is caught in the middle.
- In-house partner/team breakups are tough on everyone…including brokers. Everyone loses something in the process.
- Brokers can try to referee disagreements over minor issues, but must be very careful to remain neutral when the breakup is actually underway.
- Most breakups can be managed and even avoided with a good pre-partnership agreement.
