Agent/broker perspective: Refereeing team and partner disputes

Brokers should tread lightly when in-house teams are breaking up
  • 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.

This month’s situation: A successful longtime partnership is coming apart, and the broker is caught in the middle.
