19 questions agents should ask brokerages when interviewing

Broker-owner and author Randy Zimnoch believes agents and brokerages should have shared values
  • When searching for a brokerage to call home, agents should be asking about the company's core values above all else.
  • Don't ask about commission off the bat.

If you’re a new agent interviewing at San Diego-based Realty National, make sure your first question isn’t, “What are your splits?” That drives broker-owner Randy Zimnoch crazy. Zimnoch is an agent, developer and investor who co-founded Realty National — sister company to FortuneBuilders, the real estate coaching and education company that was founded by Than Merrill — in 2012 and has 50 to 60 agents.
