This month, we’ll delve into what’s working — and what’s not — for indies in 2021, with an eye toward next year too. Stay with us to find out insights from top brokers and how you can grow your business with just as much success.

It’s never been a more interesting or exacting time to be an indie broker. In November, Inman celebrates the indie by narrowing in on what growth tactics are working best and what tech is emerging that offers the best competitive advantage.

November is Indie Brokerage Month at Inman. If you run an indie brokerage, then you probably already know this: Striking out on your own and diving into an endeavor like that is no easy task. Keeping it running and healthy over the long haul? That’s an even bigger challenge. But don’t fret. We’re here to help you skillfully navigate this business as an indie broker. 

This month, we’ll delve into what’s working — and what’s not — for indies in 2021, with an eye toward next year, too. We’ll talk to top indie agents and leaders and share how they stay competitive today (and of course, how you can rise to the top, too).

What’s more, we’ll dig deep into new platforms and tools that have emerged over the past few years. And we’ll ponder where it’s all going with the help of a slew of Inman contributors. Because it’s not just a business, it’s a way of life.
