“I have been up against tough competition all my life; I wouldn’t know how to get along without it.”—Walt Disney

Independent brokerages face an uphill battle when it comes to recruiting top agents. Competing against big-name brokerages pits indies against recognizable logos, perceived culture, and, in many cases, benefits. Typically agents have heard about national name brokerages before they even enter real estate school. Many of them get their license and choose these brands over the smaller indie brokerages because they believe the recognition will help them build their real estate businesses, especially when they’re just starting out.

Next week at Inman Connect New York, indie brokers can learn how to recruit competitively, what it means to leverage your indie brand, using your brokerage culture and proptech that will attract top producing agents. Discover your brokerage’s unique value proposition during enlightening sessions with brokers who are making a dent in the industry right now.

During the session, “How Indies Can Recruit Competitively in 2022,” Sarah Richardson, founder and CEO of Tru Realty, Dava Davin, CEO of Portside Real Estate Group, and Angela Oakes, founder and CEO of KAC Consulting will be divvying out their strategies at Inman Connect New York. Join in the conversation with these top indie brokers to learn how they have leveraged their marketing savvy, forward-thinking recruiting strategies, and emerging tech to build profitable teams and beat out the competition for high-quality recruits.

When you follow the indie broker track at ICNY, you’ll gain actionable takeaways you can implement in your brokerage immediately that will help you jump to the front of the competition in your market.

ICNY starts on Tuesday. Be among the smartest brokers in the industry, learn cutting-edge strategies and experience the energy of thousands of like-minded real estate pros. There’s still time to get to New York, but don’t wait!
