I notice there is a lot of movement on agents between companies, kind of natural when things get tough, however are they leaving because of the wrong reason. ie they blame the company for their failure?
I am writing because a husband wife team left our office for another company in town. Now this is no great loss because i am not sure they closed a deal in 2 years.
Now you could say we didn't offer them enough, but we would take exception to that. Keller Williams has incredible training, resources, and a culture of help and support. Yet they never came into the office to take advantage of it. It makes me soo frustrated.
But if you can not even come in to the office and find out home others are doing it. I would surely show anyone! and you can't get off your duff to find a lead, then you can go to another company.
When I asked why they left it was because the new company promised them leads. Wow a company giving (make that selling at a hefty commission) leads.
- if you can't convert your own leads, why should i give you my good leads you can't handle them.
- how many people can the company offer that to?
- why would an agent be beholden to a company to receive leads? Oh i just answered that one above.
What do you think? Am i being hard on these people?
I have followed the Keller Williams systems and worked them (if not faithfully) I am a far better agent than i ever could have been at my old company. I DO NOT NEED TO BUY LEADS FROM MY COMPANY.
I'd love your comments.
