The origin of "teams" in real estate.

If you put together a TEAM in a real estate office, there are a lot of dynamics involved. First of all, why put together a team? How big does a team need to be? Or is a team built around people who bring in so much business, they can't handle it all by themselves? Or does a brokerage have a lot of agents who AREN'T bringing in business, so this is a way to give them a piece of the pie?  

OR IS IT THE NEW TRAINING PROGRAM?

Many brokerages have been shrinking in terms of agents and are now out there actively recruiting. Obviously they would like to get experienced agents to join them, but are definitely also recruiting newbies to the field.

In the past established agents have been happy to "mentor" new agents because there was a lot of business to go around, so why not be helpful. But that notion is pretty much out the window. Nowadays it's tough out there!

However, the stars of a brokerage, those who bring in a large number of listings, are prepared to delve out time consuming marketing chores to those who are not so blessed. And that is probably the origin of "teams".  

But I know that there are a whole lot of variations of these "teams" and I would love to hear about them.

PS. This blog was inspired by these ants who had it all together; see how they are actually carrying their booty. Who is in charge? Who is the TEAM LEADER? Who gets which piece of it?

Teams seem to be a good way to share the work and bring in the leads.  It does sound like an efficient way to work.

Evelyn: That seems to be the consensus.

Frank and I work as a team and we compliment each other with our skills, ahve separate cients and fill in for one another when necessary. It's great. I don't think teams are a fad, as agents have realized that they can accomplish more by leveraging their opportunities.

Hella, how the ants work is a good way to describe how a team works.  I have a team of real estate professionals and I find it advantageous to have one.

Frank and Sharon: It's great to have someone to rely on like that. And that you have separate clients, rather than "teaming up" on clients which seems less productive.

Regina: Wow, you are the first one who commented on the photo. I thought they showed great teamwork and it should be if agents got together.
