I just transferred my license to EOP Real Estate, LLC.
I got my license 2 years ago and affiliated with the Long & Foster office in Olney, MD. I was very impressed with the dynamic manager and immediately felt at home there. Over these 2 years the office has seen many changes, some for the better, others not. I have developed very special relationships with the other agents and I have learned a lot from them. I am confident that these friendships and relationships will endure even though several of us have changed companies.
I have since moved (personally) from Olney and it was becoming increasingly inconvenient to use the office resources. It was obvious that a change might be necessary. I struggled with the choice of just transferring to another Long & Foster office close to my home or starting fresh with a new company.
My decision to change affiliations was not an easy one. I am someone who is not good with change and I like to stay where I am comfortable. However, I could not let fear hold me back from taking a chance that I think will be beneficial for my business.
After reading blogs by Dianne Aurit about starting a brokerage and talking to Stewart Penn about the benefits of being independent, I feel I need to give the independence (at least semi-independence) a try. I am grateful to both of them for taking the time to provide me with important information. I talked to my current and past clients and everyone indicated that they would work with me regardless of my affiliation. All were supportive of my choice.
I decided on EOP because the broker is very dynamic and seems to have a good balance between allowing me my independence but still being available when I need him. In addition, EOP Real Estate's focus on community service aligns well with my only value of giving back.
I am excited about this change and I am looking forward to seeing where this decision takes me professionally.
