Question by Ryan 1: Which real estate companies are best for new agents?
I’m planning on getting my real estate agents license in the next few weeks. I’ve heard that Century 21 and some other companies have their own courses. Is it better to attend their course or just a regular local real estate school. Also what companies are good for new agents.
Any advice you can give is appreciated! Thanks!
Oh and I’ll be getting my license in Tenessee.

You can take the courses through a state-approved online/correspondence course. In California, it was about $ 150 or so for the basic courses to pass DRE exam. If you are good studying on your own, this is a great way to get through it fast. If you’re better in a classroom environment where you can ask questions, then pursue that option.
I can’t recommend a particular company to hang your license with. You’ll want to research the desk fees, commission splits, what type of new agent training they have available, transaction assistance, etc. There are a lot of not-busy licensed agents right now, so you may be best served finding a small company that will help train you vs. a big name brokerage where you have to pay high fees and no one will speak to you.
