When I first opened my business, it felt like we had a revolving door of people. We interviewed people who seemed perfect for the position and perfect for the company, only to find out weeks later that we had made a mistake.
Over the years, I have tweaked my hiring formula slightly and now ascribe to the concept of hiring based upon core values.
Our core values here at Compass Commercial are:
4. Entrepreneurial Spirit
In the commercial real estate business, integrity can be hard to find and I have learned this the hard way. ~Lynn Drake
Now we look for people who share our core values and train those people accordingly. In doing so, our turnover has significantly reduced, and as we grow, I know we have the right people in the right seats.
I am curious as to what other brokerage firms are doing to get the right agents into their office. Share your stories, please!
