Show Me The Money; Recruiting Real Estate Agents

The time real estate agents hear Show Me the Money, like the screen in Jerry McGuire, is more than most people can handle. However, the clientele works with their life’s most significant purchase or sale. Yelling louder and louder for your client to get everything on their wish list makes the best real estate agents.


At ERA Real Solutions Realty, our real estate market strategy to have the best agents for our clients is the heart of our mission, culture, and team mentality. Creating the best team for each market is how we succeed. If these things are in place, we show our agents the money.


Five things we consider when recruiting:


1. Not Always About the Money:

Changing jobs isn’t all about the money, either, as 74 percent of younger employees would accept a pay cut for a chance to work at their ideal job, and 23 percent of those seeking a job wouldn’t need a pay increase to take a new position.


2. Leadership is accessible.

Leaders are visible and accessible: Employees support leaders who are transparent, accessible, honest, authentic, and who invest in them. When an organization’s leaders are front and center and make themselves available to everyone, it creates a sense that “we’re all in this together,” and employees are much more likely to feel good about the goals they’re working towards and the company’s mission.


3. Give the employees the recognition they deserve.

“Having a positive culture and workplace environment helps a lot, as it encourages teamwork and communication, which increases engagement and opportunities for teammates to learn from each other. We also do regular shoutouts to people at all levels of the organization for great work or superior effort. These kudos cost nothing but provide important public recognition for a job well done, effectively compensating people in the form of social currency, which is highly valued.” – Gary Beasley, co-founder and CEO of Roofstock


4. Foster a collaborative environment, not a competitive one

People, in general, want an enjoyable place to work. For millennials, that means a site that is not cutthroat. According to The Intelligence Group, 88% of millennials prefer a collaborative environment to a competitive one. Working with enthusiastic, positive, energetic people who’re at the same time professional at their fields and share professional values is like a gift from heaven.


5. Opportunity to Advance and Learn

Employees like to know that there is a pathway that will allow them to move up the organization’s ladder. They do not want to be stuck in a dead-end job with no possibility for career growth and development. Employers that promote from within and offer development opportunities will have a higher rate of employee retention than those that do not.
