Choose a sponsoring broker to support you through the process.

To start a career in real estate in Utah you must have a broker to sponsor you through the licensing process and provide you with a launch pad for your new career. This broker will be a career and education mentor providing you with an inside view into the day-to-day operations of a real estate agent. Do your research and find a brokerage that reflects your values, interests, and market niche. Remember that you’ll represent the broker you choose, and they will represent you.

It’s important to find a good fit when picking a broker to work with and it’s a key factor to becoming a successful UT real estate agent. The following questions will help you find the right broker:

  • What is their reputation, both locally and nationally?
  • What kind of real estate agents are they looking for?
  • Are they technologically advanced and up-to-date with the latest systems?
  • How do they support their agents with education and training?
  • What kind of commission structure do they offer?
  • Do they offer benefits?
  • Do they provide their agents with leads and marketing material?
  • Is there room to grow with the brokerage?
