I received an email from a student today asking if I thought he should work on a team as he starts his real estate career. This is an individual decision and is one that should not be taken lightly.
One of our instructors, Chris Montague, started in the business and worked on a team with a top producer. He says that he learned sales skills and discipline that he would not have learned if he started on his own. I have uploaded his mentor Robert Adams' interview with us to YouTube.

I am blogging about this because I suspect that some of you may be considering working on a team as well. Before you make this decision, I would recommend reading this article that does a good job of pointing out the pros and cons of the team model.
