Any recommendations for which brokerage is best for a (40 year old) rookie to start his career? I'm about wrapped up with the real estate course and I'll be sitting for my license shortly.

Some of the big players in my area (silicon valley) are: Intero, Keller Williams, REMax, Alain Pinel.

Also is it very difficult to get on board with a brokerage? My understanding is that it is not like getting a traditional job at a traditional company, which can be difficult. For example I know a number of recent law school grads that are having difficulties getting jobs. I hope real estate is not like this.

You can pretty much go to any brokerage you want. Some don't have any office fees, others do.

I say don't worry about commissions but go find a brokerage that will teach you the ropes, not one that will just through you with the sharks not caring if you ever make it out alive.

I want to go with a company that is well known i.e Coldwell Banker because for one, I really like their TV spots.

I want to do door knocking all day long, maybe 3 times a week from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. When I was in real estate before, I prospected 2 or 3 hours a day in the afternoon, and I did get listings in the neighborhoods that I wanted listings, so I know door knocking works.

I am looking to get back into the business and do things right. I am motivated, but, I have learned from my mistakes.

I highly recommend EXIT Realty. We train our agents really well! We definitely don't just throw you to the sharks. We also have a unique compensation structure that allows our agents to build residual income, as a sort of retirement plan. I've been with EXIT for a little over a year and they just keep improving!
