So I've had my first interview today with the century 21 everything went pretty well thanks to some other posts here I was able to get a hold of some questions that I should ask and what to expect after about 25 minutes and trying to determine if the training would take me away from my exam prep she broke out the contract even though I am pre-license and currently awaiting an exam date she offered to put me up at a desk and throw me right into training so this way I can hit the ground running once my license is active I told her that I will reply in a few days and have a few other interviews The commission rate seems pretty fair and the training looks awesome however one thing I did notice I walked in dressed to the 9's suit and tie Rolex on my wrist and honestly I felt out of place and overdressed what is the rule me myself I would preferred to be in a suit every day it's just the way I've seen agents dress in the past I guess what I'm trying to say is is too flashy no good interviewing with Coldwell Banker tomorrow at 10 AM hope all go's well

Congrats on completing your first interview.

I find attire to be one of the more distracting challenges in doing business. One of my mortgagee acquaintances put it well when he shared his own experience with me. He found his business suit worked well downtown in our local, mid-sized city, but seemed to alienate clients in the nearby rural areas.

My own challenge is to dress appropriately enough for field work as a home inspector while being able to quick-change into clothes appropriate enough for meeting with realtors and loan officers.

Dressing for success has many interpretations. You might find that your preferred attire affects your eventual choice of a broker. Good luck in your search.

Hey Mark,

Grant gave some pretty solid advice.

It all depends on what you're selling and where. If you're selling a farm then a suit and a Ferrari will definitely be out of place, but if you're selling a multi-million dollar home then you want to dress the part.

But, again, you also have to check how everyone else is dressing around you. I remember seeing agents in California selling expensive homes dressed like they're about to go on vacation.

Dress to show respect for the person you're interviewing. You won't be making a big mistake . . . . few will be offended by you showing "too much respect" !

You can always dress down to fit the environment later.

And don't expect them to dress-up just because you're coming into Town . . . . But it doesn't work that way !

You ultimately have be hang your license somewhere where you feel comfortable as well as somewhere you feel will put you on the path to success.

The others above are ultimately will need to dress to suit the environment. I have clients that expect a suit and tie, and others who have told me flat out that I don't need to be dressed up in front of them. It's what you feel comfortable with, in the end.
