1-is it better to go with a firm like equita or fx-and purchase your own leads,,or work for agency which promotes team building such as Leazer Group..I think at 70% rate-that maybe too low to start with the cost of repurchasing leads monthly at 35-40 pp
2-how "exclusive" can the leads you purchased be if several firms offering the same exclusivity/ will clients in the area be unindated with lead cards or door knocks? my OPINION is you can be a very successful agent without the team or mlm component if the vested renewals are there..

1. Start captive and learn on some elses dime. Make sure to get an upfront release.
2. No lead is ever exclusive.
3. The long term money in LI will take years to build up, for most agents, its all about the first year commission.
