There is a lot of information in this forum about which companies to avoid, but I haven't found a post listing the top companies to try to get in with. If someone can direct me to this information I will be much obliged. I'm interested to know who people are getting most of their work from and who is easiest to work with.
I've said this before in a previous post. Listen to BPWY, GTX, Swiftres, Wannabe, Mtmmtman and a few others (sorry guys). They know what they are talking about.
IMHO, the companie(s) that you are looking for do not exist. The easy to work for ones don't have a lot of volume or have long payment terms. The ones with the highest work load give you the most headaches, chargebacks, etc. It is up to each individual to determine what is best for their individual company needs and tolerance. There are guys (and gals) on here that will swear by National XXXXXX and I personally dropped them because I couldn't tolerate all the BS that I got.
Do yourself a huge favor. If you want this line of work, try to get in with local agents. If you can get in with a local bank, great. It probably won't happen because my experience says the local banks turn their realtor into their asset manager to handle the property. My local bank whom I have 3 checking accounts, a savings account, a residential mortgage and 2 commerical mortages with doesn't give me work. I'm told all the time they would love for me to do the work but until their broker gives it to me, I'm SOL.
I am personally down to 2 nationals that I work for. Are they great, maybe. Would I reccommend them to anyone? No. What works for me probably wouldn't work for you.
Wish you the best of luck............
