• Benefits to Joining Barker Hedges

The Benefits of Joining The Barker Hedges Group 

what we offer and why new Minnesota real estate agents should join our team.

Did you know that, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), only 20 percent of real estate agents handle 87percent of all closings? And did you also know that 87 percent of all new agents fail within their first 5 years in the business? These numbers don’t paint the rosiest of pictures, but they also demonstrate how important it is for newly licensed agents to pick the right team or brokerage when first starting out.

Despite those scary numbers referenced above, however, things can (and will) get better, especially if you join the Barker Hedges Group. Also noted by NAR is that REALTORS® with 16 years of experience or more had a median gross income of $78,850, suggesting that if you work hard, keep building your business, and align yourself with a team that puts a heavy emphasis on continued growth and development of its agents, you’re going to be just fine. So with all this in mind, are you ready to learn more about why the Barker Hedges Group may be right fit for you?
