Why should i do business with a RCIIQ broker?
Take advantage of the added value of independent real estate brokers
Independent real estate brokers are not affiliated to any brokerage firm of the franchise type. In average, they have more than 20 years of experience within the industry. These figures demonstrate that they are first and foremost true professionals. It also shows the difference with their franchised colleagues where there is the largest number of brokers having less than five years of experience.
To stay that long within the industry, these independent entrepreneurs need to show a sense of duty and be dedicated to their work. Relying on their consulting role, independent brokers profit from their extensive knowledge of the industry. Furthermore, they provide customized follow ups for all of their projects.
Apart from their years of experience, surveys conducted with independent brokers have revealed data of the utmost importance for consumers:
· 72% of independent brokers have studied beyond the college level.
· 65% of independent brokers have stated that they are engaged in continuous training in fields not related to the industry and not necessarily required by law. Such data really shows the independent brokers' concern to have the right skills to meet their profession's requirements. At the same time, it ensures consumers of the quality and expertise of independent brokers.
· 90% of independent brokers work full-time within the real estate brokerage industry.
· Most of the independent brokers work within a team (an average of three brokers per office) and operate from a place of business.
In addition, independent real estate brokers constitute more than 37% of all licensees identified by the Organisme d'autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ)*. Therefore, they are part of the most significant group of professionals in real estate to practice in Québec. They can be found in all regions of Québec.
