10.  How do I find a Brokerage? Real Estate School of Nevada offers job placement. Don’t look for a company that promises a particular number of leads and high commissions. Look for a company that has a proven track record.

Choose a company that offers services such as: Name recognition, Training and Mentoring, Broker Support, Tools and Systems such as turn key websites, Staff Support, Professional Facilities and Prime Locations.
