There are many reasons why real estate agents might join a real estate team. Perhaps they are looking for more support in their business, or they want to take advantage of the resources that the team has to offer. In any case, real estate teams need to create a value proposition that will attract real estate agents and convince them to join. In this article, we will discuss some different ways that real estate teams can create value for real estate agents.
Provide Agents With Support and Resources
One way that real estate teams can create value is by providing support and resources to their agents. This might include things like training, coaching, marketing assistance, and lead generation tools. By offering these types of support, real estate teams can help their agents grow their businesses independently and be more successful.
When real estate teams provide agents with tools and resources so that they can improve their business independently, agents will have a much better growth potential than teams that solely provide agents with leads.
When your only value proposition to real estate agents is that you provide leads, this actually caps your market share since agents who join your team are now reliant on you and your leads to produce any sales. This means that the size of your team (and therefore the size of your income) is capped or limited by the number of leads that you can generate.
Overall, real estate teams that provide support and resources to their agents are more likely to attract agents who are more independent and can be successful in the long run. Agents will appreciate the assistance that the team provides and be more likely to stay with the team for a longer period of time.
If you are looking for a way to create value for your real estate team, consider providing support and resources to your agents. This will help them succeed individually while also strengthening the team as a whole.
Access to Networks
Another way that real estate teams can add value is by providing a strong network of agents. When agents join a team, they are joining a community of professionals who can help them connect with new clients and grow their business. This type of networking can be extremely valuable for real estate agents.
Additionally, real estate teams can provide a valuable networking opportunity for their agents. By working together, real estate agents can share ideas and learn from each other. This can be an invaluable resource for new or experienced agents alike. Another great benefit for agents who have larger networks is that they now have more agents in their database to give and receive referrals from.
On average real estate agents lose out on 25% or more of their full commission potential because they don’t take advantage of the backend of a transaction. This means that most real estate agents will represent a client who is moving to or from a new area once, instead of finding referral partners in that area to take care of the other side of that relocation and earn a referral.
If agents are on a real estate team with agents in other areas or even states, then they are now able to take or give referrals of their clients who have a property to buy or sell in another market to the agents on their team.

Exclusive Deals or Partnerships
Finally, real estate teams can create value by offering access to exclusive deals and opportunities. For example, the team might have relationships with local lenders or real estate companies that can offer special rates or discounts to its members. By providing these types of benefits, real estate teams can help their agents save money and make more money.
Additionally, real estate teams can offer exclusive partnerships or deals with builders, lenders, investors, or other vendors in real estate. This type of arrangement can be extremely beneficial for agents who are looking to expand their business.

The only issue with giving agents on your team exclusive deals and access to certain vendors is that this also can create the problem that was listed earlier with teams that only give their agents leads.
Giving agents on your team exclusive deals can cause your agents to be reliant on you or those services, which can be a major problem for both you and the agents if one or more of your vendors decides to back out of the deal or goes out of business for some reason.
What is Your Team’s Value Proposition
Creating a value proposition for real estate agents is an important way for real estate teams to attract new members and keep the ones they have. By implementing any of the options listed above, real estate teams can provide real value to the agents who work with them. This, in turn, will help the team be more successful and continue to grow.
