My company buys them and the frames. I buy my own riders to go on them, though.

Keller Agents have "our business our way" and our signs have our names and contact information as we choose it to be designed and displayed...we pay for it...but it is not advertising JUST the brokerage and selling the leads back to their own agetns as others do.

Hi Debbie.  My first two brokerages made me buy signs on Day One.  That's a significant expense for a new agent not making any money because you usually can't buy just one -- the minimum order is five.

My current broker provides signs though we can also buy our own.  A new agent only needs to buy sign riders to go on them.

I think offering free signs is a perk that shows consideration for agents who may be short on funds.

I got three generic signs from the Broker when I joined.

I always buy my signs.

It is very easy to order them from the preferred vendor through the brokerage agent portal site.

I buy my own signs.

What baffles me is that brokerages make a big deal out of the fact that if an agent joins their brokerage, they'll buy signs and business cards for the agent.  

I've seen agents get all excited over that.  It seems like a dumb reason to switch.

The Company furnishes the For Sale Signs. We put name writers on them.  The company pays for them too.  The company also does not charge for putting them up and taking them down.  We believe if we are getting part of the commission, we should do some of the work!

My company give a few to the new agents but from that time on they are on their own. All the signs have to look alike and we have to buy them from the broker.
