That will depend on your brokerage and the contract you have, as well as whatever requirements your Real Estate Board and MLS might have for moving to a new brokerage.

You will have to read your contract with your current brokerage.  Do they keep clients that are in contract with the brokerage or will they cancel and let you take them?  The client is actually the client of the broker, so that's up to your current broker and your signed agreement with them and what happens upon departure.-Kasey

  1. Decide what you want
  2. Talk to your present broker about your concerns
  3. Interview other brokers
  4. Decide whether to stay or move.
  5. Notify your old broker, dont burn bridges.
  6. Sign on with the new broker
  7. notify the state and send in the form with money attached.

Of course your state may be different, ask your broker what the process is.

Out here in California, the Broker OWNS THE LISTING!  If they die or change any listings have to be resigned.  If you change companies in the middle of a listing, better hope your Broker is feeling generous because they can keep your listing and you'll be SOL!

As many have said, it depends on the contract you have with your broker. The existing listings, though, belong to the company you are leaving. Your company can decide whether they wish to keep that listing with them or not. I bet most will want to.

You'll have to read your contract with your existing broker to see how they handle listings when you leave. I had some listings when I switched brokers and my previous broker let me take them with me once the sellers signed off on it.

You have to check the contract you signed with your current broker.  The broker may or may not allow you to transfer the listing to your new broker. The contract you signed will spell it out for you.

Check with your board of realtors to find out the process for switching from one brokerage to another.

No, unless your seller agrees to cancel, then renew with you at your new place, but even that has to be with the consent of the original listing broker, to whom the listing belongs. You may have to split the commission in some way.

It depends.  What does your agreement with your broker state?   As far as listings, in California our agreement with sellers state the broker "owns" the listing but I've seen many agents leave one brokerage in the morning and in the afternoon that listing will pop up with a new brokerage and that same agent.

It depends on your jurisdiction and mls how this is handled from a paperwork standpoint. I have switched brokers several times and my listings went with me to the new brokerage. However, keep in mind the listing agreement is actually not with you but with your current brokerage, so they could refuse to release it. If they do that, your client can ask for a withdrawal, but they might still not be allowed to relist with you in a new brokerge until the old agreement has expired.

In CA it is very easy, you just sign a new contract with a new broker and your new broker does the rest. The only thing you have to verify: your correct lisitngs and escrow, since most probably you have to leave them with your previous broker.

Like many other agents have said, listings in Arizona are with the broker, so it is entirely up to them whether they will keep it or allow you to terminate the contract and re-list it with another brokerage. I would imagine most brokers would not allow you to take a listing with you, especially if they provided you with the lead.
