Our hiring philosophy differs significantly from most of our competitors. We choose agents based on how our philosophies of personal service and commitment blend with the philosophies of the applicant. This careful selection process yields a very low turnover rate – something we are very proud of.
For New Agents: Although subject to modification based on individual situations, our process for hiring agents new to the business is as follows.
After an initial phone or email contact, a personal interview is set up with Scott Lackie or Brad Andersen, co-owners of the company. At this meeting we discuss the industry and the opportunities a real estate career holds.
After this interview, a joint interview and discussion takes place with both owners and the potential agent where the independent contract is discussed as well as the expectations of the management team. This two-interview process gives the applicant an opportunity to get a joint perspective of the industry and the benefits of a career with Griffith, Grant & Lackie.
For Experienced Agents: Our process for hiring experienced agents will usually start with a phone call or email and then proceed as individual circumstances dictate. We are very mindful of the need to conduct these discussions in a confidential manner according to Illinois License Law.
For more information on the hiring process, or careers with our company, please contact either Scott Lackie at 847-234-0485 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Brad W.
