Hire “Brains and Character” Over Experience; Avoid “Crisis Hiring”

We have discovered over much trial and error that it is almost always better to hire “brains and character” over experience. By using a strong screening process and our training program, we figured out how to find associates who can use their aptitude and discipline to quickly pass up (in a matter of months) even the most seasoned employees at other firms.

We bring this up b/c we see so many Realtors and loan officers engaged in “crisis hiring,” where they are looking for anybody with experience to fill a gap in the short run. It is far cheaper and more effective in the long run to hire smart people and train them.

More on how to hire and train in future blogs.
