Why did I leave?
Why would I have stayed? I wouldn’t have No culture No ethics No fun

So if it was that good, why did I leave?
Why would I have stayed? More money The same opportunity Freedom and flexibility An office closer to home
Why did I move to Ray White? Opportunity to run a department New Business meant I could write my own income Larger team New office still creating its culture Five minutes from home Structure and training
Brand change – does it affect the team?
