First of all, why do they need my agent to begin with? Second, how do I pick which one to offer up? And third, do I have to volunteer someone as tribute, to begin with? Is there any way around this?”

- It’s ok to cultivate client relationships 100% on your own.
- If you have a complicated deal, or a contract that you need assistance negotiating, this is a great time to bring an agent in to the process.
- When bringing in your agent, make sure to go first with the agent that represents you in that region.
- If the work is outside of a geographical region where you have exclusive representation, it’s ok to play favorites and pick the agent who you have the best relationship with.
- Bringing an agent into a job will help improve your relationships and could even help you land an agent you’ve been wanting to sign with.
