I'm currently in a transition phase.  I'm currently considering many options such as indy, another wire, but focusing in on the possibility of transfering to another branch.

Can anyone tell me if there any issues that branch managers would have by allowing me to transfer?  I know this is a broad question w/ little context surrounding the issue.  So to help facilitate a better answer, here are the facts:

-My wife has a great job offer near the city I want to transfer to (1 hr away from where I am now) -We have family near that city and want to live closer to them -We want to buy a home in the near future in that area -Many prospects & some clients of mine live nearby -I will try to secure an opportunity to join a very large team in that  office

I have an "ok" size book in terms of assets, but I am concerned b/c I am currently a low producing FA and I believe a part of that is attributed by the lack of support.   I've only been in biz for 3 years, but I'm out of the training program.  I really believe if I am allowed to transfer to a different & supportive environment AND join the team I will have better chance to meet my potential.

Given that my wife will accept this job and we have "zero" choice to live here, is there any reason why the mgr wouldn't let me go?  If so, how would you approach it?  This is as straight forward as it gets.

Thanks everyone,

*bump*  Can anyone offer insight here?  If you've been a mgr before or xferred branches your advice would be helpful.  thanks

Shouldn’t be a big deal…your existing manager might get credit for your production for a year or something, but he’s got nothing to gain by making you commute an hour. I would just go talk to him.

I wouldn't think it would be an issue but you never know.

I tried to change branches within the same complex (same branch manager) for most of the reasons you mentioned and I was told to stay put.

My advise would be to get the team (that you want to join) to request you move to their branch. High producers can get whatever they want and if it's coming from them you probably have a better shot.
