How Do Brokers Send Newly Licensed Agents Direct Mail?

Asked by Brian Kurtz, Dearborn, MI Sun Jun 22, 2014

I just checked our state licensing verification system and it does NOT list an address for me. I get no mail either at my home or at my office from brokers wanting me to sign up with them though I feel like I remember that I did at first. Are other states different and disclose the address where you work or live?

In Florida you can get a list from our Department of Business and Professional Regulation of people that are approved to take the test. I used to have it downloaded once a week to recruit new agents when I was a Broker/Team Leader with Keller Williams. Your licensing agency may have a way to download that information as well. I didn't pay for it, I figured out how to download it. Of course that was three years ago and I have NO MEMORY of how I did it. But I would check the free way before paying a service.

There are lists you can buy--not sure where/how they pull the addresses but it may be worth checking out.

That's a good question. I unfortunately don't know the answer, but maybe someone does. I don't receive the sort of direct mail you're talking about either. It would be interesting to know.

You may want to contact the state licensing division and see what the next steps are. Or talk to other local agents. Here in Colorado, you have to "hang your license" with a brokerage firm FIRST before you can actually begin to sell real estate. I wouldn't just be sitting around waiting for brokerage firms to contact you.

Once you establish a brokerage firm, then you'll start receiving mail at that address...like your LICENSE, bills for E & O insurance and other important items like that.

First lesson in being a real estate agent. You must go out there and get what you want. Don't wait for things to fall in your lap.

I got my license back in 2006, so I'm not asking from that angle. I'm more interested in finding out how to contact to people who have recently gotten their licenses but have not gotten set up with a broker yet.

I actually just sold a home and got an email from a broker in my area congratulating me on the sale and then pitching me on the benefits of switching to a new company.

When I think about it, I can't see this working very well. You'd think that it would be better to pull the phone numbers of the agents who've sold stuff and call them. Even better yet, get the list of the people who've just gotten their real estate license and then call THEM.
