I'm an investor, not an agent. However, from what I've seen, you have to sign up with each particular bank. At which point, you'll be placed on a first come, first serve type list. The bank will then give each person a chance until they fail or quit. It may take a long time, but you can't get the position unless you sign up for it. I say get your name on the list ASAP Deb, because you never know what could happen.
