The banks are now changing the area's in which they work. Some companies are every 3 months and others are every 6 months. Writing to an asset manager is a complete waste of time. They do not want you to write to them ,l they dont have time to look at your letter and will not give out work based on a letter asking for listings. It may actually get you off their list.
Asste managers work with a team of people, there are processors, preporty preservation specialist, listing specialists, a specialist to negotite offers and a speicialist that takes care of the closings. the team will pick a realtor based on experience and a grade form what they have done in the past. it will be for completing bpo's and doing a great job, it will be from a refferral from another bank or company they do business with . they just dont pick strangers, they pick who is known to them by their hard work. Bpos are the key. Any money paid ofr a list is a complete waste of time and money.
Once an agent does get a listing and does a good job, they tend to stick with that agent, some companies only allow each agent to have 4 or 5 agents at a time and others will give everything to 1 agent until they cant handle it anymore. so sign up to do bpos, your name will get known, the bpos are graded and you will be assigned a rating, when they have an opening they will call on you. However it is like coming to the baseball game in teh top of the ninth inning, you missed 8 innings already, most companies lists are full and they are not taking on new agents. Earn you way in, becuase the list wont buy your way in.
