Hi there, I'm in the East Bay of the SF Bay Area (no, not under water yet!) and am needing 1 or 2 USED Supra or GE iBoxes. Prefer the iBox BT LE (blue tooth) but open to the older model. See some older posts here. If you're in the East Bay or San Joaquin Delta area (sons goes to st. Mary's in Stockton), and have 1 or 2 you can sell, let me know. Thx! -James (925.354.1200). ... more

I am not in that area, but at the very least I would be happy to have a conversation with the new agent and give them some tips and ideas.

Kind regards,

I'm not familiar with PacWest but BHGLARR is the association for most of the Westside Realtors in Los Angeles. It covers greater Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. If you are working that area it is (IMHO) the association to join. ... more

Paying for leads is a WASTE OF TIME and MONEY. The leads are shared with too may people who can get very angry at the 2nd to 15th person who calls. The BEST LEADS are the ones you generate for your self. For my my best leads come from my Active Rain Blog. ... more

Could you tell me if a South Dakota realtor license transfers to any other state?

Rich Reed answered:
If your offer is already signed by the buyer, it would likely remain under your current broker. If it's signed and you delay submitting it, you would also likely be violating your fiduciary duty to your client. It would probably be a derogation of duty, too, if your buyer has directed you to prepare an offer but you're delaying for personal reasons, or worse, for personal gain, ie. better commission split. If you're a Realtor, you might want to consult with CAR legal about this. Best of luck! ... more

Sorry, there is no way to get around the minimum documented experience requirement. CalBRE will check and count the time your real estate salesperson license was active, not the time it was "NBA." All of the broker's will have to certify, under penalty of perjury, any employment verification.
So you will probably have to wait two years after your license has shown as active under a real estate broker.
Best of luck!

No one should do any work for this company. I completed several broker price opinion assignments for this company. They don't pay for the services provided. They appear to be quite skilled in playing a game with the BBB system. They make false claims about their willingness to pay the outstanding debts, but then set a timeline that is multiple weeks out that they don't meet. Ironically they called me to inform me that they will start a payment plan to settle the debt. I was utterly insulted that such a call would even be made. If they were an ethical company they would overnight a check to clear the debt and apologize for the confusion. I viewed the call as a deliberate taunt by the company to poke me after I reactivated my BBB complaint with the Denver office. In my conversation with the local BBB they indicated that this company had hundreds of complaints and they were aware of their business practices. It is unfortunate that the local authorities allow an unethical company operate freely with in their community. The financial institutions that use this vendor should know how they operate and consider why they are continuing to do business with them. ... more

A Realtor cannot just "lower the price" to close the deal. If you can find a Realtor who will help you with a Rental, they will advise you on the going rental market rates and you will set the rent. Not all Realtors work in the Rental market, in fact its rather few compared to Sell and Purchase of Real Estate. ... more

Hi Jennifer,
Congratulations on getting your license. What you have to do now, is begin to interview Brokers at the Top Agencies in your area. Look from a Company that has real training for you and you will also need mentor ship for the first year at least. You should have some opportunities to work the Open Houses in your company so that you can have some practical experience working with buyers. Not all companies provide good quality training, so make sure you will get this wherever you decide to join. ... more

In California, "A salesperson may not accept compensation for licensed activity nor pay compensation for licensed activity except through the broker under whom he/she is at the time licensed." You should have handed over the commission check, which should have been made out to your broker, directly to your broker. Then your broker should have paid you. You should talk to your broker right away! If you are, in fact, the broker, you're on your own. You have all the usual recourses of any business that receives a bad check. ... more

Noooo..each state has their own tests and their own rules and licenses. You will have to study for the Washington State Real Estate license exam and pass.
