price, flexibility, quality of questions.
As the technology and laws are changing, one needs to learn the latest scope. Pass the test is the objective.

The worst I've dealt with in my career. I don't understand how they can have financial problems when they rip off the agent by not paying them yet charge and are paid by those that they call clients. ... more

You should have negotiated your fees in your contract before you agreed to work for them. It will be hard to re negotiate after a sale

UpNest answered:
UpNest is an excellent platform for leads. Several home buyers and sellers sign up to www.UpNest.com daily because it's free. UpNest then matches the prospects with realtors within their database. The website has generated millions of dollars in sales. I would give it a shot! ... more

**More Details**

I am the home stager. I have a contract with the Seller that it is required i receive a 10 days notice to remove my staging inventory. I was notified that the home was under contract on March 27 (two days ago), and notified this morning that the closing was bumped up surprisingly fast (not sure how since typical is 30-45 days escrow, though this must've been a crazy cash offer of the sort!) However, the buyer is taking possession of the home this Friday, March 3rd after it funds and records. MY contract with the seller states 10 days to allow me to remove furniture due to my booked schedule and my movers booked schedule. The new homeowners are now saying that if my furniture is not removed on Friday, they will charge me a daily rate of an absurd amount for the time my furniture is still in the home. At this time the earliest I could remove furniture would be next Tuesday, March 7th. Still within my 10 days notice (March 9th) if I count February 27th being my starting notice. I have a contract with the seller. Isn't it the sellers responsibility AND the realtors responsibility to know and acknowledge be signed contract? How would the closing and funding override my signed contract that was still standing? I'm a service provider and I understand that if these items/contracts are terminated (via my 10 day rider) that the home is not able to transfer to the new buyers, since there is technically a standing contract with the homeowner having possession. And that my possessions do not transfer as ownership to the new homeowners. Nor shall they alter or touch my inventory due to my contract with the homeowner, that shouldn't have been overriden anyways. Please advise. ... more

Hi,

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

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

Rich Reed answered:
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!
