**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

offrs provides a lot of valuable data and services, but the success does depend on the agents ability to follow up and close leads

I agree with Scott below, also make sure that you call a few agents under those brokerages and ask what they like and dislike about their brokerages.

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 think what you might be looking for is a Transaction Coordinator. These are trained individuals who assist in completing paperwork associated with the Real Estate transaction. They would only work with a licensed individual so if you are licensed to transact Real Estate business, you can likely get some names from your Broker or another Brokerage office near you. ... more

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

I am a real estate agent in IL and want to know can I be a loan document signer? I am currently a notary public as well, but I've been told it would be a conflict of interest if I became a signer as well if I'm currently practicing in real estate. If I'm not involved in that particular transaction, why would it be a conflict? ... 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

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!
