If an agent really wants to make a great career as an agent they have to understand the franchise real estate offices top agents do 99% of the deals so new agents see this so this is what attracts agents to join. When they finally join they are paying 100-150 a month in fees. When they close their 1st deal after 15 months (1500+ ) they get their 70% of the 10,000 but still have to pay out broker, office, franchise, tc, and file fees. Comes to about 20%. Agent will net a50/50 % split then pay their 150 office desk fee again.
I offer a 90/10 split I pay EO and buy cards and 2signs. We brand the agent and the colors they want not my brokerage name. This is about making agents true business owners using their name since they are the one who brings in the business.

You shouldn't pay anything to Zillow. It's a free service and listings should appear here through your MLS's IDX feed.

Just got my license today. Dropped off the application July 26th and finally received it today Sept 7, so to answer my own question, the license process can take about 1-2 months.

Karen Peyton answered:
You really need to get the tools necessary to conduct business. As far as I can see, there isn't any way around it.

Lock-boxes and their card keys transmit showing data back to the agents and brokers who own them. It is the way we know "who" was in the house and "when" they arrived and left, at a very minimum.

The forms you need to use are written by your state. Using something other, or not the most recent copy puts you and your client in jeopardy. (Your employing broker can tell you why).

The very basic of home information is found on sites such as these - but too, too, often it's inaccurate. No...not inaccurate....more like WRONG! Certainly not enough and too thin on credibility to represent a client in a transaction or contact an owner as necessary.

Have you found an employing broker? You cannot work without one!

Some brokers will help agents get started. That's the kind you need...along with a mentor!

Good luck!

Ron Butcher answered:
I constantly get young people asking me questions about entering the real estate field.

My first piece of advice: call the GLVAR (Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors) and get the rundown of costs involved from the moment you walk into real estate school until you're a "realtor" and are able to assist buyers or sellers.

Many folks think they can pass a test and begin selling houses.

Even after you have become a realtor, there are constant ongoing costs in order
to stay in the profession. (dues, key fees and maintenance, signs, lockboxes, office
fees, gas, lunches, broker fees, etc. etc.)

You must have the bankroll for these costs BEFORE you decide to get into real estate,
otherwise, you'll find it an extremely expensive lesson.

After much research and investigation, at this time, it's not quite for us.

Most realtors in this blog have not used it and/or are not members and are simply advertising their services instead of answering questions directly with detailed answers.

Boost is good in so many ways and can be a real boost to your business. However, at this time, it's not quite for us.Concerns: Nervous that they give little to no info on theirs site; contact info is mostly requesting your info so they can sell. All other sites list pricing and packages. They do not.. Concerned about the after-purchase; No detailed info on how it actually works. I hope this helps.

MCM_STL answered:
Part-time agents are a joke. It's more than a full-time job. You should expect to work a standard length day (9-5) plus have evening and weekend meetings with your clients. You have to work around their availability, not the other way around.

You will never be able to develop a solid client base and the kind of expertise you need to succeed working in this industry part-time. No one hands you business. You have to find it yourself which takes a boatload of effort. Almost anyone can get a license. You have to do the legwork to convince people why they should choose you over the thousands of other agents in your market.

If you still think you want to do this, reach out to some successful local agents and ask if they're willing to do a 1:1 with you to talk about what it really takes to do this. If noting else, it's great practice at making cold calls and handling potential rejections.

Seansmith answered:
Beware of the positive reviews as i believe them to be fake

After participating in two other coaching programs which were very successful, i decided that i needed a change. Those two companies will remain anonymous for the integrity of this review. I interviewed a few companies including Mike Ferry and ultimately decided on Mike Ferry.

Before you read the rest of this post, you should know that i am not a rookie nor am i a low producer. I am one of the top in my company and take personal and business development very seriously.

The initial intake call was great, i was hyped up and ready to go. The first 4 months was great, we were making real progress. After about 6 months the content became stale and i was not receiving value for the $1,000 a month that i was paying for.

After 6 months, my initial coach out of nowhere suggested that i switch to another coach who specialized in mortgage agent coaching because this was as far as she could take me. Even though when we first spoke i told her that i only wanted to work with her. The last thing you want to do is tell someone who is trying to get rid of you to keep you on as a client.. how awkward is that???

My new coach was a very very nice person, but a terrible coach for my style. She repeated things my first coach and i had worked on months ago and her pace of coaching was completely different and the content was a joke. At this point i had spent a few months going through the motions and not getting any value.

All together, i would not recommend this company because you must fulfil a 12 month contract, even if they do not deliver what they promise. After threatening to post on social media about my experience i received a letter from their lawyer telling me that there would be legal repercussions for voicing my opinion online. LOL!

I told them to bill my credit card for the remaining $4,000 and good luck with suing me for writing a review about their company.
