What to expect as a REALTOR®?
We give REALTORS the online tools, supportive upper management, advertising and ongoing education to grow a successful long lasting business. Our successful concept has self propelled our real estate business. Listing property is generally less time consuming then being a buyer’s agent. There is also the opportunity to make much more commission through intermediary status, then you would make as a buyer’s agent, which is representing both sides of the real estate transaction.() Buyer agent representation is very rewarding but at times seems that the ‘do it yourself’ attitude in the modern buyer has made buyer representation a little less consistent. We focus on motivated sellers because if you need to sell, well you need to sell. We offer an efficient service that sellers are attracted to. Most real estate companies will take you if you have a license and good intentions, they will offer training and also charge you a lot through commissions for doing so. We don’t care what the other guys are doing. We have an effective system, with only a few agent spots available in certain area markets. Our goal is to have you with us long term, and grow our business together through combined success. If we do not believe you will be successful, we will not hire you. Our success is largely based on our agent’s success, our advertising method,s and clients looking for great services at a discounted cost.
“What are the pros & cons of having a REALTOR®’s career?
Hired agents will RECEIVE A REAL ESTATE WEBSITE for individual use, which will include instructions and training on how to operate your website. Here is the list of domain names that are currently available. The website will be optimized to show up on search engines when people search you, or properties you are selling.
There will be weekly sale’s meetings Sunday evenings from 4pm- 6pm. Preferably you make it every Sunday, but 2 out of 4 will be required. Each week at the meeting you will receive instructions on how to further your career and get legal and ethical updates. During the Sunday meetings you will have time to ask questions, knowledge sharing, and marketing/advertising tips. You will also be able to sign up for phone duties (office phone is forwarded to your cell). We give you the knowledge to grow your business, all you have to do is apply what you are learning to your daily activities.
The second real estate deal you close with us, you will receive a free top of the line, Bluetooth, from Jawbone. Retails at 12o.00$ and a Certificate of achievement from us.
5th real estate deal closed you receive a free iPad 2 16GB with Wi-Fi – White or Black, retails over 500.00$
(We expect REALTORS to keep up with modern technology)
Chose one of our Compensation Plans
How you get paid: For all sales: You will fill out a 1 page, Disbursement Authorization form (DA) and send to Original Discount llc., REALTOR®. The DA form is then approved by us, and sent to the title company or attorney that is closing the deal, a day or two before the deal is ready to close. The real estate transaction is considered done when all signatures have been received, and the title company and Lenders have funded. You will then be paid directly from the title company, with a check written out to your name or dba. See our commission fee schedule and initial costs when joining us. For all leases: we will be cutting you the check.
** We recommend at least 30% of your net commission, should be put in your personal savings account for taxes and/or used to advertise your real estate business. This idea is a must for keeping your future business growing. We have simple and efficient advertising plans you may jump on board with us, or you may pursue your own advertising methods which will need to be approved by us before publicized. If you are inexperienced with marketing we highly recommend you let us help you with the right choices. Either way, advertising and saving should be done, successful sales is only accomplished through good work habits, and consistent business practices.
Average Commissions we charge sellers for the listing agent side of the commission is around 1.5%, because we charge 1% to 2% for the selling side and offer 2.5% – 3% to buyer’s agents. All together including sales where the buyer is not using a real estate agent, I would say the average commission earned on a deal is 1.8%-2%. You can do the math from here.
