May I negotiate my commission with my clients?

Yes. We encourage our agents to set their own commission rates with their clients. Today’s real estate environment can be very competitive and our agents need the ability to be flexible.

How am I paid for commissions earned?

Commissions Payment Schedule

Once a commission payment is received, we enter into our weekly commission run. We pay out every Friday for wires received by that previous Wednesday and for checks received by the previous Friday – as checks take some time to clear. The office must have all paperwork for the file, including the Commission Form in order for payment to be issued.

Please note that using our in-house title company, Dream Home Title, allows you to get paid on the same day, in addition to receiving top quality service from our title agent Kim Smith. Kim can be reached at 954-351-2242 or Kim@DreamHomeTitle.com if you have any questions.

Commission Disbursement

On the Friday of payment, checks will be available in the office at 12 pm, or we can mail the check to your address. Another option would be to deposit the funds into your bank account via ACH. Funds are sent on Thursday so they can be available in your account on Friday (most major banks). You will need to provide your Bank Name, Exact name on the account, Account Number, and Routing number in order to get set up.

Are there any extra fees, like E&O or franchise fees?

No. No hidden fees.

Are my leads protected if I enter them into Elevate's lead system?

Yes. Any lead or client you enter into the lead system belongs to you and that information will never be shared with any other agent. Even if you choose to leave Elevate, you will be able to take your database with you.

 

What kind of marketing material do you provide?

We provide a wide array of effective and successful Done-For-You Marketing materials. You can find business cards, postcards, flyers, listing and buyer presentations, folders and more in our online Agent Portal. If there is any kind of marketing material missing that you would like to use, our marketing experts will be happy to look at it and tweak it for you to ensure success. It’s our goal to support your marketing efforts with the best material and resources available.

Where do I get yard signs with the Elevate Logo?

We provide our agents with the ability to download our sign templates to provide to any sign company of your choice.

Do you have physical locations?

We do maintain offices in markets that require ‘bricks and mortar’. Some of our agents lease their own office spaces but the vast majority of our agents work from home. This is how we keep our overhead costs low and focus on investing on other things such as marketing that yield a higher return on investment.

Where do I meet my clients?

How many clients actually want to drive out to a real estate office to meet? It’s usually out of their way and costs them time and gas money. In today’s fast-paced environment, it’s nice to be able to meet clients near their area of search. Many of our agents meet their clients at a local coffee shop with free WIFI Internet access (e.g., Starbucks and Einstein Bagels). If a quiet, professional office is needed, almost all title companies and mortgage companies will let you use a spare office or conference room to meet your client.

Are company meetings required?

No. We hate meetings just as much as you do. We do host training and social events to build community. If we need to share anything with you then we will email you the information, post it on our Mastermind’s group pages, and hold online webinars.

Can I work part-time?

Elevate focuses on full-time agents only.

Is Elevate a HUD Certified brokerage?

The short answer is, Yes. The long answer is, Yes we are.
