Watch this 12 minute video and listen to the podcasts below. You’ll know exactly why we are a much better affiliation choice than anyone else.
You need not make the awkward call to your current broker to tell him/her that you have decided to move on to another brokerage. Today, everything is automated online. Once you’ve completed the steps below, your broker will receive an email from DLLR that you have transferred your license over to us. It’s that simple.
1. Select a fee plan and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Our most popular fee plan is where the agent pays a $50 monthly affiliation fee, $50 agent paid sales transaction fee on sales, rentals, referrals, $395 client paid transaction fee on sales only, 100% commissions to the agent.
- If you don’t want to pay $50 a month, you may choose our 70/30 split plan with all other items remaining the same.
- E&O insurance is $495 a year.
After you’ve contacted us, we conduct a brief telephone interview with you. Following that, you’re merely a few steps away from making the official switch over to our firm.
