What is expected of you as an AR agents.
Represent Afton Realty and your clients fairly, professionally and with respect.
Upload all transaction documents required by Commerce or DSPS (in WI). Many of these will happen automatically if you are using instanet.
Contributing time or feedback to the website and other online activities.
As a broker, my work is to build the AR brand, keep up with the industry and support agents. You likely work more and more from your home and phone. Direction, motivation, and industry news is coming more from online communication than at the office. Water cooler conversations are being replaced with online forums and social networking.
For these reasons and more, it may be time to cut your overhead and align with an independent without the large brokerage fees, desk fees and splits.
Interested in representing business buyers or sellers? AR has an excellent agent that you may partner with on such transactions. Interested in charging by the hour? I am open to trying new things and welcome agents to try likewise.
Give it a thought and call me for coffee sometime
