How am I paid for commissions earned?
Commissions Payment Schedule
Once a commission payment is received, we enter into our weekly commission run. We payout 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.
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 hidden fees! No Franchise Fees. No desk fees. No Annual fees. NO additional 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?
You can meet your clients at the office, at their home, or even a Starbucks or a Dunkin Doughnuts near their home. It’s up to you. We don’t change a desk fee at Elevate, and you can use our beautiful office anytime you need.
Are company meetings required?
No. We hate meetings just as much as you do. We do host training and social events to build community, to share and grow together. But most of our training is done online via Zoom, Facebook Live or Calls. This makes it a lot more convenient for everyone to attend. We also have a Facebook Group here at Elevate, where we share ideas, ask questions, and communicate with you.
