Today I got my first commission check! I walked into Victor’s (free) class on September 4, 2018. I had tried to do the online schools for almost 2 years and it was not working out. I also had visited three other “schools” in different offices and they all wanted me to commit to working for their office for at least a year after getting my licence. I did not like that they wanted me to commit to working somewhere for a year and at a 50% split before they even would let me take one class.
So when Victor said that he would teach us and we were not obligated to work for his office after we graduated I thought I would give it a try. I am SO glad I did. Victor taught us more than he needed. I decided to take the classes on Saturday so 4 hours three Saturdays a month. Not only were the classes informative he gave us great insight on the testing process, how to fill out the application, and what to study. When I left Victor’s class I actually felt like I had the knowledge to be an agent…not just enough to pass a test.
It is not the cheapest school but it is the best for your money. Many (most) people fail the State Exam multi-able times because the school they went too did not prepare them for the test. These tests cost $60.00 every time you take them so it is very important that you get it right the first time.
So here was my time line if you are thinking about becoming an agent:
September 4th – I took my first class.
November 17th – I graduated.
December 3rd – I mailed my application to the state.
January 22nd – I got my test date
February 4 – I took my test and passed (you are an agent the day you pass if you have a sponsor and Victor agreed to be my sponsor).
March 27th – I closed my first Escrow
April 1st – I got my first commission check.
I know have two more houses in Escrow and I am the listing agent for a 3rd house. So in less than 7 months I went from my first class to getting my first check!
I tell you this not to brag but to let you know that you can do it with the right help and Victor is that help.
