Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Benchmark Realtors?
Benchmark Realtors is ushering in the new generation of Real Estate brokerages with a 100% Virtual Model, mixed with the full service benefits of a traditional brokerage. Some agents pay hundreds of dollars per month to their broker, to cover the expenses of an oversized brokerage, and in return get a small desk in a bullpin. We believe that as long as our agents have a phone, access to a computer, and a printer, they can be their own office. You pay us $450.00, and we provide valuable coaching, resources, and leads. It's as simple as that!
Does Benchmark Give Agents Leads?
We are constantly working on improving our offerings to our agents. At this time, we utilize some of the finest lead generating programs available - including RealtorNotebook, SCOREBOARD, and a plethora of online resources. Our leads are distributed in a cycle pattern, by geographical area. Of course, while we generate leads, we also equip our agents with the training and tools they need to generate their own leads!

WE NEVER CHARGE EXTRA FOR LEADS. PERIOD.
What Association Does Benchmark Belong To?
We are members of the Citrus Valley Association of Realtors [http://www.CVAR.net], and the High Desert Association of Realtors [HDAOR/VVAR]. Contact us if you need to join another MLS, and we will make arrangements.


Currently, we are working with most associations that cover Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside and San Diego Counties.
What Type of Recruiting Benefits Do You Offer?
Benchmark firmly believes that if someone loves what they're doing, they'll want to recommend it to others. We strive constantly to make our environment as welcoming and helpful as possible. As a token of appreciation to our agents, we offer a cash equivalent of $100 per closed file, in the form of transaction coordinator credits. That means that once an agent you've recruited closes a transaction, you receive one free transaction coordinator file. Alternatively, you can choose to accept a $75 referral fee per closed transaction.

Please Note: You must be a licensed real estate agent, and under the employment of Benchmark Realtors, to be eligible to collect recruiting benefits.
How Do I Get Paid?
Your commission check will be paid out to you directly from escrow. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to bring your check to any Benchmark office, and get paid from the broker.

Please Note: In the unlikely event that an escrow company has difficulties processing your check to be paid directly to you, we will have the escrow company overnight the check to us, and we will cut your check either same day, or personally hand-deliver it the next calendar day.
What About Training?

We don't believe in a 'one size fits all' training program. Our coaching and training programs are designed on a one-on-one basis, and are delivered in convenient training sessions at your schedule; not ours. Whether its by phone, over a cup of coffee, or at our office, we dedicate as much time as you need to ensure that you're up to date on the latest technology, laws, and sales training.

 

Additionally, we don't have 'mandatory meetings'. Important information about listings, company procedures, or sudden changes will be delivered via phone call and/or email. Our concept is that business is not generated in a board room, but rather in the field.
