You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers.
Why should I join The K Company?
The K Company Realty has a high level of standards and practices. Our resources offered to our agents are better than what you would find at most large franchise and brand name real estate brokerages. Our firm offers the same lead generation and IDX technology that you will find at a Better Homes and Gardens, Keller Williams, ReMax and more. How do we pass all of the commission along to you and still offer this great opportunity? We are younger, hungrier and more agile than these old brick and mortar fixtures. We’re doing it the new way, The K Company Way! With over 850 Realtors statewide, new offices (Agent Smartspaces) opening we’ll soon be the brand name associated with reputable real estate transactions in Florida and across the country.
Are there any additional or hidden fees?
No. While most claim “no hidden fees” it is our experience that a simple phone call usually can ferret out “services” that reduce your commission. These could be in the form of broker assistance, technology fees, compliance fees, or incredibly high insurance rates. Another ploy is low monthly rates, but high transaction fees. These are marketing gimmicks that leads to a high turnover rates. We have over 87% retention rate with our agents and we think that speaks volumes.
Do I have to sign an annual contract to become a member?
No. You can cancel your membership at any time with 30 days written notice. You will receive an email confirming your cancellation and after your last payment you will be removed from our system.
What is required to become a member?
You must have a FL real estate license. You must also agree to our terms and conditions, the Independent Contractor Agreement and promise to follow the National Association of Realtors code of ethics and Practices.
Do I need to be a member of a Local Realtor Association?
No, but we strongly encourage it. If you decide you do not need the MLS, tools and resources we have an option for you.
Are there any quotas or sales requirements?
No, however our company is set up for production. We are here to help you meet your goals. We have multi-million dollar producers here at The K Co. Our peers and colleagues should strive for excellence.
What is the sign up process and how long does it take.
Click the “Join Online” button to take you to the registration page. There, you can review the independent contractor agreement. Once you complete the registration page you will automatically be emailed your copy of the signed ICA, the policy and procedures manual for your reference, an association form and W9. Return the filled out association form and W9 and we’ll activate your license. During normal business hours the entire process can take less than ten minutes.
How will I know all of the company procedures?
Our Policy and Procedures Manual is detailed and easy to read. You can always turn to that for \”how to\” do anything with us.
How and when do we receive our commissions?
Our company does payroll almost every day. We prefer to pay our agents by direct deposit. You can also take advantage of our “paid at closing” option on your sales. It’s easier when you use our in-house title company! Keep in mind; we only pay commissions on cleared funds. Title company checks and personal checks take time to clear.
Is E&O insurance included?
Does The K Co. do training for its agents?
Yes! If you are brand new we encourage you to take advantage of what we offer and everything your local Realtor Association offers with your membership. We have non-mandatory weekly and monthly meetings, events and webinars to keep our agents at the forefront of the market.
Am I allowed to manage properties?
As an agent of The K Company you are only to provide services of Real Estate permitted under licensing law. If you would like to form a separate entity or corporation to have a management business or any other business that is your choice.
