I would use www.dexknows.com and use their reverse directory option. However with the proliferation of cell phones, many folks no longer have land lines and cell phones won't show up in a reverse search.
There are services you can pay who may or may not have those numbers. I've never paid for them, so I don't know.
Just be mindful of the Do Not Call Registry when calling sellers. Unless you have a prior relationship, you can't solicit homeowners via the telephone who are on the do not call list. (I know of agents who are aware of the rule, but choose to ignore it. Don't be one of them).... more
First, you need the 75 hour prelicense course. After passing, you'll take a state exam. This will teach you all the legal information. Find a broker who will hold your license. Then, find a mentor to show you the ins and outs of real estate. Find a marketing strategy that works for you to bring in clients. Then, represent them well and they will become lifelong clients and send you referrals.
It's a bit costly, paying for your classes, exams, start up materials, dues (if you become a realtor), monthly office fees, and marketing, but if your good... You'll make it all back quickly. Feel free to call me if you'd like more in-depth answers... I'd be happy to help:) Good luck!

I don't know if that's legit or not, but the best thing you can do is take the practice exams provided with your course as many of those are actual questions on the exam. If you are concerned there are also live crash courses to help you pass the test. As I recall the salesperson exam was pretty easy.... more
I ran an office for five years. Get a quote from the following. Remember your premium is going to be based on your volume so do not over estimate next years commissions. For instance if set your realistic goal. If it is 40 Million than it is 40 million. Also remember you can initially set it up at let's say 20 Million and let's say you hit that goal by June you can increase your policy at that time with no problem.... more
Drive what you like and don't worry about clients. As you mentioned, they usually don't ride with us these days anyway. You'll have some clients who hate your car, whatever it is, and others who will love it, whatever it is, so get what makes you happy.... more
There is no 'standard'. Commissions are all negotiable, so it really depends on what you and your agent work out. It can vary widely. I personally will offer a flat fee, or other options, that fit a particular situation. I hope that helps!

They are SLOW to pay until you start to complain. They still owe me money. We were completing 30-40 BPOs for them per month at 40.00 per BPO and 150.00 per commercial it adds up. Another colleague in my office was owed over 10K. I don't think they are in financial trouble in as much they just don't pay. I know they laid off quite a few people a short while ago. Specifically someone I used to work with a lot.... more
Visit, interview and watch. Visit some offices and meet with some brokers. See what they have to offer and see how you might fit in. Each office will lure you with a different package of benefits. Figure out what you need most, training, leads, commission splits, etc and try to get a sense of who provides the best package for you. Don't be lured with a high split, but minimal supervision or training as a new agent. You can't spend 100% of $0.00. On the other hand, if the office requires thousands of dollars in training expenses just to start and has you in a classroom all the time, you won't make any money either.
There is no Perfect place for everyone, find your best fit based on your needs.... more
