The process of changing the license over is a simple process on TREC online services, and you can start working in a matter of minutes. The transfer process with the board for Realtors may take a little more time, but that does not prevent you from working in the meantime. It can get complicated if you are trying to transfer transactions that are under your old broker. Some brokers could make this part of the transfer difficult.
Upon completion of the signup process, you will be given an invitation from TREC, CRM and Agent Portal access, a new agent packet, and a SpiritRE email address. This process takes very little time and if you have spoken with us directly beforehand, then we can time it so that it is seamless. With any transfer, it is recommended that you notify your current broker and have an understanding about clients and payment of outstanding transactions. However, it is not required, and it will not hinder the transfer of your license.
Your responsibilities, outside of what is defined by TREC and out policy and procedures, as an agent under the sponsorship program, is to generate leads and work your clients through the sales process. We handle all of the administrative duties so you can focus on generating your leads and closing deals!
Yes, we encourage our agents to build a team of agents if you have a surplus of leads. With the franchise program you can set a split with an agent that you bring on and manage.
There are some additional requirements which can be found on the franchise page.
Realtors are paid directly from the title company at closing via the CDA which is provided through the CRM.
For locators and residential leases, once payment has been received by the property management, the CRM will be updated and the payment will be sent out at the end of that pay period.
Payroll Check runs are at the end of pay period which end on the 10th and the 25th of each month. You have a choice of payment via check or direct deposit.
$199 will pay for setup and your first 3 months of sponsorship. After 3 months it is $99 per month. The transaction fee is $15 per transaction whether it is apartment locating or residential sales, or leasing.
Yes, your first 3 months are $199, but in the event you would like to pay for more, then you can pay for additional months in advance with a minimum of 3 month’s and receive $10 off per month. One year of sponsorship will be charged at a discount of $999.
If you are planning on conducting residential leasing or sales, yes, you will need to join the one of the boards that we are members of, and pay for your own membership fees and MLS fees. However, if you are an apartment locator and you are only conducting apartment locating transactions, no. The apartment locators are not required to join any board or pay association dues.
No, you are free to work as hard or as little as you choose. If you are only planning to do a couple transactions per year, then you may consider parking your license with us.
You would be an independent agent for Spirit Real Estate Group, LLC. Realtors can setup a DBA and we can register it with TREC at no cost to you. You would be still working as an agent for Spirit and would need to make sure all advertising meets the TREC rules listed.
As an apartment locator you must operate as a “Spirit” agent because all collections and compliance services are for the brokerage and are payable only to the brokerage. We can make the commission checks payable to the DBA, but you would be working as a Spirit agent.
We handle all of the invoicing and collections of outstanding commissions on apartment locating and residential leasing. The responsibility of the agent goes to confirming the lease with the property and providing a signed lease verification, or ABB. Afterwards, our accounts receivable will follow up with the property management until payment is received.
For apartment leases it is quite common to have an incentive.
Spirit will pay out in the form of a check or Zelle for any rebates that have been promised to the client as long as the rebate form has been completed and payment was received from the property.
Other incentives like a free move, or packing services, etc… are not facilitated by Spirit and would need to be handled and paid for by the agent.
Yes, you will be given the broker’s cell number upon sign-up and if he doesn’t answer he will contact you back within 24 hours. Along with the training materials available in the Agent Portal you will have available to you 1 on 1 training, mentorship, and oversight so if you are trying out a new area of real estate like apartment locating or residential sales, we are reachable so you can rest assure that you are on the right path.
The broker has no experience in commercial real estate, so we are not able to provide the necessary oversight that is needed to be TREC compliant. With that said there nothing preventing you from receiving a referral from another broker for referring the client to a commercial broker.
Property management sponsorship services are not available.

A traditional brokerage has broker splits that range from 10% to 60 or 70%. That is a big chunk of the commission that you earn on a transaction that you provide. There are broker solutions available for agents who want to keep ALL of the commission. Is there a catch?… Yes A traditional brokerage normally has a lot of overhead costs and will often provide extensive training and even leads in some cases; whereas, a
