ZipRealty careers:  How to become a succesful Realtor and increase your realtors salary.

 Zip Realty careers:  How to become a successful Realtor and increase your realtors salary were my questions when I first heard of the new company that I now work for.  (If you decide to interview to join the company, please mention my name, I get credit $$ for this)
After the market crashed and there were no longer loans for first time home buyers with poor credit, ( my
ZipRealty sign - Future of Real Estateniche ) I was put out of business.  I had work hard for two years to create a steady flow of deals, and after loosing about 4 deals almost at the closing table, I was in despair.  It was so bad that I stopped working all together.  I didn't know what to do.  In the meantime, I learned how to blog, about SEO, social media and all the new things that the Internet offers.  But, doing all these takes time, and I needed money yesterday.  I read someone's blog about ZipRealty and I was hooked.  I called and emailed the company and three days later after my first interview I had signed with ZipRealty.
ZipRealty careers:  How to become a successful Realtor and increase your Realtors salary At my old company the commission split was high, and I really liked the company, but 100%  of 0 = 0.
Yes, I could have waited until my Internet efforts produced results, but by then I might be out of business altogether.   Us Realtors know that our profession is an expensive one.  Between MLS and Realtor Fee's you better be prepared to plan for 6 months of income plus expenses including advertising before you earn a penny.
I have been with ZipRealty since the end of March, and I started receiving leads after my training on April 2nd.   Since I started with ZipRealty, I've taken care of numerous personal business transactions and have been very busy and unable to give 100% effort but am now finally totally devoted to my platform "full force".
 Others that came after me have already had at least one closing, and some  a couple more.  Some of these are brand new agents.
I have written  ZipRealty careers:  How to become a successful Realtor and increase your Realtors salary  to answer the real question you may have.  Am I making money?  Yes.  I have my first closing in the middle of July in the mid 300's.  In August, I am expecting two out of town buyers that want to retire in the area.  Both these leads are over the $300,000's. I love the clients that I am getting, as they are highly educated in real estate because they have done their research while looking for homes
Leads + Cash = MoneyLeads, leads and more leads.  I am guaranteed a minimum of 40 leads per month as long as I contact them, and I do the follow up that they have trained me to do.  These are my results so far:

- 144 Total leads on my platform.    
- 136 Left....leads that I am working in one way or another
- 2 Active clients that I am showing homes to
- 1 listing
- 1 buyer under contract
- 19 people that have responded or that I am in contact with to buy within the next year
- 7 people who I have been able to contact, show an interest, but will not buy any time soon.
- 2 sellers considering what to do
- 3 People who will buy if the right deal comes across.

I do what I have been taught by Zip, as they have their own way of training and doing things.   I still have some of my old habits.  I have some other none real estate projects, children and other things to do.  This is the result of doing the minimum that I have been asked to do.  
(If you decide to interview to join the company, please mention my name, I get credit $$ for this) I will cover training, the broker, office culture and more  in  blogs to follow.

Jesse,

The initial training is one week for 4 hours in the morning.  That is just to learn how to use the system, but every week there is training for different subjects.  The training is continuous and live over the internet.  After that you can  acces most of it stored in the system.

Call me if you have more questions.   Tere
