Typically 3 to 24 hours. I authorize escrow to disburse commissions, referral fees, etc. So at COE everybody can pick up a check or have one couriered, as soon as they have them ready. If it's not too late in the day it's usually just a hour or two. If it's Friday afternoon it could be Monday. A lot of out-of-town companies that we work with will wire commissions.

Improving Conditions

Our checks get cut by escrow (they cut what ever number of check is necessary) so when we have a closing the checks get delivered to the office and are ready for pick up within minutes. There is one catch, all of the paperwork needs to be in before agents pick up their checks. So, if you handle your paperwork, your check is immediate. If not, it will be ready when the paperwork is in.

Paul,

For commissions on leases, the listing broker had all the monies in the escrow account.  When all docs were signed, I wrote checks to all parties.  In some cases, we as the listing broker would receive a check or a wire transfer.  As soon as the bank gave us the clear signal, I wrote the checks and notified agents to pick up.    As far as escrows, it was a day turn around.  Some of the big commercial firms liked playing the float.  We did not put up with that, and would show up at their offices with palms outstretched.  LOL A
