DO I PAY IN EVERY MONTH EVEN IF I'M NOT BUSY?
Yes our monthly fee is for hanging your license within our brokerage. Typical caps within other companies are a % of each transaction but if you look at your year end payments to them we challenge you to find a good broker that will charge less than $7,200 per year. Our goal is to have a set payment plan in place so we can count on it and then it gives us the ability to offer lower rates to our agents.
HOW DO THE OPTIONAL UPGRADES WORK?
On the commissions page you'll notice all of the optional upgrades marked out as a price per month. We will review all of these in greater depth when you on board and that additional expense will be added to your monthly commissions plan. For example there is a single agent ($600) who wants to have Leadership coaching ($200) and also a private website & CRM system ($50). Their total monthly expense is $950 or $11,400 yearly for coaching, cap rate and a private website.
IS BOS REALTY GROUP A LOCAL OR NATIONAL AGENCY?
As of right now we are localized to the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. We are however actively looking for Broker / Partners within other states to start expanding our network and services.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO ONBOARD?
We can get your license transferred to Bos Realty Group within 5 Business Days and then once you are within our system you are free to operate as normal. Prelim marketing materials can take an additional 1-2 weeks to arrive and depending on if training is needed or not.
WHO DOES THE ON-BOARDING PROCESS?

After meeting with Curtis you'll then meet with our managing Broker to complete the required paperwork and officially become a "Bos".
WILL I LOSE ANY TRANSACTIONS WHEN I SWITCH BROKERS?
Every broker is different and there is a possibly your existing broker will want to hold your current transaction hostage for you wanting to leave. We understand this and will do everything we can to help create a new environment that can offset some of those damages. We will discuss this as a case by case, agent by agent scenario and will do what we can to help the transition go as smooth as possible.
WHO WILL BE MY ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER?
Curtis Nelson, Owner of Bos Realty Group handles all accountability partnerships. His role is 100% geared towards agent recruitment, retention and training.
WHAT KIND OF MARKETING MATERIALS DO I GET WHEN I JOIN A PROGRAM?

Through his programs we have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and resources that we can share with our team. This will range from printed materials, digital files, on demand videos as well as live webinars.
CAN I PAY EVERYTHING ON A CREDIT CARD?
Yes absolutely. You can pay on a credit, card, debit card, wire transfer, auto withdrawal, cash or check. We try to make it as easy as possible on you and complete the months billings on the 25th of each month with a due day of the 5th of the following month.
ARE THERE ANY START UP OR HIDDEN FEES?
There are no hidden fees as what you see is what you get. We do charge a one time start up fee of $100 for our time and consideration with getting your license transferred to Bos Realty Group.
