The Showing Partner is a licensed real estate agent who is new in the business and works directly in support of one Senior Buyer Agent in the Mercy Lugo-Struthers Team at Casals, Realtors. This is a contractor full-time salaried position plus closing bonus. The goal is to have the Showing Partner learn the real estate business from an experienced agent, thus getting the equivalent of a “master in real estate.”
They will participate in 36+ transactions in one year (12 months), which typically takes a Buyer Agent in our market 3-4 years to achieve. The Buyer's Agent is responsible for ensuring that the Showing Partner is trained on all aspects. The Showing Agent must commit to a minimum term of 1 year which gives them the time to experience a complete market cycle and gives their Buyer's Agent enough time to benefit once they are fully trained. There will be a 3-month trial period.
In the beginning, a Showing Partner really is just an extension of the Buyer's Agent allowing them to be in two places at once and show twice as many clients, primarily in Prince William, Stafford and Fredericksburg counties. The Senior Agent must always meet clients for the first time with the Showing Partner and explain to the client that we work as a team (i.e. not competing with one another), and that our goal as a team is to be as responsive and flexible to their needs and their schedule as possible. We aspire to show clients a home within 60 minutes of their request whenever possible.
Over time the Showing Partner is trained on database follow up, scheduling showings, touring clients (not just opening doors but pointing out good/bad aspects of each home), drafting offers (always reviewed by the Buyer's Agent), preparing CMA's to use in making offers, attending and managing property inspections, preparing inspection amendments (always reviewed by the Buyer's Agent), working with the TC, final walk throughs, etc.
Must support Senior Buyer Agent to produce at double our standard for 3 consecutive months. Our standard is 2 deals per month, so the Showing Agent will join forces with the Senior Buyer Agent to produce 3-4 deals per month for 3 months. Program will be evaluated at the end of the 3 months.
