Welcome to Mont Sky Real Estate! Getting started as a new real estate agent in NYC will be so much easier if you diligently read through all of our training materials and master the content.
Even though Mont Sky Real Estate is unique in allowing new agents to work on exclusive sale listings and buyer clients directly with management or senior agents on the team, it is important to realize that in order to make a full time living in real estate you must ultimately source your own clients.
You should view the ability to work together on our customers and referrals as a great opportunity to get your feet wet and learn the business. However, the end goal should be for you to build your network and learn how to convert off market and FSBO sellers, maximize conversions on buyer leads and purchase leads online.
Complete mandatory sexual harassment training
All Mont Sky agents are required to take New York City’s mandatory online Sexual Harassment Training Course as part of NYC’s Stop Sexual Harassment Act. The course is available here. Upon completion, please email us your certificate of completion.
In addition, please review the Anti-Sexual Harassment Factsheet which is available at the links below:
Associate your license with Mont Sky Real Estate LLC
Once you’re finished with the above, we’ll need to make sure you’re licensed with us. Please log on to eAccessNY several days after you’ve taken your state exam to see whether if you’ve passed. If you have, congrats! Please apply for a real estate salesperson’s license directly on eAccessNY. You’ll need to submit the license number for Mont Sky Real Estate LLC which is 10491206002. Please let us know after you’ve done this so we can “Authorize Initial Salesperson License” online from our eAccessNY account.
Are you changing brokerages?
Please email us your license number so we can associate you in the NY DOS database after you’ve disassociated from your current brokerage. It may take up to 48 hours for you to become fully disassociated from your former brokerage before we can associate you in eAccessNY.
Since NY DOS charges a $20 fee to associate your license with us which we’ll have to pay on your behalf, we ask that you reimburse us before we bring you onboard. You can do so here.
Sign an independent contractor agreement
If you haven’t already done so, please review our agent plans and e-sign either our 75% commission split or our 100% commission split independent contractor agreement. Please take care of this as soon as possible as this establishes the relationship between you, the independent contractor, and Mont Sky Real Estate LLC.
Please note that the commission split referred to in the agreement is for your own independently sourced and executed deals. The split percentage is quite favorable to you versus the industry norm of allowing new agents to keep 30-50% or less of their own commissions.
You’ll also note that we are as transparent as possible when it comes to fees. There are no hidden fees or charges such as start-up fees, software fees, insurance fees, transaction fees or technology fees.
Unlike other firms that offer higher commission splits, our business model is not predicated on nickel and diming our agents with secret charges. Mont Sky generates a lot of leads and referrals organically, and our success is based on your success in closing our deals and your own.
Take care of your first monthly dues
Please take care of your first month’s dues as the next step. Agents on our 75% split plan can do so here. Agents on our 100% split plan can do so here. New invoices will be due every 30 days. Please save your credit card number and remember to enable recurring monthly payments going forward.
Because of the significant time and monetary investment we are putting into you, we will need to see commitment from your end as well. Please take care of this before we proceed further.
Mont Sky Real Estate runs a paperless operation. Everything we do from document signing, scanning and sharing to team messaging is online and mobile friendly. To get started, please download and install our team’s secure messaging application called Telegram.
You should download this both on your smartphone as well as your desktop or laptop computer. Management will have a private chat room with each agent and you will also be invited to join a group chat room with all of our agents.
This is the fastest and most efficient way to reach us should you have an urgent question during regular business hours.
Next, please set up your corporate email account per the email instructions you’ve been sent. You can easily access your work email from any internet browser via our webmail portal. However, we recommend also setting up your corporate email on your smartphone either via our email app or by integrating your account into your device’s native email functionality.
Sign up for a Cribfox account
Sign up for a Cribfox account using your corporate email address and use it to easily send and store disclosure and other common forms with just a few clicks.
Cribfox’s suite of software, designed specifically for real estate agents, is offered free to our team members, forever.
