FAQs About Quicksilver Real Estate Careers in Tampa Bay
Q: What does it cost to join Quicksilver Real Estate?
A: There is no activation or other up-front fee, although you will need to pay the Board/MLS fees when you choose to join.
Q: How soon can I start selling?
A: Right away! Upon completing the necessary forms, your license will be activated within 24 business hours.
Q: Do I need to join the GTAR board immediately?
Q: I'm a member of another Florida Realtor board. Do I have to give up my membership and join GTAR?
A: It depends. Over the past 10 years, Quicksilver Real Estate Group has sold over $100 million in real estate throughout the State of Florida. Although our niche is Tampa Bay real estate, we cover the entire State.
Q: Do you offer any comprehensive training classes for newbies?
A: No, but you can take classes for free when you join the Board. Our staff and broker will be available to answer your questions and provide you with support. If you need a brokerage that provides formal classes and heavy training, we may not be the right fit at this stage of your career.
Q: Do you offer leads?
A: While we do offer some leads on a rotation basis, you are expected to either bring with you a book of business, or work hard to develop one. There are no free rides, anywhere -- especially at a 100% commission company. Farming, print and online media, and working your sphere of influence are all required steps for a new agent to "make his bones" in this industry.
Q: What other fees do you charge?
A: We are a straight-up company -- it's $350 per transaction with no monthly fees. If you close no deals, you don't pay us anything.
Q: What happens to my listings if I leave Quicksilver?
A: You can take them with you with no strings attached. There is a form that we sign.
Q: Can I bring my listings from my current broker?
A: That will depend upon your company policy. Some brokerages will allow you to freely leave with no problem. Other brokers will want some sort of referral fee on the listings that they allow you to take, which is fair considering that you have used their resources in advertising them. Remember, the listings are legally the property of the broker.
Q: Can I bring my whole Team over? What about my friends?
A: As long as they are licensed real estate agents in Florida, we would happily consider them.
Q: I'm also an investor. Can I earn commissions if I'm buying for my own real estate portfolio?
A: Yes, of course, as long as you make sure to follow the proper legal and ethical rules...especially disclosing your role to all parties involved in the transaction. Many of our agents chose Quicksilver Real Estate for this goal, so as to not "leave money on the table."
Q: I went to a really cool seminar and I want to start real estate investing in Tampa. There's all of these land trust forms, and quit claim deeds. I want to focus on getting people in foreclosure to basically give the house to me for no money so that I can rent it out. Will you help me with this business model?
A: No way! We are owned by a reputable real estate attorney, and we do not allow our real estate agents to get involved in any transactions that are questionable -- legally or ethically.
Q: Do I have to join the local Board and pay dues?
A: While this is certainly a Frequently Asked Question, my lawyerly response is "it depends." It is important to know that you can only access the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) if you are a dues-paying Realtor. That means that in order to enjoy the full benefits of a real estate career, you will want to join the Board. We are a member of GTAR which is the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors. You are not required to join right away, and if you don't want to join at all, we have other options which will enable you to keep your license active.
Q: Do I have to give notice to my current broker if I want to switch my license to Quicksilver?
A: You may be required to give a certain amount of notice under the terms of your current broker's independent contractor agreement. If not, it's still a professional courtesy for you to do so. Remember, your existing deals belong to your broker, and you may need him to release them to you.
Q: This sounds great, but I have a few other questions...
A: Call Samantha Dammer, Broker/Owner directly at 813/288-0303.
“You Might Need To Switch Real Estate Companies If…”
You are at the copier preparing a listing presentation, and you notice your broker’s resume sitting there with a career objective “to obtain a challenging position in the telecommunications industry.”
Right after that, the copier gets repossessed.
Your broker forces you to use a certain mortgage and/or title company, which is replaced each month because the preferred mortgage and/or title company goes out of business.
You need an Act of Congress to take a deal that’s “outside of the box” such as a short sale, commercial lease or rental listing.
The monthly desk fees and internet fees (which some might call “rent”) are more than your commission checks.
The last time your broker paid for any print advertising for your listings was in 2005, or earlier!
You’re one of the only full-time agents left in the office so you get most of the office leads…and you’re STILL not busy!
Most of the “sales meetings” seem to center on the latest non-real estate MLM or network marketing scam.
Your current company is “scaling back” on certain “luxury items” such as paper, phones, toilet paper and the office space.
You’re on Craigslist looking for a new job. That means you might be missing something at your current real estate company, doesn’t it? What do you think that is?

How A Florida Real Estate Agent Can Start Working In A Brokerage Firm
The real estate sector is a challenging field to be in, but it is also one of the best ways of making a living. After getting your license, you still have a lot of work to do before you can start selling or buying any houses. The main thing you need to do is to look for a real estate brokerage firm in Florida when you can start working. The kind of brokerage firm that you choose will depend on your goals and requirements. While it can be hard to find the most fitting broker that meets your requirements, it is critical that you do so.
Importance of working under a brokerage firm
According to Florida state laws, licensed real estate agents need to first work with a brokerage firm before moving on to either a different company or setting up their own company. Buying a home is among the biggest purchases that people make in their lifetime and real estate agents must take it quite seriously. The broker that you work under shoulders this responsibility and allows you to gain important experience.
Choose experienced and ethical brokers
It is advisable to work with Florida brokers that are effective at selling houses. When you have a brokerage firm selling a large number of houses, they will likely be recognized by the surrounding community. Sellers and buyers of homes usually like ensuring that the company or agent they are dealing with is proficient at their job. Even if you are a beginner with no experience in selling houses, the company you work for can go a long way in helping buyers have confidence in your abilities.
There may be an advantage to working with an attorney-owned real estate brokerage. In Tampa, once choice you should consider is Quicksilver Real Estate Group.
Tips for finding the right brokerage firm
If you have trouble locating the best brokerage firm that is in line with your career goals, consider the following suggestions:
· Ask family and friends, which real estate agents they work with, and why
· Check social media for popular real estate agents
· Run a simple online search and see the top companies in your area
· Ask local lenders or title companies, which offices or agents they usually work with
· Ask for recommendations from your training school
Remember, it's ok to talk with several brokers before making a decision.
Switching brokerage firms
Once you have become skilled at your job and gained the relevant real estate experience, you may want to switch brokerage firms. This will allow you to enhance your career and even gain more money. You just need to notify your brokerage at least one month in advance and then you can search for a different broker or even start your own company. All you need is hard work and honesty to be able to build up a good client base to support you even as you make the move.
Don't forget to work out a transition plan for your existing listings. We can help with this.
