Unlicensed Assistants

At  the beginning of 2019 the Board of Directors voted on an Unlicensed assistant fee of $52. 

With our New Navica MLS, Unlicensed Assistants are divided up between Office Administrators and Personal Assistants.

Office Administrators have the ability to monitor, search, prospect, CMA's, etc. for agents and the firm.

Personal Assistants are assigned to a specific agent or agents and can do all the same things just for the agent(s).

Billing for Administrators are sent to the Broker and billing for personal assistants are sent to the agents.
