Yes. In order to join The Morine Group, REALTORS, you must be a member of one of our board associations.

Yes. A mentor is assigned to an agent for the each of the agent’s first four transactions.

Mentors assist with:

  • Understanding TMGR’s systems and applications.
  • Understanding contracts and comps.
  • Working with clients.
  • Utilizing company resources.
  • Writing and approving offers and contracts.
  • Introducing new agents to preferred vendors.

Mentors may or may not provide coaching, motivation or leads. A mentor’s value typically starts once the agent gets a client.

We expect each agent to complete at least one transaction per calendar year.

Periodically, an agent gets a lead from the company. The company split for a company lead is 70/30 and 60/40 depending on the lead source.

We prefer to teach our agents how to generate their own leads through our lead generation website. They receive a 100% commission minus a transaction fee for those leads.

Several affordable healthcare plans available for agents to choose.

We recommend realtors have a minimum budget of $500 per month. A Realtor is an independent contractor, who operates and manages their own business. TMGR provides several free tools, but other commitments and disciplines must be used to launch and sustain a thriving real-estate career.
