Real Estate Careers with
DMS Properties, LLC
Residential Real Estate Services

As with any new business, there are start-up costs, and real estate is no different.

Real Estate Start-Up Expenses

We try to minimize the expenses to help new agents get started. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect beginning a real estate career with DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services :

  • Business Cards (Approximately $100) ... while not a necessity, we recommend them as a way of personal promotion.

  • Car Magnetic Signs -- roughly $100 ... also not a necessity, but a good way to promote yourself as an established business person.

  • Errors & Ommissions Insurance -- this is absolutely required in the real estate business, but our company blanket policy covers all of our agents, so there is no out-of-pocket expense to you

  • Board Dues -- We do not require that new agents become a member of the
    National Association of Realtors, the Maryland Association of Realtors or
    the local board of realtors ... immediately. This generally costs approximately
    $700 per year and can be a deal-breaker to new agents. There are some
    disadvantages to this for the agents ... and we'll gladly discuss that with you,
    as well as how we can help with this as you begin your business. Eventually,
    though, you will want to begin your Association membership.

  • Cell phone with a good data plan and a personal hot spot -- we do not provide these, but most people have them now already, and the personal hot spot comes in handy when you're on the road.

  • Internet access -- Our office is equipped with WIFI, but you need to be able to get on-line elsewhere; most people already have access to Internet at home.

  • Agent Web Site -- we will set up an agent web site as part of the company
    web site. Agents are not required to do provide their own "personal" web
    site or anything additional (except write some of the copy that will be on your
    company web site) but are welcome to if they like, subject to Broker approval
    just like all forms of advertising.
