From a real estate investors stand point has anyone ever heard about becoming an unlicensed real estate agent assistant? This of course would be after you have built rapport with an agent and would like to not only finally get access to MLS but help your agent by funneling deals to them as a "payment" of being an assistant under their name.
I found a video on it what do you guys think? Is this a common practice?
Most agents who have assistants want them to be licensed. If they're not licensed then they are extremely limited in what they can do.
@David Hunter but if all I want is MLS access and in return I pass deals through them wouldn't that be a win win for everyone?
Why not just ask an agent if they can set you up on an auto-notification system so every time a new listing is entered into the MLS you'll get a notification right away...
I guess I’m just exploring different options. I’m still new at this so I’m trying to learn all the different routes and choose the best one that I feel comfortable with. The auto notification sounds great actually.
