Connor...

we would love for you to join

Connor, thank you for taking the time to sit down and talk with us.

We think you'd be a great match for the team!

Hart & Olive has big things planned for the rest of 2021 and your energy and potential will both be key in getting us to where we need to be.

What's in it for you?

In exchange for some of the best splits in the industry, this is what you will receive from Hart & Olive and eXp Realty:

  • Collaboration

    • Work with and get ideas from the Triangle's Top Producers.  
       

  • Technology

    • KvCore, MailChimp, and more will be at your disposal.
       

  • Support

    • Have a contract, legal, or marketing question?  We'll make ourselves available so if an issue arises we can quickly address it and move on. 
       

  • Training

    • As the fastest growing real estate firm in the country, a wealth of information from eXp Realty is available.  For more local issues, Hart & Olive's team of local experts is here to share ideas and offer solutions.
       

  • Marketing Director

    • Postcards, signs, emails, websites, new ideas to garner more business?  If you need something designed in a flash, we have you covered.  We're not afraid to think outside the box!

  • Transaction Coordinator

    • Who likes paperwork?  She does.  Simply include her in emails and she'll make sure everyone is clued in on deadlines and that you'll get paid ASAP.
       

  • Leads

    • Real estate has evolved over 10 years and we are not going to wait for people to walk in the door or call off a yard sign.  But when a lead comes through the office they will be distributed in a fair and equitable way.  

Do you want to help us change real estate?

Before you join...

It can be tricky out there.  Let's go through some steps together...

Download all your documents from Dotloop/Docusign/Dropbox going 4 years back and putting them in a Dropbox account categorized by year

3.

Update email address with your new business address in the multiple listing service, zillow, trulia and realtor.com

Go through your current business email address: delete everything and forward to your new address emails of importance

Independent Contractor Agreement:

Did you sign one?  If so, what does it say?

7.

8.

If using an office computer, wipe it and stop using it.
