Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any extra fees for the technology and marketing tools you provide me with?
Absolutely not. All of our technology tools, including Commissions Inc (CINC), InfusionSoft, our Virtual BackOffice, DocuSign and others are provided at no additional cost. Realty Partners will literally provide you with cutting edge tools that would cost you over $2,500/month if you had to purchase them yourself.
Can I use my own domain name?
Absolutely! We encourage all agents to brand themselves using a yourname.com domain name. We can forward/point your domain web address to your Commissions Inc subdomain, as well as configure our Google Apps and email system so you can use your own domain name.
Will you provide me with business cards, for sale signs, etc?
Yes, we will provide you with an initial set of business cards as well as a name tag. We will also provide you with Realty Partners For Sale signs and sign installation at no additional cost. If you want to have your own branded For Sale signs produced you can do so, and we will still pay for the sign installation and take down.
How do I get paid?
Prior to closing you will request a funding authorization through the back office. We then issue a Disbursement Authorization and direct the closing agent to disburse your funds to you directly at the closing table (or alternatively mail you your check directly if you are not attending the closing). If for any reason a closing agent were to pay Realty Partners directly for the entire gross commission, then we will make payment to you the following day via direct deposit to your bank account.
Can I do rental and property management with Realty Partners?
At this time Realty Partners is not supporting any property management services. Our focus is on sale and purchase transactions only.
How quickly can you get me set up?
To join us simply click on the “Join us!” link at the top of this page. The entire setup process will take less than 24 hours to complete.

What areas of Florida do you serve?
The Realty Partners plan is currently offered in the Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte County areas, as well as the Greater Tampa Bay Area with full functionality, and in other areas throughout the State of Florida with some limitations as we build out those markets. Please contact us if you have any questions at all about availability.
Do I need to change my Board or MLS?
Absolutely Not! Realty Partners is a member of multiple REALTOR Associations and MLS’s throughout the State of Florida. If for any reason we are not yet a member of your local association then Realty Partners will join that association.
Do you provide dedicated work space/desk space?
Most agents prefer to work from their home office and for that reason we provide full access to office resources such as 24/7 meeting rooms, printer, scanner, copiers, etc. but we do not provide dedicated office/desk space. If you have a team and want to rent office space then you can do so at cost, saving you significantly over what other brokers would charge you for dedicated office space.
How does "Better than 100%" work?
We reduce your annual CAP for every agent you refer to Realty Partners. If you refer 6 agents then your CAP is reduced to $0, meaning you now receive a true 100% of your commissions without any deductions whatsoever. In addition, you now will have automatically qualified for our profit sharing plan, and will receive profit sharing on top of your commissions.
