New tool for brokers

Here’s a great new resource for brokers to create their own office policy manual.
It’s VAR’s new Office Policy and Procedures Manual template.

It’s a detailed Word document created by VAR’s Risk Management Committee and the Virginia Manager’s Council, and it’s been vetted by VAR’s legal team.

DPOR experiencing delays

DPOR is experiencing significant delays in processing applications for new and transferring real estate agents.

Monthly applications have been up almost 50 percent this year compared to last, and DPOR simply doesn’t have the staff to handle the increase.

The good news is that DPOR has been approved to pay for overtime — including having staff come in on Saturdays — to catch up on some of the backlog. It’s also received the go-ahead to hire three more staff, and expects to be able to add a fourth as well.

That will make a tremendous difference, but the agency still has had to cut back on phone and e-mail service to focus on processing applications.

How to use WorkSmart Kits

WorkSmart Sales Meeting Kits are designed to be as easy to use as possible.

Each kit has its own Web page. On that page you’ll find two things:

  • Links to printouts (for you, your agents, and your office fridge)
  • A link to a 10-minute presentation (video and a slide show)

Hint: Check out the presentation yourself before you show it.
