Legal Hotline FAQs: Agents Leaving of Changing Firms

VAR's Blake Hegeman discusses the perennial favorite topic: what goes down when agents leave or change firms?

Questions answered include:

  • What happens if an agent leaves a firm when they have a deal pending?
  • Can you still be paid while in transition to another firm?
  • Where does the payment come from in those instances?

License-status info from DPOR

The good folks at DPOR are working hard to get your license paperwork processed — applications, transfers, and the like.

We’ve already given you some tips on how to speed that process; we’ve got some more info to pass on.

Don’t call DPOR and ask for the status of your license. No one there can give it to you.

Get that? The same people who process applications are answering the phones, so every minute spent explaining “I’m sorry, I can’t provide that information” means one minute fewer actually processing it.
