Prospect Searches


Now that you understand the basic workings of searches - we can help you add your client under the Prospect Search.

Clients Email Address
City
Area (Neighbourhood)
Community is optional
Price
Type
Bedrooms

You will not get a copy so we must do the same search entry all over again with your name as the Prospect and we will send them to you in Broker Full.

This all takes time therefore an admin fee will apply starting at $25.00 - it is more difficult and timely than most people realize.   But it still saves you thousands from joining the board if you only have 1 or 2 clients a year.

You are here today to understand what searches can be made to streamline adding a Prospect Search

 


Lets Begin Our Search


Hamilton / Burlington Board tracks its members by their IP Address.  If you share your code it is very easy for them to find out especially if you are logged in at a Mississauga location at 4 p.m. and at 4:30 you are logged in via a Toronto Location.

$33,000 Was the Last Fine issued for sharing your codes.

Oakville Board


More Oakville agents seem to be transfering to TREB.

Only 329 Sales were reported by the oakville board in April - agents do not want to be affixed to only the oakville only board. More are switching over to TREB since it is too expensive to pay for both.
