*Definition of a Team:
A team is 2 or more licensed producing sales associates who combine sales for award or commission sharing in any fashion.  Independent contractors employed by a team in non-selling/non-listing activities are not counted as a member of the team.  A team may apply as a team OR as individuals, but not both.  If a team chooses to apply as individuals the team production is divided by the number on the team and that is the number each member may claim.  Or, we will use the amount shown on the Flex Residential Sales Report under each individual team member’s name as of Dec. 31, 2017.



Individual Residential Award applicants must use the Flex Residential Sales Production Report plus a list of any additional transactions not under your name in the MLS (under your partner’s name or not in the MLS).

If a list of additional transactions is not included with your application, only those transactions under your name in the Flex Residential Sales Production report will count.  Check this report for accuracy after each closing within 5 days; do not wait until year end.

Incomplete or inaccurate applications risk being rejected.

Individuals or teams falsifying their production numbers or # of people contributing to their volume/units or their education hours will be charged with a violation of the Code of Ethics.
