Residential Award applicants may ONLY count production shown under their name on the Flex Residential Sales Production Report as of December 31, 2016 as well as any non-MLS transactions they submit.

Applicants MUST use the Flex Residential Sales Production Report plus a list of any additional transactions not under your name in MLS, under your partner’s name, or not in 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 number of people contributing to their volume/units or their education hours will be charged with a violation of the Code of Ethics.
