READY TO GET STARTED
Follow the steps below to join the Front team.
1. Set up an account to pull the initial $145 set up fee & ongoing $45 per month with PaySimple.
2. After #1, you should receive a DocuSign package from firstname.lastname@example.org with Brokerage Policies & Procedures to review & sign. You'll need to opt in if you want to add a premium website (yourname.frontrec.com) for $75 per month or @frontrec.com email for $5 per month. More info on the premium website & it's features can be found on this previously recorded webinar.
3. To get fully set up with TREC, you'll either accept the TREC invite on your email or login to My License Services on the top right of the TREC homepage & request sponsorship from Front #9008236.
4. Make sure your Board of Realtors know that you're officially with Front! We're primary members of ARBOR but also have memberships at GFWAR, MetroTex, CCAR, HAR, ABOR & SABOR. If you haven't joined yet, make sure to get your application completed. Don't see yours, let Amy know & we can discuss options.
5. You should get an email from ZipForms with your new Front login which should be FirstName.LastName. If you don't get it, try hitting the "forgot password" option with that username. In addition to DigitalInk signing software, that ZipForms account will get you access to the optional company templates that give you a starting place on forms for both buyers & sellers.

6. SkySlope should send you an email with login information as well. SkySlope is our repository for all documents to send for compliance and is mandatory for documents to be entered in within 4 days of signing so make sure you have access. It's an easy program but here is a YouTube explaining about how to get started.
7. Confirm that ShowingTime or your preferred showing service has your updated brokerage information. In D/FW, the cost is free to buyer reps & $40 per listing or $55 per month.
