Our passion and lifeblood is our agents. Their success is our success and to that end, our compensation structure is not fee dependent. There are no desk fees, franchise fees, IT fees, advertising fees, broker review fees, coffee fees or website fees. We do not get paid until our agents get paid and that makes their success our priority.
When an agent first joins us, we set them up with business cards, personalized directional signs and sign riders, company e-mail, a page on the company website and announcements at our expense so that they can hit the ground running as a Hana Associate. They get marketing and listing support to help grow their businesses and to present the best listings in the market. They get the support of a broker who manages full time and is available to the agents on evenings and weekends, full time office staff, a property manager and a dynamic team environment where the broker and agents meet once a week just to keep each other accountable and motivated.
For our newly licensed Associates, we have a unique, comprehensive PAID training program. Associates who are accepted into our Mentor Protégé Program receive a monthly salary and paid health, vision and dental coverage for 1-4 months. However, the greatest asset of this program is the training, a comprehensive 12 week training program that starts from the basics of laying the foundation of your business to developing business to working with clients.
