Introduction / Insight Hello, future agents, my name is Clinton Paquette. Since 1994, I've been selling and leasing homes in the State of Michigan. Since 2009, however, I've been doing these sales and leases as an independent real estate brokerage, and not as a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). And while I've been content for this prolonged period of time, I now have the desire to rejoin NAR (I'm a former member), and expand my real estate brokerage.
Specifically, my goal is to recruit at least one dozen agents beginning April 22, 2019, and extending into the summer of 2019. And while this is a lofty goal for a small real estate company like mine, I truly believe it's an attainable goal.
In closing this introduction statement, I would finally like to say that I'm not seeking to become just another member office among other member offices within a multiple listing service (MLS) organization. This, in my opinion, would be rather boring, and a negative addition to NAR. My objective, instead, is to build Paquette Realty into a model real estate company that is a positive force within its industry. If I can accomplish this, the National Association of Realtors would benefit as a whole. And I, personally, would be very proud to have contributed my part.
Experienced Agents -- Is it time for change? Even in the turbulent waters of our daily existence, many of us are still slow to change course for the better. But when conditions are such that they threaten to overtake us, emotionally, it is then time for immediate change. If that need for something better brings you into my office, I can offer you long-term stability, and therefore a brighter future as a Realtor.
To elaborate, my office offers a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere that will enable you to perform to the best of your ability. Equally important, you will also get the support of other Realtors within the office. Needless to say, I value both individualism and the team effort. The two attributes, combined, can only result in a stronger, more competitive office.
Newly Licensed Agents or soon-to-be Licensed Agents Oh, how time flies. Even though many years have come and gone, it really only seems like yesterday that I received my letter in the mail, notifying me that I had passed my real estate examination. With the receiving of that professionally drafted piece of paper, my hopes and dreams had all come to fruition; my diligence had finally paid off.
Fast forward to 2019, and a new generation of Realtors, many of you have also received your mailed confirmations. So, the culmination of your efforts have also been rewarded.
That said, you will now be burdened with the task of finding a real estate brokerage. In your search, I only ask that you make one of your calls to my office. Just recently, I've put together a comprehensive plan that will help to launch your real estate career. To discuss the details of this plan, call me at 586.443.0125.
Part-Time is okay! Since my real estate company allows you to work part-time, you now have the opportunity to put your real estate license to work for you. Furthermore, because most homeowners work Monday through Friday, and on the day shift, an evening or weekend listing appointment is usually better for them, anyway. And if your task is to write a purchase agreement for a home buyer, this could also be done in the evening or on the weekend. So, starting out as a part-time Realtor could work out well for you. Equally important, this part-time endeavor could eventually lead to a full-time career in real estate sales! To learn more about my plan for you, first read the bottom of this page. Then call me at 586.443.0125.
Rejected Agents Because many real estate brokers and sales trainers lack the ability and patience to train new salespeople, they often assert that their failure to train a new agent was due to that person not being trainable, and therefore not meant to have a career in real estate sales. And while this assertion might be correct for 1 in 10 people, the majority of persons, I believe, are very capable of learning new skills, and embracing new ideas. It just takes the right real estate broker or sales trainer to develop those skills and techniques.
So, if you have a burning desire to succeed, I can help you with the rest! To schedule a one-on-one meeting with me, call 586.443.0125. As always, I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Agent Compensation Plan For 2019 Beginning January 1, 2019, and continuing through December 31, 2019, we are offering a 50/50 commission split up to $10,000. After you pay us that $10,000, and only if you still have time remaining in 2019, you will then be on a 100% commission program, minus only $200 per closed transaction. All agents will be on this January 1 through December 31 plan. Come January 1 of 2020, the commission structure will start anew. The plan is very easy to understand. It's also one of the best in the realty industry!
