Frequently Asked Questions About Our Referral Program ....
How can I show a property you have listed for rent?
All of our available rental properties are listed on the MLS. Please follow the showing instructions to schedule the appointment.
I have a client that has been approved to lease and is moving into one of your properties. Do I have to be present when they sign paperwork or move in?
You do not have to be present at the execution of the lease or the move-in. Our property managers oversee these tasks. It would be noted at application time that you were the agent for the tenants.
I have a client that would like to apply for one of your properties. What is involved in the application process?
GC Realty & Development runs credit, criminal and eviction background checks on all adult applicants/guarantors. Each adult applicant/guarantor over the age of 18 is required to submit an application to be considered for our rental properties. Applicants can apply and submit an electronic application on this website. A $50 application fee per adult applicant/guarantor is due at the time the application is submitted. In addition to the online application and fee, the following items are to be submitted by each adult applicant/guarantor: copy of valid driver’s license/photo ID, copies of three (3) most recent pay stubs or a copy of most recent 1099 (in the event of self-employment), an employment offer letter (in the event of relocating to the area and/or beginning new employment), if currently renting three (3) most recent cleared rent checks from current residence, proof of income from other sources, and clear color picture of any pets.
I referred a tenant / property. When can I expect to receive my commission?
Referral commissions are disbursed within 5 business days of the tenant taking occupancy of the rental property.
If clients I refer to you later decide to buy a home or sell their home, am I guaranteed to be their agent?
GC Realty & Development GUARANTEES to return the referred client back to the referring REALTOR when the client decides to sell. Our goal is to help you strengthen your relationship with your client. In the meantime, you can rest assure that we will take good care of your clients and their property.
