I love Stuart St James, it’s a great model and works perfectly for what I need to do. I only do real estate deals when convenient or when it is necessary for a project I am working on. No one cares if I do more or less deals which is great since the broker’s income does not change based on that. I joined Stuart St James because of the pay structure – I thought it was a waste to pay out a percentage of my commission every closing when I did not really need anything in return or utilize any office amenities.

Questions Real Estate Agent Investors Ask When Joining a 100% Commission Virtual Real Estate Brokerage for Investors
No, there are no transaction minimums or quota and you will not be asked to leave if you haven’t closed a deal in x months. Your investment strategy is your own, and we respect that – some of our investor agents only do a select number of deals annually for their own income producing real estate portfolio. A broker will not look over your shoulder and eagerly ask you when you will close your next deal – it should be evident gross commission as a result of closing a deal is immaterial to Stuart St James, as 100% of gross commission is passed to agents, save a relatively inconsequential transaction fee in our Launch plan (the Elevate plan has no transaction fees).
There’s no minimum term or commitment period when affiliating with Stuart St James.
Yes. In order to qualify to sell HUD homes, Associate Brokers and Selling Agents register on the HUD Homestore site using their personal real estate license number and their Principal Broker’s Name and Address Identification (NAID) Number. Stuart St James has a HUD-issued Principal Broker NAID which allows registered real estate agents on our team to show, advertise, and submit offers on HUD Homes. This has proven valuable to many of the real estate investor agents on the team.
The only document we electronically sign is the decades-old standard independent contractor agreement (ICA) promulgated by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) with the fee schedule on our website as an exhibit – transparently available for your full review here (Launch plan PDF) and here (Elevate plan PDF).
Yes. The investor agents on the team are Massachusetts real estate agents who are investors themselves. They not only enjoy helping new real estate investors not yet licensed get into investing but also have their own income producing real estate investor portfolios as well, including multifamily unit deals – and they’re doing that with the luxury of taking home 100% commission on their transaction side, which is a significant and material amount of money.
All earnest money deposits, along with additional Purchase & Sale Agreement (P&S) deposits, are held in escrow by your seller’s real estate attorney / closing attorney, not Stuart St James.
Gross commission is always made payable to Stuart St James and deposited by you or wired by a closing attorney into our business operating account (mailing of checks causes significant delays in processing and transferring your net commission). After submitting supporting transaction documentation electronically and your gross commission deposit clears, transfer of your net commission is immediate via three payment options – those three options include (1) BillPay physical check (free) (2) electronic transfer to a Bank of America account with $5,000 daily limit (free) or (3) wire transfer ($30 fee).
No. Stuart St James does not charge agents different transaction fees for different priced properties, nor do we charge agents for coverage of our errors and omissions (E&O) insurance policy be that on a per transaction basis or otherwise. Some of our investor agents are multifamily apartment brokers in Massachusetts and do million dollar deals.
No. Massachusetts decouples MLS access from Realtor status and there’s no requirement to join the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR), or the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) to affiliate with Stuart St James.
No, it’s not required – if you’re simply looking to hang your license and/or keep fees low, access and affiliation with a MLS is optional. Membership to New England’s largest MLS system, called MLS Property Information Network (MLS PIN), is optional and costs $126 per quarter. That said, MLS PIN access is nearly ubiquitous across our investor agent team members.
Most definitely, 100%. Simply follow the professional standards of practice related to advertising (254:CMR 3:00:9) outlined by the government of Massachusetts. All of our investor agents are scaling their own businesses and property groups.
It’s a simple and straightforward process which can reasonably be accomplished in well under one (1) business day. We’ve automated nearly the entire process which has allowed us to eliminate a one-time agent setup fee. We electronically sign the ICA, you pay your first monthly agent fee, we provision you a stuartstjames.com G Suite account, file the necessary affiliation paperwork with the Board, and share a welcome email with you.
