Commissions, Business Identity & Your Clients
We pay industry high commissions, we allow you to maintain your OWN business identity and best of all your book of business is privately kept for your own sole use. This is not typical of other host agencies. The typical host wants to pay you less, they want you to adopt their name and represent them while you are doing all the business. Your client list will remain in sole possession of yourself unlike any other host agency. We want to promote your hard work, dedication and success by providng you the freedom you have earned professionally. Our duty as a host is to cut your costs, provide you ample support and deliver the tools necessary to succeed in this ever changing industry. With respect comes opportunity!
We have a dedicated training department and provide access to pertinent trainings on a daily basis. We have corporate trainings, website trainings, invoice trainings, quality control trainings, luxury vendor trainings, maximize your earnings trainings, etc. It is our job to provide you the support you need to better serve your clients.
