|" I wouldn’t mind doing a dozen signings in the beginning for a low-ball price bc it will give me the opportunity to read the doc’s front to back and learn a ton. Take notes, make cheat sheets, etc..."|
You have good intentions however this is the kind of thing newbies do that is driving all our signing offers low, keep deadbeats in business and will kill you in the long run.
This is not on the job training. You HAVE to know your business before you go into a signing.
What are you going to do when you sit down at the head of the conference table, have attorneys present on both sides, the LO and the realtor staring at you and you conduct your closing? Are you ready for the eyes, pressure, the presentation of documents and charisma needed to impress and know your business?
Not always the case, but you never know. You don't get to handpick your closings, and they will never tell you who will be present. You gotta know your stuff. It's not for the faint of heart.
We also get "readers"...Do you know how to handle them? If you don't, be prepared to be there for about 6 hours and have a battle of the documents, because they will find something every page to fight about, want changes, refuse to sign.
It's a hard job. just know what you are in for and such little money. Do yourself a favor, and don't work for free for knowledge. They will not teach you anything except how to do collections afterwards.
