I don't have a clue.
Don't count on getting listings just because you join a group.
At this point in the cycle it may not help you. Most asset managers will not use trial and error of a new REO agent. The AM wants to know who they hire will complete teh tasks on time, get the home priced properly and sold without issues for the AM. The best way to get REO listings is complete bpos for companies that assign listings. Most companies are tossing out agents not doing a good job and giving more to those agents who are doing a good job.
The two biggest Are the Five Star and REOMAC but neither guarantee you listings. They are both good but in many areas REO sales are down but if you go to one if these events you will meet agents around the country and talk to as many banks, asset managers as you can and learn from them what you can do to get listings.
It would not hurt your cause to become an REO listing agent.
However, you may find it easier said than done.
