Can Agents be Paid Directly from Escrow?

We are often asked if real estate agents can be paid directly from escrow.

The close of a real estate transaction often marks the culmination of months of work to earn a commission. Naturally, agents want to be paid that commission as fast as possible. Any reputable company has requirements to be met before the agent is paid. Namely, that all required documents are in the file. At Balboa Real Estate, we want agents to be paid as soon as possible. Our corporate office is in San Diego Cuunty, but we have agents all over the state of California.  Therefore, it will save agents a couple days if agents are to be paid directly from escrow. If an agent has a complete file with all required paperwork on or before closing, then we will send dibsursement instructions for escrow to pay the agent their portion of the commission directly.
