Q: How will I know all of the company procedures?
A. Our Policy and Procedures Manual is detailed and easy to read. You can always turn to that for “how to” do anything with us
Q: How and when do we receive our commissions?
A. Our company does payroll almost every day. You can also take advantage of our “paid at closing” option on your sales. Keep in mind; we only pay commissions on cleared funds. Title company checks and personal checks take time to clear. If you choose to get “paid at closing” the title Company or Attorney conducting the closing pays you your portion of the commission directly the same day of the closing, getting paid at closing is very simple with our office all you have to do is a get paid at closing request which can be done right within the transaction management system of Appfiles, once there simply fill out the simple web form and click request a signature the office will immediately get notified that you are requesting to get paid at closing. We will then verify that the file is in compliance and approve your request once the request is approved the system will generate a letter which basically authorizes the escrow agent to pay you directly and to send us our portion.It’s that simple… No need to print, fax, or sign anything our goal at Virtuoso is to make everything you do as efficient as possible while also contributing to GOING GREEN through our paperless systems!

We work with several vendors which all have our designs set up and ready to go, all you have to do is go to there website and select the style of business card or sign you need, place the order online and within a few days you will have your promotional material. We are also setup with an apparel Company so if you would like to order business shirts, polos or promotional materials with our logo you can also do that at a very affordable price.
Q: Where is Virtuoso International located?
A:Our corporate offices are located in Charlotte, NC and Port St. Lucie, FL, however if you do not live near our office there is nothing to worry about as a matter of fact the majority of our agents do not live near us, you see when you join Virtuoso we will set you up with your very own Appfiles account where you will be able to manage all aspects of your business. In addition our agents get paid at the closing table, so no need to send us a check or wait a couple days for your commission, title Company or attorney conducting the closing will pay you your portion of the commission directly that very same day. (Which by the way it is 100%!!) With that said our agents find that they do not need to live near our offices since everything is online and you get paid at closing.
