Does anyone have a company "Policy and Procedures" Handbook to offer? I am trying to develop a Handbook for our office detailing quality of work, inter office review (guidelines), turn around times, office manager/client communication, etc... ??? I would greatly appreciate any information that you may be able to email or fax. Thanks !!!

Check with your local Board of Realtors. I have a standard company policy that I got from our local BOR office for my brokerage firm. You may be able to edit something like that to meet your needs.

Ric,

I frequently refer to my 'company policy' when
I avoid assignments.

It goes something like this....

"Its company policy to collect fees in advanced from
California mortgage brokers." (I live in Oregon)

"Its my policy not to get involved in any appraisal
work involving 'Psycho Appraiser' since its just a
waste of my time."

"I do not do review work, its my policy." (Since the
pay stinks and your expected to vindicate crapy
appraisal reports)

See how it works.

<span style='color:brown'>Ric, hire a local company to write it for you (get the usual references). Expect to spend a few bucks and spend quite a bit of time working with them. It will save time and money in the long run as you won't be "reinventing the wheel." Once it is complete, have an attorney review it for legal issues. Have it reviewed periodically (annually at least) by the attorney because laws change and you do not want to end up with a harrassment or some other silly suit just because the company policy manual failed to address the issue du jour.</span>
