Join our team!

Watkins Realty is a tech-driven Houston real estate brokerage specifically designed to help renters save time, money, and headache when it comes to finding an apartment!

Our team of experienced locators tend to work less hours and earn more commissions than most other brokerages! Proven by our Broker and statistics! We are seeking highly motivated, licensed real estate agents and apartment locators to join our growing real estate team!

Why Join Our Team?

Our broker has personally leased over 1,500+ luxury apartments virtually within the past 4 years, ranging from garden-style to Houston's finest high rises; including penthouses! When was the last time your broker taught YOU the ability to close real estate deals while in your pajamas? ;) Our apartment locating service is 100% FREE to clients. We believe finding an apartment shouldn’t be difficult. In fact, it should be simple. Reality is, today's consumers have enough access to technology, resources, and tools to find a home on their own. However, the majority don’t know where to begin.

That's why we are here. Our team of agents/locators have access to the BEST technology and systems… including our proprietary custom website, property database, bi-weekly training, scripts, templates, and more resources than you will ever need!! More importantly, the ability to close apartment leases virtually!

Our mission is to revolutionize the way apartments are searched for, forever. Our competition isn’t these other small, medium, or large brokerages, our true competitor is much larger than that. You can probably guess who we’re talking about!

What Can You Expect?

The multi-family locating industry is very competitive, fast-paced, and rapidly growing! Apartment rates tend to fluctuate almost every day! Over 80 NEW luxury complexes are expected to be built in the Houston area.. 2022 alone! We are one of the FIRST to market and promote them, and our market knowledge is on a different level! Our brokerage generates THOUSANDS of quality apartment leads PER MONTH and we offer them to our agents.. for FREE!

We generate leads of ALL apartment types including low, mid, high-rises, lofts, garden-styles, townhomes and more!! (Ranging from budgets of $900-$3000). It’s simply your role as the locator to create a personalized list of apartment options, schedule the tour, and help them lease their dream apartment (using our proven methods and systems)!

After the client pays their first 1 to 2 month’s rent and the apartment complex pays the Broker, we then we pay you! It’s that simple!

What Will You Do?

Reach out to new leads, send property reports, and help locate each client their dream home/apartment!

You'll follow up with clients via text, phone, and email! (85%+ of our leases are closed this way) We provide the SMS/calling software, plus an auto-dialer for increased efficiency!

Touring clients isn’t necessary at our brokerage, however it is highly encouraged! (Some of our agents choose not to tour clients due to current high volume leads being worked)

You’ll learn how to self-generate your own leads leveraging social media and implementing our exact marketing strategies!

You’ll expand your market knowledge of ALL apartment types to be able to close ANY rental lead!

You’ll create, build, & establish relationships with luxury communities and their staff!

You’ll learn how to manage a HIGH volume amount of clients and how to become a CLOSER! Reminder, there’s no limit or cap to the amount of commissions you can earn!

Commission Structure:This position is commission only. You set your own work hours!

Which is about 15-25+ leases per month. (Our broker has procured 64 leases within just 60 days and is willing to teach YOU his exact methods and strategies).
