The Plan

The 10K Award Program provides a very attractive enticement to the approximately 5000 agents in the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® to show and sell a 10K home for the chance to win $10,000! Plus, the program helps a listing compete against new home builders’ incentives offered to REALTORS®. ERA Shields Real Estate is the ONLY firm in the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® offering this program.

How the 10K Award Program Works

The cost for homeowners to participate in the 10K Award Program is small in relation to the substantial benefit they receive. Sellers agree to pay ERA Shields Real Estate $300 at their home’s closing, in addition to the regular commission.

The fee goes into a holding account. After 50 residential listings in the 10K award program are sold and closed, a drawing is held to award $10,000 of the accumulated funds to an eligible agent.

Any agent who sells at least one of the 50 participating 10K listings is eligible to win the $10,000. By selling more than one 10K listing for any single drawing, agents substantially increase the odds of winning. One winning associate who sold three 10K listings within one round of the award said, “I am totally sold and totally support this program. I go out of my way to show a 10K home!”

Gain The Advantage

The 10K Award Program has proven to give home sellers a significant marketing advantage. Nearly $500,000 has been given away to date and is proven to make a listing really stand out from the pack.  Homeowners receive top dollar for their listing in the shortest amount of time.
