My team leader signed me up, how do I start an account?
As an agent on a team, you'll want to follow this 3-step process to complete the setup of your account:
2) Follow the steps to start a membership for the AGENT program (right option).
3) Upon checkout, you'll enter the promo code your team leader will have received ahead of time. With that code, your balance will be brought to $0 and you can finalize setting up your account.
PRO TIP: A credit card is required to complete setting up your account. This is for verification purposes only and WILL NOT charge your card so long as your unique promo code is used.
I'm an agent on a team, what do I have access to?
Join one of the nation's leading teams, Omaha's Elite Real Estate Group, every Wednesday and Friday for various topics that help build a powerhouse business.
I forgot to use my promo code & was charged, what next?
The promo code my Team Leader gave me isn't working, why?
- The code only works when registering under the Agent membership, not team membership.
- Check for spelling errors, it only takes one wrong letter and it won't work.
- The code will not work if you're trying to sign up on a Thursday - Team Leader or Special Events paywall, only Wednesday team training and/or Friday dialogue training paywalls.
- It may not be the code at all, but rather the credit card number. - Make sure you check that as well.
Why do I have to enter a credit card number if I have a promo code?
If you're using a promo code that grants you 100% off your membership, a credit card is still required.
This is simply for account verification purposes and to ensure your account is unique to you. As long as the promo code is used, it's coded to NEVER charge your card. So you can rest easy!

What is Elite Real Estate Systems?
Head to the About page on our website to get the scoop!
Why should I follow ERS?
In a general sense, your typical real estate agent doesn't get the kind of leadership they need to not only have success in real estate, but in building a business that they own, instead of it owning them.
Elite Real Estate Systems is a coaching and consulting company that is by all means, no has-been. Through a perfect marriage of running one of the nation's top real estate teams, Omaha's Elite Real Estate Group, side-by-side to Elite Real Estate Systems, we're able to provide real-time knowledge and strategies on what's happening in our industry today.
ERS wasn't conjured up in a conference room full of people brainstorming on how to make more money. It started with a simple notion to share, and share everything. Now, through our national connections, we're tapping into all the pockets of amazing talent throughout the country and brining them to light.
Our goal is to continue sharing by offering 10 times the value at nearly 1/4th of the price of other coaching companies. At ERS, we're looking out for everyone at every level, and that's why you should follow us.
