Just listened to Mark's podcast about having access to the MLS and making hot and fast deals. It sounds compelling and I am interested in looking into attaining my RE license in Missouri. I am currently an investor with a growing portfolio of houses in KCMO. I would find value in having access to the MLS but only if I am able to buy and sell independently without working under a broker who will require that I pay commissions. My question is this: am I
required to work under a firm/broker in order to attain a license and have access to the MLS? How can I then offers on houses or sell them independent of the broker for whom I am affilated? I want to ensure that I am playing by the rules and not breaking any laws - any thoughts out there?
