See additional provisions applicable to all Users and Members in the final paragraphs of these Terms and Conditions
By completing the enrollment process on our website or otherwise as we direct, an applicant becomes either a Broker/Licensed Real Restate Professional Member or an Affiliate/Unlicensed Member. The person who completes the enrollment information warrants and represents the information provided about the applicant is true, current, accurate and complete.
After an applicant becomes a Member, they are entitled to use the services PropertyDrive offers including posting content to our website and sending messages via our email broadcast service.
Membership is annual. An applicant that completes our enrollment process and is accepted by PropertyDrive will become a Member for the balance of the calendar year in which their enrollment was completed. After the first calendar year of membership, the Member’s membership will be automatically renewed for each subsequent calendar year if the Member pays PropertyDrive the Annual Membership Fee. We will automatically send each Member to their billing email address on record with us, an invoice stating the amount of Annual Membership Fee owed. A Member may cancel the automatic renewal of their membership by providing notice of cancellation to us within 30 days of receipt of our annual invoice. Notices of cancellation may be sent to us by email. No annual fee will be prorated for a partial year and an annual fee is not refundable in whole or in part.
If a Member operates offices in more than one geographic location and requests to include its satellite office(s) in its Membership, we will charge an additional $25.00 for each calendar year for each of the Member’s satellite offices. All activity by the Member’s satellite office(s) will be billed on the Member’s invoice. If a Member or satellite office wants the satellite office to be charged separately and receive an invoice separate from the Member, the satellite office itself will need to enroll as a Member.
Each Member may add to their membership an unlimited number of employees, direct subcontractors, or other persons who have contracted to perform services for or through the Member, and each such person shall be either an “Agent” or a “Company Administrator” of the Member. Each Agent may add, change or remove his/her individual information and his/her listed properties. A Member may also designate one or more “Company Administrators” with authority to add, change or remove information about the Member, about any Agents of the Member and the property listings of the Member and the Member’s Agents. Each Agent and Company Administrator must maintain a working email and password for accessing our website which is separate from the email for their Member. Company Administrators and Agents may not share with others their password for accessing our website.
There is no additional charge to a Member for adding an Agent or Company Administrator with the same physical office location as the Member. If a Member adds an Agent or Company Administrator based at a physical location other than the Member’s physical location, we will treat the addition of the first Agent at the different physical location as the addition of a satellite office and charge the Member the additional $25.00 annual fee for a satellite office. After the 5 addition of a satellite office to the Membership, there is no additional charge for adding more Agents or Company Administrators located at the same satellite office.
Each and every Member, Company Administrator and Agent must provide PropertyDrive and maintain for our use, a working email address. Each Member, Company Administrator and Agent must maintain a password that works for accessing our website. Each Member, Company Administrator and Agent is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his/her log-in information and for the activities that occur under his/her email address and password.
A Member may control the public display of their email address on our website, however, PropertyDrive may use the Member’s email address for invoicing and communication and for Member-to-Member communications. By applying to become a Member, the applicant grants permission to PropertyDrive to communicate with the Member via email, online chat function, telephone and facsimile for any purposes related to PropertyDrive’s business activities, and agrees to receive broadcast email messages and online chat invitations from PropertyDrive, as well as broadcast and email messages from other Members.
A Member may submit to PropertyDrive information about one or more properties including text descriptions, images, videos (including sound and/or music), illustrations, graphics, dimensions, and amounts. By posting or providing any content about a property for distribution via the PropertyDrive website, the Member represents the content meets the following requirements and the Member warrants:
If the content is posted or provided by a Company Administrator or Agent, the Company Administrator’s or Agent’s Member will be deemed to have made such warranties and representations.
When Members post or provide for distribution on our website information about an available property, such content is an “advertisement.” As a Member, you agree to pay us a fee for any advertisement you post or provide. Each advertisement must include for the subject property and the price or rate (whichever applies). We will continue to display and charge for an advertisement until the Member or Agent removes the advertisement. No Member may remove another Member’s advertisement. The current fees we charge for advertisements can be found at https://propertydrive.com/sign-up/. We will promptly invoice each Member for their advertisements. Invoices will be sent to the Member’s billing email address of record with us. A Member is required to pay our invoice within 30 days of the date on the invoice, except, if a 6 Member has failed to pay two or more invoices by each invoice’s due date, thereafter, we may, in our discretion, require that invoices for subsequent services be paid within ten (10) days of the date on the invoice. We will notify the Member by email if we change the due date on our subsequent invoices to payment due in ten (10) days. The Member will owe us interest from the payment due date at the rate of 1.5% per month on the amount owed and remaining unpaid after the payment due date. In addition to interest, a Member will owe us a late fee of $25.00 for each invoice not paid by its due date.
If we have not received payment in full on an invoiced amount within 30 days of the date on the original invoice, the Member’s advertisements covered by the unpaid invoice will be removed from our website and other services. We may refuse to provide services to a Member, including removing all advertisements and content the Member has posted, denying the posting of new content, and withholding use of our broadcast email service if the Member has an outstanding balance owed to us which is more than 90 days past due.
Each Member agrees to check and update each of their advertisements at least every 30 days. Each Member shall remove as promptly as possible their advertisement(s) for a property that has been sold or leased or for which the listing has expired.
By posting an advertisement on our website, a Member also agrees that PropertyDrive may, without contacting the Member for further or specific permission, provide the Member’s advertisement to other parties which maintain for public access electronic, online listings of properties offered for sale or rent, provided, PropertyDrive does not charge the Member an additional fee for this service. For example, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) makes available “Locate in Wisconsin®” a website providing advertisements for properties available for sale or rent. On a daily basis, PropertyDrive automatically provides new advertisements we receive to WEDC for inclusion on the Locate in Wisconsin® website. If we are able to arrange with other providers of online commercial property listings inclusion of our Members’ advertisements in the other provider’s online listings, we will automatically provide our Member’s advertisements to those other providers for inclusion in their listings if we can do so with no or minimal cost to us. A Member will not have the choice to have its advertisements excluded from any other provider’s website with whom PropertyDrive has arranged to automatically share Member advertisements.
CIREX the Wisconsin company, produces a monthly paper listing guide of offered commercial properties. PropertyDrive maintains an arrangement with CIREX whereby if our Member selects the CIREX choice on our website, we will automatically share the Member’s advertisements with CIREX for inclusion in the CIREX hard copy monthly printed listing guide, as well as provide CIREX the Member’s email address(es) and other contact information. By selecting on our website to have their advertisements also published in the CIREX listing guide, the Member agrees that CIREX may, without PropertyDrive’s further involvement, invoice the Member directly for an annual CIREX membership fee as well as the cost of each monthly publication by CIREX of each of the Member’s advertisements. If a Member has chosen the option available on our website to have their advertisements forwarded to CIREX, the Member’s advertisements posted to our website before the 15th day of the month, will be forwarded by us to CIREX for publication in the next CIREX monthly printed listing guide. We will forward to CIREX Member contact information and advertisements in exactly the form the Member provides this 7 information to us. If a Member has not selected the CIREX choice on our website, we will not forward the Member’s advertisements to CIREX.
PropertyDrive also offers the service, with no additional fee, of allowing Broker/Licensed Real Estate Professional Members to broadcast messages to all other Members via our email mailing list, provided, each such message is either a Member advertisement, a client need for real estate or a notice of an event directly related to commercial real estate. No Member may use our email mailing list to send messages containing any communication other than the Member’s advertisement, client need for real estate or notice of an event directly related to commercial real estate. If a Member uses our email broadcast system to send a message about a property which is not the subject of a PropertyDrive advertisement, the Member will be charged and will owe a fee of $15.00 for each such message sent. If a Member uses our broadcast email service for an illegal or improper purpose, we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, suspend a Member’s use of our broadcast email service or terminate the membership of the Member. A Member shall be exclusively liable for any and all claims arising from the content of messages delivered using our broadcast email service, and shall indemnify PropertyDrive for any expenses we incur, including attorney fees, as a consequence of the content of a Member’s message.
Individuals or companies holding government issued real estate practice licenses are eligible to become “Broker/Licensed Real Estate Professional Members.” The Annual Membership Fee and other fees we charge Broker/Licensed Real Estate Professional Members may be different than the fees we charge Affiliate/Unlicensed Members. The listing of fees we currently charge Broker/Licensed Real Estate Professional Members and Affiliate/Unlicensed Members can be found at https://propertydrive.com/sign-up/. We may verify any claim of licensure. However, we are under no obligation to verify the licensure of any entity or individual who claims licensure on our application or in content distributed through our website, broadcast email service or other services.
By law, Members may pay a finder’s fee, referral fee, commission or a part thereof to any other party holding a valid real estate practice license. PropertyDrive has no responsibility for any representations or mentions made in any advertisement or email message about payment of a finder’s or referral fee, part of a commission earned or a co-broke commission. PropertyDrive will not interpret any representation or reference made or determine any dispute related to any mention of such sharing or splitting of fees or commissions.
The Annual Membership Fee and other fees we charge Affiliate/Unlicensed Members may be different than the fees we charge Broker/Licensed Real Estate Professional Members.

We may verify any claim of ownership of real estate or an applicant’s claim it is a real estate related services entity or agent of a real estate related services entity such as a financial institution, government agency, appraiser, title company, property manager, or attorney or law firm. However, we are under no obligation to verify that any entity or individual who claims 8 ownership or primary business activity as a real estate related services entity, actually owns real estate or actually engages in real estate related services
