Now That The Market is Slow, Renegotiate Your Commission Split

By
Real Estate Agent with Richter Realty, Inc.

As the market gets tougher agents scramble to fine tune their marketing plans, but most forget to renegotiate their commission splits with their brokers.

To start making more money as an agent, you have to realize the most important thing is your commission split. You'll make more money by keeping more of your hard earned commission. If the company you work for is agent driven they will be more willing to renegotiate. Well, think of this...

Do you get  referrals from past clients?

If you have...do you think they referred to you because you worked for a recognized company? Or because YOU gave them the best service & results possible?

Is the agents who make a company, not the well known brand name! Keep yourself motivated. give yourself a raise.
