The second program brokerage allows all agents to benefit through profit sharing. No recruiting, MLM or rah - rah. This brokerage demonstrates a real confidence in their process and system. Knowing the small print won't deny my expectation to participate in the brokerage profit, each small success encourages greater interaction and cooperation with peer agents to build and even more dynamic enterprise and to invest in the success of my peers.
Clearly, if profit sharing were a motivator, the second brokerage is where I would hang my sign. The challenge is seeing through the smoke and mirrors and drilling down to the statistics revealing the percentage of agents who benefit from the revenue share or even realize a mulitplier effect of the team building tidal wave. My research reveals the percentage of 'agent stars' in the revenue sharing based on recruitment environment is less than that of non-revenue sharing, non-MLM brokerages. The statistical proof simply isn't evident here in my piece of the Sunshine State.
As you can see, none of these reveue sharing propositions have proven themselves to the exent I would consider leaving the most recognized brand in real estate.
