I don't think that is possible. I believe that the supervising broker is the only one who gets commission. Hopefully this clears things up for you. Good luck James! http://msdreamhome.com/areas/annandale/... more
Picking an agency is a personalized thing. What is the best depends on who you ask. Why don'r you give Steve Dickinson a call he manages Alan Pinel, also Andy Gellepis at Frank Howard Allen. Both manage Mill Valley offices.. Both companies have great training.
Pacific Union and Sotheby's may only take more seasoned agents, although I would call them anyway because it would be good to learn about them anyway. Melissa Bradley, I know plenty of agents who are quite happy there too.
One thing to know, real estate is still a people business, how well you do is really up you, no matter who you chose to hang your license with. Clients work with you first and the company second.
Do some homework with informational interviews and you'll figure out where you want to go.
Good Luck!... more
IF you're greedy, keep it and never see the client again.Not even worth the breath to argue over it.
This is REAL problem with "regular" agents.
A commission should be earned when it's PAID by the tenant. This is more so in commercial real estate.
Most agents/brokers will ask and get paid a comm when the deal is signed - for the LENGTH of a contract.
So assume a 50,000 year lease for 5 years - $250,000 total rent.
At 5% (most comm want more) that's $2500 per year or $12500 for the term over 5 years - what if ten years? $25,000 per year.
Well, what if the tenant leaves after 6 months and the landlord paid you a $25,000 commission.
Guess how my broker who has been around for 40 YEARS handles this - WE TAKE commisison on the anniversary of the lease. IF THE LANDLORD MAKES MONEY< WE MAKE MONEY - YEAR AFTER YEAR.
It's an annuity.
I get MORE listings working this way, have a great tax planning, and know I have incomefor the next 12-18 years - assuming my tenant who I swore to is a GOOD tenant today and tomorrow.
