You have 50 agents in your office and you drive a hard bargain. You get a percentage of every deal, sometimes earning almost half of what your agents bring in.
Because you want to maximize profits, your agents are not allowed to make “deals” with their clients. Why?
You put a non-negotiable limit on your agent’s ability to make a deal…
Two reasons for these limits come to mind (1) you want to keep profits high and (2) if agents didn’t have commission guidelines then they would be under-bidding each other for clients.
So instead of providing great rates, agents are forced to create value in different ways. This can be a good thing. But, mostly the real difference between agents is their ability to market and sell to you. You’ll notice in almost every advertisement that an agent or broker creates that they’ll discuss most everything but their fee structure is not a topic for discussion.
The truth is that you now have lots of power in the client-agent relationship. This comes from being able to search online. Moreover, you can research and guide your home buying & selling experience in ways that weren’t available just a few years ago.
So you’re not dependent, and that’s a great thing! But let’s not get too carried away either. The real truth is that agents make you money, and in the case of our brokerage, we make AND SAVE you money.
We’re the best of both worlds. We’re not a large data company with often changing policies and no real personal connection with our service providers. We’re also not a large franchised brokerage that forces commission guidelines onto all of our associates. What separates Team Funke from other real estate teams is that we believe a fair deal is also an affordable one. Each deal is unique to it’s situation. So, we are now making these once exclusive, lower-commission deals available to our clients.
