Why join the Cornerstone Real Estate team?
It's simple really, give yourself a raise, you deserve it!
It’s your effort, your negotiations, your hard work. Why split your commission when you are getting little to nothing for it. I joined a name brand real estate firm in 2002. At first I was like most real estate agents who just got their license. I was excited and eager to get started in the real estate business. Not to knock the large franchise companies there is a place for them. I received my basic training with them that set me up to be a great realtor. After years in the business, I realized that I really wasn’t getting anything back on my return on investment (my commission split to my office). You see when I really thought about it, I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in commission splits for basic supplies and assistance that I could have paid on my own for pennies on the dollar. What was I getting, business cards, a yard sign, a free website that did not generate any new leads just a way for people to check me out, data entry for my listings, an office desk that I never used and an office meeting maybe once a month. Once you sit down and do the math these things do not cost any where near the amount of money I was giving them. Business card are 1000 for $50 professionally done 2 sided. Yard signs are 5 for $40 each. They now have vinyl sign post that are only $75 easy to install any one can do it. Use it over and over, they last for a very long time, you will probably never have to replace it. I don’t know if you priced out website lately but they’re very inexpensive and many of the do it yourself sites are free. I found that I never use the office. When I meet my customers I meet them at the house or a coffee shop. E&O is important that’s why Cornerstone covers your e&o insurance and data entry on all your listings.
From day one at Cornerstone Real Estate you will be giving yourself a raise. The average commission split for an agent today is around 70/30 with their office. Not to mention other office fees such as E&O insurance, corporate fee, desk fee, etc...that reduce the amount of money you bring home even further. Take for example an average commission for a home that sells for $250,000. The average agent is taking home $5250 minus any other office fees. At Cornerstone you will take home the entire commission check of $7500 minus a $500 brokerage fee. That’s it nothing else. No I gotchas, no desk fee, no e&o fee, no transaction fees. Nothing else. That’s a $2500 raise just on that one deal. That right there is enough to get most real estate agents excited about being a Cornerstone Real Estate team member!
