If you’re currently a real estate agent and are considering making a change, May & Company would welcome you aboard with the best commission splits in the region and dedicated office and meeting space available to you. Your split would depend on your experience, production, and level of autonomy (see below for explanation and splits). There are no franchise fees, or any other fees to pay (other than your licensing, insurance, and realtor association fees)
New Agents or Those Considering Becoming and Agent:
If you’re considering becoming a new agent, we can definitely help with plenty of advice, guidance, and even providing leads to you. If you’d like more information please contact our broker, Kevin May.
Associate brokers with team members commission splits are 95/5 and your split cap is $5,000.00 per year. You receive one third of the broker split received by the company from your team members. That means that your team members make the same split as all the other agents in the company, and there is NO DISADVANTAGE to being on your team. Associate brokers are not eligible to receive company generated leads.
Experienced agents (more than one year experience) are eligible for the following:
- 85/15 commission split.
- $15,000.00 per year cap on self generated business (not originating from a company lead).
- If the commission originated from a company provided lead there is a 10% lead fee.
Agents with less than one year experience have the choice of the above options, but require a “mentor” who will receive 10% of your gross commission. You can change your mentor at any time, but must have a mentor through your first year, or 10 transactions, whichever comes later.
- Your mentor is an agent or associate broker of your choosing who is currently licensed under our company, has at least 2 years of experience, at least 3 million dollars in total transactions, and 15 total historical transactions. They will assist with how and why things are done in a particular way, best practices, client handling, legal requirements, and much more.
Buyer’s agents whose clients purchase a home listed by a May & Company agent or broker receive a 10% higher proportion of the generated commission. For example, if your normal split is 85/15, for this transaction it would be 95/5!
There is a 3% advertising fund fee that goes directly and exclusively towards the cost of promoting the company through various forms of advertising. This includes television, radio, print, direct mail, sponsorships, etc.
Agents and brokers are encouraged to make suggestions on where these dollars are spent. They are spent with total transparency so that you know exactly where the money is going. At half the price of most franchise fees, we believe we can deliver twice the effectiveness of operating under a franchise umbrella.
We are working to build a system to generate and distribute company generated leads. These leads will come from various sources including our website, direct mailers, zillow, trulia, realtor.com, homes.com, etc. Leads will be managed and maintained by a full time staff, and leads that generate a commission will require a 10% lead generation fee, in addition to the broker split. Commissions generated by company leads are not subject to the split cap. 100% of the funds generated by the lead generation fee will either go to buying more leads, or to the lead generation staff. The lead generation is in place only to generate more business for our agents, the company does not make a profit from the lead generation fee.
We distribute leads based on geographic area (zip codes). We do a round-robin approach to distributing leads within a zip code. We feel that lead generation is extremely expensive, and this is a much more logical approach to lead generation than each agent paying for it monthly.
