Over the years, the compensation arrangements between brokers and sales associates have been splits ranging between 50/50 to a percentage of 70/30. This traditional approach benefits the owner/broker, and most sales associates believe they must accept these heavy reductions into their earnings in order to successfully practice real estate.
This program works fine until the sales associate actually determines how much of the sales commission goes to the broker. It is a revealing process!
Most associates feel the amount of money going to compensate the owner/broker tips the scale to an unfair balance. Brokers feel that the rising cost of labor is an unfair burden at a time when company margins are shrinking to an all time low. We see a struggle over assets and a never ending cycle of fee and compensation negotiations. Many sales associates begin the search for other options.
Sales associates may try to negotiate a better split with their brokers. Others consider the desk fee or 100% commission offices. Many are shocked to find “so-called” 100% commission offices entail tremendous charges for desk and office space. Combined with marketing costs and other expenses, the sales associate's monthly overhead goes through the roof. Those hard earned commissions disappear through monthly charges and what was thought to be a 100% commission deal becomes a 70/30 split at best.
