Real estate agents make their livings from their commissions. That’s why we get up early every weekend, when everyone else is relaxing, and get out there to pound the pavement. That’s why we work late at night, helping put sales together where one or both sides need assistance in some way. Of course, agents sign on with real estate brokerage companies to have some type of brand backing and access to listings, and the foundation of these deals is the commission payment.
Unfortunately, it seems that too many real estate brokerage companies are changing their deals with agents unilaterally, and we don’t think that’s right. Agents are the ones burning the midnight oil, showing those properties on Sunday afternoons and working tirelessly to complete sales. The role of the real estate brokerage companies at this stage is basically to wait and get paid their cut. eRealty Advisors is different. We do everything differently when compared to “traditional” real estate brokerage companies. You’ll see what we mean below.
Why Do Real Estate Brokerage Companies Change Deals With Their Agents?
It’s frustrating, but it’s not uncommon for real estate agents to suddenly find out that their commissions are changing. They didn’t get any notice that this could be happening, and they didn’t get any opportunity to discuss these changes. They just happened. Why? How? The short answer to these questions is that real estate brokerage companies are changing deals with their agents because they can.
The only thing the agent can really do in this situation is find another brokerage firm. Yes, these companies offer “reasons” like “poor performance,” a “failure to meet quota,” and other explanations, but the fact of the matter is that no one really knows for sure why this happens, but all that really matters is that it does.
