Does Remax offer different levels of splits/fees other than their traditional 95/5?

Wow, Former KW Team what an interesting perspective. We are currently being recruited and this is an eye opener. I am familiar with Chad and are even "facebook" friends lol but did not know the behind the scenes stuff. If you have time shoot me an email or give me a call as I would have more questions to ask. We are in Canada so no real threat there, Cheers.

Chad McBain, in my 5 years with KW, I haven't seen any of this stuff that Former KW is talking about.  I am 4 year member of the ALC (board of directors) for our office.  Of course,  we have had to let people go. Most of the people we let go are non producing agents that NEVER come in to the office to take advantage of all of the quality training & coaching we have. These people end up costing the company money. They are good people just not ready or cut out for running their own business.

  This is the first I have heard of KW offices letting high producing teams go because of complaining lower producers. Frankly it doesn't make business sense. There is a total possibility the issue is w/the leadership w/in that specific office.

  My recommendation to anybody checking out any company is to go meet w/the leadership team. You will know by the end of the meeting if you are a good fit. Also, do what you are doing now by researching posts like this but, you must be careful what you read. The scenario Former KW Team is talking about could be true for their office but take blanket statements like that with a grain of salt. Go check out your local KW offices and see if its a fit for you.

  If KW was so bad would we have been the only company in the top 4 to grow from 2008-2009??  dont forget what kind of market we had in those years.  Thanks to the forward thinking of our top people. They helped to prepair us for the shifting market.

Hi Greg, you make good and obvious points. I think FKWT stated that the events were in some offices but not all. It was interesting as I had never heard that part of the Goldwasser story before thats all. I know enough former RE/MAX teams that can verify these types of things should we need to. That being said we will be staying put for now as we like our broker and are treated well. KW also has decided to wait before opening an office in our city so the point is moot for the time being.  However I do like the perceived KW atmosphere and will continue to read outfront magazine when I can get a copy (love it). Cheers.

Hi everyone,

I've been reading a lot of blog and post regarding the real estate company to help me decide which company should I start with as a new comer. The more I read..the more I put myself in dilemma and confused. I guess, the only way to get to know how these companies and their agents perform is by just pick one and learned while I am cruising.

I like to join this company with the following deal. Is it too much or ok for me as a new agent? Please advice. I feel it's hard for me to swallow but since I have low risk..I like to give a try.

option#1

desk fee=$0

split=50/50  up to $25,000 cap then 70/30

startup cost=$700

 

option#2

desk fee=$400

split=70/30 up to $17,000 cap then 95/5

startup cost=$700

 

 

option#3 - my suggestion/offer to broker

desk fee=$0

split=80 to broker..20 to me up to $15,000 cap then 95 for me..5 for them

startup cost=$700

 

Thank you.

New Comer
