Join our team at AgentInOttawa.com as an Associate Agent, work with Buyers Sellers and Investors. We require a few Realtors who are willing to learn, work hard, and have a positive outlook to join our growing team.
We excel at lead generation and have new leads every day to follow-up with, that's where you come in. You convert warm leads into clients. They contact us first and you should follow up by phone, email, and texting, in your daily prospecting.
Our new Associate Agents may also be promoted & trained as listing agents and/or be trained to deal with investors of multi unit buildings, if desired.
Most agents are not on a Salary, but are paid on a commission basis, and the average commission based salary would likely be around $70,000 Gross, based on 7 or 8 sales per year.
Just to let you know, there are a high percentage of Agents that sell 3 or less homes each year, for a Gross Income under $30,000.
Speaking from personal experience, an Agent can expect to make between $100,000 - $150,000 if they are working with a team that provides a constant supply of quality leads. Agents on our team consistently earn in excess of $100,000.
As a solo agent, you will need to work hard and prospect to find enough people wanting to buy or sell to make a good living. If you are great at prospecting your income could be unlimited.
This depends on the Brokerage the Agent works for, and also if they are a solo Agent or working on a Team. However, the typical Gross Commission on the sale of a house is 2.5%.
This depends on the Brokerage. Our company is lucrative in that it begins at a 70/30 split but when the "cap" threshold is reached, the agent keeps 100%. Some brokerages do not have maximum thresholds and the agent must pay a high split on all sales.
As an example, if an Agent sells a house at $400,000, the commission at 2.5% would be $10,000, with 13% HST added on top of that. If they have not capped, the agent would pay their Broker $3000 and keep $7000 within our Company, and Once they Cap, they would keep the entire $10,000 minus some admin fees.
Most Agents don't but sometimes an administrative assistant who does some licensed agent work may get an hourly payment.
