Are you ready to take your career to the next level?
Here is a testimonial:
Did you figure out that Capped Commissions, Profit Sharing, 100% Splits, or Affiliating with a Small Unbranded Brokerage is NOT the key to your success in real estate yet?
The Capped Commissions Promises: When capping broker fees were first introduced, it was as exciting. Everyone thought it was better than paying a big percentage to the broker on every deal.
Reality: “You mean at some point, I can be at 100% commission? Great! I need to move my license to that company. Oh wait, every year broker fees start all over. This is not working out very well because I am not doing as much business as I could, and I only get a deal or two at the 100% ”
Profit Sharing Promises: The recruiter says I can get a piece of the action. The splits are lower, but they say all I have to do is build a team and I will make more money.
Reality: “They told me come join us, and you will have profit sharing! Great, I get a piece of the action… but, I have to do what? Build a down line? That sounds like multi-level marketing. I want to list luxury homes not sell vitamins to my friends. So I have to drink the Kool aid and what else…? Recruit. Well, I tried recruiting team members, but I do not have any listings to generate buyer leads to give to my “team” and the one good agent I trained up left me to get a higher commission… she crashed and burned at the other company, but she is too proud to come back.”
The 100% Commission Promises: The recruiter told me “clients list and sell with me”, not my company. He said my old broker was making too much money off of me and I would take home more money at a 100% brokerage.
Reality: “I have no support, few consumers have heard of my company, and there are no marketing materials to help me get listings. When I compete against branded agents, they always get the listing unless I discount my commission. I have even lost listings in my sphere of influence. When you add up the fees it is definitely not 100%. I am not selling as much as before, and the nickel and dime stuff is killing me.”
Small Brokerage Promise: It is possible to “wear many hats” and operate with very little support and still have the time to offer excellent service to clients and “out prospect” your competition. It is smart to do it all myself because I have a better commission split, and branding does not matter to consumers.
Reality: “I am wasting my time doing legally required administrative tasks that make me no money. I wish I could delegate non-essential agent tasks to support staff to increase my productivity… but there is no one there to help me. Dedicated and skilled support staff could do a better job at their specialties like photography, brochure design, web-design, and transaction coordinating, but we are so small we can’t afford to hire anyone. I know I could be making much more money if I could just spend more of my time “prospecting & selling” and I am so tired of losing listings to branded agents… even when I have offered to cut my commission.”

The parent company of Coldwell Banker bought ZipRealty, so our agents now have the ZipRealty platform (Zap) which delivers leads from our corporate websites at no cost to you: www.ColdwellBanker.com, www.ColdwellBankerLuxury.com, and from our Facebook partnership via Social Ad Engine. Leads from your listings on these sources and your personal profile will be delivered into the Zap Platform. Here is a video so you can learn more about the system:

You’ll be set up and “ready to go” in our systems in as little as 7 days from joining our firm.
Fact #1: IF you have been considering another brokerage… they may have a few of these tools available, but the various vendors will charge you at least $200 per month… which is money you should be spending on prospecting for new clients.
Fact #2: IF you have been considering another brokerage… many of these tools are simply not available. And, lack of access to these tools puts you at a disadvantage compared to our agents! Even if you could create these tools, it will cost you thousands of dollars in set up expenses, hours of development time, and high monthly fees.
At Coldwell Banker – Campbell Realtors, we seek to build your skills and confidence so you have a “success mindset”… then we give you the best tech tools in the industry. We make it easy for you to do a good job for your clients, and we provide the training, tech tools, & marketing support so you can provide customer service which exceeds expectations.
