My goal is to provide the busy agent with a flexible, virtual environment that nurtures collaboration and a higher level of education, while providing leadership and support to promote their professional and personal growth.

There are typically 2 reasons that agents leave a brokerage.

  1. Lack of quality leadership – Either the Broker isn’t available when you need them, or even worse… they don’t have your back when you REALLY need them.
  2. The Money – Profitability is not just what you pay out of each commission. It’s about how much your paying out in junk fees, and how high your cap is.  But even more importantly… It’s about how successful you are, or can be, in the right environment.

We keep the fees low, and the caps low because we work with dedicated professionals that are growing their referral based business… this isn’t just a training center, although we have training… or where you go when you retire simply because it’s cheap.  Our costs take into consideration that this is where you’ll be for years to come, creating comradery with your fellow agents, and growing your brand, with consistency for years to come.

When it comes to broker support, you get more than the typical, spotty, 9-5 access. The Broker is here to support you 7 days a week from eyes open to eyes shut.  Every busy agent can tell you that Broker support is crucial when you need it… and it can be detrimental to your business, to not have the right support when you NEED it.

The Important Stuff

The Costs

Experienced agents will be on a 90/10 split, capping out at $8500 for the year. In addition, you’ll have a $50 Risk management fee to cover E&O.

If you’re new, don’t worry… we have a great mentor program that will allow you to quickly get trained, and selling real estate in no time. You have the option to train with one of our experienced agents, or go through a virtual, self paced, training and get straight to work. Set up an appointment to discuss this split with a mentor.

Our Office fee of $50 per month covers all of your systems and tools, training and meetings. 

That’s it… simple, low costs to keep your income in your pocket.

More on Broker Support

My name is Serena Hope Jones. I have been a licensed agent since 2011. My passion has been on helping clients at a higher level, and helping Agents who want to help their clients at a higher level.  Over the years, I’ve taken every class I could get my hands on, I’ve networked with the best in the business, I’ve volunteered on committees, I’ve even started a real estate school, to help raise the level of quality in Continuing Education. 

I made a point to learn everything I could about this business and how we could make it better, which essentially lead me to opening my own brokerage in January of 2017.  Since then, my passion for helping agents grow only grown stronger. I’ve focused on helping my agents get business, by promoting them, not just the brokerage. I’ve helped agents through many challenges and hurdles in their business, as well as their lives. 

My goal was to be more than just the broker that checked for signatures on each page of a contract. I want to educate, and empower my agents to be the best they can be. I want to help them grow a successful business, and help them maintain a healthy life/work balance. 

Your clients are the life blood of your business, so when you have a challenge, I’m there to help, and fight when necessary. I’m not the kind of broker to simply look for the fastest, easiest fix to make problems go away… I will fight tooth and nail for what’s right, because I know that’s the kind of broker support you’re looking for!  The straight forward, easy deals will come and go… but it’s when things get tough, that you KNOW you’re paying for a quality brokerage and quality support.

No matter how cheap your fees or splits… if you’re not getting collaboration, growth and FULL support when YOU need it… You’re over paying.
