Attention New York City Agents:

Why join a brokerage that doesn't offer you leads?

We are New York City’s most agent friendly brokerage offering flexible commission splits up to 100%, buyer and seller leads on demand as well as best-in-class agent tools and technology

What you Receive:

Up to 100% commission split

NYC agents on our 100% commission split plan will receive exactly that – 100% of every commission dollar earned. We don’t believe you should have to share your winnings with your managing broker just because he or she is, well, your managing broker.

Access to REBNY Listing Service (RLS)

We’re a REBNY Member Firm which means you’ll have full access to the RLS so you can offer your buyer and seller clients full exposure to the NYC real estate broker community as well as access to the REBNY co-broked listings database.

Errors and Omissions Insurance

All our agents receive complimentary & automatic Errors and Omissions insurance included with membership with the firm. Unlike other brokerages where you’d have to pay for this on your own, we’ve simplified things by making it all inclusive with your dues.

Sales leads on demand

Experienced agents will have full access to our proprietary lead generation platform which puts you in touch with real buyers and sellers. Once you receive a lead, we’ll expect you to take it from there. New agents can partner with senior agents on leads.

Private Nestio account for CRM, listing syndication and search

You will receive a personal Nestio account upon joining the firm. It will allow you to syndicate listings under your name and also manage your contacts through Nestio’s cutting edge CRM lead management software.

Private corporate email and cloud storage

Our agents benefit from private corporate email accounts as well as cloud storage. From document signing to secure messaging, everything is mobile friendly.

No hidden desk or monthly fees

Our agent plans are simple and straightforward without any hidden transaction fees, desk fees, software fees or any other fees or fine print. Keep 100% commission for $399/month or keep 75% commission for $129/month. We won’t ask you for anything more.

All REBNY member benefits and rewards

We are a REBNY Member Firm, and as a member of our team you will receive full access to the REBNY community, benefits, events and discounts. Welcome to the largest real estate association in New York City!

World class in-house broker, operational and tech support

We offer our agents comprehensive in-house broker, operational and technical support. Your questions are never more than just a phone call or email away from being answered.

What's the point of joining a brokerage that doesn't give you something to do?

Yet that is exactly how the rest of the traditional brokerage community operates. Agents are expected to source all of their clients, execute the entire deal on their own and then receive only 30-50% of the commission. That doesn’t sound fair to us at all!

At Mont Sky, experienced agents can choose to take on exclusive sale listings and buyer referrals sourced from our proprietary lead generation platform. If you’re experienced and capable, you’ll never lack something to work on with us.

Furthermore, you’ll never have to worry about hidden charges disguised as “transaction fees” or “desk fees” for an office you may never use or anything else that is code word for you having to pay extra money out of pocket. We include many features which most brokerages charge extra for such as Errors and Omissions Insurance and REBNY (RLS) listings search & syndication software.

Receive Verified Sales Leads

We offer our agents the opportunity to work with verified NYC buyer and seller leads which are sourced via our in-house, proprietary lead generation platform. Regardless of how large or small your current book of business is, when you join us you can expect to grow your existing client base through our referrals.

In NYC the average sale price is north of $2,000,000 which means each lead gives you both the potential for an significant commission as well as greater earnings down the road through referrals offered by the relationships you’ve built with these clients.

Over time, we actively seek to reward agents who have demonstrated high conversion rates with additional leads.

All Inclusive - No Hidden Fees

Our agents never have to worry about being charged hidden fees or receiving the run around from the Managing Broker when it’s time to get paid a commission. Our agents are guaranteed to be paid their earned commission within 10 business days of closing a sale. There’s no waiting until month end or worrying about having to constantly chase your Managing Broker to remind him about the money he owes you. Furthermore, our commission splits are extremely clear.

How to Become a Real Estate Agent in NYC:

Step 1: Complete a 75 hour New York State approved class

Although getting your real estate salesperson’s license in New York isn’t too difficult, you absolutely must be licensed in order to become a real estate agent in NYC.  The first step is to find a New York State approved real estate course to fulfill your mandatory 75 hours pre-licensing education requirement.  You can often take this course online at your own pace for under $100.  However, some may find it helpful to attend a more structured, in-person course and to be able to network with others looking to become a real estate agent in NYC.

Step 2: Pass the New York State Real Estate Salesperson Exam

This written exam is multiple choice and 90 minutes long with a minimum passing score of 70%.  You must schedule your appointment online by first creating an eAccessNY account.  You must bring with you to the exam a valid, current, government issued photo ID along with a print-out of the “Summary of Your Submission” confirmation page from eAccessNY.  After the exam you will be able to view your score on eAccessNY.

The New York City exam location is currently 123 William Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10038.  You should schedule your exam at least 2 weeks in advance if you’re looking to become a real estate agent in NYC and 1 week in advance for the rest of New York.

Step 3: Find a sponsoring broker to work with

The most important decision for someone looking to become a real estate agent in NYC comes down to deciding which brokerage to work with.  As you’ll learn from your real estate licensing course, a real estate salesperson must work under the supervision of a licensed broker.  It is illegal for any salesperson to receive compensation from a client directly; rather, the real estate commission must be paid to the licensed broker or brokerage.  The salesperson will typically work for a brokerage under an independent contractor agreement and be paid by the brokerage according to the commission split they’ve agreed upon.  You will have to choose a brokerage based on a variety of competing factors: what you want to specialize in (commercial, residential, sales, rentals or leasing), the commission split, tools, leads, marketing and support.

Residential Sales

We specialize in residential sales at Mont Sky and provide you with free leads and best-in-class technology to ensure your success.  Residential sales commissions average 5-6% in New York City, with half typically being split if there is a buyer’s agent involved.  With average property values of $1.73 million that equates to just over $100,000 for the typical real estate commission check.

Residential Rentals

Agents starting out often prefer to work on rentals because they are typically quicker and easier to close.  However, the commission is typically much smaller at 15% of total annual rent. Agents are free to pursue rentals at Mont Sky and utilize our best-in-class search, CRM and listing syndication software through Nestio.  Through our partners at Nestio, we have access to a live, proprietary database of rental listings directly updated by thousands of NYC property managers so that our agents often see new listings long before anyone else.

Commercial Sales and Leasing

Commercial ranges from Class A trophy skyscrapers in Midtown Manhattan to any residential real estate with greater than 4 units (apartment buildings or multi-family properties).  These type of transactions are more specialized than your typical residential sale and usually require more experience.  There is no standard commission for a commercial deal and fees are negotiated on a case by case basis.  We are building a world class, international commercial real estate team at Mont Sky.  With proprietary deal flow from China to the Middle East, Mont Sky is well positioned to take a leading role in the future of the real estate capital of the world – New York City.
