Almost all sponsoring brokers will expect you to generate your own leads and referrals in New York. That can be quite tough even for the most active socialites as there are over 50,000 licensed real estate agents in NYC competing for your business. How do you stand a chance as a new agent against so many sharks in the water?
Just remember, it doesn’t matter what firm you join or how high a commission split a firm is offering if you don’t have anything to work on. A 100% commission split of zero is still just zero. Do you really want to solely rely on cold calling your friends and family when you first start? How will you convince anyone to work with you when you have no deal experience or exclusive listings to show off?
Mont Sky Real Estate is the only firm that offers agents the ability to work on vetted buyers and sellers. We don’t believe in handing out cold leads and random phone numbers to new agents to cold call. That’s always a waste of money and time and doesn’t exactly help a new agent build confidence. All of Mont Sky’s company clients are already working with us to some degree, whether it’s a buyer who has already agreed to work with us after an initial call with a senior broker, or a seller who has just signed an exclusive listing agreement with us. As a new agent, you will have the opportunity to work side by side with a senior broker on one of the company’s sales deals. You should view this as the best way for you to learn and to gain valuable real world experience. Furthermore, you will also have the opportunity to earn a discretionary commission split for your assistance on any company deals.
