How Real Estate Agents earn 100% Commission at Keller Williams

CapperEarn 100% Commission at Keller Williams

Real estate agents at Keller Williams realty in Trumbull, CT. routinely earn 100% commission with a very simple plan to accomplish that milestone.  The plan is that agents pay a standard split to their commission whereby they pay a percent to the broker and they keep the rest until they hit a 'cap', or a limit on the amount they pay the broker.  Once the 'cap' limit is reached, agents keep all their commission - 100% for the remainder of their capping year.

There are certain benefits to having a 'cap' as an agent in a Keller Williams office that are not obvious to an agent working at another agency that I'll identify.  Specifically, the split!  Many agents considering a move to a new agency are often concerned with how their commission is split with their new broker.  The more they pay the office, the less they get to keep.  It goes to say that if an agent currently earns a 70/30 split where they are now and they are considering a move, they are very interested in the split at the new broker...right?  Clearly, the less I pay to the broker, the more I earn.... Right?  Well, maybe not entirely true.

Try this on for a moment.  At Keller Williams in Trumbull, we don't care about your split if you're a capping agent.  We care only that you will contribute a 'capping' amount to the office and afterwhich, you keep 100%.  For example, if you subscribed to our 'standard' split of 70% to the agent and 30% to the broker and you capped in 4 months, you would receive 100% commission for the remaining 8 months of your capping year.  Alternatively, if you wanted to increase your split to 85% agent and 15% to the broker, you can arrange that and cap in 8 months instead and then earn 100% for 4 months.  If you wanted instead to change your split to be 90% agent and 10% broker, you could configure that and cap in a full year.  It doesn't matter to the broker at all.  It's your money and you decide how you handle your splits.  If you are an agent at Keller Williams that has not capped yet, your standard split to the office is 30% and you keep 70%.  There is no requirement to cap at the standard split. 

So as an agent, it becomes extremely easy to determine how much money you will make once you cap.  You simply figure out what your gross commission is before you pay anything to the office, then subtract your 'cap' from that amount and you keep all the rest.  It's yours!  Why not, you earned it!
