A REALTOR is a licensed real estate salesperson who also belongs to the National Association of REALTORS. Many people believe that a REALTOR is another word for a real estate agent. However, this is not the case. If a real estate salesperson does not belong to the NAR, they cannot call themselves a REALTOR.
As a real estate agent, you make money in the form of a commission once a sale or rental deal closes. The commission usually equals a percentage of the purchase price, such as 5% or 6%. The total commission will get divided between the seller's and buyer's broker, who in turn, share the commission with the salesperson.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average real estate agent earns $50,300 each year, while the top 10% of real estate agents make over $110,000 per year. However, these statistics include both part-time and full-time agents. Real estate agents have unlimited earning potential.
A sponsoring broker is a real estate broker that employs a real estate salesperson. State law requires all real estate salespersons to work under a sponsoring broker. The sponsoring broker will actually hold the license of the real estate salesperson.
Here are the steps you should take to find a sponsoring broker: 1) Google brokers in your area. 2) Reach out to 10 brokers. 3) Schedule interviews with 4 or 5 of the brokers. 4) During the interview, ask them about commission splits and training. 5) Select the broker that best fits your career goals.
A real estate salesperson must work under a real estate broker. A real estate salesperson operates as a sub-agent to their sponsoring broker and can perform all of the duties of a broker. Once you get enough experience as a salesperson, you can qualify to take the broker's exam and get your broker's license.
Yes, you can use your real estate license whenever you wish, including part-time. In fact, many real estate licensees choose not to work full-time. As an independent contractor, your sponsoring broker cannot tell you how many hours you have to work.
