United Real Estate Lands on Inc. 5000 List Third Year in a Row!

  • View post

To be included once again on the Inc. 5000 list is an incredible accomplishment for United Real Estate. What began as a single real estate office in July of 2011 in Dallas, Texas, has become a testament to how seeing things differently in business can allow you to reap big rewards. The real estate market looked vastly different in 2011 and 2012 when we were preparing the company to grow nationwide. And let’s not forget that in 2012, 43 percent of all home sales were either a short sale or a foreclosure. From having a difficult time selling a home to now having a difficult time finding a home for sale, we have seen dramatic shifts in the real estate market in a short period of time. As a company, United Real Estate continues to move forward full force with commitment to invest and innovate, making certain that we remain a modern, relevant brokerage that is the preferred choice for productive real estate agents and their customers.

While the market continues to change, what has remained constant is the vision we had when we first launched United Real Estate. The vision to build a market-leading full-service 100 percent commission real estate company is thriving and becoming a reality through our ever growing franchise network. No longer do agents have to choose between paying high fees for the support they need to grow their business or working for 100 percent commission with very limited support. At United, our agents are provided the focused support they need with very low fees, all while receiving 100 percent of their commission. Behind our growth is a commitment from all of our employees, brokers, managers and franchise owners aligning with three success principals.

Our first success principal passion.  Our company as a whole is really passionate about our business and works to keep that passion at the forefront of our decisions every day. We are passionate about helping agents achieve personal financial freedom in their real estate careers. United Real Estate operates on the belief that agents are entrepreneurs and if we develop our agents and assist them in creating the business and lifestyle they desire, they will transform United Real Estate into the market leader.

The second success principle is an understanding of what drives our economics. Transaction volume from our agents drives our economics. The company makes money when our agents make money. This aligns everyone in the organization with the same end goal to make certain our agents have the support they need to sell more real estate. We see the success of this principal in our established offices where over 90 percent of their agents are productive.

Lastly, the third principle is an understanding of where we excel in our business and industry. At United Real Estate, we excel at recruiting productive real estate agents. Our rising recruitment of quality agents is the combination of our passion to help agents succeed with the economics of our business model. We warmly welcome the 100+ agents that join our offices each month.

The combined commitments of many people have allowed us to help our agents not only make more money, but create a better lifestyle for themselves and their families. I fondly remember speaking with an agent who joined United during our first year and stating to me, “Thanks Peter, you and United have made it worthwhile for me to sell more real estate.” This statement encompasses the United vision and our culture. It tells the story behind our mission and core belief that our agents are entrepreneurs. Simply put when our agents succeed, United succeeds.

100 Percent Commission Model Works for Agents and Clients

  • SONY DSC

It’s common for real estate franchises to have brokers and agents split the commission on each transaction, ranging from 50/50 to 80/20. With United Real Estate, our agents receive 100 percent commission on each transaction they complete.

Our 100 percent real estate commission works well for both the agent and client. Agents work even harder to find the right home for a client and help them get approved for a home loan. Our commission model also provides agents with a big morale boost because it’s a way to acknowledge all of the hard work they do in marketing properties and assisting clients. Agents only have to pay a low office fee per month and a small transaction fee for each side, which is a much better deal than handing over up to 50 percent of the commission they’ve earned to a broker. Clients benefit from this model by having a reliable agent who has their best interests at heart during the buying process, from getting a pre-approval to closing on a home. Our commission model is just one of the many benefits we offer.

Joining a franchise helps real estate agents gain experience as part of a nationally recognized brand. One of the drawbacks of belonging to one of these groups, however, is having to give a certain percentage of commission to a broker. You don’t have to worry about this with our company, though.

United Real Estate stands out among other real estate franchises thanks to our 100 percent commission model. Our agents get to keep their commission instead of splitting it with a broker, giving them even more incentive to provide exceptional service. Our company is also expanding rapidly, leading to more and more opportunities for agents to join one of our already established franchises or open a new one. Some of the other advantages that our franchise model provides include:

  • You don’t have to pay advertising or royalty fees.
  • You gain access to a comprehensive technology solution to help build your business.
  • You become part of one of the best franchises for customer satisfaction.
  • You’ll have a protected office territory.
  • You’ll have access to new, up-to-date training for managers and agents.
