W H Y R O B E R T S B R OT H E R S ?

ON BEHALF OF OUR ENTIRE TEAM, WE ARE

honored

THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING US!

If you decide to join our team, my hope is that you will find that the same principles that guided us in the Roberts family garage in 1946 continue to propel us today. Each of us has been entrusted with what most companies spend millions of dollars trying to achieve: the most respected and recognizable brand in our industry. The work you will do day-in and day-out to service your customers will shape our brand – and, ultimately, your likelihood of success.

OUR NUMBER ONE PRINCIPLE ABOVE ALL ELSE IS THAT

culture matters

What is “CULTURE?” For Roberts Brothers, it’s everything. There’s no doubt that the technology and tools that we offer impact success or failure. Please remember, however, that these resources pale as compared to the importance of the way our PEOPLE feel. A supportive, respectful, and professionally fun office environment should be our goal every day. What you do, what you say, and the enthusiasm you exhibit matters!

more! BIGGER

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT COMMISSIONS

5 REASONS WHY ROBERTS BROTHERS AGENTS EARN MORE #1

SUCCESS BREEDS SUCCESS

The largest percentage of top producers on either side of the Bay are with Roberts Brothers. Some say it’s the culture. Others say it’s the tools that help them work more efficiently. In any case, successful agents like to be around other successful agents. Being around the top producers in the industry will increase your likelihood of achieving your goals!

#2

A BIGGER LISTING INVENTORY MEANS A BIGGER PAYCHECK TO YOU!

Regardless of whether you’re in Baldwin or Mobile County, when the Listing Broker generates a higher commission percentage than the Buyer’s Broker that means more money in your pocket!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Example A

Example B

Property Listed in Mobile

Property Listed in Baldwin County

Assumptions: • Sales Price of the Home = $200,000

Assumptions: • Sales Price of the Home = $200,000

• Commission Rate = 6% ($12,000)

• Commission Rate = 6% ($12,000)

• When the listing broker would receive 3.8% ($7,600) and the buyer’s broker would receive 2.2% ($4,400)

• When the listing broker would receive 3.6% ($7,200) and the buyer’s broker would receive 2.4% ($4,800)

If you’re a Roberts Brothers agent working with a buyer, chances are you will be selling another Roberts Brothers listing. That’s because we have the highest listing inventory in the market.

If you’re a Roberts Brothers agent working with a buyer, chances are you will be selling another Roberts Brothers listing. That’s because we have one of the highest listing inventories in the market.

When you sell another Roberts Brothers listing, then you are getting paid out of a bigger pot. In this case, you would receive your plateau based on 3% of the commission instead of 2.2%. That’s an increase of $1,600!

When you sell another Roberts Brothers listing, then you are getting paid out of a bigger pot. In this case, you would receive your plateau based on 3% of the commission instead of 2.4%. That’s an increase of $1,200!


#3

7 % OF SIX FIGURES MEANS MORE MONEY!

Last year, over 34% of our Listings closed at a commission rate of 7% or higher. This is more than any other company in the marketplace (and it’s not even close). Our agents know their value as Listing Agents and are able to articulate it to our customers. When you sell an in-house listing at 7%, then it means more money in your pocket!

#4

MORE AGENTS + MORE TECHNOLOGY + MORE ENERGY = MORE SALES!

Being around the most active group of full-time, career minded professionals in the business generates more opportunities for you! Real Estate is a PASSION. You don’t grow personally or professionally in isolation. Our offices are buzzing every day with agents that are talking about listing, buying, property management, relocation, eLeads, and ways to grow their businesses. Exposure to this kind of environment is sure to enhance your own career. Let us connect you with your PASSION!

#5

A COMPETITIVE COMPENSATION PLAN WITH NO FRANCHISE FEE

Many of our competitors charge a franchise fee to use their name. Their agents pay this assessment and split a percentage with their national franchise. Roberts Brothers will never charge a franchise fee because we own the Roberts Brothers name!

Customers have a lot of faith in that yellow and black sign in their yards. They're willing to pay more for it because they know it works. That lets you start at 7% and go from there, if necessary.
