Did you know 8 in 10 brokerages are independents, and the majority of U.S. agents are working with these “indie” (independent) brokers?

A recent study by Inman found indie brokers choose to go on their own to get control of branding and technology, which gives them nimble, profitable businesses that can adapt quickly to local market conditions.

A big part of an indie broker’s profitability comes from the commission plans and structures it chooses to offer its agents. Since office sizes are typically smaller, they can’t survive on 90/10 commission splits.

So how do they do it? Join us for the next Select Audio Live session on Tuesday, Sept. 15, as we take a look at the commission plans and structure from an actual indie broker.

This session is in high demand. Claim your spot!


During this session, Garry Wise and Chris Scott from The Paperless Agent will discuss what they’re doing at their brokerage in Austin, Texas, including:

  • Different types of commission structures they’ve tested. What works? What doesn’t?
  • How to get agents to agree to lower splits by giving them something they really want.
  • How to increase the overall profitability of your firm.

“Get an Insider’s Look at Indie Broker Commission Plans” is for brokers (big or small), team leaders, managers — and agents who aspire to run a brokerage of their own.

Commission plans are a hot topic for brokers right now, in light of competitive forces in the market.
