New York is one of the biggest and most populated cities in the world. The demand for housing is higher than the available units. RE/MAX is a new player in the local real estate scene and has put place in plans that will see it take the market by storm. These plans entail powering up local brokers in bid to gain a footing across the city. The company is predicting that the success it had in other areas such as Pennsylvania and England will be duplicated in the state.
How other Startups are Fairing on
Over the past half-decade, several upstarts have experienced remarkable growth since they entered the state’s real estate scene. These firms include Keller Williams, Rutenberg Realty, BOND New York and Town Residential
Keller Williams uses an eccentric business and profit-sharing model that gives brokers a 70 percent split of the commission so that they can recruit other brokers. Rutenberg splits the commission by half. Agents also keep 90 percent of the commission but resident brokers pay a monthly levy of 99 dollars. In return, they get office stationery and benefits from advertisement services. They also benefit from the company’s extensive network. The BOLD has grown terrifically and currently has more than 80 employees in its fold. It is in charge of one on the city’s exclusive properties, Moinian’s SKY.
