We know we’re not for every agent. We’re only for those who want to separate themselves from their competition, who want to specialize in working with buyers and sellers of lifestyle properties, and who are looking for tools and resources that are different from their local MLS, and the ‘same old, same old’ marketing strategies that are used for traditional residential real estate.
By affiliating with Michigan Lifestyle Properties, your lifestyle real estate practice will stand out from all the rest in your marketplace. Here are 12 key differentiators:
1. Ability to Charge Higher Commissions Because of Our Unique Marketing
- Time and again, we’re able to charge commissions that are higher than market rates, because our clients recognize that they get what they pay for, and we’re able to market their properties better than our competitors.
2. Generous Commission Splits
- Our commission splits are very competitive relative to those offered by other brokers. Our commission schedule is simple and easy to understand. We do pay a well justified royalty to United Country Real Estate for their unqiue value proposition, but we’ve ‘baked’ that royalty into the ‘company dollar’ in our commission splits.
