1 when A brokerage takes YOUR $$ in commission splits, you REMAIN just another very small fish in their corporate bowl. veri brokers keep 100% OF THEIR COMMISSIONS.
2 We re VERI Different Sure, we are having some fun with the goldfish, but understand for virtually all brokerages, real estate is all about the next deal instead of what is best for your business or your clients. Commission Splits are how traditional brokerages make their money. It is how they limit your business. It is how they control the marketplace. Not at VERI. We start from the simple philosophy that by providing an environment that allows our brokers (YOU) to keep 100% of their income gives them a unique opportunity to improve their lives and impact their clients, and we build from there. Our focus is on making the process of growing your business easier, less stressful. More personal. More satisfying. We strive to make working here VERI personal. VERI satisfying. VERI fun. And, of course, VERI financially rewarding. Become more than just another small fish in a brokerage bowl. What We Believe WE WANT TO CHANGE LIVES \ as real estate professionals our duty is to serve our clients in their new chapter of life. We exist to help our clients in their journey Lorrie Lucero Lorrie Lucero Managing Broker Real Estate tm tm Very Very local. Very personal. VERI Colorado. Our Mission: We help create lives that brokers want to grown into by expertly using traditional and digital communication strategies to help them build strong, referral-driven businesses. While simple and intuitive, this sphere-first approach is the key to long term profitability for our brokers. MORE THAN CLIENTS \ every relationship, whether personal or professional, is first and foremost a relationship that needs to be honored and nurtured. A NEW WAY TO DO AN OLD THING \ real estate is not new, but, by first focusing on people instead of property, we have the opportunity to change our industry. AUTHENTICITY \ in our communication. in our company. in our commitment to transparency.
3 We re VERI Different For virtually all brokerages, real estate is all about the next deal. Only minutes after each agents closing, they have hands extended (directly into their bank account) as the quest for their full-share of the proverbial commission split has their attention. And to make it worse, individual agents are more than happy to hand over 10%, 20%, even 50% of their hard-earned money. Money that should go to their own families now ends up in the bank roll of the giant firm. Ever ask, For What? Sure, they tell you that their logo gets the deals, that their training makes the difference, their guidance makes your business. Don t believe It! When a brokerage controls your money through a commission split scheme, they control you.
4 Our brokers are cut from a different cloth. A little more denim and a little less silk. This is Colorado after all! But, but, it s more than that. We are about helping our brokers get to the next level, not about helping ourselves to the next commission split. In short, when our brokers do VERI well, so do we. UNIQUELY PERSONAL, VERI REWARDING The HIDDEN Truth Exposed Many years ago, national logos and a big firm presence made minor impacts in the businesses of individual brokers and of course the commission split was born as a revenue generating scheme for stale pictures of a red balloon, blue box, or green tree. As technology has improved, home buyers and sellers have become more savvy. Consumers find little value in company brands and greater value with individual brokers who provide a more personal approach. This shift has already occurred, but most brokerages haven t changed their agent compensation schemes to accommodate. It is our belief that because YOU are the biggest value to a home buyer or seller, you should NEVER pay a brokerage old-fashioned commission splits, but receive 100% of YOUR commission on each and every transaction.
