What's The Average Salary
For A New Agent?
A simple question with such a complex answer... There's no question that real estate is unique in the sense that it is one of the only careers where you can become licensed in an incredibly short period of time and dive right into production on day one with
NO LIMIT to what you can earn.
The average salary has so many moving parts and differs from market centre to market centre. Some of the industry factors that play a role in a real estate salesperson's salary are the following.
Average sale price in your area
Your target market
Marketing & business expenses
Are you full-time or part-time?
Your market centre CAP amount
Do you specialize in residential or commercial properties
Realistically, most of those are outside our control... However, the most crucial factors we face daily that directly influence a real estate professional's salary are our own habits and limiting beliefs.
The sky really is the limit in this industry, and there is no ceiling to building lasting generational wealth with a strong foundation and the proper support.

What Are Commission Splits?
For every commission check you receive there is a split in place with your market centre that contributes to the operating costs of that market centre. As a Keller Williams agent, regardless of your experience you operate on a 70% / 30% split of your commission with your market centre.
70% goes to you
30% to the market centre > company dollar until you've capped
What Is Capping?
Each market centre has a max dollar amount for company dollar collected through the 30% deducted from your commission split. Once you've surpassed your market centre's cap dollar amount, you've CAPPED!
Once you've CAPPED, your split then changes from 70%/30% to the entire 100% to you... This means you are no longer required to pay any company dollar from your commissions for the remainder of your anniversary year.
The industry has and will continue to evolve as time goes on, but the need for housing and for industry professionals to facilitate these transactions will continue to be an essential part of real estate.
We saw this during the global pandemic when real estate professionals across the country were deemed essential as the way the world does business changed. More people are working from home which has led to a wave of working professionals and families realizing their dreams and goals while migrating to more comfortable properties outside of the larger congested cities.
The real estate market shifts, that's a fact. Being able to proactively adapt during these shifts is what will allow us to build recession-proof businesses that continue to thrive and grow while continuing to serve our clients at the absolute highest level.
