Business Description

Provide reliable cash flow to real estate brokers/agents

The business: We buy real estate brokers’ commissions 1-2 months before closing by offering them a “commission advance”. Our fee is 10-20% of the gross commission and this office has a 90% repeat business rate, we work from anywhere, and have minimal expenses.

The rationale: Real estate brokers are independent business people who have irregular income determined by the frequency and size of their sales commissions, but have regular bills to pay like other business people. With no salary to show, brokers have difficulty obtaining credit so commission advances are often the only means they have to manage cash flow.

Secured transactions: At the same time, real estate brokers must also be licensed by a state and affiliated with a licensed brokerage. Our advances are paid back by the brokerage office or title company, so the broker never receives the funds that are due to us, and so has no opportunity to divert payment. Meanwhile, every advance is secured by ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE COMMISSIONS that the broker is otherwise due.

Conclusion: Since brokers must be licensed and affiliated, we are paid our principal and 10-20% fees directly by a third party upon demand, and we are secured by ALL commissions the broker earns, it is very difficult for a broker to avoid repayment.
