My decision to join United was simple. I had finally found a company that provided technology, training for growth and a national presence. I have been providing real estate services to my clients for over 20 years and have been paying other brokerages thousands of dollars for very little support. When I found out I could provide Service, Technology and a reputable nationwide presence and keep 100% of my commission – It was a no-brainer

After meeting with United I realized rather quickly the decision to make a move was an easy one. I met with United after one of my favorite brokers joined. Excellent Broker and staff support for when I need it. Easy to use Technology in place for additional support and no more giving up a big chunk of my hard-earned commissions! I wish I made the switch earlier!

I joined United Real Estate because of the integrity of the establishment with the autonomy to grow your business with minimum cost but with lots of support and tools provided by the company. It’s truly your business with the 100% commission less the minimum fees. It makes a great business sense no matter how you slice it.
