  36. 36. For Agents:<br /><ul><li>Limited to earning commission exclusively from their own production
  37. 37. Their own production is limited to their available time and energy

  41. 41. Challenges for today and into the future<br />For Brokers:<br /><ul><li>Agent Recruiting – Broker (and manager, if any) are the only ones interested in recruiting
  42. 42. Agent Retention – Agents are continually enticed to join other companies with higher commission splits or lower desk fees creating huge agent turnover
  43. 43. Brokers lose quality agents that open their own brokerage business - thus training their competition
  44. 44. Agents are competing against each other rather than working as a team
  45. 45. Desired company profitability is difficult to achieve</li></ul>18<br />

  47. 47. What are the experts saying?<br />“I don’t think a pure brokerage play as a business strategy is a viable play in this economy or going forward.”<br />— Ron Peltier – President & CEO, HomeServices of America<br />Source: Swanepoel Trends Report 2010<br />20<br />
  48. 48. What are the experts saying?<br />“In cases where their franchising is faltering, the culprit is most often that the models of the real estate company are not suited for these times.”<br />— Byron Ellington – Chief Products Officer, Keller Williams Realty<br />Source: Swanepoel Trends Report 2010<br />21<br />
  49. 49. What are the experts saying?<br />“[We are seeing a] decline in the number of ‘big box’ real estate office operations, which simply cannot survive given the high overhead levels typically associated with such large operations.”<br />— Michael McClure – CEO, Professional One<br />Source: Swanepoel Trends Report 2010<br />22<br />
  50. 50. “Brokers need to change their business model NOW.”<br />— Sherry Chris – Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate<br />Source: Swanepoel Trends Report 2010<br />23<br />What are the experts saying?<br />
  51. 51. How have the traditional real estate franchises reacted to the challenges?<br /><ul><li>Multiple franchise brands under one ownership
  52. 52. The real estate business model continues to evolve – constantly searching for a way to deal with the realities of today’s market and the challenges of tomorrow
  53. 53. Historically independent regional brokers are moving towards franchising
  54. 54. NAR now provides much of what franchisors used to
  55. 55. Other vendors and suppliers have also filled many of the gaps in tools, training and support</li></ul>24<br />
  56. 56. <ul><li>Many franchises have cut back on expenditures and staffing, which affects services offered to franchisees
  57. 57. Fewer franchises, fewer agents…and lower profits, if any
  58. 58. Trouble justifying the royalties paid by franchisees and agents
  59. 59. Many franchisees and agents now question the value of the brand name – which most feel is the only real value they’re receiving from their affiliation with the franchise</li></ul>25<br />How have the traditional real estate franchises reacted to the challenges?<br />
  60. 60. Are these the solutions - the proper and necessary paradigm shifts that will lead the evolution of the industry into its next age?<br />Is there a business model that will address the challenges?<br />26<br />
  61. 61. Can any model survive in this economy and marketplace?<br />27<br /><ul><li>Traditional models struggle with their “value proposition” – what do I get for what I pay?
  62. 62. 100% models struggle with changes in market conditions – cyclical nature of the business
  63. 63. Profit sharing models can only share profit when there is profit
  64. 64. Residual income potential in revenue sharing models must be large enough to be enticing
  65. 65. Regardless of the model, the customer MUST always come first</li></li></ul><li>The “We” model of real estate is structured not only to survivein this economy and marketplace, but to thrive when a lot of the other models are consolidating, losing offices/agents or going out of business. <br />28<br />
