Real Estate Brokerage Business Plan

Executive Summary

RJ Wagner & Associates Realty, Inc., is an S corporation domiciled in the state of Texas. This corporation is capitalized by one single stockholder and one principal investor, Regina Wagner.  Regina Wagner is a licensed broker and the sponsoring broker for this firm. The licensed broker of this firm will sponsor licensed real estate agents (independent contractors) in the state of Texas. This corporation will formalize the real estate services offered.

RJ Wagner & Associates Realty, Inc., will open its doors for operation in July.  The office is located in Houston, Texas (Champions area) in the Greenwood Square Shopping Center, to provide services to the higher income section of Metropolitan Houston.

Credibility and reputation excel with the broker of this firm, with a published real estate book and real estate organizational programs placed in the Houston Association of Realtors and the Dallas Association of Realtors bookstores and superstores. For the past year novice licensed agents have enjoyed the organizational tools and guidance offered in the book Texas Real Estate/The Mobile Mentor.

1.1 Objectives

The primary objectives of our organization are to:

  • Become a profitable organization allowing us the freedom of taking advantage of other real estate investment opportunities as they become available.
  • Recruit and hire self-motivated, success-oriented, and hardworking sales agents.
  • Maintain an office of at least 15 sales agents who meet the previous requirements.
  • Develop a solid, corporate identity in our specified targeted market area.
  • To establish good working relationships and begin working as a team, promoting communication and suggestions from all participants.
  • Become one of the top brokerage firms in operation in the Champion area by our third year of operation, or before.
  • Realize a positive return on investment within the first 12 months.

We believe the above-mentioned objectives are obtainable because of the professionalism of the manager and sales associates this corporation will hold.  Individuals gaining a real estate license leave school with the knowledge of the real estate laws and procedures. The turnover rate in this business is high since agents have no training outside the laws and regulations of the business itself. Once they have a license, only then, they may obtain the sales and marketing training that is needed upon entering the profession. This training is available at a high price to the agent. When starting out, most agents are not able to obtain this training at the high prices set forth, and without the proper training the average earnings of a beginning real estate agent is very low in comparison to industry standards.

The office environment we will be providing will be productively arranged yet inviting to the agent as well as the client. There will be a location in the office each day with a daily marketing routine/schedule to follow.  Agents have the opportunity to be guided each day through a marketing plan to gain clients. They may choose to follow the guidelines and  training provided or they may follow their own daily routines. We will be supplying a program allowing the new agents to earn more than the average real estate agent by providing guidance and stability.

If an agent with our company sets a goal to obtain only one seller and one buyer for the month, on an average of $150,000 sale on each side, would earn the agent $6,750 per month X 12 months = $81,000 per year. Regina's goal as the broker is to assist each agent in conquering this goal.

The same sales as noted above would profit the corporation $2,250 per month X 12 months =  $27,000 for the year X 15 agents = $405,000. This is not including sales from the active broker of this corporation which would be $4,500 commission from each side to total  $9,000 (100%) to the corporation.   The broker will receive a salary from the corporation.
