As RJ Wagner is a sole proprietorship, the principal's personal net worth is given below.
This firm will not have employees but rather independent contractors. Therefore, the firm will not be issuing payroll to employees. Payroll will be issued to the broker of the corporation alone. All reception/secretarial needs will be complied with by the on-site/on duty agents on any given day. There will be two licensed agents on duty at all times.
Licensed agents will receive 3% commission on "one" side (seller or buyer side) of the sale spectrum. Of that 3% commission earned, 25% is awarded to the company. If an agent performs the act of the selling agent and also the buyer agent of the same property sale, then this agent would gain the full 6% commission (both sides of the agency), therefore, the corporation would be awarded 25% from each agency side.
We believe this plan is a fair compromise between fairness and expedience, and meets the commitment of our mission statement. The detailed monthly personnel plan for the first year is included in the appendix.
