    Hey there. There are a lot of different models out there for agents to work under. For instance you could work at a company that will let you keep 100% of your commission but you would pay $100 per month plus $300+/- per transaction. Not a bad deal but you get what you pay for; no support, no training, no meetings or office environment. The other side is a full service company where you keep 70 to 80% of your income but you get as much support and training as you can handle and there are no expenses. There are some hybrid models as well that perhaps offer 90/10 splits but might also have a $500 a month fees. Not an easy choice to make.
    Agents in ontario must work for a brokerage even though they are considered self employed so their success is really only based on how much time and money they invest.
    When I interview agents I ask them what they plan to do to distinguish themselves from the nearly 40k other agents out there. The reality is that if you treat it like a full time job, show up everyday, prospect regularly, have a decent on line persona and market yourself smartly, this can be a very rewarding profession.
