Ed Note

What is a “Top Producer” Real Estate Agent? It is an agent with credit for selling lots of properties. Actually, many, if not most of those sales are made by other agents. To be a “top producer,” an agent needs lots of listings for lots of other agents to sell for them. The selling agent finds a buyer, and writes an offer which is submitted to the listing agent. The listing agent presents it to the seller, and when agreement is reached, an escrow is opened. When the transaction closes, the listing agent gets credit for the full purchase price, and the selling agent gets credit for the full purchase price! The commission is usually split 50/50.

Should you list with a top producer agent? One question you need to consider is how much time and energy will your listing agent be able to give to your listing? My choice is to have no more than 10 or so listings at any one time. That way I know that I can give each and every one of them the time and attention that they need and deserve.
