BrokerSumo's Simplified Commission Management Platform Helps Brokers and Teams Retain Top Agents
Teams and Small Brokers Manage Productivity and Pay SACRAMENTO, CA--(Aug. 1, 2017) - BrokerSumo, a leading back office, commission management and accounting platform for real estate brokerages and agent teams, is helping smaller brokers and real estate teams compete successfully for top producers by simplifying the management of commissions to make sure they are paid accurately and promptly. As real estate agents change firms faster than ever, keeping accurate and current commission data has required spreadsheets and manual calculations, and even the largest agencies with IT staff and full-time accounting support struggle to keep agents happy. Small, independent brokers and real estate teams have been at a competitive disadvantage for attracting and keeping top talent until the launch of BrokerSumo last October. BrokerSumo's integrated platform avoids double entry and minimizes errors from manually re-entering information. BrokerSumo integrates with like dot loop, SkySlope, and accounting software like QuickBooks, allowing brokers and agents who use these programs to sync their transaction data seamlessly. It even takes care of the details, like managing escrow accounts, paying commissions electronically and onboarding new agents. No longer do brokers and agents need to struggle with programs that don't work together, manually re-enter data, or pay for software they don't know how to us. Custom Commission Plans Track Productivity and Pay Agents By managing commissions selectively, small brokerages and teams using BrokerSumo can analyze the productivity of agents and brokers and motivate them individually. Productivity can vary greatly. Last year, for example, less than 20 percent of all Realtors produced more than $5 million in annual sales each while 28 percent of all Realtors delivered sales totaling $500,000 or less last year. BrokerSumo creates custom commission plans for every agent and automatically calculates the agent's commission split for each transaction It tracks all credits and debits, charging agents credit cards for their monthly fees directly from the system. In addition to tracking agent and office sales performance from transaction data, BrokerSumo can also track agents' personnel records and store all of their critical documents such as their real estate license, insurance card, and driver's license. Agent billing invoices and payments sync automatically every time an invoice is sent. "I can monitor agent productivity every day. BrokerSumo makes it so easy to get a snapshot of how people," says Paul Knighton, President and Managing Broker of MORE Realty in Portland, OR. A BrokerSumor customer since February, Knighton is impressed by the platform's simplicity. "It's like a plug-and-play applications." Tailored for Mezzanine and Independent Brokers No other tool is designed specifically to manage and compensate real estate professionals based on their models, which makes BrokerSumo a perfect answer for mezzanine and large independent brokers that want to save money on back office personnel costs. Luis Gonzalez, Employing Broker, and Principal Broker at Brokers' Guild in Colorado Springs, Colorado's premier independent real estate brokerage firm with more than 900 brokers and agents, found the "old school" alternative of manual bookkeeping and spreadsheets too expensive. "In the Denver market alone we are doing 300 closings a month. BrokerSumo is so simple to use and to navigate that we can track income, commissions, and expenses on a year to date basis and monitor the effectiveness of agents every day," said Gonzalez. BrokerSumo not only relieves the back-office burden for brokerages and teams, but it also shows them how to become more successful by tracking performance and profitability. It is a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use set of tools designed to give independent real estate brokerages and agent teams exactly what they need. "BrokerSumo saves users tens of thousands of dollars every year in time saved and accuracy, but it is paying off in other ways. It makes smaller, independent agencies more attractive to top-selling agents by providing them back-office support that is equal or superior to the largest brokerages. Equally important, it tracks agent performance with profitability to identify opportunities that maximize commissions and reward achievers," said Jeremy Shoenig, founder of BrokerSumo. About BrokerSumo BrokerSumo is a back office, commission management and accounting solution for real estate brokerages and agent teams. It enables brokers to manage their agent's information, track transactions and commission dollars, automatically calculate commission splits, create commission disbursements, bill agents for monthly fees, pay agents their commissions electronically, report on agent and office performance and sync financial data to QuickBooks.

BrokerSumo Introduces Caps on Fees for Commission Plans
Introducing BrokerSumo's latest commission plan feature: caps on fees. If you charge fees per transaction but you have a cap on those fees, you can now create commission plans that automatically calculate when the cap is met. For example: You charge a fee of $100 per transaction but only until the agent has paid $1000 in fees during a set period. For the first 10 transactions, the $100 fee will automatically appear on the commission disbursement, but once they've paid in $1,000, the next transaction will not apply the fee. When the commission plan resets, based on the criteria you select (agent's start date, calendar year, custom date), the fee will start again and cap will need to be met again. To add this feature to a new commission plan, you'll see a question, Cap on Fees? Select Yes and then you can add the cap amount. ​ This feature can only be applied to new commission plans, so if you want to move existing agents into this type of plan, you’ll need to create the new plan, and then assign the commission plan to that agent.

Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service Provides "Killer App" to Real Estate Brokerages with Real Time Business Analytics
RICHMOND, VA, January 08, 2015 -- Long considered one of the most progressive Multiple Listing Services in the US, Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service (CVR MLS) was faced with a business challenge. In addition to 4,500 agent subscribers, the firm also serves over 750 real estate brokerages ranging in size from one-person offices to one of the largest independent brokers in the country. Essentially, these brokers are not necessarily in the real estate business; they're in the real estate agent management business. And inside the CVR MLS database, a veritable goldmine of data and insights were there for the taking to help. The challenge was the time commitment, manual effort required to extract data and the high cost of existing products was keeping brokers from obtaining this information--so vital to their business. As a direct result, CVR MLS has engaged one of the leading industry analytics firms, RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI), to provide their MarketView360 service (known as MV360) to all of their brokers commencing in the first quarter of 2015. Laura Lafayette, CEO of CVR MLS said: "Office managers, brokers and executives told us they needed affordable, quick and easy access to reliable, recent and MLS-curated business intelligence to help recruit, budget and keep an eye on their competition. MV360 gives our brokers agent and office-level stats in one simple search with little or no training. This saves time from doing multiple searches in the MLS and the dreaded manipulation in Excel or other offline products and gets our brokers data they really need ... and fast!" MV360 features include: Agent Summary Report - Details agent production and ranking quartiles for defined market areas. With the simple user interface, instant searches by office code/name, agent name, or the number of transactions/sales volume are now possible. Many brokerage firms use this report to instantly identify top performing (or up-and-coming) agents in their preferred market areas for recruitment or be sure that they're aware of the potential top producers in their own company. The Agent Detail Display provides a more detailed view of an agent's production. This includes OLP to SP ratios for both listing sides and sale (buyer) sides and, a new metric, Days to Settlement from contract to settlement (DTS). Also includes the number of sales that are "fall-outs" and did not close, very important information when assessing sales people. Office Summary Report - Provides an "office" view of important performance indicators to track/report market share in preferred market areas. The Office Detail Display shows office production details to help benchmark against the competition, create market-derived budgets and, of primary importance, leverage the firm's market share in specific market areas or "farms". Brokers of all sizes can use this to win more listings and enhance their local reputation and consumer awareness. John Heithaus, RBI's Chief Evangelist, said: "The data and the critical insights derived from MV360 make it the 'killer app' for real estate office managers, brokers and executives who seek to keep one step ahead of the competition and run an efficient and productive brokerage organization. We're looking forward to working with Laura and her team to get MV360 into the daily routine of all of their brokerages to help them survive and thrive in 2015." About CVRMLS The mission of the Central Virginia Regional Multiple Listing Service (CVR MLS) is to provide our members with the resources and services they need to conduct ethical, professional, and profitable businesses. Contact Kate Loveluck, Marketing & Public Relations Manager at [email protected] About MV360 MV360 is developed and managed by RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI) one of the leading business analytic firms in the residential real estate industry.

Data can be entered into one program and the update is carried through to each of the other programs in the product line. The addition of SSO functionality in WOLFconnect opens the door for brokers to further enhance their office technology and maintain a true one-point of entry for agents and staff, resulting in improved data flow. "The implementation of single sign-on technology with our third party partners and WOLFconnect is a perfect fit for the needs of our clients. Since 1989, we've developed software and services to improve the operations and efficiency of real estate brokerages, while opening up the data pipeline to eliminate siloization of data in the industry.

MRIS Announces Alliance with ShowingTime and its ShowingAssist Online Showing Management Service
CUSTOMERS OF MRIS – THE NATION'S LARGEST MLS WITH OVER $36B IN ANNUAL SALES – WILL BENEFIT FROM STREAMLINED APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING, CONFIRMATIONS AND NOTIFICATIONS Chicago, IL – June 2, 2011—ShowingTime, the real estate industry's leading showing management technology provider, announced today that Metropolitan Regional Information System (MRIS), the largest MLS in the nation with 45,000 customers, has selected ShowingAssist to help customers manage showings directly through the MLS. The system is planned for implementation in the third quarter of 2011. "ShowingAssist will give MRIS customers time-saving tools to schedule showings and get showings on their own listings," said MRIS Chief Marketing Officer John L. Heithaus, who noted that MRIS currently has approximately 80,000 active listings. "That will enable them to provide better service to buyers and sellers. ShowingAssist works with many of the other showing services and the SentriLock lockbox system to provide real time business intelligence to real estate professionals in the MRIS system," he added. Using ShowingAssist, listing agents can post showing instructions and enter available hours on an interactive appointment calendar to indicate when a listing is available for showings; showing agents can request showings by clicking the "Schedule a Showing" button next to a listing. Showing notifications are routed instantly according to the listing agent's preferences. Agents can also carbon copy smart phones and receive automatic voice notifications so they are informed of showing activity while in the field. Hundreds of offices in MRIS also use ShowingDesk Web Edition, ShowingTime's web-enabled front desk software. For them, showing requests made via the MLS download automatically into a "Task List" to facilitate prompt follow-up. ShowingDesk is the industry's most popular front desk software for managing showings. "We are pleased MRIS has selected ShowingAssist to be part of its Gen M (next generation) of MLS tools," said ShowingTime Executive Vice President Michael Lane. "ShowingAssist removes some of the obstacles to showing a home, which can be very helpful especially during challenging economic times." The ShowingTime Appointment Center, a service for offices that want to outsource showing tasks, is also available to MRIS agents and offices and works seamlessly with ShowingAssist. The Appointment Center provides fully or partially outsourced showing management services, a dedicated appointment center staff to fully confirm showings, and branded phone calls, as if the appointment center staff is in the subscriber's office. About ShowingTime ShowingTime equips real estate agents, brokers, offices, Associations and MLSs with tools to schedule showings, generate feedback and measure marketing effectiveness.
