I know I must have an active Real Estate Sales Associate license to place my license with a broker, but do I need to be a member of an association in order to be a part of London Foster?
How long has London Foster been in business?
London Foster has been in business for over 7 years.
What exactly is “100% Commission” and how do you make money?
At London Foster, we want you to keep all your hard-earned money. We do not charge a monthly or a desk fee. We do not charge our EMPOWERED agents a franchise fee. We don’t work from the traditional commission splits of 60/40 or 80/20, as do other firms. We charge a flat fee to all our EMPOWERED agents; it doesn’t vary regardless of the amount of the transaction. Whether you sell a $200,000 condo or help your buyer with the purchase of a $2,000,000 home we charge the same flat fee. How much of that fee comes from your commission depends on you. As we grow, so does your potential. Volume is how we remain profitable!
I’ve been working for a traditional Real Estate firm my whole career. Last year I closed 7 deals representing either the seller or the buyer. How much money am I realistically going to save by joining London Foster?

We have developed an easy tool for you to calculate how much money you could have saved last year, if you had joined London Foster sooner!

Imagine having the first month’s rent or an initial deposit in escrow and being able to provide an Escrow Letter with your Contract to Lease (CTL) or an Escrow Letter in 10 Minutes. We also can pay you from those funds and transfer the remaining funds to the title company before the closing.
