Working as a residential REALTOR® is still one of the lowest cost – highest return business opportunities available to you.

However, you will still carry overhead. You must also be prepared to spend a great deal of your time building momentum.

In general, your annual overhead could look like this:

Sole practitioner

(in a traditional brokerage)

Team Member

Ambergate Realty Advisors

Annual licencing & memberships

(per annum)



Website maintenance (website set up might be an additional $5,000 to 10,000)



Electronic tools

(doc signing & transaction management)



Social media marketing (paid for)



Google PPC



Brokerage fees* estimated & varies from brokerage to brokerage



Total approx. overhead per annum

(excludes, vehicle, computers & phones etc.




* Some brokerage bills could be a few hundred dollars. Some brokerages may charge you much more especially if they are providing sources of client introductions.

Note that if you were to join us, you would avoid direct website, social media & Google PPC costs. We provide these tools to ALL of our team members.
