Real estate is a wonderfully complex industry. There’s nothing quite so fulfilling as a career as an agent. It gives you the opportunities to build meaningful relationships, help clients through important life events and gives you the freedom to build a business that impacts and improves the lives of others. We believe relationships are always the most valuable parts of a business but there’s no doubt that a successful real estate career can yield significant profit. That’s why we think it’s important you know about a brokerage’s comp plans upfront.
In the interest of transparency, we want to share our comp plans so you know exactly how much you could make as an agent with CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate.
The C21SRE Commission Plans
Both plans are designed to empower you and keep as much profit in your pocket as possible. These competitive commission splits, combined with our training, coaching, support, and tools, set you up for success and increase your earning potential- whether you’re an experienced veteran or a new agent just starting out.
The Relentless Plan
The majority of our agents are on the Relentless Plan. You’ll start at a 90% commission split until you reach $200,000 in gross commission income (GCI) at which point you will move up to a 100% commission split. On this plan, you’ll pay a monthly fee of $350 and for each transaction pay a flat transaction fee and a 6% franchise fee.

How Much Will I Make on the Relentless Plan?
Let’s break down what you could expect to make in a year as a C21® agent on the Relentless Plan. In this example, we’ll assume that in a year, you helped 20 clients buy homes that averaged a $200,000 sale price. Take a look at what your estimated annual income would be:
The Kickstart Plan
The Kickstart Plan is designed to help new agents get started in real estate. You’ll start at a 70% commission split with a monthly fee of $100. The set transaction fee is lower but the 6% C21® franchise fee remains the same.
If you’re just starting off in real estate and working to build up your business, you may find the Kickstart Plan is the most financially feasible at first. The good news? Anyone on the Kickstart Plan can move up to the Relentless Plan at any point- no matter where you are in your career!

How Much Will I Make on the Kickstart Plan?
