Choosing a Real Estate Brokerage To Work With
By: Ronen Fishman

There are so many real estate brokerages in the GTA and Toronto that it can be confusing for novice realtors to know where the start. There's a lot to take into consideration when choosing a brokerage beyond just comparing commission splits. Consider the following when choosing a real estate brokerage:

Commission Split

The commission split is often the first thing new realtors look at when choosing a real estate brokerage. Though commission is so important, you need more from a brokerage than just money. That being said, Upperside Real Estate offers 100 per cent commission to its brokers, something that no other full-service brokerage in the GTA offers.

Mentoring and Training

Novice agents almost always overlook the importance of the level of mentoring a brokerage offers. If you're new to the industry you will probably require help with everything from paperwork to finding leads. It's important to find a brokerage that will support and train you. Upperside Real Estate will work with you from day one and values agents that are passionate about continuing their education.


Size definitely dictates the type of experience you will have working with any given brokerage. Though larger brokerages may have more walk-in business, smaller or start-up brokerages often cater to your strengths and weakness. At Upperside, we have a team-oriented brokerage that cares about the success of our realtors.

Lead Generation

It's important to find out how you will recieve leads and prospects. Ask questions about where the brokerage gets leads from, the amount of leads you can expect, and their general lead projections. At Upperside Real Estate, we have a one-of-a-kind lead generation that system that will never leave a realtor without a prospect.
