We all start with the same percentage, producers cap quickly and it is free for the rest of the year.

We have a structured program for new agents that includes splits becoming larger as they demonstrate competency in key areas...

In my experience, splits are determined by productivity.  And new agents tend to need more hand-holding and they usually aren't productive immediately.  While new agents may start at a lower split, they can move up the ladder reasonably quickly as they start to get results.

The others have given you good advice. I started in 1992 and got a 50-50 split.

No less than a 50/50 split when starting or they will find someone else.

I give a 50/50 to new agents and all agents until they reach the established plateau.

It all depends - if someone is smart and wants to work hard, I'd still pay them higher split whereas someone has experience of 15 years but not much of motivation, I'd prefer a lower split.

One way you can handle this William Feela is by giving extra bonus on production or a tiered split.

In my experience, new agents always start at lower splits. New follks require time and training...

William Feela I'm glad you asked that, and it brings up a related question in my mind.  Are mentoring fees common?  The brokerage I've been with since the late 90's doesn't do such a thing, we all simply pull-together & it's yielded some wonderful agents.  A brokerage I was briefly affiliated with in FL, had rather strict/aggressive mentoring fees - it seemed to me that some agents could take advantage of or be taken advantage by this.

Which approach is the norm?
