1995 - A Tuesday night around 8 PM:

I stood in front of the stainless steel lunchmeat counter, took my paper hat off and took a moment to relax.

It had been a fairly busy night at Mars Supermarket, but now the crowd was gone.

I worked the 4 PM to 10 PM shift on evenings like this and I hoped that the rest of the night would be quiet and easy so I could clean up and leave right at 10:00 PM.

I glanced over at the refrigerated display cases and noticed that the milk needed to be filled.

Let me go grab a hand truck and take care of the milk, I thought, as I saw him come down the aisle headed in my direction.

He was my client. The owner of a house I had listed for sale.

I was a twenty-four year old real estate salesperson in 1995 with Long & Foster Real Estate and I was embarrassed at the thought of being exposed as a part-time agent.

You see, I am supposed to be a businessman that deals with finances and the sale of a person's largest asset and here I have a paper hat on, a white deli jacket and my red tie reeks of ham and other assorted meat juices. I also live with my parents.

I panicked!

I sprinted into the back room and hid while my seller client came up to the deli counter and placed his lunch meat order.

Luckily there was someone else working with me that night to wait on him instead of me, whew!

I laid low in the meat cutting room until he was gone.

My cheeks flushed red from embarrassment and the cold of the meat room, I thought to myself: one day I am going to get the hell out of here and never come back!

I have to make this real estate thing work!

 

Supermarket days! I worked at Mars Supermarkets from 1989 to 1996. Here I am posing with meat that I stopped a shoplifter from stealing.

 

Hello! Robert Kaetzel here. Its 2021 and I have been in the real estate business for twenty-six wonderful years. My grocery store days are in the past. I have been the broker of my own real estate company, Real Estate Professionals, Inc. since 2002 and life and business are good!

Why did I tell you this story?

I want you to know where I came from and to understand that nobody set me up in this business.

I wasn't connected and I started at square one maybe like you did and...

I want to tell you about something amazing that changed my life!

 

100% COMMISSION - AN AMAZING CONCEPT

Learning about the 100% commission concept and earning 100% commission on my sales became one of the greatest things that ever happened to me!

It gave me the freedom I wanted and needed and it gave me the money I needed to invest in myself and my real estate business. Earning 100% commission helped me to take a real estate job and turn it into a business that paid more than any job ever could.

Earning 100% commission changed my life dramatically and it will change your life as well!

Earning 100% commission on my sales for over 20 years helped me to learn about what an agent needs and what they don't need. I used everything that I learned over the years to create a one of a kind "agent friendly" 100% commission system where the agent would have all of the systems and support that they need all in a maximum earnings environment that promotes success and achievement!

In the competitive world of real estate sales you need every dollar that you can get so that you can invest it into your business so that it will grow!

 

Fact: No commission split plan that anybody can offer you beats 100% commission!

 

Think about it for a second...

You are the one who every day makes phone calls and meets with people to try and make sales happen. You risk your time and money and you burn your gas in anticipation of making a sale; then all your company thinks about is a new rule or fee that will cost you money or steal your time. They say that the office is a family yet talk is cheap.

 

If you are the one that does the work, shouldn’t you receive the rewards associated with your hard work?

 

If you aren't earning 100% commission on your sales, you are depriving yourself and your family of money and freedom.

 

Fact: An agent can be successful with any arrangement but 100% commission systems are the best. They make it easy for an agent to be successful and make more money!

 

Fact: Earning 100% commission on your sales will help you to grow your business quicker than a commission split agent. Since you earn more you will be able to make greater investments into your business to pay for things like marketing, advertising, better tools or even a personal assistant.

 

It used to be that 100% commission deals were very expensive and few brokers offered them.

Real Estate Professionals, Inc. has made earning 100% commission affordable!

Our super valuable commission plans will allow you to reap the rewards of your success and hard work!

INDEPENDENT COMPANY WITH REAL VALUES

Real Estate Professionals is an independent company in business since 2002.

The company was built with a core set of beliefs and values.

We provide the most value to the agent who is making the sale. That's you!

We are always honest, fair, trustworthy and transparent to the agents licensed with our brokerage. That's you!

We only want reputable and experienced agents that are professional in all of their dealings. That's you!

 

 

Here is a small sample of what our agents say about Real Estate Professionals, Inc:

"Real Estate Professionals, Inc. provides an incredible opportunity for me to grow my business. The State of the Art Technology allows me to be productive and efficient with both processing paperwork and communicating to all parties necessary. The Broker is available anytime for questions, support and training and his response time is amazing. Having experience with other large Real Estate Firms I know if other agents knew about how reliable, easy, cost effective Real Estate Professionals, Inc. is they would switch today! Everyday I have the opportunity to focus my business and building my brand and not worrying about office politics."

Susie Sudek (former RE/MAX agent)

 

"I have been a licensed Realtor since 1978 and I've been affiliated with many real estate firms over the course of my years in real estate sales. Real Estate Professionals Inc. has given me the most satisfying experience of any of those companies and the greatest opportunity to maximize my potential as a trained professional. I'd advise any experienced Realtor to explore his or her options with this company. You'll be treated like the professional you are and given access to all the tools you'll need to reach your potential in the business we all love. The name says it all, Real Estate Professionals is the place for you."

Mark Brown, Jr. (former Long & Foster agent)

 

"What a great place to work! I am happy to say I am affiliated with this Brokerage. The training is exceptional. The personal attention and guidance I received from the office administrator and the Broker of record are far superior to the last brokerage with whom I was affiliated. I feel privileged to say I am affiliated with this Real Estate Brokerage and I would suggest to any agent that is looking for an alternative, to look no further, this is the best brokerage to work with. It truly is a group of Real Estate Professionals. The level of professionalism that extends from the Broker Robert Kaetzel and runs through the office staff and all the affiliated real estate agents is well known amongst the other Brokers and Agents. I am a better agent through the experience and education I have received since affiliating with Real Estate Professionals, Inc."

Brad King (former Coldwell Banker agent)

 

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

When you become a Real Estate Professionals, Inc. agent you get me.

You will have direct access to me and I will help you help your business grow.

I have been licensed as a real estate agent in Maryland since 1995 and have been the broker for Real Estate Professionals, Inc. since I created the company in 2002. During that time thousands of transactions have been sold under my real estate license.

I have the benefit of many years of experience problem solving for myself and for the agents in the office and I act as a coach/manager to the agents in the office. Since I am actively selling real estate I can show you how to do it successfully and the right way.

I have heard some office managers say, "I don't sell. I don't compete with my agents." What they really mean is that they can't show you what to do or how to grow your real estate business because they aren't actually doing it.

I have created numerous tools, forms and techniques that I use in my personal real estate business and I share all of these with the agents affiliated with our company.

Any leads or inquiries on your listings will be forwarded to you if they call the office or inquire through the company web page.

Since we are an independent company, we give you the freedom to market yourself the way you want to be viewed by your clients. If you are going to grow your business you need to make a name for yourself, not your company or corporate brand.

At Real Estate Professionals we give you the freedom to market yourself the way that you want. You can use our standard company look on your marketing materials and signage or you can create your own.

Here is an example of our newest "no photo" for sale sign for 2020.

The sign is 24 inches wide x 30 inches high.

Your name, personal phone number and personal website address are displayed prominently so that you will be marketing yourself.

 

 

You will be reponsible for purchasing your own for sale signs since they have your information on them.

6 high quality for sale signs that hang from a post will cost roughly $300.00 and we can give you all the information needed to order.

Some people ask why we don't provide for sale signs...at many companies they do.

If a company provides you with a for sale sign it will only have the company information displayed and you will have to purchase name riders which can cost close to what a for sale sign will cost. If you buy name riders then you may also have to make an extra trip to your property listing. The post sign companies we deal with will store your signs and install them when you order and the price of install is $34.00 - $50.00 depending on which company you use.

You have to market yourself, not the brokerage you are affiliated with.

You are the product people want to buy!

Having your own for sale signs looks more professional than having your name on a name rider and frankly...if you aren't willing to invest a few hundred dollars in marketing yourself professionally you wouldn't be the kind of agent we are looking for.

REAL ESTATE INVESTOR AGENT PROGRAM

Are you a serious real estate investor?

Do you invest in real estate to hold as a rental or to fix and flip?

Many of the agents at our brokerage actively invest in real estate because our 100% commission programs are a perfect fit for a real estate investor.

We have created a Real Estate Investor Agent Program to give you tools and resources that will make your real estate investing more profitable and outrageously successful.

Are some real estate agencies investor friendly? Sure, but we have created an entire division of our company to support real estate investors who are licensed agents.

 

REALTOR® ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIPS

All Real Estate Professionals, Inc. agents are REALTORS®.

We currently maintain membership with the Greater Baltimore Board of REALTORS® and the Harford County Association of REALTORS®.

If you are a member of another association in Maryland, you may be able to stay a member there.

This is determined on a case by case basis.

 

IS THIS FOR YOU?

We are not the best fit for every agent!

If you are looking for one company to be licensed with in multiple states we are probably not the best fit as we are only licensed in Maryland. We do not have any immediate plans to pursue licenses in other states.

- If you are broke and can't pay your 100% commission program fees, REALTOR® dues and Bright MLS fees we would not be a good fit.

- If you are an agent who has a bad reputation or one who everybody dislikes we would not be a good fit.

- If your clients and customers don't feel that you give them great service we would not be a good fit.

- If you never turn files into your real estate office we would not be a good fit.

Our reputation is important to us.

We are not interested in creating a “body count” and we don’t care about having the most agents. Yuck!

Some offices seem awfully proud of their "body count" LOL.

If you think Real Estate Professionals, Inc. might be a good fit, schedule a 30 minute phone call on my calendar or fill out the form below.
