Why Should You Join City Connections?

Welcome to City Connections, where we offer the best of both worlds: the amenities and support of a traditional real estate firm combined with the higher splits of a high split firm.

1) Exceptional
Agent Commission Splits

While big-brand firms often fall short in terms of agent compensation, City Connections stands out by offering an impressive 70-95% commission split. This competitive edge showcases our commitment to rewarding the hard work and dedication of our agents, setting us apart in the real estate industry.

2) Outstanding Company Culture

City Connections has fostered a unique brokerage culture that differentiates them from other firms. Unlike the corporate environments of some larger brokerages, City Connections prides themselves on fostering a collaborative and supportive atmosphere. The owner is accessible seven days a week, which creates an open-door policy that encourages communication and collaboration between agents and leadership.

3) Preference for
Third-Party Websites

In the realm of online property searches, potential buyers and renters tend to prioritize third-party websites, such as StreetEasy and Zillow, over the websites of established real estate firms. This trend highlights the prominence and influence of these platforms in shaping the initial stages of the property search process for consumers.

4) Combining Local
and Global Presence

City Connections prides itself on being a local brand with a global reach. As a mid-sized firm, we possess the capacity to deliver the comprehensive services and resources you would expect from a large-scale real estate company, while maintaining the personalized attention and adaptability characteristic of a boutique firm. This unique blend offers clients the best of both worlds in their property journey.

& Professional Development
