You are in an interesting position in my opinion. Since you are obviously a trusted and proven employee of this brokerage firm, and your value is known, I think you have leverage to ask for an share in the success of the people you recruit and train. How better for the firm to keep you motivated to do your best to bring in the best and help them do their best?
I think this is a good argument showing your interest in your firms best interest, not just your own.
I meant to add, please feel free to ask any follow up questions regarding this subject. My best regards ***** ***** on your efforts!
10% is a good starting point. I expect they might offer 5% or just say no. Be ready with your final answer before you go into the conversation.
I personally have not heard of any other recruiters in my experience receiving a percentage of commision on hires, within the real estate field or any other industry sales positions.
In closing, let me add that you may find that you firm is a rare one and is willing to consider offering you an incentive pay structure for this role you will play. And in large part, it will have to do with how much value you have earned as an employee. So again, I wish you well and I appreciate you taking a moment to rate my service to you.
