Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Below are the some of the more common ones we hear.
Will I have Broker support?
How much money will I save working with Central Metro Realty?
Without knowing your average sale size and your current split it’s hard to say. If you were to close a $300,000 home the normal 3% commission due to you would be $9,000.00. Under our 100 plan your net commission on this sale would be $8,900.00. Compared to a 70/30 split on the same transaction you’d earn $2,600.00 more and that’s only one sale.
Can I start a team with Central Metro with my own commission splits?
Yes! If you’d like to build a team with Central Metro it’s simple. Every member of your team must be on our 100 plan. After that you are free to put to set your custom splits with those working alongside you. Our model is excellent for those who would like to run and manage a real estate team in Texas.
Do you provide leads?
We don’t actively provide leads to our Realtors as our fees are to low to generate them via paid sources. Our software suite is easy to integrate with the many lead companies in our industry and your leads can automatically populate our CRM. You can view a sample agent IDX site by visiting our real estate search site.
Are my leads protected if I upload my database into your CRM?
Your data belongs to you. Any business you generate is yours to keep with Central Metro Realty and if you choose to leave at anytime your database will leave with you!

What kind of marketing materials do you provide to your agents?
