Power Hour Webinar: Cut the Commission: Pros & Cons of Paying Co-op Commission

Power Hour Webinar: Cut the Commission: Pros & Cons of Paying Co-op Commission

 

 

 

 

Join us once a month on Fridays at noon E.T. for the Sales & Marketing Power Hour. Kimberly Mackey of New Homes Solutions Consulting and Carol Morgan of Denim Marketing promise to power up home builder sales and marketing teams–no topic is too cutting edge for us to tackle!

Focused on providing solutions, tips and ideas to both sales and marketing teams in the new home industry, Sales & Marketing Power Hour offers best practices and practical advice on what is working in today’s real estate market.

Cut the Commission: Pros & Cons of Paying Co-op Commission

On Friday, March 12, 2021, we recorded “Cut the Commission: Pros & Cons of Paying Co-op Commission.” If you are a builder thinking about cutting commissions as part of your cost saving measures, please watch this video before you make that decision. The new home market is insane and home builders are looking at tactics to throttle sales from cutting commission to raising home prices. We called in the PROS to explore the advantages and consequences of commission strategies and REALTOR® relations throughout the industry. Hosts Kimberly Mackey of New Homes Solutions and Carol Morgan of Denim Marketing are joined by Keith McKinney with New Homes Star and Melanie Mickie with Rockhaven Homes for what was a very lively discussion.

Melanie Mickie, VP of Sales and Marketing for Rockhaven Homes. Has successfully sold homes and managed New Home Sales Teams in Minneapolis, Washington, D.C., Tampa/St. Petersburg, and Atlanta. The best part of her job is seeing her Teams develop, grow, and improve and celebrating their success along the way.

Keith McKinney is a dynamic executive leader in the New Home Sales industry. He is a sought-after speaker whose vast understanding of the sales process and his unique and commanding leadership style propelled him to play an executive role for several companies in his career most recently within top tier command for New Home Star. New Home Star is the largest private seller of new homes in America and named 2018 Best Places to Work by Glassdoor. As VP of Organizational Development, he oversees all personnel development processes, programs, and training initiatives for every level of New Home Star globally.
