discount

Earn 100 percent commission income on day one with Stuart St James and in perpetuity (never reset to something lower annually or otherwise, never waste another moment thinking about requalifying for a higher commission), and enjoy no “cap” system of any kind – that goes for both you as an individual agent, or, as a leader of a team at our brokerage. Compare the Stuart St James 100% commission brokerage income and fee structure to that of other Massachusetts real estate brokerages.

megaphone
Real estate marketing technology support

We offer compelling real estate agent tech stacks at exclusive prices you’re not able to achieve on your own that will help you (1) diversify your lead generation strategy and lower effective cost per lead and (2) launch a hyper-local web presence aligned to your brand and niche that you own and control.

email (1)
Professional email with a corporate domain name

Each Stuart St James agent receives complimentary access to professional email with a corporate domain name - forward to any personal email address, access it from any Internet-enabled device, and manage it standalone or inside an existing account with POP/IMAP support.

future
Practice full-time or part-time, really

Practice real estate truly at your own pace. There will not be a broker looking over your shoulder asking when your next deal will close. Work on your schedule and timeline – we will not in the future pull a bait and switch and voice disappointment or frustration you’re not closing more deals after telling us, in the beginning, you were going to practice real estate part-time.

presentation
Real estate training

Do you have anxiety around real estate contract flow, maybe a nagging feeling you’re not doing it “right”, or do you simply want to validate your process against a tested and proven formula? In response to requests and feedback from agents, we developed an on-demand online video real estate training course that walks you step-by-step through a real estate transaction from beginning to end. The course is ~ 1 hour of content across 7 modules of video (screen sharing) and audio accompanied by written content and links to supporting documents. It’s online, self-paced, and available to our agents 24/7.

deal
Fast and efficient deal closing technology

We are the only brokerage in Massachusetts to develop a super simple transaction closing process using modern technology and automation which speeds processing of closed deals and gets agents paid faster, typically one (1) business day after gross commission deposit clears our business operating account.

brochure
Professionally designed real estate marketing flyer templates

Complimentary access to 20+ professionally designed real estate marketing templates and feature sheets you can easily customize and use for open houses, private showings, and direct mail.

Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance included

brochure
Promulgated Massachusetts real estate forms

Stuart St James is a HUD Certified Principal Broker

In order to qualify to sell HUD homes, Associate Brokers and Selling Agents register on the HUD Homestore site using their personal real estate license number and their Principal Broker’s Name and Address Identification (NAID) Number. Stuart St James has a HUD-issued Principal Broker NAID which allows registered real estate agents on our team to show, advertise, and submit offers on HUD Homes. This has proven valuable to many of the real estate investor agents on the team

appointment
Monthly Recurring Passive Income Affiliate Program

Each Stuart St James agent is automatically enrolled in our Affiliate Program that gives real estate agents the opportunity to generate lifetime monthly recurring passive income affiliate commission in conjunction with agents who join Stuart St James based on your referral – learn more about our “industry-first” monthly recurring passive income real estate affiliate program.

Boston Massachusetts Virtual Real Estate Brokerage

How does a virtual real estate brokerage actually work? Stuart St James allows agents to leverage a virtual real estate office model – no required meetings or mandatory floor hours that produce little to no leads, or erroneous monthly charges for technology and equipment you don’t actually use.

A virtual real estate brokerage office model is perfect for real estate agents who are proactive, self-starting, and want to grow their own real estate agent career, brand, and business in an entrepreneurial manner.

While Stuart St James maintains a virtual office in downtown Boston, we expect our agents will be in the field at listing appointments and showings and/or meeting with clients at properties versus sitting behind a desk.

MA Real Estate Agent Salary

How Much Do Massachusetts Real Estate Agents Make?

Four major recruiting and salary insight platforms estimate the average Massachusetts real estate agent salary to range from $28,000 to $115,000 per year.

The vast majority of licensed real estate agents have below average salaries, which statistically speaking could be for a number of reasons. Yet, a Harvard study revealed something fascinating about compensation and crushing the average. 

  • 83% of participants in the study had no specific goal(s) 
  • The 14% that had specific (but unwritten) goals earned 300% more than the group without specific goals 
  • The 3% who had specific and written goals earned 1,000% more than the group without specific goals 

While correlation does not mean causation, writing down a specific goal for your real estate agent salary, even if you practice part-time, will set you up for success. Couple that goal with a formulaic and thoughtful prospecting plan, and if executed with discipline, you’ll easily crush the average.

If you’ve written down an annual income goal, plug it into the decades-old real estate agent success formula to gain clarity on how to achieve your goal – and don’t forget to play with the formula to see the massive impact commission split has on your annual income.

Which Massachusetts Real Estate Brokerage Should I Join?

Questions to Ask When Choosing a 100 Percent Commission Real Estate Brokerage

No, there are no transaction minimums or quotas at Stuart St James and you will not be asked to leave if you haven’t closed a deal in x months. A broker will not look over your shoulder and eagerly ask you to forecast deal flow against your goals or ask when you will close your next deal – it should be evident gross commission as a result of closing a deal is immaterial to Stuart St James, as 100% of gross commission is passed to agents, save a relatively inconsequential transaction fee in our Launch plan (the Elevate plan has no transaction fees). Naturally, this level of flexibility and independence allows all agents, including part-time real estate agents, to build the real estate business they choose and practice real estate as much or as little as they want.

There’s no minimum term or commitment period when affiliating with Stuart St James.

The only document we electronically sign is the decades-old standard independent contractor agreement (ICA) promulgated by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) with the fee schedule on our website as an exhibit – transparently available for your full review here (Launch plan PDF) and here (Elevate plan PDF).

Yes. As a Stuart St James agent, you will have immediate and exclusive access to highly qualified real estate leads in the markets you serve at no upfront cost via our optional Opcity lead generation partnership.

All earnest money deposits, along with additional Purchase & Sale Agreement (P&S) deposits, are held in escrow by your seller’s real estate attorney / closing attorney, not Stuart St James.

Gross commission is always made payable to Stuart St James and deposited by you, or wired by a closing attorney, into our business operating account (mailing of checks causes significant delays in processing and transferring your net commission). After submitting supporting transaction documentation and your gross commission deposit clears (which typically takes one business day), transfer of your net commission is immediate via two payment options of your choice (1) Direct Deposit (free) which takes two banking days or (2) wire transfer ($30 fee) which is most oftentimes same day.

No. Stuart St James does not charge agents different transaction fees for different priced properties. Many of our agents sell million dollar homes in Massachusetts, watch this million dollar MA real estate agent video interview.

No. Massachusetts decouples MLS access from Realtor status and there’s no requirement to join the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR), or the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) to affiliate with Stuart St James.

No, it’s not required – if you’re simply looking to hang your license and/or keep fees low, access and affiliation with a MLS is optional. Membership to New England’s largest MLS system, called MLS Property Information Network (MLS PIN), is optional and costs $126 per quarter.

Most definitely, 100%. Simply follow the professional standards of practice related to advertising (254:CMR 3:00:9) outlined by the government of Massachusetts.

Yes. When you join, you’ll be given (free) access to a complete library of forms, one set promulgated by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board and the other set promulgated by the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR). You get both.

It’s a simple and straightforward process which can reasonably be accomplished in well under one (1) business day. We’ve automated nearly the entire process which has allowed us to eliminate a one-time agent setup fee. We electronically sign the ICA, you pay your first monthly agent fee, we provision you a stuartstjames.com G Suite account, file the necessary affiliation paperwork with the Board, and share a welcome email with you.

Stuart St James is a Massachusetts virtual real estate brokerage with agents all across Massachusetts. Residing in Boston is not a prerequisite to join – we even have multiple agents on the team licensed in Massachusetts yet who reside out of state. You do not need to come to Boston if and when you join, there’s no need to come to Boston and we won’t ask you to do so.

Yes, real estate agents at Stuart St James are given access to a full library of professionally designed real estate marketing templates easily customized for open houses, private showings, and direct mail.
