We have so much drama with our leasing agents over commissions for both new leases and renewals. Has anyone tried to do away with them all together and just pay them a higher rate$/hour?

What is the drama? Maybe you need new leasing agents.

I have a new girl that is thinking just because she may have talked to somebody that it should be her lease. I’m about to lose my mind! Mind you her name is nowhere in the trail of contacts!

Nope, since I've been in the biz, it's always been the first person who shows the apartment gets the commission.

Have you tried splitting commission? I've always disliked the drama of "that's HER lease, not mine" when the prospect calls, comes in, or needs help.

So I changed it to all are split evenly at one site.
Another site, the mgr got 25% of all commission, the asst got 25%, and the leasing agent got 50%.. everyone began working together much better at that point

Completely disagree! Showing an apartment is the smallest part of the transaction these days. If you want to play it that way, that person better do every bit of the paperwork and have every “i”dotted and “t” crossed. Just showing an apartments isn’t doing the job. If you leave the rest to everyone else, you don’t deserve (and aren’t getting) the commission in my offices.

I like splitting if you have a team oriented staff if you don't then there lies the problem. We should all be a team!
