Frequently Asked Questions

Do I earn a salary in real estate?
No – Skogman Realty agents are paid strictly on commission using our commission schedule. The harder you work and the more you sell, the more money you will make. Your income potential is limitless.

Are there any insurance benefits in real estate?
Each sales associate is responsible for his or her own insurance. You have the choice to pick whichever carrier you would like, or you can use a spouse’s insurance plan if that is an option.

What are my hours?
Once you graduate from the Development Center, you are able to set your own hours. But keep in mind that much of your prospecting comes from holding open houses on Saturdays and Sundays. Another large portion of your hours will be working when it is convenient for your clients, which is usually after 5 pm and on the weekends.

I don’t know anything about Real Estate, what do I do?
The Skogman EdgeUcation Center will give you all the tools you need to be successful in the real estate business.

How many people actually succeed in real estate?

How do I pay my taxes?
As an Independent Contractor, Skogman Realty does not withhold taxes. Many of your expenses are tax deductible items, including your mileage! Most agents file quarterly tax returns, but everyone is encouraged to contact their personal tax adviser.

When can I start selling?
As soon as you get your license and are affiliated with a broker, you are ready to start selling!
