Pull out a calculator. Does 87% equal 50%? Is 87% better than 90%? On our calculators it's true. We're not a 50% company as they'd have you believe. In fact, with your career volume, you could qualify for an 87% split at Carpenter. And that's 87% without desk fees, without transaction fees, office expenses, advertising costs and more. That's a cost we cover for you.
That's how 87% equals 50%. And how 87% is better than 90%.

Who staffs your on-call lead-generation team?
Our full-time internet lead management team monitors all incoming internet leads. When a lead comes in, they immediately notify you, the listing agent, and there’s no fee or charge. Since consumers want immediate response to their internet requests, Carpenter agents respond within two hours ... now that’s servicing the consumer!
We manage the incoming lead for you so your time is freed up. And your leads come to you, no questions.
Relocation & Global Referral Program
As an important member of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, Carpenter has a continuously growing number of relocation leads. Want some? Plus, your commission on any outgoing leads you provide is, well, greater.
List to Last: Our exclusive HOME MARKETING SYSTEM
Most brokers offer little or no marketing support to their agents. Is your “marketing system” a one-size-fits-all franchise package?” Is it anything at all?
At Carpenter Realtors®, our exclusive Home Marketing System is proof of our commitment to marketing both our listings and our agents. A commitment to greater exposure for your listings, and for you, at reduced or no costs.
Personal Branding & Design
What's your personal brand? How are you unique and how do you communicate that?
If you're not on top of your own branding, let's get started. At Carpenter, our marketing staff will help you define your unique point of difference and create all the marketing materials you want to support that (personal logo, brochure, email and direct mails campaigns and more).
National marketing experience is at your fingertips.
What's your Client Relationship Tool?
Top Producer isn’t free. But there is a program with the same features – list management, drip email campaigns, document storage and more – and it is free.
Carpenter Realtors®‘ Client Relationship Management tool is just that. Unlimited contact list management potential. Dozens of completely free email campaigns. We’re told it does what Top Producer, Smarter Agent and more can do, at a fraction of the cost. By the way, the fraction at Carpenter is 0%.
Personal Support Staff
We hear of agents who rely on their family as their support staff. They may not mind, but aren't there better ways? Give your family the day off. At Carpenter, you have the full resources of each office's support staff.
Just as nice, you're welcome in every one of our 30 offices. Stop in to use the copier or computer, grab some documents or supplies. Any office, any time.
We're known as the training company for good reason. And it's not just for new people in the business. Ongoing professional training, at reduced costs or free, is a regular part of our program.
Plus, can you name the growing company that hasn't closed an office during this recession and - in fact - has opened two new offices. Your chance for advancement beyond sales and into management, is much stronger with new offices and growth on the horizon.
Team up! Suites Available! (and teams are ok!)
Tired of mismatched cubicles for your team? Well, Carpenter Realtors® has a team mentality. And not just with a complete team website or a team CRM program, mind you. We’re remodeling our offices to allow for team suites. When you need it, you have private space for your team members. We call it Operation French Door and it’s a suite deal.
If you have a team or are thinking of building one, we need to talk.
Errors and Omissions Peace of Mind
You're paying WHAT?!? How does $180/year and NO deductible sound? Like beautiful music - that's what we thought. Let's repeat.
$180 and no deductible.
$180 and no deductible.
$180 and no deductible.
Cost Control: A True Partnership (click here to compare your current expenses to what Carpenter pays, shares with you)
Since when does it make sense to pay for things you don’t need? So why are you paying a monthly fee for a desk or a phone? For signage and office products? For document “storage” and transaction fees?
In today’s market, you need a broker who’s a business partner. Why would you pay your bills and your broker’s monthly bills, too? At Carpenter, we carry the risk. We cover office expenses. We absorb increasing advertising and marketing costs.
If your budget has a line for “professional expenses” that pays your broker’s bills, delete it.
Exciting 2012 Commission Plan

Give us a chance to show you how, with our support and lower out-of-pocket costs, you can take home more money when you're with Carpenter.
