Frequently Asked Questions

What is Realty Point?

A Powerful Brokerage Platform

Realty Point was established by experienced real estate professionals that wanted to create a platform that allows successful real estate brokers the opportunity to own their own real estate brokerage without the major expenses or staffing issues that traditional brokerages have.

How is Realty Point different from other real estate brokerage franchises?

A Boutique-Style Brokerage with the Power of a Franchise

The traditional real estate brokerage franchise is top-heavy in franchise and marketing fees and short on administrative support. With them once you have signed the franchise agreement you are on your own to set-up and manage your real estate brokerage business.

Realty Point, on the other hand, leads you through completing the paperwork that is required to file as you deal with the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) and your local real estate board. We complete the necessary paperwork for you to get your brokerage up and running (aside from your incorporation and banking requirements).

How much does a franchise cost?

Minimized Costs to Maximize Profits

Your initial investment to open a Realty Point franchise brokerage starts with a fixed franchise fee of $5,000 for a 5-year franchise term.

Variable start-up costs include your incorporation fees, lawyer and accountant fees as you setup your brokerage. Additionally, there are the back-office technology set-up costs.

Generally, your total start-up investment is about $15,000.

What is included in a franchise?

Full-Service Staffed Brokerage Offices and Brokerage Back-Office Technology

Realty Point supplies the front-office staff responsible for 24/7 phone answering, appointment setting and confirmations, in-person client greeting, MLS listings and deal secretary.

Realty Point also manages your compliance areas with RECO and your local real estate board.

As you grow your brokerage through recruiting, we handle the agent transfers, training and ongoing administration required to keep your brokerage running smoothly.

Where will my brokerage franchise be located?

Are there any ongoing fees?

What products will I have access to sell?

Realty Point Brokerages Can Add-on to Their Success With Pre-Construction Sales
