I closed a $5,000,000 deal in 2021, my largest sale so far, and had no complaints about the commission and really enjoyed that deposit!

The Sherman Antitrust Act forbids me to discuss this with you.


All I can say is that I negotiate my own fees with all of my sellers, whether they be multi-million dollar or $400K sellers.

Let's say you are in the business of selling shopping malls or large apartment complexes.  You aren't going to sell one a week.  Also, it requires a little bit more than putting it on the MLS to find a buyer.  So the commissions are higher, but the work and expenses are higher as well.

I am with Debe Maxwell, CRS on this, Richie. 

I also negotiate my fees with seller clients.  The negotiated amounts are private, personal, and confidential.

Sorry... but no way am I discussing any commission structures in this forum. All commissions are negotiable regardless of the price of a property.

In my experience, the handful of big players I've had were far less concerned with the "pennies" they were paying in commisions, than the smaller players were.

Go to your MLS and look for a house in Pebble Beach and the cobroke is right there. About half of them are $5M and up.   I've bought and sold several in Pebble Beach for clients.

1. Big.
2. Yes. But likely the work risk and liability are higher. You're dealing with guys with big pockets and attorneys. Also they will expect you to spend and spend lavishly to market and sell their properties.
3. Yeah of course, if I recall correctly there was a gal around long ago who sold ONE big dollar property and talked about it a bit . . . and I 'think' the split was 'a split we'd balk at in the lower price points' but it was a lot at the end, even when split among partner, team and after costs.

All commissions are negotiable and it is an individual decision as to what you are worth and what a seller is willing to pay.

I have seen some large commissions when we purchased or sold land and office buildings.
