THE HISTORY BEHIND IT ALL

In 1965, Dale Rector opened the nation's first 100 percent commission office, Realty Executives. The concept, revolutionary at the time and now widely copied, was quite simple: Sales associates receive 100 percent of their commissions. Associates would share equally in office expenses. Offices would be coordinated by a full-time broker, whose salary was paid by the associates. The concept caught on. By 1972, the pilot operation in Phoenix, Arizona was producing the highest volume of all competitive independent real estate firms. By the '80s, with greater expansion, volume totaled more than the competitive national franchise firms in the area.

Each year, sales volume and the number of associates have grown - proof of the concept's wide acceptance and success. Realty Executives rapid growth is no surprise. Give professional sales associates an environment where they can concentrate on what they love to do - sell, and they will get results.

Through Dale Rector's vision and dedication to his new concept, the real estate industry has experienced a major change, an alternative to traditional operations that have hindered the real estate profession for many years. Realty Executives has revolutionized the real estate industry by focusing on the needs of the real estate Executives. In 2012, Realty Executives continues to adapt its systems and tools to meet the needs of agents and brokers.
