the platinum difference
It really is that simple
Platinum Realty is the original and only true 100% commission company in the Midwest. No more splitting commissions with brokers, monthly fees or contracts. On each transaction, Platinum Realty is compensated with $395 per transaction. And to make things even sweeter, there is no monthly fee or start-up fees!
The catch is, there is no catch!
It’s really no secret. Platinum Realty was founded by agents in 2005 with the agent of today in mind. Platinum Realty was built, brick-by-brick, to provide maximum value, support, and convenience to agents while allowing them to earn more.
Here’s how we do it:
100% Debt-Free Company – Yes, completely, 100% debt-free! From day one, Platinum Realty has never needed to pass along operations costs to our agents. Our debt-free status allows us to operate more efficiently compared to other brokerages. This gives Platinum Realty agents the opportunity to keep more of what they earn! Join us today and eliminate office fees and commission splits!
Real People. Real Support – There’s no doubt about it, we are an agent-focused company where you are priority number one. Supporting you is OUR job, and we take it very seriously. Our knowledgeable and experienced Agent Support Team is designed to provide quick and accurate information – when you need it. Have a question? Need additional resources or guidance? We’re here for you!
Advanced On-The-Go Technology – At Platinum Realty, we know what it’s like to be an agent. In the office or in the field, you need to get things done in a timely manner. Accessibility isn’t just a convenience – it’s a must. We’re a paperless company and have streamlined our business practices with the latest technology and systems that let agents stay organized and up to date on all of their transactions while at home or on the road.
Convenient Locations, contemporary offices – Platinum is growing and so are our offices! We are proud to serve agents through offices in six Midwestern markets. Each office is designed with contemporary, sleek features and is outfitted with modern and advanced technology to provide agents with the top tools needed to complete transactions. The best part? Agents have access to all offices, regardless of their home base. We want you to be the best you can be wherever you are!
Proven Practices – Nothing is worse than having to jump through hoops just to get the job done when it’s simply not necessary. We have a true understanding of what our agents need to win. At Platinum Realty, we have utilized our experience as agents to help create processes and procedures that eliminate unnecessary waste of time and resources, giving our agents a step-up in executing more transactions successfully. When our agents are successful, we are successful.

Agent Support Center
Have a question? Agents have 24-hour access to our proprietary Agent Support Center that acts as a virtual broker. Thousands of our most frequently asked questions are available at their fingertips, with more information added daily. This easy-to-navigate tool is just one more benefit you receive as a Platinum Agent.
Rather than fit agents into our educational culture, we design it around them. Platinum Realty agents are entrepreneurs at heart; business owners interested in growing business and closing sales. They are more apt to be on the move, out in the community, not sitting still in a classroom for hours. We know their time is better spent on building relationships and making sales. Therefore, we offer ongoing, relevant educational opportunities that are hosted live on the Web and personal mentorships to match the entrepreneurial mindset.
These aren’t your usual, boring, run-of-the-mill classes. No classroom or testing required. No shoes required either. Platinum Realty’s weekly classes are online anytime, so you can put up your feet at the coffeehouse or home or wherever you happen to be and catch up the latest industry trends and tools.
This is the type of information you need to wow your buyers and sellers with just how smart you are about the industry and where it’s going.
Get inspired. Learn something new. Brush up on your skills. Like Netflix for agents, Platinum TV serves up an extensive library of videos you can stream any time over the Internet. Choose one of our newest videos or binge watch from one of our popular playlists.
New Agent Program
NEW TO REAL ESTATE? WE HAVE A PROGRAM DESIGNED JUST FOR YOU! The first three months is an exciting time for a rookie agent. Eager. Driven. Telling everyone you meet that you are a new agent. During your first 12 weeks with us, you’ll go through training and be assigned a personal mentor. This person is your real estate Sherpa, guiding you through all types of situations and answering your questions along the way. We know a new career can lose its luster very quickly after 3 months if you don’t have the tools you need to succeed. After training, you’ll have the knowledge (and ongoing support) to be successful.
Experienced agents joining Platinum Realty can use the 12-week program to re-engage. Reignite your passion for real estate. As a reminder for why you got into the field to begin with.
Here’s what the 12 weeks involve:
- 4 weeks of training from a nationally recognized real estate trainer
