Pricing / Guaranty
We have spoken with hundreds of hiring managers in the real estate industry prior to forming our company and learned that the primary reasons for them not utilizing retained executive search firms is that fees are too high and they are offered accelerated payment schedules based on unrealistic time or performance measures. Also, many mentioned hidden costs increasing the overall cost of the search.
Our fees were created to allow you to get the numerous benefits of partnering with a retained search firm and virtually mitigate all risk that might exist with other firms. Plus, we will conduct searches at a one-third or more savings to you compared to our other national competitors.
Retainer - We only require a $1,000 retainer to engage our services. That's less than the cost of most job postings and ensures that we are aligned with you until the succesful completion of your search.
Final Fees - Unlike the majority of other retained search firms, we will not invoice you after the retainer until a candidate has accepted an offer from you to join your organization. Our fee is then calculated at 22% of the hired candidate's actual first year compensation (to include base salary, bonus, and incentives) minus the retainer you've already paid. If your position is commission, incentive, or equity oriented, please rest assured that we can overcome any structure issues and create an agreement up front that is mutually agreeable and without surprises.
Additional Fees - We do not charge any additional administrative or other fees. We will invoice you for our travel expenses as incurred at no markup but only if you have requested and approved it beforehand.
Guaranty - We will conduct another search and identify a suitable replacement for any candidate that leaves employment with you for any reason within 90 days.
