The heartbeat of a successful real estate office is its administrative professional staff. They are the plate-spinners and the glue that holds the operation together. When EXIT Realty’s Founder and Chairman, Steve Morris, was constructing the company’s business model, he felt so strongly about the invaluable contribution of a brokerage’s support staff, he built right into the EXIT Formula a provision to pay them an annual bonus as a special thank you. To-date, the company has paid more than $6 million in these bonuses to staff who don’t even work for the corporation.
A portion of every transaction fee received by EXIT Realty Corp. International is set aside and paid to the administrative professionals in the brokerages where the transaction fees were generated. On Administrative Professionals Day, four of EXIT’s former Administrators of the Year reflected on what receiving the annual bonus means to them.

I have been a part of the EXIT family since 2003. Not only do I receive support from my franchise office and brokers, but I receive support on the corporate level unlike any company I have ever worked for. The Administrative Bonus is something I truly appreciate, and it shows just how the company supports all of their EXIT family and how they are always giving back. EXIT is not just a company but a support system professionally and personally.

I would like to thank Steve Morris and EXIT Realty Corp. International for my Admin Bonus. The Admin Bonus has helped me by paying off some bills. My husband lost his job during COVID-19 and unemployment <payments> took a couple of months before receiving. <The Admin Bonus> was a true blessing and I appreciate it very much.

Personally, I like to use my bonuses towards family vacations – we’re making memories and not holding back:). Just this past spring break my husband and I went to Florida with the kiddos. While we were there, I booked a private boat, Captain and all, that took us on a spectacular daytrip all around the Island. It was absolutely amazing, and I didn’t feel the least bit guilty for splurging! More importantly though, I love that I get to surprise my other Administrator with this bonus each year! The first year she was with us, I kept it a surprise just to see her reaction😊! Now, she knows it’s coming, but it’s still wonderful see the smile on her face when she gets it each year! Makes me proud to be part of EXIT!

The Administrative Bonuses enable us to reward staff efforts and affect their lives in a positive way. Members of our team have used their bonuses towards their children’s college educations, purchase vehicles, take well deserved vacations, and some simply deposit into their savings accounts or investment accounts. When the checks arrive, we take that opportunity to sit down with each recipient to engage in one-on-one conversations of gratitude for their hard work and dedication to our company. This is an amazing program.
EXIT Realty Corp. International is grateful for everyone who contributes to the company’s success in a support capacity. You are valued, appreciated and honored, today and every day.
