We Believe in Co-Brokerage

At SVN Rock Advisors Inc., we believe in Co-Brokerage. We believe the industry as a whole, and everybody in it, benefits if brokers work together to bring deals to the wider marketplace. We believe that, by working together as an industry, we can generate more and better business for all. If you’re interested in co-brokering with us, we’d love to hear from you.


50% Commission. 100% of the Time.

We believe in sharing fees to give incentive to a wider network of buyers. With an expansive network comes higher visibility and increased demand, resulting in a higher value for clients.


The 9.6% Report

Compensated cooperation guarantees that equitable co-brokerage fees are paid on all properties, and not only to brokers within the same company, but to any and all outside brokers involved. When fees and buyer pools are shared, properties generate a higher demand and price, resulting in the most value for everyone involved.
