Night and day, black and white, hot and cold, yin and yang are understandable polar opposites. Apply this concept to the way in which Benchmark Realty does business, compared to the traditional agency, and you’ll understand there is a new road being paved by broker Phillip Cantrell.

Founded in March 2006 out of frustration with the traditional brokerage model, Cantrell made the bold move just prior to the housing crisis of 2008 reformatting and then re-launching Benchmark with just five agents.  Today, the agency has over 340 agents in two offices, with a third office opening soon in Nashville, and has been honored as one of the 2012 “Best Places To Work” by the Nashville Business Journal.

Cantrell says, “our uniqueness is based on our 100% commission model which allows the individual agent complete autonomy in managing their own transactions.”

Take a look at this infographic to get a better understanding of how this plays out for the individual agent.

Cantrell says the infographic is a bold illustration of the way in which Benchmark is doing business more successfully.

“Since our re-launch, all five key indicators we track – gross sales, gross commission income, net profits, transaction count, and agent count – have doubled each year over the prior year consistently for the past four years. This positive growth has been during the deepest recession this country has ever experienced, “ Cantrell said.
