Andy Daniel Group of Frisco, Texas, provides training, coaching, and mentoring for showing assistants who join the team. Beyond showing houses to prospective buyers, the person who’s hired for the role will help find homes that match a buyer client’s needs, assist in writing offers and closing deals, and other client-facing tasks. Over time, the showing assistant can become an ideal buyer’s agent for the team.
2. You’ll get a better ROI for selling buyers a home
A real estate showing assistant will help you get more money for every house you sell compared to a buyer’s agent.
You’ll likely pay a showing assistant about $25 for every home they show.
Although you probably won’t pay buyer’s agents a showing fee, you’ll be forced to pay them thousands of dollars more in sales commission for every deal they close.
By comparing these costs, you’ll see showing assistants give you the best ROI.
Your Employment Costs and ROI with a Showing Assistant vs. Buyer’s Agent
Keep in mind that depending on the current size of your team, growth trajectory, and business goals, your unique compensation plan for a showing assistant will vary.
For example if your showing assistant is ONLY showing homes, the table above is a good estimate of what you might pay.
If you don’t have a buyer’s agent: you’ll pay the showing assistant BUT you’ll earn 100% commission.
If you do have a buyer’s agent: they can pay your showing assistant BUT you’ll have to split commission.
Either way, you’ll still maximize your return on investment with minimal cost to you.

3. You’ll show and sell more homes faster than ever before
A real estate showing assistant will give you the freedom you need to show and sell more homes faster.
While they’re showing homes to your pre-qualified buyers, you’ll have more time to work on your business instead of in your business.
Your buyer’s agents will also be able to focus on generating more leads, sign more buyer representation agreements, negotiate more contracts, and close more deals.

A real estate showing assistant that can handle the busywork will help your buyer’s agents be:
- More agile. They’ll have a partner that streamlines workflow, communication, and meetings.
- More productive. They’ll have more time to focus on meeting the needs of your clients.
- More effective. They’ll have more time to research the real estate market to share better information with buyers and beat the competition to write up faster offers.
- More profitable. They’ll have a capacity for more clients which will lead to more sales.
