COMMISSION EXPRESS was founded in the Washington, DC metropolitan area in 1992 by two highly experienced real estate brokers who, after managing offices and owning their own companies, recognized that agents and brokers needed a reliable solution to their cash flow problems. Their goal was to put their experience to work helping other real estate professionals build their businesses and achieve their dreams.
As Independent Contractors operating small independent businesses, the agents and brokers had marketable accounts receivable from earned but unsettled sales commissions. The founders conceived an idea to purchase the accounts receivable at a discount, a process known as factoring. They operated for five years developing the protocols, computer database, forms and reports that were the basis for the current COMMISSION EXPRESS system.
By 1996, the service had become so popular that the founders began offering franchises of the COMMISSION EXPRESS business model to entrepreneurs nationwide. Today, with offices in most major metropolitan areas, COMMISSION EXPRESS is the most popular provider of cash flow for real estate agents and brokers throughout the country.
COMMISSION EXPRESS has advanced nearly 170,000 commissions totaling hundreds of millions of dollars and is the only franchised real estate commission advance company in the country.
