The Talker: NY real estate biz offers raise for company tattoo

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Rapid Realty, a real estate brokerage in New York made its agents an interesting offer. It will permanently raise the commission rate from 25% to 40% for any agent who gets a tattoo of the company logo.

The tattoo can be any size, anywhere on the body. So far 40 of 1,100 employees have gotten inked.The company Facebook page is full of their proud photos.

Would you do this? Tell us what you think of the offer on our Facebook page.

Company owner Anthony Lolli says he got the idea from an employee who went all on his own and got the company tattoo. Lolli loved it so much, he said to the man, "How can I repay you?" The rest is history.

Agents who've gotten the tattoo spoke with a local TV station. They say the cash-for-tattoo was an easy decision. Well, most of them.

"My wife was a little concerned but I said you know what it was the best commitment that I could think of," one man said.

"I think it's a good opportunity to make a commitment to a company that makes going to work fun every day," another employee said.

The company also pays for the cost of getting the tattoo.

25 percent is the normal starting commission rate, but some of the company's more experienced agents were already getting the 40 percent rate, so the tattoo lets everyone get on that track instantly.

There are other ways to get the higher commission too, like doing charity work and mentoring a new employee.
