it's time to move on and grow your business. Sounds like you are still reliant on the company to produce leads. As such, your abilities and income will always be dependent on the company and manager.
I've spend 25 years as an investment real estate broker. It's 100% commish and you learn quickly how to survive. Similar to what you are doing but with one exception, could be a big exception for you, you source your own deals. No reliance on the manager for a lead. Investment real estate brokerage can be crazy money, highly competitive and in some respects, it's almost a requirement to eat your own in order to demonstrate you belong.
