My buddy wants me to be a mortgage broker with him, what should I ask for?

He's offering $1000 a month salary plus 30% splits.

He mentioned something like starting at 60% before? But I'm new so he's starting me at 30%?


why on earth would you enter the mortgage business at this time?

I'm unclear about the situation. Are you currently working with this guy and he is starting his own mortgage company?
