    You WILL make money here!

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Fairfax, VA

    ProsProfit sharing, latest tech tools, emphasis on Lead Generation. Unique in being an interdependent company with open books. Agents cooperate, not compete.

    Consemphasis on production over service. Frequently new agents don't know enough agency law prior to running appointments,

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe have an orientation for new agents - more than this is the coffee pot here's the printer -- an immersion in company culture..

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Keller Williams is second to none in the industry for training.

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Carlsbad, CA

    ProsThe culture & the reputation behind the name.

    ConsHigh expectation for the ALC members to chair committees and conduct training and mentoring for new agents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more support to the ALC members in regards to their time as they also have a business to run while donating their time to assist in training and mentoring. Update BOLD scripts training to incorporate short sale and current market conditions.

    great team atmosphere

    Realtor (Former Employee) Temecula, CA

    Prosthe tools available to new agents are great. Had a large amount of resources available to me and the community outreach was amazing.

    ConsThe company is willing to help with anything but not the other agents. They were more concerned about your numbers before associating with you.

    Advice to Senior Managementstop looking at TOP performers and scoop up those new agents who need attention and guidance.

    Private contractor

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsBeing a Real Estate Broker is not for everyone. If you are comfortable with uncertainty, are self motivated, and able to run your own business it might be great. unlimited pay, work any hours, work with who you like, no need to suffer fools.

    Consno paycheck, commission only. If you don't have some money saved the first year will be very tough. You need at least 6 months savings or a spouse to support you that long.

    Great Concept and Training

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat training and low monthly fees.When you do business, you get to take far more of it home. The free training is better than what other companies charge for.

    ConsSo hard to get started as a new agent! Finding your own leads right off the bat is a struggle.

    Excellent Company

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Bedford, NH

    ProsWhen it comes to real estate agencies Keller Wililams is a cut above the rest. They provide endless tools to succeed, mostly coming through their technology options. The office is large, clean, and has an excellent vibe and culture. Overall, Keller Williams takes care of it's agents much more efficiently than most other agencies, including a 70/30 commission structure.

    ConsDo not accept just any agent that interviews. My branch has over 250 agents working, which leads to a sometimes stressful and overwhelming environment and also makes it difficult for direct help and consulting when new to the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust limit the amount of agents per office, I understand it is how you make your money, but it will lead to more dedicated, efficient, and committed agents that appreciate the environment much more.

    ProsThere are many free training opportunities . The principle brokers are almost always available and are very helpful.

    ConsNot the best commission split for a new agent trying to break into the real estate field.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Intern

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNice staff and always looking to help clients

    ConsDo not seem to be a very desirable field. why work for a company if you're working for yourself?
