    Pros

    Personal growth, learning to take initiative, learn ropes of the business for seasoned professional, flexible hours/schedule, can work from home

    Cons

    So much to learn regarding addendums, purchase/listing agreements, different forms required for different types of housing. All in all, its an overwhelming amount to learn for the first few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more friendly to people within the office,

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is independence and unlimited income. The individual company websites like buyandsellchicago.com are the best in the industry. Also training and networking is far superior to any other brand I have worked for. A true joy to be associated with this brand.

    Cons

    No cons about this company, simply the best in the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work keeping the brand in front of the pack

    I have been working at RE/MAX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional training and positive and super energetic work environment that promotes a sense of unity and a collaborative environment. New agents are welcomed in by seasoned professionals and are mentored and trained in Buffini or Tom Ferry real estate training programs inside the office with weekly accountability and coaching.
    Each agent is their own boss and we are professional real estate professionals who are very entrepreneurial focused, but work in a team environment and the synergy created creates high moral and high productivity. We make money and sell more homes than any other firm.
    Fabulous agent retention by a wonderful and caring broker owner who goes out of her way to make every agent feel welcomed and appreciated. Generous to a fault and very generous, she is the glue to this highly productive office. No lies written here.

    Cons

    There is so very much to learn and implement it can seem overwhelming (in a positive way).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy more ginger ale and limes.
