    Equal Pay Analysis: How Redfin Pays Women and Men - @Redfin

    In America this year, women are earning 78% of what men earn. Some of this may be due to gender differences in income-seeking behavior, but much of it is due to sexism. It's hard to advance the idea that capitalism is a force for good when it has so often been this unfair.

    Today, we're launching Book It Now, an online tool that makes booking a home tour as fast and easy as ordering a car service or making a dinner reservation online: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIKvj

    Redfin Introduces 'Book It Now' for On-Demand Home Tours

    Even in real estate, that oldest and most careful of all businesses, speed wins. That's especially true in places like Denver or San Francisco, where a third of all listings are under contract 48 hours after their debut. Short of paying more, the simplest way to buy a home others want is to see it first, online and in person.

Our mission is to reinvent real estate in the consumer’s favor.

Redfin got its start inventing map-based search. 

Everyone told us the easy money was in running ads for traditional brokers, but we couldn’t stop thinking about how different real estate would be if it were designed from the ground up, using technology and totally different values, to put customers first. 

So we joined forces with agents who wanted to be customer advocates, not salesmen. 

Since these were our own agents, we could survey each customer on our service and pay a bonus based on the review. 

We deepened our technology beyond the initial search to make the home tour, the listing debut, the escrow process, the whole process, faster, easier and worry-free. 

And we gave customers more value, not just by saving each thousands in fees, but by investing in every home we sell, by measuring our performance and improving constantly. 

This is how real estate would be if it were designed just for you, because, well, it was. -

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Redfin.

    Interview

    The executive I interviewed with was 30 minutes late, and checked his phone, walked in and out of the interview, and even audibly passed gas during the interview. He was such a mess it was hard to concentrate. There were way too many interviews with way too many people over way too many months. It turned me off to actually ever working there.
