    Pros

    Manager at the Oakland office is THE BEST!

    Cons

    Commission only. Have to come in every day wanting to grow and build your own business. The tools are there but you have to supply the horsepower.

    Pros

    BHG offers great tools to their agent. They are a realestate agency for todays market. As a REALTOR, your hours are flexible. In any real estate position, it is always a challenge to balance work life and personal life.

    Cons

    Large franchise fee taken out of your commission. It is typical for a franchise to do this but BHG is one of the highest I have paid in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing.

    Current Employee - Realtor in Webster, TX

    I have been working at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the freedom I have to work hours needed around my family. I love helping someone to find their dream home and also the presentation to a new listing and all that BHGRE can offer to the client.

    Cons

    All commission paid and pay your own taxes. Typical for real estate. But you only make money on the work you have done! No retirement, no 401K, no benefits. Should have a spouse that offers all of those things from their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Newbies are as valuable as top agents and can be the top agent one day.

    I have been working at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong leadership, effective tools, outstanding corporate culture. Sherry Chris, the CEO, commands respect as well as affection.

    Cons

    Can be locked into a box, with certain ways of doing things, which can stifle creativity. A little bit of staff turnover has been unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less fluff, more substance.
