    Pros

    Got to work with a diverse group of energetic, fun people. It was a great way to learn the city and different neighborhoods. Schedule is flexible and you get to see different buildings throughout the city.

    Cons

    The job is commission-based, so there are good months and bad months. It can be very seasonal, I did very well in the summers but the winters were tough.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage new employees to focus on both the sales and rental aspects of the position. Embrace technology since renters and buyers are more sophisticated with streeteasy and rental apps.

    Pros

    great database, large well known company

    Cons

    6 deal minimum in 6 months, which is hard for first time real estate agents, especially for off season beginners.

    Advice to Management

    too much pressure for making a deal, doesn't often help with the agent making a deal.

    Pros

    It is the only company that trains salespeople out of licensing and has higher level coaching for experienced agents. The workshops and seminars on how to prospect for sellers and landlords in unique to this company.

    Cons

    The biggest struggle at Citi Habitats is the same found in every other real estate firm in the country: you need to figure out where to generate leads that want to work with you because of your talent and reputation. Advertising on the internet is a small piece of a brokers business but for many remains the only business they have.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that each opinion is heard from your staff. Sometimes the best ideas are from those who haven't been with the company the longest.
