    Pros

    Agents are given good training and education. The administrative office support is better than most. The company's presence on the internet is better than most agencies.

    Cons

    The company offers bad commission splits, especially to new agents. Some rules are archaic. Top performing agents are given preferential treatment and are allowed to break the company rules.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all agents fairly. Stop adding new rules that make it more difficult for agents to compete against newer more flexible agencies.

    Pros

    Great training program, particularly for new agents. Nice offices. Basic administrative support at each office. Good team support. The offices are run by managers who typically don't do real estate, but have in the past. They are not only very experienced but are able to dedicate more time to you because they aren't busy with their own real estate transactions.

    Cons

    Low commission split plus Admin Fee for each transaction, plus an additional Service Fee added to client representation contracts (NRT only) for both buyers and sellers. I usually waive this fee for my clients as I don't agree with charging them any additional fee's outside the usual commission. All this combined can put quite a dent in your commission.

    Advice to Management

    Be present. Some managers are more present and available than others.

    Pros

    Independence and freedom of running your own business. Able to get out what you put into your work. Working with people and making friends for life.

    The pay structure is 100% commission plus the expense of your office and advertising can become costly especially during start up.
