    I worked at Coldwell Banker full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The marketing for listings is phenomenal. They provide sufficient resources to properly train and agent.

    Cons

    Management is not properly trained to deal with different sales personality. They are rigid in their approach to sales, not allowing for agents to properly take the lead in their own success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth in management style would allow agents to become more successful, training sessions are not taken seriously because the sessions are seen as a venting session as oppose to a time for informative review.
