Great company with a strong reputation and very high standards

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Corcoran Group as a contractor for more than a year

ProsReputable company that abides by the rules.
Office managers knowledgeable.
You are given a mentor that can help guide you through the first 6 months as an agent.
Flexible schedule.

ConsLots of fees associated with being an agent, including desk/marketing fee, legal fee, and high commission splits to Corcoran. Also very much an independent contractor position, so you are on your own much of the time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great managers... Very ethical & professional...

Licensed Real Estate Broker (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Corcoran Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMost agents will bend over backwards to help you if they can, top notch database and website, excellent marketing materials for their agents to use, best brand name out there (#1 real estate firm in Manhattan and Brooklyn). Ongoing training available to keep agents at the top of their game. I have really enjoyed working here.

ConsIf you are not one of the top agents at the company, you will never get any press & some of your needs may go ignored. Splits are rumored to be lower than at other firms.
