    Pros

    The managing broker is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Hi tech paperless office. Carrington assigns REO listings to agents. REO listings plus your personal business equals a recipe for success. Carrington provides leads to agents from a national call center. Free personal website. No monthly fees paid to Carrington by the agents. Continual education and updates from a national and local perspective via meetings and online conferences. Work from home or work in the office. Initial training is online at your own pace.

    Cons

    The Orland Park office has so much business that we need 40 additional realtors. Realtors need to have computer literacy and the aptitude for reading and implementing processes.

    Pros

    The company has delivered on everything they have promised, company generated listings, training, technology that works, and support. I am amazed at what can be accomplished with a company that works as efficiently as this one does. This is the best of both worlds, a traditional office that is truly paperless so agent who choose to work from home are not constantly having to make trips to the office to drop off paperwork. This is a great company for a Broker who wants to make real estate a true career, not just a hobby.

    Cons

    No cons with the company, however, there are a lot of people who join thinking this is going to be a place where they can make money and not work. The company gives all the training and support you could ever ask for, and those who do not choose to utilize the tools they are given are the ones who wash out and complain. This is truly the future of real estate. If you are ready for the future, then this is the place to be. If you want to sit around socializing, and not getting anything accomplished, then you probably will wash out. For the person who is a professional Realtor, you could not ask for a better company.
