Pros

Opportunity. Good support staff. Good website.

Cons

Company is owned in Washington State, Oregon is given short shrift. Principal broker repeats company line, and when asked to help mediate any dispute, is more interested in avoiding conflict than doing what is right. Even when company was doing well, minimum was spent on keeping furnishings and decor up to date (it is important to have a front office appearance that is at least the equivalent of any other brokerage our clients may have occasion to visit). Very frugal ownership & management, even prior to economic downturn.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If JLS survives the current meltdown, invest in agents. Make them feel appreciated, and make your branch a place they are proud to bring their clients. Don't charge your agents for training and other essentials of business.

    Pros

    John L Scott is a great RE company with a lot of talent. There is a lot of support and resources for Realtors. The agents are typically very talented, professional, and successful, and are more than happy to provide support and advice when needed. The legal counsel and contracts are par excellence. Management has an eye on the industry, and keeps its Realtors apprised of any major trends and competitive landscape changes, as well as potential challenges and opportunities. Definitely a cut above the rest!

    Cons

    The commission split at John L Scott is high (this is typical for 'big name' brokerages).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
