Pros

The commission is excellent. The ongoing education helps you learn more about products and concepts to help clients. Teamwork and mentoring help you succeed faster than on your own. The office is gorgeous, and extremely professional.

Cons

The waiting is difficult. There is underwriting, and clients aren't always on your schedule. And it is commission only. That being said, if you come in as an agent in training, versus an experienced agent, you receive a training allowance proportionate to your commission. If you work hard, in time you will make very good money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be kind. Not sugarcoating, just kind. Don't assume everyone has a thick skin. Agents go through so many hoops, and they have to be very patient. A little teasing is fine. Just don't take it too far. Be truthful. Be kind. Thank you.
