I have been working at RE/MAX as a contractor for more than 5 years

Pros

RE/MAX is the most recognizable real estate brand. They offer a good lead program, a lot of free education, and free marketing materials. RE/MAX has good training programs.

Cons

The fees are somewhat expensive, but the exposure is worth it if you are willing to work hard and take advantage of all they offer for your money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

At one point management talked about a program to help agents get more REO and short sale referrals directly from lenders, but it did not seem to pan out. Maybe they could reignite that effort.

    I worked at RE/MAX full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Broker is a high producer, although very abrasive and a borderline con artist. 95% commission split.

    Cons

    Very cutthroat culture. Broker will expect you to perform his menial tasks while not reimbursing you with either money or leads and will take your commission from you if given a chance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work to empower your employees they will be more productive for you than you can be on your own

    Great job, but all commission based.

    Pros

    The pro's are that you truly do set your own schedule and choose exactly how you want to run your business.

    Cons

    One of the biggest con's about working in real estate in general is the fact that is almost always commission based. Plus with RE/MAX you have to pay them at least $300 per month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More new agent training programs.
