    Current Employee - Lead Agent in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Redfin full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I began my career at Redfin in a new market which provided tons of opportunities for real estate education and growth. In 3 years' time I was promoted from Associate Agent to Lead. Mind you, I work hard for my clients, and put forth my best every day to make it happen. Anyone new to real estate, 0-3 years, (or re-entry) Redfin is the perfect place to learn while you earn. Anyone with experience can feel confident serving clients with the backing and support of a corporation. Trust and believe you must come to the table fearless,
    self-motivated and ready to put the customer first.

    I absolutely love what I do, and can easily spend 60 hours a week doing it, but it's nice to know when I need time off, that I have team and management support. Create your own schedule!

    Relaxed, casual atmosphere and fun vibe. Who else has a ping pong table in the meeting room, and wine/beer in the fridge?

    Ability to help others in their real estate career.

    Cons

    In a perfect world, there would be no cons. However, a few needed improvements that come to mind are:
    1.Better HQ communication to the local markets.
    2. More and better local trainings on systems, real estate operations
    3. Local marketing

    I have been working at Redfin full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a Redfin agent you do receive lots of leads and get a monthly salary with benefits for you and your family.

    Cons

    The leads don't transcend into dollars for the agents, only dollars for the company. The customer rebate is greater than what the real estate agent is paid for their bonus based solely on a client survey and sales prices of a home. The monthly salary for agents is minuscule and Redfin agents are definitely not the best paid agents in the industry. Redfin advertises their agents as having a team but the team is only looking out for themselves. Blocking out your schedule so you are never available to work/tour clients is not the team approach, in my opinion. In my experience as a Redfin agent, your team stabs you in the back whenever they have an opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management with more experience and stop hiring inexperienced agent.
