    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.

    Pros

    I've been with Redfin since March of 2013. From the start I have had a great deal of support from my Team Lead and Regional Manager. There is an open door policy where they are open to getting your input on pretty much everything that affects the employees. I am on a career track with the company and am being groomed to move up the ranks and am very excited about it. Everyone has great energy and we have a lot of fun while getting our jobs done. I am having a very positive experience and honestly have no complaints. I am very happy that I found Redfin I see myself with this company for years to come (and that's a first for me).

    Cons

    I don't see any cons at this time. I have enjoyed my time with the Company and am excited about what the future holds for me here.
