Pros

Leading company in all of Wisconsin. Has the most tools for your career. Great internal training programs to improve your performance.

Cons

Unfortunately, benefits cannot be shared with real estate agents as you are a independent contractor. This is not a negative, it is the same for all realtors, not for support staff.

    Pros

    Shorewest has the market-share in the area that it operates.

    Cons

    The downsides are they do not fufill any of the promises they make to their new agents. They promised free coaching, free signage, one-on-one mentoring just to name a few things but never delivered. I was told by the office manager in oak creek not to contact the owners for anything. If I had a problem to go to her directly. That is fine but most of the problems were caused by her lack of management skills to begin with. This also totally negates the owners "open-door" policy. I am not sure if the problems I encountered happen at all of the Shorewest offices. I know other agents that started at the same time as me went to different offices and one og them received the coaching that was promised but several of the agents at my office just laughed when I asked them about it. "good luck with that" was their reply. I was also promised signs with my name and pic on it but was charged for them when they arrived. They did give me a paper sign with the word shorwest and an arrow on it. They also make floor time mandatory but have no receptionist to answer the phones. It basically breaks down to you becoming a receptionist 2-3 times a week for 3-4 hours at a time. Other companies require you to be in the building but at least you can work on your listings and such. Shorewest has you sending faxes and answering phones. Hire an administrative person to handle those activities. It is unfair to expect your agents who are paying you to work there to have to perform those types of duties. You also get charged for alot of the services Shorewest offers whether you use them or not. ShorewestTV is a perfect example. I never had an advertisement on it and did not use it in my marketing plan but was still forced to pay for it. This is but one example of MANY charges that I was charged but did not use. Don't be suckered in to joining this firm. Almost every other agent I talked to outside of Shorewest said that I would be better off going elsewhere. They prey on new agents that don't know the ropes. They were right.......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promising the world to prospective agents and tell them the truth!!! You tell people what you think they want to hear when in reality all we want is honesty.
