    Pros

    Excellent support and programs generated by franchisor. Well represented throughout the United States to insure customer cross support across the entire system.

    Cons

    Continuous top management/ownership turnover. Some of their IT product support is difficult to reach when needed. Worth every penny of their cost to customers but nevertheless the most expensive of the competing brands.

    Advice to Management

    Staying in touch with the customer base as well as the franchisees is important. Regional managers need to be more realistic in their new product roll out expectations.

    Good for those with little ambition

    Pros

    Good place to go if you are at the end of your career and want to coast your way out to retirement or have little ambition and just want an easy 9-5. Decent pay especially for the low workload.

    Cons

    Little exposure to anything cutting edge, not a competitive company in the modern real estate market. They are 100% bound to their magazine for revenue. Cyclical hiring and firing. Their company is in a declining market. As young people who were raised on technology age real estate magazines become less relevant. They have no sustainable method to continue generating revenue long term.

    Advice to Management

    Either:
    Liquidate the company and sell it before there are no buyers left in the market.

    Or:
    Liquidate the magazine franchises, lay off associated staff and convert to a digital advertising model.


  3. Homes & Land is an okay company. All they care about is whether you can sell pages in the magazine!

    Pros

    Extremely caring and helpful managers that foster an environment for teamwork and open communication. Our clients (the franchises) are, for the most part, easy to get along with.

    Overall, this is a GREAT first job or even an excellent gateway for someone interested in real estate.

    Cons

    Not a lot of vacation days; sub-par health, vision & dental insurance benefits. As far as work is concerned: some days the work can seem monotonous and tedious. But it's encouraged to go to different departments and help out there so you're never bored.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. You guys are the best.

    Pros

    you get to make art all day long... keep a check on the housing markets... possible to make long term contacts for other work.

    Cons

    the day and week that you work is long with little to no breaks due to need.

    Advice to Management

    talk with your employees more. no one like to be given walking papers right after they get married and buy a house.
