    Pros

    Friendly agents, good educational sessions and workshops

    Cons

    When I was there the Manager/Team Leader was a recruiter not helpful when problems arose during a transaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have knowledgeable Team Leaders for support and advice when problems arise.

    Pros

    mentorship program, great office environment/culture, friendly staff, good commission split, you don't have to pay your malpractice insurance all at once

    Cons

    The location of the office is off the beaten path. Like an other real estate office, you're paid 100% from commission

    I worked at Keller Williams

    Pros

    Had a lot of autonomy in how the business was run. Had hands on decision making with clients in pricing and service levels. Hired all associates. Much like running your own business.

    Cons

    At the end the company made decisions that sent them in a downward spiral. Went from 2000 associates to 400 in less than 4 years. 850 millions in sales to 150 millions. Could not pay vendors. This became a difficult enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know you customers needs and that they are changing. Technolgy has opened many new ways to purchase and research products. It is harder to get time from our customers to explain our benifits and what we offer. Be prepared when you get the oppurtuny. Handle any issues immediately.

    Pros

    A Realtor for over 15 years, I found Keller Williams to be the best company in terms of training, technology and a supportive culture. They offer a great opportunity for additional income through their profit sharing program. I highly recommend Keller Williams for both seasoned and new agents.

    Cons

    The normal challenges that come with being a Realtor.

    Pros

    Incredible Culture, Training and Education, open books, profit sharing

    Cons

    Each office is independently owned and operated as a franchise therefore each office although given the same tools to succeed can have a different feel, education calendar etc... This is not necessarily a Con however a suggestion to meet with the Team Leader and make sure you get a feel for each office to make sure it is a good fit for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Free classes and great support system. Happy employees, Fun place to work. Profit sharing.

    Cons

    Too many fee's. None other that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When new agents join the company you should have them shadow an experienced Realtor for a few months so they can feel comfortable with writing out contracts, listing appts, etc. Although I suggest this to every Real Estate company because it seems that they all just expect us to know these things when we first start in the business and they definitely don't teach those things in Realtor school.
