    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsBeing a Real Estate Broker is not for everyone. If you are comfortable with uncertainty, are self motivated, and able to run your own business it might be great. unlimited pay, work any hours, work with who you like, no need to suffer fools.

    Consno paycheck, commission only. If you don't have some money saved the first year will be very tough. You need at least 6 months savings or a spouse to support you that long.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Concept and Training

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat training and low monthly fees.When you do business, you get to take far more of it home. The free training is better than what other companies charge for.

    ConsSo hard to get started as a new agent! Finding your own leads right off the bat is a struggle.

    Excellent Company

    Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) Bedford, NH

    ProsWhen it comes to real estate agencies Keller Wililams is a cut above the rest. They provide endless tools to succeed, mostly coming through their technology options. The office is large, clean, and has an excellent vibe and culture. Overall, Keller Williams takes care of it's agents much more efficiently than most other agencies, including a 70/30 commission structure.

    ConsDo not accept just any agent that interviews. My branch has over 250 agents working, which leads to a sometimes stressful and overwhelming environment and also makes it difficult for direct help and consulting when new to the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust limit the amount of agents per office, I understand it is how you make your money, but it will lead to more dedicated, efficient, and committed agents that appreciate the environment much more.
