It is true What They Say: RE/MAX is FEE/MAX

Broker Associate (Former Employee)

I worked at RE/MAX full-time for less than a year

ProsNational Affiliate with international name recognition.

ConsBroker Splits are high. The Split with the company and the head broker as well as the fees were too high. Many leads were promised but not fulfilled. The head office broker that interviewed me promised leads ready to go which was not the case at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore formal training programs and better lead flow

Gives the tools needed to succeed in a competitive environment.

Realtor (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at RE/MAX as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsGreat professional environment. I know they are all independently owned, but professionalism goes throughout all the offices. Leadership is usually consistent from company to company and overall philosophies don't waiver.

ConsIt has a reputation as being an expensive company to work for, but that is usually offset by higher production by the agents over time.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere can always be greater emphasis on agent development. And corporate should promote from the agent ranks rather than going to outside sources when possible.

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

Treated Poorly, Pay is low, Boring Work

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

I worked at RE/MAX full-time for less than a year

ProsSupervisor was understanding, hours 9-5 were great, no weekends, simple minded work

ConsRealtors treat you like you are beneath them, if they do not have work then you have no work and it's BORING, pay is awful - no benefits, no set amount of yearly vacation, sick, etc., technology is all outdated (even the phone system)!

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through when you say you will reassess pay after the 90 day mark, speak with realtors about giving respect to EVERYONE,
