    Pros

    Wonderful opportunity to meet people and network with fellow Realtors.

    Cons

    Public perception is the Brand pays the Realtors directly, they do not understand what working for commission really means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base pay for Realtors under your brand,additional income would be commissioned, it all evens out in the end.
    Lots of attrition because in lean times there in NO pay.
