    Pros

    This company facilitates the sharing of ideas, and friendliness between agents.

    Cons

    They aren't tech savvy. Their tools for realtors are much too outdated, and I often knew more about their products than their technical professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp agent sites/online tools. Make things more user-friendly and more customizable, not so cookie cutter.

  2. Great atmosphere

    Pros

    Flexible hours, You are your own boss, independent franchise that varies in management, unlimited opportunity, unlimited income opportunity, meet new people (social)

    Cons

    Must be disciplined and a go getter, lots of competition, unsteady income, work nights and weekends, lack of health benefits, lots of paperwork

    Advice to Management

    Offer health and benefits packages or make available for your agents. I have no complaints with advertising support for franchises.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great people to work with, access to Sanctuary golf course.

    Cons

    Politics - advancement is all about who likes you, and has nothing to do with work performance. Also, employees are by in large underpaid compared to similar roles at comparable companies.

    Pros

    Freedom to schedule appointments, showings, meetings at times most convenient to agent and client. No mandatory meetings.

    Cons

    No lucrative leads provided by the company. No reimbursement for the expenses involved in doing business. Agent responsible for all aspects of running his/her business. At times very challenging to get buyers qualified for financing with reputable lenders.

    Advice to Management

    It's a fact that agents stay longest with brokers who provide the highest level of adminisrative support and generous commission splits.

  9. Training by the best with actual experience
