    Pros

    Although I receive no benefits, I love my job! I work with a very diverse group of brokers, agents, and clients that bring something different to every day. Each office is independently owned/operated but the support that we receive from RE/MAX is unequaled!

    Cons

    There are no benefits since i am the only person in the office who isn't a 1099 employee.

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere, lots of help when I asked, very flexible schedule. Nice desks and computers and the people were mostly easy to get to know.

    Cons

    Very hard to get clients because there are not very many walk ins over all. It's hard to manage no income and be available at any time to go show property. So it's best to have another source of income although necessary to be available at a moments notice.

    Pros

    It's a well known Company in USA and worldwide, this make easy to do referral.

    Cons

    Very expensive company. Realtors at Re/Max have to pay monthly fees, annual fees. Also when you do a closing you have to give them 10% plus more transaction fees and have to donate at least $5 to a charity they choose.

    Pros

    I work from home. Pay a "desk fee" to RE/MAX. Having the name to work with has made my life as a Realtor a whole lot easier. The thing about just paying a fee to this Brokerage is it weeds not those who cannot sell real estate. Those who can make a great living. Easy simple and works.

    Cons

    Not good for those who cannot be self employed.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for keeping it simple.
