    Pros

    Re/Max is a great company and the brand recognition is truly there. There are Re/Max companies worldwide, and the company name speaks for itself. Well respected and known. It's a wonderful company.

    Cons

    Some of the rules that are governed by the company can be a bit restricting. There are plenty of agents within the company and most of the offices have Broker Manages that competes with the agents.

    Advice to Management

    Consider having non-competing Broker Managers as this will make some of the agents feels more confident. It is sometimes felt to be threatening when the agents have to compete against management for clients.

    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.

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice at least in my department, pay was decent, politics stayed in the upper echelons of the company from what I could tell

    Cons

    Upper level politics caused alot of shifting. pay was decent, but not great. I left because I wasnt really encouraged to learn new skills. Semi-techno-phobic atmomosphere

    Pros

    Re/Max brokerages are franchised allowing the broker/owner to customize the brokerage. Great commission splits, more opportunities to increase your split unlike some of the other national brands. Good support with webinars and training.

    Cons

    No "real" email system- email goes through a ghost server to email address of your choice- no one can figure out how to make my outgoing emails send as my Re/Max account- so/so tech support.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Although each branch is very different I feel that realtors and admin alike were always helpful.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth within the company. You have to go into the job knowing that you are essentially your own boss and are in control of your income.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much management, you are your own manager. If you don't show up you don't get leads, which means you don't get sales, and in turn no money.

    Pros

    Independence, great name brand recognition.

    Every office varies but mostly you need to handle all marketing and admin work on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Wish they offered more admin services.
