    Flexible hours, no coffee runs, good music playing throughout the day. You learn a lot about business and office culture, while picking up a lot about real estate. All the upper-ups know what they're doing, and provide helpful feedback and constructive criticism.

    Cons

    office with lots of moving parts (people)

    I worked at RE/MAX as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    ReMax Midtown has a great, competitive internship program for detail-oriented people that are willing to work hard. The company is growing fast, and the management staff here helps those who perform well launch careers. The office environment is great, as everyone works as a team and is very supportive and helpful towards one another's tasks.

    Cons

    There aren't any true cons of working at this company -- your opportunities here are as great as you are willing to work for.

    Pros

    Broker is extremely helpful in offering any assistance regarding contracts etc. The process is streamlined and you have someone there to check your contract and help streamline them for you. The fees are reasonable for an established agent.

    Cons

    Not very good for a newly licensed agent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training and monthly meetings.
