    I worked at Urban Living - Texas full-time

    Pros

    Excellent high dollar leads.Great looking trendy work environment.

    Cons

    Inabilty to work as an independent contractor realtor Required to work every weekend. You can have 2 days off but not the weekend and as a real estate agent you should be able to work as much or as little as you desire as well as work from your own home office and not go to the office. management can be very unpredictable . High turnover. Commission split extremely favorable to the company. Leads not fairly distributed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat agents as independent business owners who understand if they dont work they dont eat. If they are not agents who produce whether working from home or the office simply let them go and tell them they are not a fit for the office.

    I have been working at Urban Living - Texas part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a weekend greeter, you work Saturdays and Sundays. Its a relatively easy job, talk to potential buyers and house hunters, and close up at 5pm, pick up all the signs, and return to office.

    Cons

    There's really no work culture there. You kinda go in, pick up your assigned binder, leave, come back and drop everything off. Not much room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Train your greeters a bit better so they take the position a bit more seriously

    Pros

    It is located in a beautiful location. The atmosphere is quite nice

    Cons

    Owner/CEO had a lot of enemies. The office would face a lot of threats or hazards because of it. Overtime employees were not compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees dissatisfaction. After I left, I heard of a big legal suite because emplyees were not being compensated for working over time.

    Pros

    Educational training is good. Nice store front property.

    Cons

    They will work you to death and not think twice about it. Forget having lunch!! Hours are from 9am-8pm including on the weekends, and they will give you a day off!!!

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the work load, pay more attention to the clients needs and let sales department do their jobs!
