    Pros

    At Channing Real Estate of Weichert Realtors in Cambridge MA, there has been an incredible amount of support. I recently began a career in real estate and I'm pleasantly surprised by the level of assistance by the staff and management. It's been a fun and fast start and I'm happy to work for managers with such integrity.

    Cons

    Although I think it's a pro, Getting started in this industry takes a significant amount of self motivation and it's about how hard you work. Those unwilling to do that will struggle

    Pros

    Each office is individually owned; so obviously pros and cons vary by office. I have received excellent training and support. WE have a team environment in an office of only about 10 active agents. The other agents are very willing to help new agents.

    Cons

    As in any real estate office, it is what you make it. A lot of up front work is required to get things rolling. This is time consuming and there are many initial expenses as well. This is not a get rich quick environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your support.

    I worked at Weichert Realtors part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible, so you can sometimes work around your needs. If you are successful, the financial rewards can be great.

    Cons

    There is often back-stabbing by colleagues that don't trust each other, exacerbated by the commission based real estate business. The hours are long and at times inconvenient for families, like nights and weekends. I was a single parent, so it became impossible for me. Also, unless you have someone who can support you for a year or so, it is difficult to get started, with no salary or benefits. Many fees are charged such as Multiple Listing fees, keys, etc. that can easily be over $1000 before you ever start. You might also find yourself cold-calling for new customers, because you don't get time to answer incoming calls.

    I worked at Weichert Realtors as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The manager, Rose, is very sweet and nurturing. Weichert offers full training to new agents and continued onsite training through out your career. The on site mortgage rep is EXTREMELY knowledgeable making it easier to refer your clients to him for business.

    Cons

    The office is in an old reform church. The entire office needs a complete remodel to bring it up to modern standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agents should receive a commission on referrals/closed mortgages made to the mortgage representative.
