    I have been working at William Raveis Real Estate full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the flexibility that comes from working for a small office with a global reach. Curry Realtors has partnered up with William Raveis to bring you the best of marketing and technology with a knowledge of the local market.

    Cons

    One of the hard parts of working here is the slow market as of the time of this review. That is an industry wide problem in NH but is set to improve in the near future I am sure.

    Agents were very professional to deal with. Along with some of the mangers, not all.

    Think twice before you hire. Hire managers with more communication skills

    I have been working at William Raveis Real Estate as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They give us the best tools in the industry at no cost to us. We are treated great and rewarded for good work. Bill Raveis tells us we are his clients and needs to treat us right. The training is outstanding, especially when some thing new comes on the market.

    Cons

    I have not found any yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at William Raveis Real Estate full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Lead System
    Beautiful Office
    Some upper management are helpful and knowledgeable

    Cons

    Some management should not be in management
    Benefits are very poor
    Too much work for one person-requires too many task for simple things
    Company is run too lean and everyone seems overworked and stressed- morale is low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put Sales Managers in charge of sales people. If you are not in sales then you have no idea
    Spend the money to hire enough people to efficently run the company
    Reward good employees and stop the bully mentality

    Nice people but job doesn't pay.

    Former Employee - Accounting in Shelton, CT

    I worked at William Raveis Real Estate

    Pros

    Overall, nice group of people though senior level people tend not to interact with lower level staff

    Cons

    Pays poorly and layoffs occur regularly, as needed. No job security if you're not an agent. Not a good health plan, and it's more expensive than most any other place I've worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know who works for you.

    Company treats agents well, but as with many RE companies, will treat big fish much better.

    Pros

    Leading edge when it comes to technology.

    Cons

    The split could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your loyal employees a bit better and don't defer everything to the next level of management.

    I have been working at William Raveis Real Estate

    Pros

    Great Internet Website
    Name recognition

    Cons

    Senior management cater only to the top producers
    Many fees attached to everything
    Little company support in print advertising for the fees we pay
    Incompetent managers, managers who know nothing about the town their managing in.
    Incoming Calls are funneled though customer service dept and then there's a 35% fee paid to Raveis
    There's a 6% marketing fee off the top of every transaction commission.
    On relocation they cap your commission at 60% then they take out 45% for relo then the 6% mkgt fee so you make next to nothing and work very hard for it. It's highway robbery!
    Not many incoming customer calls because everything goes to the call center and then you pay the 35% to Raveis for the lead.
    This company is so greedy, they do not care about the sales agents, they only care about the people who work in the corporate office and the top producers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the referral fees going back to the company. Hire managers who can manage and know the towns their managing in.

    They lie and you're only valued if your perform - No communication

    Current Employee - Agent

    I have been working at William Raveis Real Estate

    Pros

    They have a very good web site and pretty offices

    Cons

    The management gives deals out to favorite agents - They lie when you ask them for the same package, and they don't care about the people. They would rather screw you for the all mightly dollar then keep a good morale. If someone leaves or is fired, no one knows about it because there is simply no communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak to the agents directly and ask for feedback on how this can be a better place to work. There is virtually no interaction between agents and upper management in HQ
