I have been working at Alain Pinel Realtors full-time (More than 5 years)
Best productivity tools, constantly evolving and improving the technology and tools. Upper management works hard to provide the latest information to their agents to keep them informed about changes in the marketplace on a global level. Computers and networks are always being upgraded to keep agents working with the best tools. Legal updates are provided annually, training is provided every week, and our weekly meetings are always very informative and useful!
As with most offices, the commission split for new agents is on the low side, fees paid for desk and technology are on the high side, but totally worth it. Glassdoor made me write more than I wanted. :-)
Advice to Management
Interview exiting agents to learn why they leave.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alain Pinel Realtors (Los Gatos, CA) in August 2008.
Conversation in the conference room involving a description of my past experience, motives for choosing APR, ability to support myself while starting my career. Job was not offered, but i told the interviewer I would start working on a certain date and he agreed.
Very little negotiation involved.
