  3. "AC Lawrence Pros and Cons"

    • Work/Life Balance

    Former Employee - Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Licensed Real Estate Salesperson in New York, NY

    Pros

    Some really good things about working with AC Lawrence are the people you get to work with. Teaming up with other agents can be very exciting and rewarding. The firm offers lots and lots of information and listings to work with. It has a huge office and is located in a great location, close to Grand Central.

    Cons

    Cons are mostly limited to you as an individual. How well you perform mostly depends on how well you take the information and advice at hand and use it. Real Estate is not for everyone. You've got to love it to do it.

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot of room for improvement. If you see something, say something. Don't just wait for agents to ask for help, but instead offer it when you see or feel it is needed. Working together means work as a team. Also, be fair and stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    They have lots of keys, which is a good thing to see in a Listings Department. Also a new Broadway address.

    Cons

    One great big revolving door sadly. Don't expect to get great development or direction. Meet your quota quick or else!

    Advice to Management

    Try to care about your people.

    Pros

    Gives you the tools and learning experiences to succeed.

    Cons

    Every week there are 20 new recruits.
    No fluidity with the company as no one even gets the chance to learn everyones name.
    Way overly competitive within the office, in an already overly competitive market.
    Zero Exclusives, all open listings.
    Management is overwhelmed and it will affect your closing rate poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better structure.
    No need for so many new recruits on a weekly basis.
