    I have been working at Allen Tate full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Allen Tate provides a huge amount of support and training. There is no paying for each time you use the copier or printer here. Allen Tate will offer you so much training that you will have to tell them that enough is enough.

    Cons

    Because of the amount of support and company-paid expenses such as signs and lockboxes, the split with the company is a little less favorable than what you see with other firms.

      I worked at Allen Tate full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Salary was competitive to the industry.

      Cons

      This company has a strong history of discrimination in the mortgage workplace against people of color. They don’t employ any minorities in management and executive level positions even if you apply for them. They don’t have any minorities working as loan officers which I found disturbing. Only 5% of the mortgage staff is minorities. They had one black team lead but laid him off because the white employees he managed kept...

      I have been working at Allen Tate full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I really like the fact that my branch leader is not splitting her time between the office and servicing her own clients. I can always reach out day or night and actually see her face-to-face during the week with her open door policy. The fact that our branch leader was a recent top producer with Allen Tate gives me added assurance that I'm being guided in the right direction to build my business. This office consists...

      Cons

      Wish we had an office at the beach where I could work out of when I'm there. We do have over 50 offices in North & South Carolina, just not one at the beach.

      Advice to Management

      Hire more branch leaders like ours that empower us to be the best for our clients.

      There is nothing to report here

      Cons

      Shirley Winchester needs to go to jail

      Advice to Management

      Did not show to closing, no contact up to closing. No contact after the sale. No assistance for buying options, only interested in herself and commission, absolutely no client representation. More concerned about being on vacation and conveying mis information and trying to derail a sale. Very very dissappointed in this person, personally she needs to loose her liscence and go to jail for what she put us through, Verry...

      I worked at Allen Tate full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Training is good. If you're a newly licensed agent, it's a good place to start your career. You will learn a lot.

      Cons

      While training is good, commission split is the worst in the industry in this area. You will pay a lot to Allen Tate for very little in return. This firm offers little value for the amount that you will pay them. There is no flexibility for an agent to run his or her own business as he or she sees fit.

      Advice to Management

      Eliminate your corporate overhead that agents pay so much for but receive no benefit from.

      The people are great. They understand the importance of family and education.

      Cons

      Distance from home is 1 hr both ways and the pay.

      Advice to Management

      Pay your valuable employees enough to keep them.
