    Pros

    Training is a hallmark of the company.

    Cons

    Difficult real estate market makes obtaining clients a time consuming and cost consuming business. Being a Realtor is not free - so if you don't sell something you don't get paid and you have monthly fees from your brokerage to pay. Your circle of friends, etc. is where you find your buyers and sellers. If your sphere of influence is made up of folks who are not qualified to buy a house or don't want or need to sell their house, you will find it difficult to build your business without spending a lot of money to attract buyers/sellers to you.

    I worked at BHGRE Metro Brokers as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some Free Training
    Great Broker Support
    Polite and Courteous Call Center Answering with transfers to your cell phone
    "Free Marketing Kit to Start"
    Various Office Locations with Secure 24/7 entry
    Various groups to join, if you're accepted.

    Cons

    There are fees on top of fees. Royalty Fees before you get your commission.

    30 days advance notice to transfer. You may transfer sooner however you will still be billed for the 30 days and if not paid it will be placed on your credit report.

    Calls for your listings are given to other agents if you don't answer your calls from the call center, if you miss a call from the call center you won't know who calls if they don't leave a message

    If you leave before a year you will be billed for the free marketing materials provided. Read all of the small print in the contracts you are signing upon connecting.

    After being their several months I finally met the owner at a office meeting. He seemed uninterested to know who I was. I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He was the same on other encounters.

    Ensure what you're told upon interview is in writing. Once you've signed you're stuck to whatever is in their contract.

    The groups you join to get referrals have additional fees you pay for getting that referral. In todays economy and with properties selling as low as they are your commission can amount to working for FREE.

    The owner has financial interst (gain) in many of the subscriptions he gives. Also tried to destroy another company who was taking less from their agents.

    Advice to Management

    Show care for your agents by lowering your splts. Also be more personable. Have a welcome meeting for joining agents monthly or quarterly and get to know the agents.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at BHGRE is the fact that they have a really big market share in Atlanta. In addition to this, they have over 20 offices that are all over metro Atlanta that any Realtor with the company can access.

    Cons

    You have to pay $80 per month and $400 a year in professional dues.

    Advice to Management

    Being that the economy is so bad, I think the leadership should try to get some of the professional fees lowered.
