    I have been working at Baird & Warner full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. A "People-first", "Do the right thing" Culture 2. Strong culture of Empowerment 3. ONE-Company collaborative vision and engagement across ALL three owned companies: B&W Residential Sales, Baird & Warner Title Services and Key Mortgage Services....Business lines are NOT Silo'd AT ALL!! 4. Humble and Approachable Executive Management Team 5. A company filled with Servant Leaders 6. Very thoughtful decisioning is tightly aligned to vision and goals...never a disconnect. 7. The Leadership team is an incredibly tight family of committed professionals 8. Committed to the agent - their training, one-on-one coaching/mentoring and extremely high levels of management availability. 9. Being an independently held private company, we're not tied to quarterly shareholder expectations....can have a longer term vision which allows us to make better decisions in the short term as well. 10. 165-yr history of unprecedented adaptability resulting in the ability to pivot quickly when 11. Investment in technology that no national firm can match. 12. Our mantra "It's Easier Here" is supported by our commitment (internally to our broker associates) in the right technology solutions, continual training/coaching and and externally via client service delivery) via our ONE-Stop-Shop experience offering Residential Sales, Title and Mortgage. We live and execute intentionally on that mantra. Our goal is what we call an EPIC Experience (internally and externally) 13. We LOVE and Respect our People! 14. We honor commitment to hard word with advancement opportunities from within. 15. Each and every member of our executive team is a Top Notch industry Leader and a Humble Servant Leader....what a powerful combination! 16. Rallied and pivoted quickly through the pandemic to provide our broker associates the tools, training and new skills they needed to innovate, differentiate and come out strong as we transition out. Business never stopped for B&W. We pivoted on a dime. I knew we were good, but the way we came together so quickly and collaborative to keep our business and broker associates moving forward was awe-inspiring, truly.

    Cons

    Honestly, we need to do a better job getting the secret out about just how genuinely incredible this place is to be a part of. We truly are the Whole Packageg....once agents join B&W they don't often leave.
