    I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere full of positive people working together to improve the success of everyone. Amazing tools and resources along with top notch support staff and training/coaching team. Office has great market presence and lots of in house leads. Brokers are non-competing which means you do not have to compete with management or leaders. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Hard to make a left turn across traffic leaving the office.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time explaining and training on all the benefits, tools and resources provide in the REsource center. Every time we do, I learn more ways to save money with the tools provided to us that I have been spending with 3rd party vendors.

    Pros

    Great on boarding and on going training programs

    Cons

    They do not give you leads. It can be very hard to get started in real estate on your own and you must have your own client base.
