    I have been working at Coldwell Banker part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many great reasons to work here, but a big one is that the administrative staff is very helpful and the manager is great!

    Cons

    I don't see many cons for working at Coldwell banker residential brokerage. The only con of being a realtor are the fees to keep up your license, which isn't the companies fault.

    Pros

    strong company with national reputation and name recognition. This name recognition can lead to referrals from out of state people

    Cons

    A very large company and you realize you are only valued depending on what you sold the year before so it's not encouraging.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to support the agents who are mid level earners.
