Pros

team environment, sense of belonging, managers who are easy to reach in the hour of need
opportunity to grow income based on performance...commission scale that grows with equity earned in prior years with no desk fees, almost all expenses paid
maximum support to new and seasoned agents from on-the-job training to personal marketing to listing marketing, lead generation and unsuprassed technology in the industry

Cons

as in all sales jobs, 20% of the sales associates are doing 80% of the work...wish we had more like the top tier in the ranks
industry views it as a place for rookies to train and then jump ship which couldn't be more wrong. it's a place to start out and GROW for the long haul.

Advice to Management

talk more about the support offered to sales associates...they get lazy, they don't take advantage of it, they forget they have it, they look for greener pastures where the "split" looks better, and defections weaken the ranks.

    Pros

    Wonderful company for rookies
    No monthly fees
    Advertising subsidy
    Fabulous work environment
    LOVED my broker
    Company is not a franchise, all branches are under the same broker
    Extra commission for "in house" sales

    Cons

    Commission split isn't great, don't ever actually move above 50/50
    The way commission is explained to new hires is somewhat deceptive. I don't think it is intentionally deceptive, but it is very misleading.

    Advice to Management

    Offer higher commission split. 50/50 just isn't enough

    I hear what you're saying. Sometimes perception and reality can differ. The reality is our commission plan has splits going from 50/50% all the way up to 87/13%. Our blended rate is 65/35 across the ... More

    Pros

    Great company to work for. I would recommend this company to anyone seeking a career in real estate. They have excellent training, support, encourage teamwork, everyone is willing to help each other, and they promote from within.

    Cons

    As Realtor/Sales you will most likely work weekends and holidays. That is a given in any customer service field.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, doing a great job, no advice to offer.
