      Pretty Run of the Mill Brokerage

      May 4, 2021 - Real Estate Agent in Sarasota, FL

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Competitive commission structure that increases with sales output. Out of the larger, more established brokerages, it's probably the best one. Office fees are reasonable. There's a lot of on-site coaching and mentorship available albeit, not always of the highest quality. Pretty well-known name with clients. There's an alternate way to generate income through recruiting other agents to the company (think similar to MLM).

      Cons

      KWs are franchised for the most part so your mileage may very depending on your broker. Some brokers won't go to bat for you if you're in a very complex transaction so not always support there. If you choose to participate in the on-site coaching, it comes at the price of a piece of your commissions for a year (mine was 5%). I find that the brokerages who offer the highest commission splits to be the best as most clients will hire you because they like you, not necessarily who your brokerage is.

      Unrealistic workload

      Pros

      Good exposure to brokerage operations Good practical experience for bookkeeping

      Cons

      MCA's are expected to be a full charge bookkeeper, staff trainer, contract compliance manager, retention manager, office manager, assistant recruiter, and trainer. The job targets people with minor accounting training and then works them to death. Brokerage staff turnover is typically high so developing a team to carry some of the load is almost impossible.

      Bait and switch

      Pros

      Office energy is unmatched compared to most brokerages. They make legitimate attempts foster a sense of community within office of independent contractors.

      Cons

      The cost of this "office culture" is through your commission. They attract you by saying you can "cap" but to cap you need to give at LEAST 35% for every transaction. (30% with office and >5% for KW as a whole) I capped every year I was at KW, and looking back I feel that I was throwing away at least $30,000 a year; their technology sucked, their office staff were clearly not the best, and I feel I could get more value elsewhere.

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Really great at building your database and list of business as a new agent and getting started in the industry. Also really great at answering questions and providing support through culture and leadership.

      Cons

      Maybe too focused around prospecting just your COI and not focusing on getting new business like Expireds and FSBOs to add to your future database of clients.
