    Pros

    Excellent Teamwork which is not typical of Realtors

    Cons

    So far I do not see anything, new agents quickly learn they need to spend the time training to get things moving

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    great atmosphere, really teaches the in and outs of sales in New York. Its also very great to work in a team when your dealing with high - end NYC Residential

    Cons

    Its Real Estate - so par for the course. Your basic cold calling and trying to get that multi million dollar listing and having it sold and moving on to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - Keller Williams is doing something right, the way they are growing so rapidly - when I started real estate in the city at Douglas Elliman 3plus years ago they were ranked 8 - now they are up to 5 and keep moving up, as a lot of other high end agents keep moving there

    Building your business takes time, patience, and lots of work! As with any real estate sales position.

    Pros

    Engaged office. Many opportunities to learn about real estate and make bonuses from your real estate agent. Lots of down time to handle personal business, take long lunch breaks, very limited weekend work, etc

    Cons

    Becomes repetitive after a while. Can get boring if you are a person who is used to excitement and constant moving. Feels like you become more of a personal assistant as opposed to an executive assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Make it mandatory for real estate agents to provide commissions to their EAs
