    Pros

    Coaching program for new agents, ability to earn 100% commission, low office dues, profit share.

    Cons

    Too many agents for one broker to oversee, questions often go unanswered by office manager, broker, and front desk. Can be "Cult like" with all the self affirmations. Zero leads unless your a "mega agent," Expensive office fees.

    Advice to Management

    Have another broker on staff to review files, answer e-mails, and just be there in general.

    Pros

    Profit share
    Great support for beginners
    tutoring
    desks
    classes galore

    Cons

    monthly fee's
    charged for everything
    lots of requests to donate to causes
    they push paid classes on you left and right
    70/30 split PLUS 6% royalty. really comes out to 64/36
    Zero Leads

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so aggressive trying to get people to sign up for BOLD, or other paid courses. They make it seem as though you won't succeed without these tools.

    For agents new to the profession there is a great training program, some free, some you have to pay for. Support from established agents is excellent. Everyone wants you to succeed. You will be an independent contractor.

    You may get a better deal by working with other brokers.

    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

    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
