    Pros

    Informative, friendly office. Comfortable place and the instructor had funny dry humor. She was fair and tactful. I felt fully prepared to take the exam and passed the first try.

    Cons

    None. I got what I paid for. 40 hours in one week of real estate pre-incensing hours.

    Pros

    Real Estate one truly takes care of its agents. Trying to provide with all support including marketing assistance and various trainings.

    Cons

    However, it is not a cheap place to be for agents. Neither it pays well to most of it administrative stuff.

    I have been working at Real Estate One full-time

    Pros

    Outstanding training. Great support staff. This company can take someone who is self motivated and open to training and turn them into a knowledgeable sales professional. Many other real estate brokers show you where you sit and wish you well. Real Estate One offers a combination of goal oriented training, agent support and still affords the agents the ability to work at a self employed level.

    Cons

    Real estate agents are self employed and 1099'd. If you are looking for a compensation plan that includes company paid health insurance, vacation or sick days this is not the industry for you. This is not directed at Real Estate One this is industry wide. If you work hard you will earn more than enough to compensate and plan for your own needs... if you don't maybe a nice 9-5.

    Pros

    Pros-long lunch break as a staff member, health benefits, company outings and management acts more like a friend then a boss.

    Cons

    Corporate office Real Estate One has blocked all women's health sites. From Planner Parenthood to clinics, access to women's healthcare is denied by management. Extremely anti-women company.
    Management in Birmingham office is extremely poor and managed on social status rather then work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Be a manager; not a friend. Don't hire in young kids that want a job, look for young professionals that want a career.

    Pros

    A large support staff that allows your business to grow at no extra cost

    Cons

    A very large corporation that has to find a way to please everyone

    Advice to Management

    NO advice as I believe they are doing everything right

    I have been working at Real Estate One full-time

    Pros

    There are paid days off and the company is once again contributing to the 401k's of the employees. The staff does receive a bonus at the end of the year.

    Cons

    The managers do not listen to what the employees tell them. There is a huge disconnect between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    The wages being paid need to be higher or some kind of bonus employees can receive needs to be implemented. There are all sorts of contests aimed at the agents but not for the employees.

    I worked at Real Estate One full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, family operated company. Lots of fun company events (potluck, chili cook off, holiday parties, etc) to keep moral up.

    Cons

    Very low pay. HR does not enforce policies equally across departments whatsoever. Most employees do not hold college degrees because the ones that do eventually leave because they realize that even though it's a good work environment, it's hard to get by with that low of a paycheck. Our company boasted it's "Best Year" ever, yet I heard of many pay cuts right after. Some up to 25%.

    Pros

    The work environment is flexible.

    Cons

    Low pay, incompetence from managers and supervisors, dead-end job with no room to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. Invest in your employees, give raises, update office equipment, review your employees (not everyone is working like you think), take ownership for lack of leadership, have training courses for employees (stop hiring people that have no clue how to do their job), invest in marketing & advertising (get with the times), overall -- step it up!
