Very fulfilling job, make great money if you do well, have a career one enjoys, amazing support and resources from the overall company and team. Great working atmosphere among fellow colleagues.
Too many meetings, micromanaging applies from team to team but exists.1

In previous years, prior to 2023, the pay can exceed an average traditional agent's pay. Now in 2023 it will likely take a decade before that pay is realized again - if ever - due to the economy, industry and changing company Agent goals. Benefits are above average (medical/dental/vision/401K).
Pay comes at an *extreme* personal cost. Be prepared to lose all work/life balance as "good pay" at Redfin means quadrupling an average Agent's amount of sales. High volume = higher pay. Agents are on-call 7 days a week, every day of the year - inclusive of nights, weekends, holidays and vacations. There are no days off and Mgmt nor Corporate will address this. Top-level Mgmt requires you be available at all times since you are in "sales," meaning customers are welcomed to phone/text/email you at all hours. Your response times are critical to your company-induced metrics and public-facing customer service reviews, which is tied to your pay. Agents that succeed financially at Redfin are those willing to be available 12+ hours a day, at all times. They'll make the sacrifice for the potential pay, though Agent pay capability has now declined with recent changing company goals and the overall market. It's a very, very hard life to sustain. I did it for years with success; however, I lost out on an incredible amount of life. I cannot stress enough for someone to understand this prior to going into it; you will suffer mentally and physically at many points.3
Offered a job as a senior agent at Redfin, and have some concerns. How secure will my job be? Ive heard of Redfin firing agents and keeping their sales right after they've done all the work, or catty hiring/firing practices among sales teams, with lots of turnover of management. Also, whats with the out of state/out of market brokers-in-charge / management? For a company thats been around 15-20 years now, it seems like they are still trying to figure out how to run the company by trial/error?
When is Redfin going to acknowledge that they pay many of their agents less than minimum wage? $610-725 take home pay every 2 weeks, when you are working 7 days a week is not a living wage. Its especially not when you have upfront operating costs that they reimburse for weeks later. Redfin #broken#business#model #redfininthered #minimum #wage #runfromredfin
