    Pros

    Stable company name with nice logo and company promotion. Training is good, although mixed with a lot of tiresome pep talks so not always time effective for more experienced agents.

    Cons

    Commission schedule is brutal. Eight percent off the top, then they calculate percentage based on year to date earnings. Starts at 70% (which is roughly 63% with the 8% off the top) and you have to get to over $120,000 every year in Earnings (not sales) in a year to even get to 90% (which is still only about 83% with the off-the-top 8% cut. Misc. other fees including annual (in advance) E&O around $450, and another quarterly $100 to what they call an Agent Fund for marketing promotions you do not control. They cover printing of mailers (Agent pays postage) but they are designed to promote Tarbell and some are primitive compared to competitors. It's a lot of hours and stress to get paid less than the agents on the other side of a deal. Not nearly as many agents are "earning a living" as you might expect. Ask to see this month's sales compared to a location roster if you have doubts (which is true at any Brokerage not just Tarbell).

    Pros

    Great company for newly licensed agents to learn how to become a real estate agent. Good training for new agents. Top agents are treated great. Cultures are respected

    Cons

    Once an agent becomes trained and established, if they aren't top producers, they are not a managers priority. Some managers focus on top producers or new agents and don't have much time to work with others. Many of the administrative staff have many great ideas to help managers, but are discouraged to go above and beyond and eventually Tarbell loses good employees because of this flaw. Once trained, established agents good agents move to a larger real estate company that offers more encouragement and less restrictiveness on their business. The president doesn't get all the information from the people who she supervises. a lot of these supervisors don't give any kudos to administrative staff for ideas to increase business, bring in more money etc. Administrative staff have very little encouragement to come up with ideas, and when they do, they aren't considered or even make it for any review. Producing agents are surrounded by low producing agents which is counter productive because managers have to spend a lot of time dealing with this issue and don't have the time to help middle agents succeed. There are to many company policies and micromanaging of agents and agents aren't allowed to make decisions or negotiate their own business transactions they way they want without getting permission from managers, which may be good for newer agents but agents who are established it holds them back from being more successful. Promotional opportunities, yearly performance reviews and raises aren't offered to administrative staff, therefor making good people leave and making a permanent position feel like a temporary one. Valued employees are not recognized except top producing agents.
