Pros
Cons
  • Really the only downside that I have come across is that there is no lead generation, which makes it difficult to get going as a new agent (in 5 reviews)

  • No cons really, Everyone was super helpful, and understanding (in 3 reviews)

    I have been working at Windermere Real Estate full-time

    Pros

    Every Windermere office is different. At the office I am at in Puyallup, they provided training as a new agent. They also offered "floor time" on a volunteer basis. Floor time is basically a 3 hour shift where you are at the office for any calls that come in from a potential client that needs help buying or selling a house. If you end up turning that call or walk-in customer in a sell, you do not have to pay a referral fee to the office.

    Cons

    After your initial training, there is not additional training on how to manage your business, making it hard to expand your business.

    Pros

    Great people, support and environment. Strong name brand in Northwest.

    Cons

    Hi costs. 70/30 split up to cap plus transaction fees etc. I keep about 60% of commissions till I reach my cap, then about 90%. Pay additional for monthly office space.

    Few if any leads provided. You are pretty much on your own to find business.
