    I have been working at Windermere Real Estate full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    All Windermere real estate brokers are required to be members of the National Association of Realtors, a professional organization that requires all members to adhere to a strict code of ethics. Though it is expensive to join and requires continuing education and ethics training, I appreciate knowing that other Windermere brokers I deal with area also professional Realtors.

    Cons

    Individual office costs do add up. Consider cost-cutting innovations to lower these costs :)

    Advice to Management

    Up your game online and consider keeping all listings online, even if sold, to create a master data base of real estate in each city you have an office.

    I worked at Windermere Real Estate full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation which helps to open doors. Highly ethical and professional. Opportunities for learning across the company. Cares about the community and you're encouraged to give back.

    Cons

    As a PM you are an independent contractor but the brokerage can treat you like an employee - without the benefits that come along with typically being an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop better systems to help new Property Manager learn what it takes to be effective at their job. Learning by watching other PMs isn't effective.

    Pros

    Very friendly, open and encouraging environment. Allows for plenty of advancement and training opportunities. Agents and assistants get along well and are more than happy to help each other.

    Cons

    Like any office, there's competition, but it wasn't an unusual amount. There was some odd hires at the leadership level which have been taken care of, and the new leadership is fantastic.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, really. As I said, everyone was super encouraging and helped each other out. You felt like you were part of a team, and it was a decent place to work. My direct bosses were awesome.
