Great company with great management.
Realtor (Former Employee), Colleyville, TXJuly 26, 2014
Pros: chance for income increase.
Cons: long hours that included nights, week-ends and holidays.
Coldwell Banker was one of the best companies I had the opportunity to work with in real estate. There is always room for advancement. I was just getting my clientele built up when we moved to the Houston area. I was self employed so there were no benefits but I knew that the next year my sales would have increased and would compensate for the lack – more... of benefits.

The job required working nights, weekends and holidays and usually seven days a week. It was a life style not a job. The first two years in a real estate company are the hardest because that is when you are building your clientele which requires extensive marketing and networking, After that, the referrals start coming in and it pays off.

I developed sales skills, negotiating skills, marketing skills and computer skills. My favorite part of real estate sales was getting to work with people from all over the United States. I enjoy being around people. – less

Shattered dreams
Real Estate Referral Agent (Current Employee), Ridgefield, CTJuly 22, 2014
Pros: i am my own boss
Cons: dealing with people.i miss the interaction of day to day contact.
As a referral agent I am self-employed and affiliated with a real estate brokerage company. Therefore, I only get compensated for the business I bring in. .Due to the regulatory nature of this market and the highly competitive issue of too many agents chasing too few deals, I have found it necessary to seek employment outside of real estate sales..

REALTOR (Former Employee), Temecula, CAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, good money, met wonderful people
Cons: long hours, paid by commissions only, hard to balance famijly life
I loved my career as a Realtor working with both Buyers & Sellers. I loved the community/city I lived in & worked with so I was very enthusiastic and it was easy to sell homes.
The long hours were difficult with a family.
Could make a lot of money some years and some years not so good due to the market.

Great training bad commission split
Real Estate Agent (Former Employee), Myrtle Beach, SCJuly 14, 2014
Pros: good training, no boss breathing down neck
Cons: bad commission splits and they use you for advertising
Typical day involved cold calling, door knocking, office hours, and trying to persuade sellers to list their homes with me as well as preparing CMA's. Toughest part is you have to pay for most of the advertising, but must include Coldwell Banker's logo. When a house is sold I got to keep half of my 3% commission. At the time (bubble bust) Coldwell wanted – more... me to keep spending my money on advertising when people were not buying and then wanting half of my commission. No thanks. I leaned how to cold call and be more efficient. Started preapproving buyers and refused to show them any homes until they were pre approved as not to waste my time showing homes they could not afford on my dime. – less

everyday was different and exciting
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Upper Montclair, NJJuly 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches at broker open houses
Cons: spending lots of money on gas traveling around to show homes
A typical day was going to the office to print out the new homes listed and going to see them. Then back to the office to work floor time for a couple of hours. Making appointments to see houses for clients. Then meeting clients to show the homes they are interested in. Learning many things everyday, getting to know what clients need and want in there – more... search for a new home. Learning all about relationships. My co-workers were always so helpful and would go out of their way to help on many levels.
The hardest part is letting go of the outcome of what might happen with a sale. Trusting the process will work out in the perfect time.
The most enjoyable is finding the exact home for buyers and seeing how happy they are. Also working with sellers who list and getting them more money for their home then what it listed at. – less

Fast Paced and Fun
Office Administrator and primary interface (Former Employee), Cupertino, CAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: working with great people
Cons: lots of politics
A typical day at work would be sitting at the front desk, answering phones, putting together disclosure packets for agents, assisting agents with faxing closing paperwork with a deadline.

I learned a lot about homes, what sells and what doesn't with the way it is as is. Helped open my mind, to what could be done. I learned Outlook.

Management was – more... great to work with.

Real Estate Agents were all fun to work with.

Nothing hard about this job.

Most enjoyable part of the job is when Agent's would make a sale, what an accomplishment. I made gift baskets with a budget for some of the new buyers as a house warming gift, love being creative. Loved the Holiday parties. – less

Great National Reputation
Realtor (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXJune 29, 2014
I began my real estate career with Coldwell Banker because they have a great reputation nationally and they have a wonderful education program for new agents. The staff and manager at my office were wonderful.

As a self-employed agent, I learned that I needed to be organized and disciplined in my approach to finding clients and promoting myself.

The – more... hardest part of the job was realizing that my closest friends and relatives were probably not going to use me as their real estate agent....either they already had an agent they had used in the past or they felt that it would be awkward to work together.

The most enjoyable part of my job was helping my clients achieve their goal or buying or selling a home. – less
