Real Estate Administrator (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 2 November 2018
The team leader does whatever he needs to make a sale, even if that means preventing you from developing your career. He uses himself as an example when trying to inspire others. He does not care about you unless you are actively putting him on a pedestal and do not expect any praise. If you are someone who needs positive reinforcement, this job is not for you.
Front Desk Administrator/Receptionsit/Secretary (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 June 2018
I worked briefly as a Front Desk Admin Assistant and it was A LOT of work for such little pay. Royal LePage is a company where you set your own salary -- and as good as that sounds, its really not true, as they decide your pay for you at the end of the day. Other Front Desk Admin Assistants were getting paid ~$18/hr. This made me feel severely underpaid, especially as I was going above and beyond and outperforming the others. There are NO benefits. And yes, you're expected to work on Federal Holidays like Canada Day. Not all RLP firms have the same schedule, so be weary of which one you get hired at -- whether it is Signature Club, Terrequity, etc.
The staff were nice, and generally a bit older. Which makes it a little harder to relate to them, but no complaints on the friendly and relaxed environment.
People were nice.
No parking, no benefits, low pay, lack of recognition, they can move you around to different branches -- even if its far.
Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 11 January 2019
Typical day at work would be looking over paper work, putting deals through to Edmonton Real Estate Board, Answering incoming calls and forwarding to appropriate agents. Make monthly calls schedules. Prepare for month end. Organize and pay monthly bills then send to head office. Assist and answer to office manager (Brokerage Manger). Assist head agent. The most enjoyable part of my job was to see my coworkers succeed. The hardest part of my job was our busy season and there only being one of me, most of our busy season I would come early, stay late and work through lunch.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 8 July 2018
Set up and clean up are both reasonable work. I've learned so much about Real Estate and the behind the scenes of listing or buying a property. The management here is nice and supportive, they encourage you to push harder, learn more and they're always looking for ways to help you (i.e. giving you extra hours wherever they can. keeping an eye out for advancement opportunities). The agents in the office are like a huge family, and seeing as our office does so many charity events it's often very energetic and goofy around the office. Training isn't the greatest, but the staff are super helpful and friendly you'll have no problem getting the hang of things. Overall, amazing work place.

While I worked at Royal Lepage Sussex, I was the part time receptionist. I floated between three locations before becoming the set Saturday receptionist at Royal Lepage. I was taught how to process contracts for realtors, transferring calls, filing, maintaining the office : stocking paper, refilling the coffee, putting mail in mail slots. I also was responsible for keys to listings, and making sure they were recorded to who had them.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 30 January 2019
I worked as a Realtor, my hours were flexible, I worked open houses on weekends to find clients. I am still currently a Realtor but looking for something with a steady paycheck, I was responsible for meeting clients, determining clients needs, showing homes, negotiating offers and writing offers. I had to make sure closings went smoothly. I currently do my own bookkeeping,

A fantastic and cutting edge real estate brokerage. New technology and helping people reach personal milestones becomes very rewarding. You have the ability to work on many different tasks and learn many new technologies.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 22 April 2018
Royal LePage Nanaimo Realty bought out Coast Realty in 2015. Coast Realty was a local firm that did quite well but the time had come for the owners to sell. Royal LePage is a national real estate company that may be one of the most diverse and pro-active companies across Canada. The management model is second to none; their training of employees and agents is super and they are well respected. It was an absolute pleasure to part of their team.
I was a self starter so selling homes became easy for me. My model was to devote my attention to my job by doing open houses, following up with clients and putting in lots of hours at my job. I feel I was one of the hardest working agents and it paid off with sales as well as very satisfied clients. I purposely gave up my other career which was in the golf business. I love golf but to have be good at what you do and to find success in the real estate business, you must focus your energy and not get distracted with another career. Having a golf background helped however as I was involved in the sale of a golf course in BC and sold a few homes on or near golf courses.
Helping clients with the biggest purchase or sale of their lives
