Real Estate Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 27 July 2018
Well run office with ethical standards. Good branding and solid support system and staff. Knowledgeable mangers who are willing to support agents. Fees are higher than some offices, but justified in my opinion to have impartial managers that aren't in competition with agents.
agent support coordinator (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 29 July 2018
People are not properly trained, employees are under-paid, and there is no room for advancement within the company. The agents are held on a high horse while their jobs would not be possible without the support coordinators.
Part Time Receptionist (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 16 July 2018
Very flexible with hours and will work around your schedule. I worked here during my college studies and it was a perfect fit for my school schedule. This position taught me a lot about the real estate industry and it provided me with good skills to carry into other industries. You will definitely learn how to multi-task. This company provide good training and great communication with helpful, well trained coworkers.
Free coffee&tea, treats, great co workers, good training
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.
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.
Scanner (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 5 June 2018
The employees are all very friendly and the atmosphere is very inviting. The job is not stressful and the office is close to a public transit exchange so it is very accessible for those without a vehicle.
Real Estate Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 May 2018
Most real estate agents begin their day by looking at the previous day's market activity. It is usually on a downloaded or online "hot sheet" report. It tells them what sold, new listings, price changes and other activity in their market.
Your time is well-spent in doing this every day, as you may find the perfect new listing for a buyer you've been working with. Or, you may see a property that buyer had an interest in with a price reduction.
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
Realtor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 March 2018
All good. It is a job that you get out what you put in. Excellent management and support team. Offices are clean large bright and open.Great location on Henderson Hwy.The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and helping new people. Being a part of their lives for a long time.I have learned to listen before you speak. Listen to what people want then act accordingly. The hardest part of the job is being taken away from something your doing to represent your client. I.E.. Being at the lake and have to leave to close a deal on a long weekend.I have learned there are many correct ways to do the same thing.
Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 March 2018
