Not much support from management
Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 16, 2016
Citi does not provide as much support as they say that they do. They are just as "sleezy" as all the other brokers out there the only difference is they have a big corporation backing them.

Like all Real Estate companies, your experience will depend on what office you're in. When working with Rental clients, they will appreciate the Citi Habitats brand. There's a great listing system, with many Open Listings. Great, diverse group of colleagues.

Not enjoyable for me
LICENSED REAL ESTATE AGENT (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 9, 2014
The typical day is chasing "clients" around the city and trying to determine if they are actually interested in renting the apartment in question. We have to compile all financial records, credit reports and submit them to building owners and landlords.
Pros
none
Cons
to cutthroat of an environment for me.

Busy Manhattan Corporate Real Estate Firm
Real Estate Salesperson (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 29, 2014
Work day is dependent upon the individual, as this is a commission based job with a seasonal aspect. Learned a lot about individual motivations, internet advertising strategies, residential leasing and sales, and inter-office politics and hierarchy. Management left a lot to be desired from an intelligence and assistance standpoint, though the new manager at the location I was at has changed. Hardest part of the job was self-motivation. Most enjoyable part of the job was the flexible schedule.
Pros
No desk fees, flexible hours
Cons
Commission based only, low split
