Broker (Current Employee) – Athens TN – June 7, 2016
I have been with Crye-Leike since 2011. The training, agent resources, marketing and agent support are UNSURPASSED!! This is an excellent company to start your real estate career! Tons of training opportunities, webinars, classes, articles, videos. The customized Agent Profile allows you to access your strengths and weaknesses to optimize your performance as an agent for a successful career in Real Estate. The company also offers a Career Development Department that helps direct you to the best efforts to get your career up and running and promotes continued success. I have been affiliated with two other local companies before tranferring my license to Crye-Leike. Their marketing is second to none and maximum exposure of listings means successful sales and closings. I love my job and my company. Our CEO Harold Crye is personally envolved with our company and has an OPEN DOOR policy. I am proud to be affiliated with such a wonderful company and would recommend it to any and all agents!!!

Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – June 6, 2016
This is a great place to work with real life training that is applicable to real life situations. Crye-Leike offers continuing education that high quality and classes are easy to attend with a flexible schedule.
I worked there for two years and it was by far the most archaic I have ever worked. The phones would randomly roll over to anyone if the receptionist was on the phone, the CFO tried to save a few bucks and wouldn't utilize online banking fully. The accounting department might have functioned better if the CFO had not micr managed. He added so many unnecessary steps to the AP process, had us file so much unecessary paperwork the file cabinets were almost about to overflow. Direct deposit is only offered with one bank and you don't get a bonus. I was one of the many casualties in 2008 but I had seniority over 5 in my department. I was selected because I was the only guy in the department.
Real Estate Sales (Former Employee) – Franklin, TN – September 18, 2015
A typical day consisted of assisting buyers and sellers in residential sales, marketing, shipping, cold calling, and making the sales. I learned how to set up a home for showing, doing open houses, how to compare sold properties to show the best prices for sales. I am a real estate affiliate agent. The co-agents were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part was getting the sellers and buyers to agree on a price. The most enjoyable part was getting the buyers in a home and selling the sellers home.
Assisted clients in the purchasing and selling of their homes. Although we were working for ourselves, Crye-Leike provided excellent training for their agents and gave them every opportunity to be successful.
Everything is focused on the agents cause they're the ones bringing the money in. Office and support staff are not deemed important, even though they try to say you are. The job itself is not bad and can be varied and interesting.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 20, 2014
I was in charge of all the employee files. I answered in coming calls, set up interviews, and did new hire orientation. I also prepared correspondence for the manager of the company. I filled in at the branch offices when the manager was out, during this I was in charge of putting the realtors listing on the MLS. I sent out monthly emails of recruits made by Crye-Leike realtors and employees.
