Realtor (Former Employee) – Hastings, MN – February 14, 2017
the manager at these offices is stretched out way to thin. he does not have time for new employees. he is also not a very available person. specifically the hastings office is full of very rude people, a very cliquey place.
Great Place to work especially for those highly motivated in sales.
Realtor (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, Grand Ave office – October 11, 2012
I learned new systems and thrived in learning legal documentation for the listing and sale of homes. I continuously followed up on conversations and generated my own leads by introducing myself to new people every chance I got. Sat in homes in great ares of Saint Paul, MN and helped market and find buyers. The Management and culture are amazing and it is very hard to break into the real estate world as such a young person. The best part is there are not set hours or pay, but that's also the worst part. It is purely commission based and I need a little more structure and salary.
Regional Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Hayward, WI – September 1, 2015
This is a well organized and very knowledgeable corporate business that is based out-of-state. The management was always available when needed. The company took very good care of the employee's and agents. Agents were acknowledged for high sales and hard work.
I have worked for this company in two very distinctly different areas.
Realtor (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – March 2, 2016
I would attend weekly sales meetings, attend open houses and actively participate in the bi-annual Parade of Homes.
Try to obtain sales leads via various marketing tools and working in conjunction with the Office Sales Managers. There was various other tools at my disposal through Edina's Software Program, Prokit to obtain factual data about the past, present and future of the Real Estate environment.
I truly enjoyed and respected my managers as well as my co-workers.
I think the hardest thing was that you never truly have a day off, but on the same hand, it was great to be your own boss. You work hard, but smart.
I am most productive in a work environment that is active and co-workers are motivated and challenged to do a great job. I work best where there is a challenge in the job and I am allowed to do my best. I do not need supervision or lots of direction. I enjoy learning and completing tasks and keep the process moving forward.
Broker (Former Employee) – Minneapolis MN – July 2, 2015
Each office had a broker, office administrator and knowledgeable front desk folks. Education was a top priority for Edina Realty along with technology. We had quick answers to questions and upper management had an open-door policy.
Free food, great morale, competition games, social/team building activities.
I've done almost everything most days. From inputting listing, filing, and assisting with marketing. Agents are mostly wonderful to work with and show appreciation to the staff. Hardest part is when the market is slower and trying to find busy work when you've already done everything.
Flexability of management staff when help needed
No real walk away breaks, but when it's slow that's fine
Realtor (Current Employee) – Northfield, MN – March 28, 2015
As a realtor you are your own boss but if you need any help or advice your manager will always be there for you! At Edina Realty you get the best possible training and continue to learn throughout your career.
Great point of origination real estate sales company
Real Estate Sales, Northwest (Current Employee) – Spooner, WI – September 3, 2012
List and sell real estate in Northwest Wisconsin. All agents take floor time to cover walk ins and calls during the week. We have bi-F weekly office meetings with our Broker. The hardest part of this job is the unknown factor of income. The most injoyable part is at closing when the buyer has a huge smile on their face when they finally get to move into their new home.
