Great environment, people are very friendly and inviting. You control your own destiny, every penny you make is in your hands. Learned how to be bold. Hardest part of the job is taking a potential client and have a successful closing since there is so many things that can go wrong.
Associate (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – September 9, 2017
Working in real estate is a lot harder than people think. Keeping in mind that your income is totally based on your ability to perform and close deals. It is completely commission based which can be either a pro or con depending on your work ethic.
Office Manager - Accounting - MCA (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – September 9, 2017
This position assumes you have no life beyond work. If you don't mind be worked like a dog then this is the job for you. Abusive relationship where you are worked to death but put on a pedestal at company functions. Odd.
KW home office in Austin is always haphazardly adding products or services that they want you to talk the agents into doing. Of course these always cost the agents some money they don't have.
Accounting system is so confusing and very outdated. There are 2 main programs used but they are unable to be linked. So many spreadsheets are kept for everything unable to be added to either one of the programs. KW says they are up on technology.....not for the actual office workers.
Just be forewarned that turnover for this MCA position is very common nationwide in all offices. That speaks for itself. Another thing....you will actually be doing the work of two people but only be paid for one and that pay is not impressive at all.
MARKET CENTER ADMINISTRATOR (MCA) (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 7, 2017
KW Philly was a great place to work with multiple opportunities for career advancement. The senior management team and support staff all worked together to create a diverse, inclusive and extremely supportive environment.
KW work really hard at the overall corporate level to make sure you have all of the tools you need. Each office is probably very different so you really have to explore and interview each of the office members/full time salaried people as well as the broker of record to make sure you connect. The experienced agents will do anything to help each other - and rarely even want any compensation. My mentor was incredible and I couldn't imagine having done the business without a mentor.
Real Estate Agent (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 5, 2017
This is a fun place to work and learn the real estate business. The people in the office were happy to help if you had a question. There was a lot of opportunity to take classes and learn more of the business side of selling real estate, which was helpful, too.
