Great income potential with flexibility in working hours
REALTOR (Current Employee), Troy, MIDecember 4, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: can work alot of hours including nights and weekends
As a Realtor I am an independent contractor. I work for myself. My typical day consists of developing and following up on real estate leads, searching for homes for buyers, negotiating sales for my clients, writing purchase agreements, addendums and other documentation and marketing my business.
Being in RealEstate has taught me negotiating skills, – more... patience, customer service, conflict management and to pay close attention to details.
I have very supportive co-workers at RealEstate One. I have encountered other Realtors at other agencies to be difficult to work with but that has taught me how to resolve conflicts in a productive manner.
The hardest part of the job is investing in clients that may not end up purchasing a home or having sellers that will not do their part to ensure their home is sellable to todays consumer.
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping my clients achieve the American Dream of owning a home and helping them achieve their personal and financial goals when selling or buying real estate. – less

Close-knit workplace with a lot of opportunities with interacting with new people.
Secretary/IT (Former Employee), Alpena, MichiganMarch 18, 2014
I began working at the Alpena branch as soon as it opened. I was responsible for helping the new real estate agents move in and was responsible for updating all their listings to several online data bases as well as helping run fundraiser events.Most days involved a lot of database entry with the occasional errand to run such as obtaining keys from – more... other offices and getting pictures of new listings.

Management was very flexible and worked around my school schedule as well as let me come and go as work was completed. The co-workers were great to deal with. Almost everyone there was much older and more experienced than me but treated me with respect.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with how mundane data entry would get after a few hours. I was able to get around this sometimes by volunteering to run errands for the agents. The best part of the job was all the social interactions that came with it and the feeling of the business as a family. We would host many potluck style events at the office where friends and family would all come together to enjoy a parade or another event. – less

Professional, Supportive and fun place to work.
Realtor (Current Employee), Holt, MIJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: opportunity/privilege to work with clients from all walks of life, independent contractor, team member at your franchise office, numerous career paths within the field of real estate, unlimited income potential
Cons: you are solely responsible for your income.
I find real estate a challenge with immeasurable rewards. Each day is different and I enjoy having to think on my feet and navigate through the obstacles that come with each new transaction.

The management at Real Estate One 1st, has always been there for training, support and advice. I feel extremely lucky to be surrounded by so many experienced Brokers – more... and fellow sales people.

It's hard to watch a transaction that falls apart for one reason or another but, sometimes it can't be helped. However, the reward of being able to witness the look on someone's face when they step into a house at their first showing and realize at that moment, this isn't just a house, but it's their new home. That is priceless.

I am forever indebted to the staff for their training, patience and support over the years. It has allowed me to become confident in my abilities and hopefully an asset to my Broker and most importantly to my clients.

Real Estate One 1st, LLC is a great place to work. – less

An incredible company to work for
REALTORĀ® (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIDecember 15, 2012
Pros: great company culture
Cons: no insurance benefits (health, dental, etc.)
A typical day at work is whatever you make it, since real estate salespeople are independent contractors. However, whenever you need help it is there. The training is the best I have ever received, and the company culture is that of friendliness and helpfulness.

The hardest part of the job is finding business, but at the same time it can be the most – more... enjoyable part - if you enjoy challenges, that is. – less

Very hard work for minimal pay.
Real estate agent (Former Employee), Sterling Heights, MIDecember 10, 2012
Pros: meeting new people.

Power of persuasion and convincing people to buy/sell properties is the name of the game. Co-workers and other agents are very cut throat.

Real Estate One is an A-1 company to work for.
Associate Broker (Current Employee), Southgate, MIOctober 8, 2012
Pros: no time clock
Cons: commission only income
The training and education benefits of working at Real Estate One cannot be surpassed by any company. The hardest part of the rea estate business is the bank owned properties and their lack of communication and response times. The best is the smiles on the faces of someone closing on their first home.
