NIce organization to work for
Real Estate Agent (Former Employee), Brighton, MIApril 15, 2015
Pros: New and cutting edge programs for Realtor's.
Cons: High company expenses, and unrealistic customer expectations
Company has many opportunities available for new and existing Realtor's to help them become the best in their field. However, Realtor's will pay extensively for these services and should have some financial foundation to help support themselves until their client base takes off, which could take several years. Additionally, customers are unrealistic with their expectations, of both the purchasing and selling process and often expect Realtor to work for less money.

Office Manager (Former Employee), Houghton Lake, MIJanuary 1, 2015
Pros: agents are mostly very nice
Cons: broker is insane
Broker is completely bipolar. You never know what the mood will be from one minute to the next. Constantly told to do personal errands that are not business related. Never really get a day off because you get bombarded with phone calls at all hours. Even after I left I was getting phone calls asking how to handle certain tasks.

RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee), Shelby Twp, MIDecember 29, 2014
I started as a receptionist while attending high school. During a typical day at work, I answered the switch board calls and directed customers to the desired destination. I greeted customers, sales persons, and visitors and directed them to the right area. Data entry for new listings and trained agents how to use MLS services.

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, 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.

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 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.

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 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.
