Realtor (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – July 25, 2016
When I worked for Weichert Realtors the office just opened. It is well appointed with nice furniture and office equipment. In the front there is a conference room where you can bring clients. You can also sign up for desk duty, where you answer the phone in the lobby and hope it is some one calling to buy or list their home. They also have access to a Do Call List, which is all the people you can cold call on the phone.
As a new Realtor the commission split is lower than you can get at other companies.
PA Licensed Realtor (Current Employee) – Montgomery.Delaware and Chester Counties – September 19, 2016
My successes are determined by educating myself as well as prospecting and marketing. I have done well to market myself as well as increase my sales by placing myself in the right places to network and make good contacts.
Salesperson (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – July 21, 2016
Weichert Realtors helped me grow my own business and has supported me since the beginning. They will take the time to train you and teach you everything you need to know in the very beginning of the year. My office also holds weekly meetings to ensure that we are moving together not only as a group, but as individuals to grow our businesses and help our clients as best we can.
Owner/Broker (Former Employee) – Peckville Pa – May 24, 2016
My ownership role was to operate and oversee all aspects of the Real Estate company, recruit, hire, train and manage the agents and staff, sell & list properties, oversee all transactions, review contracts ands assure clients of a satisfied experience. This was a brand new start up operation from scratch. I took the Weichert Realtors corporate training advice of starting new agents and teaching them the proper way of doing the Real Estate business. I trained them all from the schooling process through the Fast Track Program we offered in house. I mentored most of them as well and lead by example. I started the company with no agents and we had 21 functioning agents at the 3 year mark when I sold the company to my previous employer.
Great compensation and flexibility
my wife was relocated to florida and we were seperated for 10 months till I sold business
Real Estate Assistant (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – May 11, 2016
It was a great job financially I'd say but it was so temporary for me that it was on a day-to-day basis. I was called in for as needed and the first time I had ever done something like that; although it was challenging it was a great learning experience that I accomplished and overcame.
Realtor (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – April 21, 2016
As a professional realtor in the central Florida area my daily activities included showing properties, advising investors, scheduling inspections, transaction coordination, training individual and teams in techniques, goals, motivation and profit generation. I learned how to accomplish anything your mind is focused on. The management team at Wiechert is very supportive and encouraging. My co-workers were very motivating and supportive as well as displayed team support. The hardest part of my position was work balance. The most enjoyable part of this position was helping families obtain their dream home and investors learn techniques to accomplish their goals of investments. I also enjoyed the flexibility of traveling a lot.
Sales Agent (Current Employee) – Whitemarsh, PA – January 20, 2016
I love working with the Whitemarsh team! Actually, I love working with the Jenkintown team too! Real estate sales can be isolated and competitive in some companies, but Weichert builds a team spirit so that all help one another. It's great to know a colleague of mine will go an extra mile to help out and ensure communication for potential clients can get to the right place.
Working in a call center is something that is difficult to do for more than 6 months. The turnover rate is very high. Management is tight, they listen in on your phone calls without your knowledge, they have daily stats posted for everyone to see, there is a strict quota that must be met or your job will be in jeopardy. The quotas were sometimes unrealistic and not within your control. The management would listen in on your phone calls without your knowledge and evaluate your ability to generate additional sales. Sedentary work environment with very little interaction between coworkers. The hardest part of the job was the lack of variety in the day. Another drawback was that they operate 9:00 am to 9:00 pm 7 days a week and on holidays. Working on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights as well as holidays (including 4th of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day and Christmas Eve) leaves little time for enjoyment.
Real Estate Agent (Current Employee) – Melbourne, FL – October 12, 2015
They are very kind and personable people. They will help you when you first get there with filling out paperwork and how to go about getting clients. They have weekly meetings to keep the staff up to date and comfortable with each other.
Appointment Setter (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – October 6, 2015
I would call private home owners to set appointments for the agents to meet with them. I would track the number of appointments set for the agents as well as how many of those appointments turned into something.
