Need to be willing to prospect

Good company if you put the work in, work your leads and follow up. Not for people looking for part-time work or passive income. Definitely need to put the hours in

Pros

Cons

Fun and Challenging

Fast paced, high energy environment. Lots of smart people work here and agents have big $’s on the line, which can also create stress for support staff. But it’s also a great place to get experience and learn from the pros. Need to be a self starter who doesn’t need hand holding to be successful here.

Classy and Refined

When ever I tell someone I work with Sotheby's, the first thing they say is wow, that's a luxury company. Indeed it is, but you also receive excellent guidance and support from management and other agents.

Pros

Office and outdoor work setting

Cons

Stressful sometimes

Inclusive, positive, and caring company.

At Marketplace Sothebys, you definitely get out what you put in. They allow you to move at your own pace, and are always there to support their agents. They live up to the sign they have posted for employees; Work Hard and Be Nice.

Fun, productive workplace. Would highly recommend working for this company in New Zealand.

Great management team. Felt secure and appreciated the whole time I worked there. Would 100% work here again if I get the chance to after I graduate.

Strong Support

Sotheby's was a very interesting experience. Marketing support and management were great. Dealing with other brokers was difficult at times. You do have a lot of opportunity to grow, especially if you are recruited by another team.

Pros

Amazing homes

Cons

Freedom

Wonderful company. Weekly meetings, caravans. I learned to serve as an educator for my clients. When one approaches their customers as a patient educator, it is much more appreciated than a typical sales approach.

Pros

Dressing up for work

Cons

When recessions arrive

Amazing Company

Vintage Sotheby’s International Realty has been great to work with as they are local owners and brokers. They know Napa Valley and we all know each other. They are very supportive and transactions go smooth.

Well run by good, supportive management

Excellent management and colleagues. Fair commission splits for good producers. Really don't like being required to buy advertising space in annual publications but it's not too expensive.

Pros

Offices in very nice locations

Cons

Lack of parking at times

It's alright

I think it is whatever you make of it, and depending on the location you could be part of a great team. I just feel satisfied here but don't feel I have grown much
