The Training is Phenomenal there is literally no way to fail as a new agent starting with Berkshire Hathaway from mentor programs to excellent training calendars I have learned so much in a short amount of time.

I do wish there were more group trainings maybe not cut as much into agent earnings in the mentor program but I’m sure that’s on a broker by broker basis.

Don’t sleep in Berkshire Hathaway it’s great having such a widely known brand behind you and they offer so much training on our online portal plus we get discounts other brokerages could only dream of.

Our office admin is great at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices! Great commercial leadership. My sponsor who talked me into joining. Working on getting friends to come over or joining after getting licensed.

Don't start charging monthly fees. They started with a new 98.00 fee. I was told it was for a new program. It is for residential. I only do commercial. This is not right and unethical

They are a really family-oriented brokerage and make sure that the agents have all the knowledge necessary to be successful. They are very hands-on, and the broker is always available. I can talk to him day or night with any questions I might have. He has also been in the business for quite a long time, so he has great knowledge and is successful.

They're great. They respond quickly, provide continuing education classes, and are very supportive. If that's all that you're looking for and with low fees, you should join.

There were no leads and I had to take a side job full time to earn a living. Berkshire provided no support or mentorship which made it difficult for someone new like me to grow in this business.

I'm spending too much time & money on marketing and I really want to have some leads coming in so I can work on those and grow my pipeline. I prefer to work with buyers & would like to be part of a team as well. My split is 60/40. I pay for E&O, Supra, MLS access fees, and fees for the county I'm in.

I had a very productive working relationship with Berkshire. The only reason I had to leave was because I moved to be closer to family in Arizona. I am currently looking for a brokerage with good commission splits, a strong reputation, and good morale.

No longer practicing real estate

I'm actually not practicing right now. I'm still in the HomeServices department, but I've taken a different direction (more on the administrative side). I think the commissions are good if you're practicing full time, which I was not, so I think that's the issue. If you're not really practicing full time, then the monthly fee can be a little bit high. They do provide extensive training. Leads are insufficient in my opinion

They made empty promises about leads.... I'm a great self starter and very driven to succeed in this business, but only got one referral from them, everything else has been on my own. On the 1st year with them, I did over $1 million in production.

I've been with Berkshire Hathaway since 2017. However, my license is hung with assistant status and I can't work deals as I don't have E&O insurance. I know how to generate leads (I am very social and outgoing, and not afraid to even go do door knocking). I like the fast pace, but the agent I work for at Berkshire Hathaway can't afford me full time anymore. I am ready to branch out and grow my own business...and VERY ready to be in sales full time!

Berkshire Hathaway has been a good starting ground for me. But the low team morale and commission split has led me to seek better opportunities. I'd like for there to be more support, a better team morale and a great working environment.

I was with Berkshire Hathaway for over a decade. My split was 80/20 with a cap of $12,000. I ended up leaving due to it becoming a bit stagnant after all the years. For the last several years, I have been selling on a part time basis, since I have been in property management.

No support!

I'm not happy with Berkshire Hathaway due to no support & they are unresponsive - I'm VERY frustrated here!! When you're training, the commission splits are very low - I am currently only at a 56% Split. My fees are about $140 each month.
