I like the Sotheby's International Realty global networking possibilities - although all offices seem to have different guidelines which makes it somewhat difficult.

Global network supposedly makes referrals and networking easier.

Sotheby's company owned offices are behind in the commission schedule for commission split versus the franchise offices. Franchise offices pay 90% and company owned still operate on the outdated tier program with 70% being the highest.

The support is amazing at Sotheby's International Realty. We can count on quick help if needed. Managers are easy to reach. Hands down better than compass

Would like COE trip to continue and/or define what will happen

I like the sales meeting and break out group meetings

Sotheby's offers much help if needed and you will receive help from other agents within the community of Sotheby’s. Their educational programs at Sotheby’s tends to be current on tech and they deliver. The referral system is awesome, I have used it several times. Most agents connect immediately if emails are sent out for help. The staff at Briggs Freeman Sotheby‘s is so helpful and always there for me. Their heritage is important to me

They could improve on keeping office staff, newer agents have to pay much more to be in the Sotheby’s family. There cut of each transaction seems to increase if ones production stays the same.

If you would like to learn the latest technology and be updated constantly on social media, changes in contracts and new laws pertaining to your work as an agent, then Sotheby's international is for you.

As a 20 year veteran of real estate, my association with Sotheby’s catapulted my business to a whole new level within the luxury market. The global name recognition, branding and marketing tools are the best in the industry. Exposure is key to a property and Sotheby's is unmatched in the field.

Sotheby’s is not a place for beginners or those who aren’t comfortable in an aggressive and competitive environment. There is no hand-holding here. And, quite honestly, that’s what helps make Sorheby’s the elite brand it is. No improvement needed on the top level. Each brokerage is different so that can also make a difference in comfortability level.

Sotheby’s is where you need to be if you’re reputable, experienced and focused on the luxury brand. It is not a place for beginners or the easily intimidated.

I really appreciate Sotheby's detailed Marketing plan and the staff is amazing, agent services, broker ethics. The sales managers are extremely helpful and encouraging.

I do really miss in person meetings, event and networking with other brokerage affiliates.

Sotheby's is a very well known brokerage. People recognize the brokerage, and you get more and more business because of it. It is very beneficial for agents to start off their real estate career with as much experience as they can get to learn the ropes.

We pretty much have everything in house. We have a great support staff, a great marketing team, and everything in the company works really well. We have the kind of support you need when you need help, and there are always other agents. I am an agent and an assistant so for me everything is good. I think that commission splits are fair in terms of the amount of support that we are getting (in other words, they provide a lot of value!).

Sotheby's is OK, but I really need better leads and better splits. I want to be paid for the actual work I put in, and don't feel like that is happening.

My volume in Texas was about $5 million, but I struggled after moving to Florida. I was with Sotheby's Realty for 2 years and their lead generation was bad. I'm currently not working right now, but once I get re-started, I will make sure it's with a broker with a good network.

Attention to detail is needed due to the caliber of the clientelle you work with. If you don't have a network of high net worth individuals, it could not be the best opportunity for you. Like most real estate brokerages, you set the pace of your own work.

Global

The best part is we are affiliated with a global company, and it has a good reputation. Right now, I don't have any complaints. I think the commission splits and fees are fair. They provide support, trainings, and everything that an agent needs to grow their business.
