Martha Turner

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.

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. Definitely recommend.

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.

Ocean Reef Sotheby’s

Ocean Reef was bought out by Sotheby's about two years ago. The current broker wants to weed out agents. With the changes to Sotheby's, I received no leads, no real help at all and I had to create everything from scratch. I netted about 54% since I had to pay Sotheby's 6% on top of my split.

My license is hanging with Sotheby's but I'm not actively working due to an ill family member. Sotheby's has tremendous experience and knowledge within the real estate industry. It's a great place to be if you're good at luxury sales and have experience with high-end clientele.

I joined because of the good reputation, but One Sotheby's promised me the world and nothing has come to fruition. MAJOR empty promises and I am not happy at all! They were great to work for but almost too laid back and communication was not great.

I have had an incredible time. Sotheby's is THE biggest name in Luxury Real Estate. If you want to deal in luxury properties, this is a good place to build your skillset. You get out of it what you put into it. The people are amazing and very friendly. The morale is good and great vibes overall.
