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.

What are the fees for?

I only got 2 transactions since being there and I've got no support of any kind. I have to get my own leads which make growing my business difficult. The fees are high for the little I get in return.

I've been in the real estate industry for 5 years and I've been with Berkshire since 2017. I recently worked a couple of big commercial deals for grocery stores and restaurants with them. After being in real estate for 5 years, I think I've outgrown the residential side of Berkshire. I want to venture into commercial real estate full time.

Berkshire Hathaway was recommended to me by a good friend. It is a good Brokerage, but not a good fit for myself at this time. This location doesn't believe in teams. For new agents, I'm wondering if I need a team for support. I was told I'd get a mentor and never did. They are really transaction driven. There's also a broker at Berkshire who also told me that: "You're not ready for listings..." and this was really upsetting for me.

I wasn't happy with Berkshire Hathaway as there was no team network in the company. I personally believe I'm an efficient worker and would grow and develop wherever I'm in. I have consistently outperformed the average list-to-sale ratio every year. Because of that, I was able to get 80/20 splits.

I was with Berkshire Hathaway since 2019. The reason I left is that there's an inadequate commission split. They only give you 60% of what you sell. I left to join a team with higher morale.

It was slow moving with Berkshire Hathaway. There were no leads. Ended up moving to a new brokerage with better lead generation, training, and mentorship.

I've been in real estate for 15 years in California. I have nothing but good things to say. Overall, there was great communication within the brokerage. Berkshire Hathaway has a good reputation and strong infrastructure.

Slow pace

Berkshire is a much slower pace brokerage than what I'm used to. I've been with Berkshire for several years with over $20 million in volume sold.
