How is race or ethnicity talked about at Berkshire Hathaway?

Pros

Some training. Some support. Some camaraderie. Lots of motivational speakers and celebrations

Cons

Lots of celebrations of people whose business practices are dishonest, lots of sexism, zero persons of color in local management role - none at all, new agents split is extremely high versus the industry and extremely out of balance with training and technology tools - we don’t even have an app. Lots of fees - you’ll pay almost $20,000 to the company before you get to keep more than half of your earnings, in addition to fees for every single thing, except for some free post cards, they even get people to pay them for a agent marketing program that only advertises the brokerage. Very high pressure to coerce clients into using overpriced mortgage services. Toxic by design - no pay equity.

Advice to Management

Pay people fairly, end sexism, end coercion, stop being stereotypical aloof realtors, maybe hire a black or brown person as a broker - maybe actually hire one broker per office instead of promising access to a broker when that broker is there three days a week or less.
