Realtor.com® helps people realize a core human need: finding a place to call home. This purpose-driven team has assisted millions in their next moves — a time that is filled with both excitement and joy, but that can also be overwhelming.
“At Realtor.com, we’ve been a driving force for one of the single biggest transformative periods in the real estate industry,” the company says. “We accomplish this by developing new and better ways to make buying, selling, renting, and living in homes easier and more rewarding for everyone, because we believe that everyone deserves a home of their own. We’re on a mission to empower consumers of all backgrounds and all income levels with personalized options, and clear explanations of their pros and cons, putting them back in control of their personal home journey.”
Realtor.com offers an innovative and hyper-functional home search with an exhaustive listings platform, as well as editorial content to instill confidence in future homeowners. It also connects buyers and sellers with agents that match their unique needs.
Realtor.com.com boasts more than 90 million unique users a month, which means that the company plays a leading role as one of the world’s largest real estate networks. Nevertheless, Realtor.com remains a mid-sized company that offers a human touch.
“We gain the respect and loyalty of our consumers by getting the basics right, such as educating via our editorial content and having comprehensive and accurate listings,” the company tells Fairygodboss. “We earn their delight and trust by being transparent, making each visit more tailored and assistive, seamlessly connecting the humans that help along the way and by ultimately creating a remarkable and frictionless experience for buying, selling or renting a home.”
Ensuring employees are happy and healthy with great benefits.
Realtor.com doesn’t only help its clients find their next home, it also aspires to be a home for its employees, the place where they are free to be their full selves, do their best work, and unleash their potential every day. “People are our foundation” is a core value that drives employees as they serve consumers well, innovate with speed, and hold themselves and each other accountable for excellence in all they do. Realtor.com seeks to be there in every way for its employees, providing the comprehensive benefits, flexible work options and support employees need to help them change the world of real estate, one home at a time.
An example of this philosophy, the company recently implemented an unlimited paid time off (PTO) policy for exempt employees and separate and accruable PTO/sick time for hourly employees, to ensure that employees can step away from work to spend time with family, manage their wellbeing, or any other needs. The company also offers a competitive parental leave policy.
“Our parental leave policy provides eligible employees who have at least six months of service with up to 20 weeks of maternity and/or parental leave to care for a newborn child or a child who has been placed with the employee for adoption or foster care for a primary caregiver and four weeks for a secondary caregiver,” the company explains.
The company also offers a wealth of additional caregiving options, including back-up child and elder care; a network for sourcing sitters, nannies or pet caregivers; resources for parents of aging parents and special needs children with chronic physical or mental health challenges; family planning and lactation benefits; and more. Employees can tap into a number of programs providing support for mental health and improving sleep. And every employee is subscribed to the company wellness platform and can take unlimited classes, from their first day.
Other key benefits offered by Realtor.com include:
Tuition reimbursement up to $5,000 per calendar year for degree programs / courses from accredited institutions
Educational and professional development programs through their own RDC Academy platform
Charitable gift matching of up to $500 annually per employee, and many opportunities throughout the year to volunteer and give back in the communities where employees live
A personalized service award program to acknowledge hard work and commitment
Discount programs for home loans, retail, electronics, phones, gyms and more.Realtor. com’s emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
As part of its goal to celebrate diversity and create a culture where everyone feels fully at home, Realtor.com approaches its D&I strategy through five lenses:
Awareness: Educate, increase awareness and set clear expectations with employees when it comes to embracing diversity, identifying unconscious biases and promoting inclusion
Process: Ensure that all practices, policies and processes are fair and equitable. One example of this is how they remove referral source data in support of unbiased candidate selection
Accountability: Reinforce their commitment to diversity and inclusion and hold everyone accountable through process, measurement, analytics and feedback
Employee Engagement: Support and encourage employee involvement in D&I efforts
External Impact: Use their brand, company mission and strategic partnerships as a mechanism to force positive change within the housing industry
Further, Realtor.com offers voluntary employee resource groups (ERGs), which help foster a diverse, inclusive workplace. One of these groups is the Inspiring Women @ RDC community, a group where employees can learn from and support one another through networking and educational conferences and events. The company also has additional groups providing support and community for Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, and employees with disabilities, chronic or invisible illnesses, and their families and allies. All of these groups are employee-created and -led, and are intended to create a safe space to celebrate who they are, engage in dialogue and learning, support one another, and inform and educate our employees about the history and uniqueness of these communities in our midst.
“We celebrate the power of unique differences and shared similarities,” the company says.
