My heart is alive with the sound of music but not my office.

Paul - I wouldn't know because I never go to my office, although it is available to me. I prefer to work from home.

I work out of my home so I would have to ask those who 'live in the office":))Endre
When I affiliated with an offer it was like a zoo of wild animals ... agents in cubicles having conversations on speaking phones, agents talking (yelling) across the room to each other rather than getting up and having a conversation ... (think conference room).... and why I could never work in the office environment. TOO MANY DISTRACTIONS. Yes, music was playing, fingernails were being painted, the list goes on and on.
Fred Griffin, on leave...
My office recently is my home and I do not play music when I work.
Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington - not heard the background music in my office - yet. Though agents can play light music in their cubicles - with headphones on...lol
I have a private office and I play music when I need it.

This is like the temperature in the office subject. Too hot or too cold debates
TV news mostly. One can pay a fee and have a TV in his office.
we have earphones
I really haven't noticed since I work in my home office - allow? Can they stop me if I have a head set on?
What is this, communist US?
Yes, but I don't often as I'm on the phone a lot.
No musac in office but I have a radio in my office.
No, but sometimes we will have NPR or a motivational tape playing.
I spend very little time in the brokers office...those that do tend to not be productive
No. Too distracting
I only go and pick up my mail once a week, and have not noticed if there is music, will have to pay attention next time I am in.
No, we don't have background music playing.
No music in the small office
Yes music is played very softly in the office. Agents don't play music separately. When at home I have it playing.
No we don't have music playing surround type (don't know many offices who do) but that doesn't prevent you from playing Pandora at your desk or in your private office..I just don't choose too.
None of the companies that I worked for back in the day allowed music in the office. Too many cubicles, too many private rooms. It would have been a cacophony.
We all have pretty much private offices and can play music. They have asked that we don't live stream music on the company connection as it uses up the bandwidth and slows our internet searches down.
We always have background music.
I work from home, I have music throughout the house if I want or just in my office.
Real estate office? What is this office of which you speak? LOL I can listen to my music or pod casts Virtually Anywhere.
We have no background music. Most listen with earbuds.
Our office does have background music. I wish it would be turned down a notch.
No music in our office, come to think of it in 4 offices I work out of non had music.
Paul our offices are in our home so at times one of us will have music on but nothing loud or jarring. Most of the time we're on the phone and it gets kind of noisy - especially Mr Banana - just kidding!
Our office does not play background music. However, they do allow agents to have music in their offices, though it's rare anyone takes advantage of that. If someone wants to listen to music, they usually just plug headphones into their phones.
I play music in my office all the time. So long as I am not on the phone I find it motivational.
Good question. I would think ear phones are the way to go. What if everyone plays their own music, or does someone choose? The antique store under my office sometimes puts her BBC news on pretty loud and it comes up through the wall. But then, I have people sitting in the courtyard below having a good time, and it just becomes white noise. But to have someone come into my office and start playing music? Not big enough of a space.
I work from home and I play pandora all the time.
as long as the music in their office is only loud enough for them to hear.... I play music when I'm in my office....I have a small wireless speaker....
I allowed music, at low volume, in private offices and earphones in cubicle spaces for those that desired!
No background music but, agents can play whatever music they want to play in their own office space!
I am so distracted by background music - I'm so glad our office doesn't allow this!
There is one agent that plays his radio at the office if it is too loud the hearing aids come out!
At home, if the better half is here there is something on and as at the office the hearing aids come out!
No music is played in the office however I can play music or stream news or anything I want in my private office. I don't however as it's a distraction for me.
Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington No music in my office.
I do not play any back ground music. I play a radio all day and keep at a level for me.
I think it should be like on airplanes, use headphones.
I allow background music in my home office, though it's normally CNN.
No sir, we also have no rules against it.
Yes we have RM elevator music or is that balloon music? We are also allowed to play music but it has to be low in our office. Every once in awhile someone decides to rock out.
My home office plays news in the background!!!
Rarely do I go to the office. I work from home and prefer quiet.
We did not play background music, and nor did our agents. A
only individual music
My office does not play music although some agents have music on in their offices, so yes to the second question.
I walk into my office maybe once or twice a month and have never paid attention... but I don't think so. And I have no idea about what agents can or can't do in their private offices, as I don't keep one at my brokerage (we have no cubicles). Considering what they pay to have a private office, I would think they can do whatever they wish in them with respect to music.
